    Just looking for general opinions regarding the rumored iPhone screen size (4.7in) increase and the iPad rMini. I currently have the rMini but plan on getting the iPhone 6 when it's released and was thinking that maybe I should go with an iPad Air instead due to the bigger difference in screen size compared to the new iPhone. Please chime in with your views...

    IPad rMini or Air + iPhone 6

    I'd say yes, get an Air. I have both and although I love the portability of the rMini I do find myself 'pinching' out to enlarge text. No such problem with the air. Plus it's extremely light too. I'm looking forward to new iPhone too. Can't wait!

    Currently have a Mini and I'll probably go the iPhone 6 + Air route as well.

    I'm getting an iPhone 6 as well. It will simply replace my 5.
    I'll continue to use my iPad Air at home but my iPad rMini when away from home which is most of the time. I doubt I will upgrade either one of my tablets, not this year anyway.

    I have a note 3 (5.7") but got an rMini after, and I find both have their uses. I owned an Air before and prefer the rMini for it's size haha but love the phone's size too.

    Thinking about getting a 6L , but maybe I could reconsider with rMini in hand as well. I like having both platforms right now.

    It's size will offset the larger size iPhones.

    I say Air, that is what I have and think it will be good match. I find mini to small. Son has one and I am always enlarging text to read it.

    iPhone 6 + iPad Air would be a good combination. The larger screen on the new iPhone 6 will already be good on the go for a smaller screen and ultra portable device. When you want a larger screen size in a larger portable device the Air will satisfy that need. I will be considering the soon to be released 5.7" Samsung Note 4 or a 5.5" iPhone 6 as possible ultra portable replacements for my 5" SG-S4 phone.
