I've been contemplating an iPad for a few months and came to a crossroads between the mini 3 or Air 2. I have a iPhone 6 Plus but plan on getting a MacBook Pro next year, so either iPad decision would be close in screen size as it relates to the iPhone and MacBook respectively. With the iPad Mini 3 axed from the iPad lineup, is now the time to snag one? Does Apple stop support for devices no longer in their lineup which are technically predecessors of products still available ie. iPad Mini 1 & 2?
