5 Reasons to Buy the iPad Mini 5 & 6 Reasons Not To

Skip If You Want Smart Keyboard Support

When Apple released the new iPad Pros it also released a new Smart Keyboard for the iPad Pro.

If you're unfamiliar, the Apple Smart Keyboard includes two angles which makes it easy to use it while the iPad is sitting on a table or sitting in your lap. 

It also connects the iPad with a Smart Connector. This means there are no wires to deal with and no charging necessary. You just connect the device and start typing. 

The accessory is pretty expensive, it's $179 for the 11-inch model and $199 for the 12.9-inch model but we've really enjoyed it.

Unfortunately, the iPad mini 5 doesn't come a Smart Keyboard option (it's supposed to be used in your hand rather than as a laptop) which means those of you interested in the accessory must upgrade to the new iPad Air 3 or to the iPad Pro line.

    The iPad Mini 4 (128GB) is on sale now for $250 and might even drop more on Black Friday. I haven’t heard anything about an imminent iPad Mini 5 release other than this story (I suppose a minor spec bump is possible but I think Apple is pretty much set for the Christmas shopping season with their lineup). In any case a Mini 5 would surely cost double the aforementioned sale price or perhaps $399 for a (32/64GB model). If it’s basically a processor bump without major changes then it might be a pass, but a iPad Pro-like redesign would be worth considering. If the latter I wouldn’t expect it until next year.

    People buy only for prestige and apple branding, these are overrated.

    a 6.5″ 16:9 iPhone XS Max screen is different from a 7.9″ 4:3 iPad Mini screen. Even if you have an XS Max, you will still feel significant difference when using an iPad Mini. Trust me!
