Anonymous, 29 Jun 2017Listen Apple, there's still a huge market for iPad Mini. Do something about it, please.Stop buying iPad Pros, boycott it! Its a selling gimmick from Apple to boost profit only. Then maybe iPad mini will get some love.
See what iPad Pros have done to the iPad market.
1. They suck up all the good CPUs.
2. They introduce worthless accessories, like the smart keyboard / pencil.. without mouse.
3. The price shoot thru the roof. While iPad mini should have A10, and iPad should have A10x now, while cost the same as before.
4. They try to attack the Pro and business markets, only to be laughed at by Pro users and business people. i.e. achieve nothing.
5. They spend worthless time innovating with the pencils, as if the entire Pro industry are artist and drawing people.
6. They totally destroy the smart cover usefulness with putting you in the lock screen, so you have to press the touchID or home button to access your home page if you have notification or passcode enabled.
So simple to make a good iPad product.
1. SMS / Voice call.
2. Mouse / trackpad support, for those who like a keyboard.
3. Revamp smart cover, to work well with touch iD, simplify the process.
I just bought mine last week and so far everything's great EXCEPT when it comes to video streaming. I love the big screen so it's perfect for watching videos which is the main reason I bought this but when it comes to watching on Youtube or videos on the web its really really bad. I cant mainly blame it to my Internet connection because I've compared the load time from my old android tab. What should I do?
nexus 98, 01 Jul 2017Hi everyone plss how's the sound quality iam curious plss tell me is it worse or same as air 1... moreI forgot to add. The quality of refinement in the highest volume is not the best. It's in the ok margin. But it is not the clearest. Don't be discouraged to buy. It's just not the best. It is not as bad as you think. It rly won't catch your attention until you rly listen to it.
nexus 98, 01 Jul 2017Hi everyone plss how's the sound quality iam curious plss tell me is it worse or same as air 1... moreHey, it's quite ok. I just bought one yesterday and it works like a charm. It has loud speakers. Louder than my a5 2016 and 2017. Like a lot louder. It can fill a room quite ok. As long as it's just a bed room. It's pretty loud. Also I don't think downgrading is a recommended option. For the price it's rly worth to buy this new one. Although if you have the cash go with the pro.
Hi everyone plss how's the sound quality iam curious plss tell me is it worse or same as air 1 how how good is it slashing their price means downgrading something right
I Sold my iPad 4 for 199$ just because of iOS 11 and this iPad,
well even there is some price difference in my Country like 390$ for 32gb instead of 329$ i still can call this affordable, for an iPad, and for iOS 11.
i just need hope there is no lag since A9 chip need to push 1536x2048 pixel instead 1080x1920 pixel on 6s+
best p/p ipad.
due to the non-laminated screen, it's not a huge deal while retina display is so beautiful.
no pen - no problem, i can use adonit pen as well
no smart keyboard - no problem, i can use 3rd bluetooth keyboard as well (like logitech,..)
40 grams heavier is really a big deal for you? absolutely not.
i love it.
Listen Apple, there's still a huge market for iPad Mini. Do something about it, please.
Apple is simplifying its iPad product lines, and trying to dominate the market by offering:
iPad for regular users with value price.
iPad Pro for power users with premium price.

Bumblebee88, 09 Jun 2017Should I get this or the iPad mini 4? I am an iPad 4 user and is thinking of an upgrade to... moreiPad mini 4 won't be slow at all but I recommend this device 1 because it support better multi tasking due to better chipset 2 it will be easier for you to taking notes using your stylus because of a bigger screen. other than that I think the only difference is size of the screen.
Should I get this or the iPad mini 4?
I am an iPad 4 user and is thinking of an upgrade to help in my post-graduate studies. I like the screen size and portability of the Mini 4 but I'm worried that it will slow down after some time because the Mini 4 is already 1.5years old.
Ricko3000, 01 Jun 2017should i upgrade to this cause i have a ipad 3 its not working well?What is your usage of your iPad???? If ordinary tasks and playing games Is your purpose it is more than enough. finally apple came up with something valuable for purchase and that's this device I purchased an iPad Air 2 1.5 year ago for 130$ more on a lower specs and both perform relatively the same I played some games on both of them are very smooth but if you are a graphist or a designer go for pro model they handle designing apps better. There is no obvious difference for playing games between pro ones and air 2 or this =)
Brenden, 05 Jun 2017This is a budget iPad, not an iPad Pro successor.It may be a "budget iPad", but it's a pretty sweet one for the price ($300 from staples.com). Does everything I need it to do and does it well.
