Apple Discontinues iPad Mini 2

With Apple’s new product unveilings today, users saw that the iPad Mini 2 is no longer being offered through Apple. Right now, the only iPad Mini that is available is the iPad Mini 4 (fourth-generation), which was updated today where users can now buy it for $399 but only the 128GB version. 

2016 and 2017 have been the years where anything with the A7 processor will be discontinued. Today, the iPad Mini 2 was the last on the list (iPhone 5S, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 2, and the iPad Mini 3) to be discontinued.

The iPad Mini 2 was an entry-level iPad, made for the people who possibly needed a tablet to do some quick internet browsing or to be able to watch Netflix in bed. However, Apple unveiled a new iPad today (technically the fifth-generation iPad) that is priced at only $329 that will come with 32GB of storage. The next model up is the 128GB version which has 128GB of storage. Yes, it is a little thicker than the old iPad Air 2, but for the money and the kind of specs the new iPad has, this is a great buy for an iPad.

It is unclear whether or not Apple is going to be releasing a new iPad Mini 5 this year, but for now, the iPad Mini lives on with the iPad Mini 4 still existing. As for the iPad Mini 2, all I can say is that it had a good run for its time.
