There’s still a chance for the iPad mini to become the best iPad ever
But the company didn’t kill it, either. The 3-year old iPad mini 4 even got a mention from Tim Cook, which sounds minor but it’s important for a company that obsesses over details.
This means that the iPad mini is still in the game, and that there’s still a chance for Apple to give it an update down the road. And a Home button-less iPad mini with Face ID, tiny bezels and updated internals could very well become the best iPad Apple has ever created.
