    Doesn’t meet expectations

    I know this model is going on a few years old, but when my daughter upgraded from the original iPad mini to the 4th gen, we barely noticed a difference. The only improvement or added feature was Touch ID and a marginally better display. But, when it comes to operation, it’s a little laggy to her it’s decent and she has no complaints because it’s roughly the same in comparison to the original, however when I pick it up it seems like complete garbage after using a 7 Plus the difference in processing and overall speed of the interface is day and night. There’s no reason for this to be laggy at all. The iPad mini to iPad mini 4, outside of Touch ID and a slightly better resolution, was merely a lateral trade, not a worthwhile upgrade. Assuming Apple makes another iPad mini in the future, save your money and wait until the next generation iPad.... pretty sad when upgrading from a 6S Plus to a 7 Plus is more noticeable an upgrade than going from an iPad mini to a mini 4.

    Great price for this item but I think I know why. Maybe there was a bad bunch they needed to dump because this is not the usual Apple quality. Had issues with the Gyroscope, with the screen rotation either sticking in landscape or at times upside down with no way to fix without a reboot. Similar little issues here and there, buggy apps, crashes, etc.. but now I am taking a dead iPad in for service. The screen just gave out. Well it did come back for a bit, long enough for me to make a backup. But now it is dead. The lower right side of the unit got really really hot before it died. I'm disappointed. Apple is slowly turning into Microsoft the bigger they get... that's not a good thing.

    My need for this device was simply for its physical size and the specifics of the IOS. Regrettably I do not need as much storage as it provides and I was advised that it only comes in this single configuration. I would have preferred to have paid less for smaller storage capacity.

    It's okay for having a bigger screen than the ipod touch but other than that...not really much of an upgrade, more of a downgrade because there are so many things this thing does not do that the ipod touch did.

    every time we try to download our programs the unit freezes up. We tried multiple times to no avail. Taking it back to Best Buy; either replace the unit or give me refund.
