iPad Mini 2 + Cellular + 16GB was 728SGD

iPad Mini 5 + Cellular + 64GB now 799SGD

70SGD for the increased storage + Touch ID~?

Yep, + pencil-support, better screen, faster processor and a much thinner and lighter mini than mini 2.

Still have to factor in exchange rate differences. Mini 2 that time exchange rate usd/sgd was around 1.25, now is about 1.35 this factor itself is already difference by s$50+

lightning cable....YIKES!

When's apple gonna transition to USB-C.

The newest ipad pro and Macbook already uses USB-C. Almost all recent android stuff and it's a given all future windows laptop will use USB-C as default. Apple will need to get their head out of the sand and transition their iphone and non-pro ipad models to USB-C as well.

Just go and touch iPad mini 4...they are practically the same from the outside. Only internals are different.

From aesthetics first thing most obvious is the design. The 2018 Pro is modelled more like the iPhone X family and comes with Face ID, omitting the Touch ID. Other than that, internals improvements and a brand new Apple Pencil designed to only work with the latest Pro.
