Ya mini 4 on iOS 11 even it's usable it from the looks it's wil be the last upgrade of iOS if sill wanna use

As mine Mum colleagues got a used set of mini 1 or 2 they complains of dsmm lag hahahhah lucky I hand over mine mini 4 to my Mum so it's still quite smooth
Some more mini 4 is the only in the mini series that can do split view. Currently also playing infinite flight with all settings set to high, still playable but with slight lag.

Perhaps in future, I may not even need an iPad anymore as just used it for games, reading CNN and some videos.

Am in HK right now. The price is definitely cheaper by 80-100. Besides the warranty, anything else different from buying in Singapore? I have one iPad(16gb) which I have been using for 4 years and still going strong. If it's not for the fact that Apple is no longer supporting this model, I would not need to change.


Update : only WiFi version of iPad is covered under international warranty.

The mini is just so light and portable. I really wished that Apple would update it with a 'pro' version or specs, but only put it at 128GB now.

This one right ? https://www.apple.com/sg/ipad-9.7/

Is there a way to check if itís 5th/2017 if I am buying from outside shop?
its quite easy to spot this.

compared to all other ipads : firstly, the mute/rotation switch above the volume on the ipad side SHOULD NOT exist. secondly, the home button is touch ID enabled (no square icon).

compared to ipad air2 : ipad 5th/2017 is a bit thicker and heavier. the positive of this is it has higher battery capacity.

better to wait for the new processor to kick-in on this model... I think Mini 4 still using A9/A8?

the latest is A11 and minimum of new features like AR is A10

Unless if its like me just using my mini 2 for Manga or sometimes for travel download offline netflix videos then you definitely no need to wait
