Skip If You Own or Plan to Buy the iPhone XS Max

If you currently own the iPhone XS Max or you're planning to buy Apple's massive 6.5-inch device in the near future, the iPad Mini 5 won't have that much appeal.

The iPad mini 5 uses same 7.9-inch screen size as previous models. This isn't surprising because if it went any bigger and it would likely cannibalize 9-inch iPad sales. Any smaller and it's creeping into the iPhone XS Max's territory. 

We've been using the iPhone XS Max since launch and we don't see any reason why we'd want to pair it with an iPad Mini. 

The iPhone XS Max's 6.5-inch screen is perfect for playing games and doing work on the go, two of the primary uses of a portable tablet like the Mini line. 

It also sports excellent battery life making it perfect for a short trip in the car or long distance air travel while in Airplane Mode.

    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!
