    Long overdue in my book, and should it get released it would be an instant purchase for me.

    Despite having the 12.9 inch Pro and lord knows so many other devices, the Mini 5 because of its size, is still my most used device. Throw in a bezel reduction to allow a larger screen (without makings its footprint larger), Apple Pencil 2 Support, and USB-C, and maybe even M1, and I have no doubt the Mini 6 would again become the best selling iPad. I'd jump instantly for it, if anything just so I would never have to use a lightning charger again.

    The Folding iPhone however, would steal some thunder, but for those quite still securely on the Android Phone camp, that would almost be a non-issue. (unless they can get their fold pencil 2 compatible)

    I'd totally love to have one, but TBH I'm just holding out for the iPad pro 11 with microLED. The mini could replace my Kindle, but my Kindle has already been replaced by my Boox Note Air. :cool:

    Mini Rant Time - fair warning:

    Tom's Guide is at it again with click bait headlines:

    iPad mini Pro price and screen size just leaked

    The problem being, the article cites a Twitter poster with a weak reputation that is citing a blog post from an even sketchier source (or was that "sauce" - follow the Twitter's link). And then they tease a long ago released mock-up picture:

    Now don't get me wrong, an iPad Air/Pro Mini, with Pencil 2 support, would be an automatic purchase for this tech junkie, but I'm mostly ashamed of myself for falling for clickbait crap like this!

    Unless they are right...:vboops::vbwink::thumbsup:

    Then it is far more than "dangerously irresistible" to quote @dellaster...

    If they've made it too large to fit in a pocket, I'll be very disappointed.

    The Mini 5 has been my full time device since it came out, replacing the Vivotab Note 8. Pocketability is key.

    I tried a mini 5, after owning a mini for 4 for years... couldn't justify it as my Huawei Mate 20 x has a 7.2" display. Too much overlap to have both. Additionally, I've just sold an iPad Air 4th gen as I just don't need the apple ecosystem. No matter how much I try, I just won't use it. Shame as I honestly miss the mini 4.
