Did you notice how Apple kind of glossed over the iPad Mini 3? They barely gave it a mention, probably because there was very little upgraded. Their main focus was on the iPad Air 2. Once again it is the 'Apple ploy', give little upgrade to the cheaper model but a huge upgrade to the more expensive model. It is the same ploy as offering the 16 GB version of their products but then jumping to the 64 GB for profit margins.
