Only if it's a significant upgrade over the Air. If not i'll wait till next year. I don't sell any of my tablets.

I'd have to see what the upgrades are but if I do end up buying a new one, my iPad Air will be handed down to a family member. :rolleyes:

When to sell? Depends. Sites like gazelle are wiser to new models. On the other hand, eBay and Craigslist aren't quite as responsive to new models. It's safe to do an eBay auction like a week before, but really I don't know that you're saving a ton of money for the inconvenience. On the other hand, you're talking about a tablet, not a phone.

Sold my 3.25 yr old iPad 2 last week for $300. Was in mint condition. Not a single scratch. Now all I have is an iPhone. Gonna be a rough few months but I'm holding out for Air 2. Can't wait!

I sold my original Mini back in December after the Retina Mini was widely available at most locations. I'll likely do the same this year with either my Mini or Air.

Happy iPad Air customer here, depending on the features that get added NEXT year I might upgrade then. Probably not though.

I assume I'll keep my iPad for 3 years.

And I sell none of my tech. (Mac/iPhone/iPad/... Nope)

unless iOS 8 absolutely needs 2gb ram to run smoothly on the rMini (yeah right) I'm gonna keep this for awhile. I'll be updating to the iPhone 6 ASAP though :p

I had iPad 3, iPad Mini and iPad mini Retina.

iPad mini retina is the best Apple device ever. I will sell it if the new one gets more ram. But it is really a keeper. If they announce a 5.5 inch iPhone I will probably never buy an iPad again though - and just keep the rMini.

exactly.. the ipad rMini is really a perfect ipad device for me as well. it will be hard to top. but if they include slight improvements to it, internal and touchID, then I would be itching to upgrade again. I'm not gonna lie. LOL.

My rMini is going strong, I see no reason to upgrade, regardless of what Apple may announce.

My Air is perfectly effective as is so no upgrade for me. I always wait several generations before upgrading devices anyways. I went from an iPad 2 to the Air. So, I'll probably do the same this time around and will wait 3 years or so.

Heck, I don't even have these safari reload problems or any other performance related problems. :)

I bought last year's iPad Mini w/Retina display in silver/white. I'm not as happy with the color as I thought I'd be. I have the iPhone 5s in silver/white and love the way it looks.

So, when this year's iPad Mini comes out I'll be buying one in black and giving my sister the silver/white one I have now.

If the Air is just a minor spec bump with no new features, i'll pass. The only thing I don't have currently is a rMini so i'm interested in that.

I have an iPad Air & a rMini. Don't think I will be upgrading, but I have a major weakness when it comes to Apple products. I'll have to wait and see what they announce.
