Buy for Solid Software Support
If you plan to keep your next iPad for a long time you should consider buying the iPad mini 5.
If you're the type of person that likes to hold onto your gadgets for three plus years, buying a model from the current generation has a lot of appeal.
Apple didn't confirm this with the device, but the iPad mini 5 should get four years (or more) of software support. That means 4+ years of new software features, security patches, and bug fixes.
While you might be tempted to go with an older (and cheaper) iPad model, support for those devices will end much sooner.
The upgraded hardware will also ensure you get the latest features from Apple. Older devices typically don't get the full version of iOS due to hardware limitations (and marketing purposes).
