Kiyasuriin, 23 Dec 2018sorta like Galaxy tab S4 on iOS?I just love ipad mini form factor. Just want 8.5'' horizontal display to read pdf without zooming in and out and in-housed stylus support that I don't want to lost or remember every time if I go out to take it with me.
Also, please don't take down display quality favoring lower price. It shouldn't work that way. mini always was/is a reading device major and consumption minor.
I love Android phone but not as tablet.

Will it be snap like a biscuits again?

The hardware specs might not be as great as the upcoming price increase. Apple preparing more fancy terms to overcharge its customers. Perhaps name it Ipad mini Pro . Maybe internal PRO is code for P=pricing R=rip O=Off .

I still think that touch ID is much more convenient if it is fast.

Hope iPad Mini 5 & 9.7" iPad do not kill the 3.5mm jack. However I feel the 9.7" iPad should have come with the Under Display Touch ID if it must ditch home button. Ditching the home button on the 9.7" iPad which used to be a staple of iPads since 2010 now resides in the digital dustbin. Oh yeah, now the interface of iOS is MUCH HARDER to use because we are FORCED to embrace / use GESTURES on a large screen which is cumbersome. The late Steve Jobs is possibly rolling in his grave.

Couldn't the iPad 9.7" integrate the home button function with the power button together?? Press once to go to the home screen, press twice to lock. Want to unlock? Press once to wake it up. If you press hard enough, the shut down command will ask you to slide to turn off.

Another thing, I don't see how Face ID is SECURE where many faces around the world in some instances can look almost similar. Touch ID developed by (Cr)Apple is STILL MILES AHEAD in terms of SECURITY.

rez1, 23 Dec 2018Don't want any display quality compromise in mini 5; want 8... moresorta like Galaxy tab S4 on iOS?

Don't want any display quality compromise in mini 5; want 8.5 mm when use horizontally (so, slightly larger box is okay); and stylus support with in-housed capability like galaxy; not just an external pencil.


ipad mini 2 still usable in 2018

Kiyasuriin, 23 Dec 2018//visits apple.com and scruntically searches for an A9 devi... moreI know there are A9 devices such as the iPhone 6S, 6Splus, iPad 2017, and the first gen iPad pros with their A9x chip. I meant that RIGHT NOW in the store of apple there is no A9 device that can be purchased, JUST FOR CLARIFICATION!
