    Bought an iPad mini 4 last week, love the device, but the lightning connector seems 'loose'.

    I have an iPhone 5 and 6s and when I plug a connector, it makes a click. The iPhone is "firmly" attached to the connector. I can pull the cord and the iPhone will be dragged along.
    But for this iPad mini 4, the lightning connector doesn't make a click and can be very easily pulled out. Is that normal?

    No. my connector is just as tight on the mini as on my iPhone. If you are using the genuine Apple cable and the connection is loose, take both to your Apple Store and they will replace one or the other.

    The problem with 3rd party cables (No accusations here) is that the Lightning connector may be too fat and expand the female lightning end in your iPad causing permanent damage or be too thin so it seems loose.

    No, all my lightning connectors are originals, no 3rd party. Guess I have to take it to the store again.

    Agreed. Take both and you should be taken care of. Best of luck!
