Sadly it looks like my daughters iPad Mini 2 is slowly packing it in. The touch screen is starting to have issues down one side and while it still performs bloody well for a five year old device, it does chug along with some new titles. That iPad Mini 2 really was an excellent piece of kit too and I’m sad they stopped keeping the iPad mini in line with the full-size iPads in terms of CPU… or at all updated lately.
So I’m about to be in the market for a new iPad and the idea of a larger unit with her own Apple Pencil has my daughter pretty excited… now to see if her current mini can hold out for a little bit longer under her birthday in a couple of months (or at least until Apple release new models). While I’m sure the 2018 iPad with it’s Pencil 1 support would be just fine, I’d much prefer the 2019 model since it’s usually at the same price point (well until recently new products stayed at the old price).
So what do you think the new iPads will bring?
