Sounds like a no-brainer, all those factors (the age, they're giving you a little something for your Air, small/light for travel and couch/bed use. Full-size iPads are just bigger than I want to mess with. If I ever own another iPad, a mini it will be. Not even a question/doubt on that.

I would totally do it if I were you. Mrs T loves her new mini. I'm wanting to move down from my positively massive 12.9" but I'd only go back to the 10.5/11" size.

Holding a new iPad mini 6 in my hand. Purple. Very nice.

Oh I definitely will have one. Went to BB this past weekend to see if they had it on the floor and the dude responsible for the Apple section didn't even know a new mini was out! Will have to make a trip into the mall Apple Store as soon as I can.

So it goes.

I'm probably going to order myself one Monday. Would go into the store and snag it but I'm going to do a trade-in so I'll do it online.

I've run into that as well. I can totally understand some regular employee not being aware of Apple products/releases (I certainly don't know - or care - when Samsung, Microsoft, etc. release new stuff). But when you've got the person working that specific area, even wearing a shirt with the Apple logo and "Apple Specialist" or whatever on it, and they're unaware of such major releases or act clueless about the products in general, it doesn't instill much confidence in anything coming out of their mouths being accurate/truthful.

"Hell, I probably know more about all this stuff than he does...".

I hate that feeling when I'm in a store.

Just ordered a black 256GB but they are 4-5 weeks out. Estimated delivery date/time frame is the exact day I leave for London. I’m hoping it comes a tad early.

It’s not just demand, it’s the electronics shortage hitting Apple to. Rumours were that all the new Apple products would see lower production levels though the winter at the very least.

As long as I can get it on or before Nov 1st I’ll be happy.

I take it no chance to get one locally? I haven't checked, but when I got my iPhone mini if I bumped up the storage I could pick it up that night but they didn't have the base model in stock.

I checked availability at our local Apple stores (5 in Greater Vancouver), no new Mini's of any capacity available for pickup, WIFI or 5G. Mid November (8-16) delivery dates regardless of selected options (as have all iPhone 13 Pro models BTW).

For giggles I checked stock at my local store and there is none there either. With or without cellular. I didn't check the base model, just the 256GB storage. No color or wireless version in 256GB locally.

I believe the information came from suppliers, not some random guessing. We already are used to new iPhones/iPads released in the fall being in short supply until after Christmas, and with the delay in shipments to both suppliers, and out of Asia it wouldn't be unreasonable to see shipping times slip into late November and December very soon.

I didn't even look locally just because I was trading in an old iPad and wasn't sure if you could still do a trade in if you purchased one locally. I was on the fence until I saw I was getting some scratch for an old one that I never use anymore.

Got my Mini while I was out of town. Finally got it opened and setup yesterday. Beautiful machine. The size is perfect for what I want. It's a perfect gap filler between my iPhone and my MBP. Super happy with this purchase.

If I ever own an iPad, it’s the only one I’d consider. Not too little, not too big.
