I think all the talk about the mini being dead is accurate. I just bought one brand new from Apple and it came with iOS 10 on it. Every device I've bought directly from Apple always has the current version of iOS. I tried to order directly from AT&T and the three-day shipping window came and went then changed to a month. Best Buy, Target, B&H Photo, all the usual suspects had the Wifi version, but no LTE models. And before anyone rips me for buying one, it's in addition to my Pro and the replacement for my first gen mini, I just like the form-factor of the mini best for reading books so figured I better grab one before they're all but vanished. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
