Still cant decide to get between latest ipad or ipad mini 4, first time user here. Anyway i'm not a heavy user, just need it as my personal organizer
actually, the iPad Mini 4 128GB model which is the only one out now, will be discontinued shortly.
they will release a new iPad Mini but with A9 chip so maybe wise to wait for that.

If I'm not wrong, there's another mic at the top of the iPad. But don't worry, it is able to pick up sounds and together both mics act as noise cancelling.

Not sure whether to get iPad 2017 or Air 2. (Still using mini 3 now)
About the same price for 128GB wifi models.
Main use is surfing and watching videos.
Any advice?

First ask yourself, what are you looking or using for. Spending few extra hundreds over dollars for the upcoming new Pro line up to get the latest spec, but the question is will you even use the Pro line feature to justify your extra spending? Do you even care about the laminated and true tone display, pencil pen, smart Keyboard etc

Secondly, if you want save some money but die also want the hardware of Pro line, wait for new Pro line to launch and Apple will surely drop the iPad Pro 9.7" retail price.

Thirdly, get the new 2017 iPad with slightly old A9 chip, never even bother about Pro lineup specific feature, not using to use at all, no laminated display, faster than iPad Air 2 and save more money.

Forth, get iPad Air 2 which is no longer available at Apple Store, even more dated A8X hardware spec but with laminated display and lighter. Software support will likely to end first compare to the newer 2017 iPad, that for sure.

I am coming from iPad Air 1 to new 2017 iPad and since I never going to use the Pro line feature, I go with this 2017 iPad, not wasting my hard earn money, the speed is the win factor compare to my 4 years old iPad Air with A7 chip. Weight to me no difference since I come from iPad Air 1 which is the same physical weight and dimensions.

Once you ask yourself what you really want, it's very easy to decide by then.

Considering upgrade coz my mini 3 lags after I update to ios 10 and would like a bigger screen.
Is the display for Ipad 2017 ok for watching videos?

Check out Carousell too?

Also, I decided to stop waiting and gotten a 2nd hand iPad Pro 12.9 inch due to change of needs I'll say.

All the best for those who are still waiting!

iPad Mini 3 is same A7 processor like Mini2, they just added Touch ID... iOS 10 would be definitely be slower on that specs.

iPad 5 / 7th / 2017 is definitely better : It has bigger screen you want, including A9 processor and 2GB RAM. You coming from iPad Mini3 means you will not see any difference on screen.

The "supposed" screen 'downgrade' will only be obvious if you come from iPad Air2 or Mini4, which has the screen laminated display and anti reflective features.
