    what would be best to use from my iPhone5 to my mini? should i connect through Bluetooth or WiFi? is there any major difference in data speed or distance to connect or stay connected?

    Bluetooth will better on your battery. Wifi sucks the battery quick if your using the hotspot.

    This ^^

    Bluetooth 4.0 consumes a lot less than wifi

    BT is a lot slower. When I use BT with my ipad 4 using LTE, my speeds are less than 2 Mbs, with wifi, over 15 Mbs.

    thank you.

    looks like: if i need speed i will use WiFi and if battery is low i will use Bluetooth.
