    Anyone else done this after getting a new iPhone? Even though the screen is smaller than the mini, it is just so much nicer feature-wise and waaaaaaaaaaaaay faster!
    I'd think that id want a new iPad, but I really just kinda want to use the iPhone. Makes me wonder if the 6 Plus would be a good two in one device. Loving my 5s and mini combo now though.

    Same here.
    My ipad mini messaged me stating that we need counseling:D
    It feels left out and avoided since the 6 Plus came in the picture.

    Yeah the big screen of the iPad is nice; but when you have an even bigger screen on a laptop, and a nice iPhone with up to date features, the iPad becomes not so necessary.

    This must be your first iPhone. I and others have never gotten into the iPad because of the iPhone, whereas some people ditch the iPad only after upsizing to the 6+.

    Actually no I have had an iPhone for a year. And an iPod touch before I got the iPad.

    And some still prefer their iPads even when they have the latest phone. :D

    My rMini & my husband's iPad Air see as much usage as they have over the last year. Getting the 6 didn't change that, just as getting the 5 didn't change our usage of the original iPad.

    Different strokes and all that...

    The iPad mini is the only ipad we ever had. I held off for this long because my gut told me it would just gather dust. Wife insisted on getting one so I bought it for her two Christmases ago. There isn't a single piece of technology that I've ever purchased that we've used less. We both tend to go for our phones. Now that I have a 6 plus I don't see ever even thinking about an iPad again unless apple adds some unforeseen exclusive software or capabilities to the iPad line.

    So why would the 5s change anything all of sudden?

    Cause it is much newer tech than what I have in the mini. I came from a 4s.
