Personally, I don't know. I really don't think the iPad mini product line is long for this world, but I also don't have any compelling reasons to suggest that it's going away as soon as this next round of iPad updates. Next year, I could picture a discontinuation at the worst. This year, I honestly couldn't say what I think will happen. What say you? Before you comment, let's review some of the facts: - Last year: (a) Google discontinued the Nexus 7, the iPad mini's chief competitor product in favor of a 9" tablet and a 6" phablet, and (b) Apple only gave the iPad mini a gold color option, TouchID, AppleSIM capability on cellular models, while leaving the design otherwise untouched (save for a slightly different camera bezel). The Air 2, on the other hand, got literally every possible upgrade it could have. - The Mini tablet (7.0" to 8.4") market is in the process of being cannibalized by Phablets such as the Galaxy Note and the iPhone Plus series of phones. This is shifting the focus that was once had on the smaller tablets back to the larger tablets and now Phablets as well. - Apple is rumored to announce one final iPad mini (iPad mini 4) which catches up with the iPad Air 2 in terms of features and design changes before they cull the iPad mini product line altogether. However this rumor has been contradicted before. So, I ask you, don't tell me what you WANT to see Apple do here. Tell me, with facts and honest reasoning, what you THINK Apple will do here. Again, opinions and desires are useless to this discussion. I can assume that you're an iPad mini fan just like I am and we don't need to go into how it's the best thing for you since sliced bread. Looking for insight, not opinions. /rant Anyway, what do you think Apple will do regarding the iPad mini this fall?
