John was all set to replace his iPad mini 3 with an iPad mini 5. Then Apple announced the low cost, 7th generation iPad for $329. Will he shift gears?
What’s fascinating to Frank Cioffi is how quickly sentiment towards the iPad Mini’s viability changed in the weeks since the refresh appeared.

Some of the first iPad mini reviews are coming out, and so far it sounds like Matthew Panzarino is happy with it.
I include that context here because, though the iPad Pro is a whole ass computer and really capable, it is not exactly ‘fun’ to use in non standard ways. That’s where the iPad mini has always shined and continues to do so. It really is pocketable in a loose jacket or coat. Because the mini is not heavy, it exercises little of the constant torsion and strain on your wrist that a larger iPad does, making it one-handed.
The iPad Air is a 10.5-inch model, while the iPad Mini keeps the 7.9-inch form factor.
First introduced in 2012, the iPad mini was Apple’s answer to critics calling for a more affordable iPad. Three generations later and it seems like the company might be giving up on it.
