When Apple announced the first iPad mini in 2012, the tablet’s purpose was clear: it squeezed just about everything that made the regular iPad such a pleasure to use into a smaller, cheaper package. It’s no wonder the mini built such a devoted following. After a few more years, though, Apple stopped updating its line of small tablets, leaving its fans with a tough decision to make: Do they move up into a bigger iPad instead? Or buy one of Apple’s “Plus” phones to try and get the best of both worlds? Or, should they just hang on until Apple decided to give the mini some attention?
