    So which is it? I mean, we make these things up here (its not an Apple thing) so might as well be consistent.

    According to Apple it is iPad Mini with Retina Display


    I prefer to call it Sir Retina iPadMini the second.

    I wasn't aware there had to be one. What's the abbreviation for the iPad Air?

    I used to love how "short and to the point" Apple naming was.
    - White iBook
    - Black iPhone 3G
    - White iPad 2
    - MacBook Air (Late 2010)
    - iPhone 4S (Big "S")

    But then the new New iPad 3 came out and everything quickly fell apart and the public ended up renaming things for clarity which just made it more confusing

    The new iPad = iPad 3
    MacBook Pro with Retina = rMBP, MBPwR
    Lightning Cable = Lightning name but USB2 speed
    iPad 4 = They refused to admit the prev gen was "3" but named the new one "4"?!?
    Blue iPhone 5c = Last years iPhone 5 in a permanent plastic case
    White and Gold iPhone 5s = Gold 5s (thats a small "s")
    Space Gray iPad Air = Black Air
    Silver iPad Mini with Retina = White iPad Mini 2, Mini2, rMini

    I'm hoping that some day they figure a way to streamline their offerings so we can go back to that time where their product catalog was trimmed in order to reduce confusion.

    Apple never called it the iPad 4. It was just iPad with Retina Display (Fourth Generation)

    They only have to call it iPad mini with retina display cause the first gen is still being sold without retinas

    But it's a iPad mini no more no less and that is what it should be called .

    No. He means 'iPad'.

    The new iPad is called iPad Air.

    This is the best post here -- bar none. I'm waiting for my yellow mini to ship so I can trash it, and Apple, on these forums using my yellow mini. It's so meta and recursive all at the same time. Clearly the mini is the Flagship device. Oh wait, wrong thread. Damn yellow mini!

    Either you've been away for a couple years, or simply haven't been all over the forum. But the rMBP has been the standard abbreviation for quite some time now, and so rMini was quickly coined as well, by MacRumor forum veterans :D
