Okay I'm torn on this one, I just purchased the 6+ and unsure if I should buy the next iteration of rMini. Any of ipad rMini owners on the same boat as me?
You sound pretty sure that the rMini 2 will be out this year.
Why wouldn't it?\
I don't think that the rMini 2 will be out this year.
Have you ever owned a mini? The difference is still quite big in comparison to any 5.5" phone.What evidence do you have that suggests it will have a second iteration that no one else has?
I personally think Apple will second guess the mini now that there is a 6+... I think its about 50/50 that the mini will get an update next month.
TouchID would be extremely useful if iOS 8 had a multiple user support, at least on the iPad.TouchID is definitely coming... It's long overdue after they skipped it last year
The 6+ won't run iPad apps. If you are using iPad only apps you will no longer have access to those.Just to be clear. Your wondering if you should get the mini as well?
I have a rMini 128gb. i love it and take it everywhere with me. I also pre-ordered the iPhone Plus 128gb.
I'm going to sell the mini. I have a MBPr 15". The size gap between them isn't worth it imo. Specially between the 3.
I currently have all 3 checked, 5s (waiting on the 6+), MBP, and rMini. hahahaNo. I don't think you should. As I posted in another thread, IMO out of the three categories:
1) iPhone or iPod Touch
2) iPad or iPad Mini
3) Macbook Pro or Macbook Air
you should pick two. I cannot imagine a scenario where someone would get three, and extensively use all three. Sure, a few people might, but they are almost certainly in the extreme minority.
What you want is a portable work machine, and a more portable play machine. If you get a third device, what would its purpose be?
I intend to have, within a month or two, an iPad. Then I will have a cheap (~$100 off contract) android phone (only used for calls/sms/maps/tethering), an iPad for mobile entertainment, my MBP for portable work, and my desktop for work and entertainment at home. All bases covered, but little overlap.
EDIT: Further note, I think the iPhone+ is encroaching on category 2 territory a bit too much. I think you might be able to justify getting a full-size iPad, if you don't also have a notebook, but choosing an iPad Mini over an iPad, when you already own an iPhone+, seems insane to me.
