5 Reasons to Buy the iPad Mini 5 & 5 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!

    On a positive note, the new iPad mini 5’s A12 Bionic chip enabled it to juggle multiple apps simultaneously in our lab. We also enjoyed fluid gameplay while playing Injustice 2. Battery-wise, the iPad Mini 5’s built-in rechargeable power source went beyond expectations. Although Apple promises up to 10 hours of runtime, in our Laptop Mag battery test, it endured at 12 hours and 40 minutes and it is good to know that Walmart is selling them. I will search if they are running any offer at https://walmartone.onl and buy it
