Wait for An Affordable Flagship
If you want a newer iPad model, but don't want to shell out for Apple's new iPad Pros and/or you aren't interested in the new eighth-generation iPad, think about waiting for the iPad Mini 6.
Apple's iPad Pros require a sizable investment. If Apple does release an iPad mini 6, it'll almost certainly be cheaper than the base iPad Pro model.
If you want a newer iPad model (better hardware, better software support, etc), but don't want to break the bank, waiting for the iPad mini 6 is certainly an option to consider.
