Apple is really busy this two months,right? :D It is said that the iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 will be released recently, (possibly October 22, 2013). What's your opinion about the coming Apple release? Do you plan to upgrade your iPad to the new model? Why?

Just waiting for the new iPad, will consider to buy an iPad mini(compared the 1 and 2 then decide).
Hope the new iPad mini will get with retina display and better processor. :rolleyes:

I have the iPad 2 and the Mini. If the new Mini gets the Retina display and size and weight remain close I will get the Mini and give my old one to my wife. I am curious about the 5. Even if the weight is cut significantly the size would probably cause me to stay with the Mini. It is just so easy to carry around.

Not getting one this year, unless I can grab one cheap from someone at work, I'll be getting the new nexus 7 to play with until next year.

The big question.

The Air is actually closer in weight to the old mini than the old iPad.

iPad Old 613G
iPad Air 478G
Mini New 341G
Mini Old 312G

Definitely getting the 5 because I have the 3, and my wrist is getting carpal tunnel. What's your best estimate on a selling price for a mint iPad 3 wifi?

I can not decide if I want Air or Mini with retina display. I actually leaning to going back to Maxi.
I have the mini and still have to take it in to get the screen fixed :(
Does anyone think we have a an small update in spring? Like added fingerprint scanner and gold version?

No, we probably won't see another update until next November.

I currently use an iPad 2 wifi. I am trying to decide if I want to get the Air or just go with the iPad 4. I plan on getting an LTE model through AT&T's NEXT option added to my mobile share plan. To be honest, the higher end CPU and GPU don't really jump out at me as I don't do very much gaming. It's about $50 less for the 4 right now.

Europa: what do u mean u have to get the screen to mini fixed? I'm curious bc I have the mini. Wondering if it has anything to do w after a period of use the screen will all of a sudden just go blank and back to home screen? Also, I have a question. U know how pc's have to have cookies removed and such to get it working better, do Apple devices (such as my mini iPad) have a similar procedure so maybe my screen doesn't just go blank on me? Thx

I didn't say anything about an iPad screen. You're probably referring to imutter's post.

It sounds like you are having problems with apps crashing. Try rebooting your iPad every day or so. That should help it run better.
