If you aren't prepared to buy a new iPad mini you'll want to hold off on a pre-order until you're one hundred percent confident.
There are a few things you should do before you commit to buying the iPad mini 5.
First, you'll want to decide between the 7.9-inch iPad mini and Apple's other tablets. Again, you should go hands-on if you aren't positive about the size you want/need.
You'll also want to decide if you'll need cellular data. You'll want to examine your habits and think about how you might use iPad mini 5 down the road.
Most of you should be fine with the Wi-Fi only model, but some of you might want to spend more on a cellular-enabled model.
We also recommend researching iPad mini competitors like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and Amazon's $80 Fire HD 8.
This might take some of you a day or two, but it could longer for others. If you're feeling uneasy about a pre-order, you might want to hold back. Otherwise, you might end up with buyer's remorse.
