2GB RAM is pretty much confirmed based on parts leaked a few days ago

A 1GB Elpida chip would have an "8" in the second character slot, while a 2GB chip would have an "A" in the same spot. Because of the quality of the image, it is difficult to say for certain what the character is, but it does appear to be an "A" rather than an "8" given that it is narrower at the top and wider at the bottom.


Just beside the A8X

The side switch beside the volume rockers is gone in the Air 2 but still remain on the mini 3.

Not sure to upgrade my first gen mini or not.

Also the Display is not upgraded. Now has lower ppi than most competitors

The Mini 3 and 2 has colour gamut issues(63% instead of 100%)

Get the iPad Air 2, Touch ID, faster performance and 2GB RAM is sure worth $140

I will skip this upgrade. Still believe my current ipad air can still serve me well. Not really a graphics intense user for games or doing anything that can use up alot of ram on my ipad.

Weight issue doesnt matter much since mine is always in casing

Camera functions wise my 6 plus or dslr can compensate for it. Megapixels is juz a number not an improvement to the quality of pics taken

Touch id is nice to have not a necessity imo. Same like color.

Also invested quite a sum of money for casings/sp/ tempered glass for ipad air so it will be a waste if i upgrade again

Will wait for nxt gen to upgrade

iPad mini 1st gen size is it ok for u?
What do you need to do for extra processing or high res screen?
Do u change for the sake of changing?
Last question for you, do you want something different? Get Air2!

i certainly like the size of iPad mini.
Also looking for a speed upgrade and have a higher res screen to enjoy high res photos thus selling my 1st gen away .

For air2, i like the fact that it is thin. but i am afraid that it is still too big for my liking.

Will get iPad Air 2 becoz currently using ipad2

And the timing is right

If have more current models, maybe can wait and wait for next round

Just like have iphone5 so didn't upgrade to 5s or 5c but wait for iphone6
