I’ll use my ipad mini 4 as long as I can.  When I can no longer update to the 
latest ios, I’ll get the Apple 9.7 inch model.

There have been rumors that Apple will discontinue the mini, due to lagging 
sales.

The best bang for your buck on an iPad right now is the new Apple 9.7 inch 
model. The mini four is, in my opinion, too old. If they had come out with a 
new one with the same processor as the new iPad 9.7, then I would think that 
would be a good choice. But they didn’t. You have to figure on upgradability, 
and how much longer is that mini four going to be upgradable. Wouldn’t touch it 
with a 10 foot pole. You can get the 9.7 inch model with 32 GB for $300 right 
now at Best Buy. If you have a little more money, an extra hundred gets you 128 
GB. I’m sure the pro models have better audio, and of course better displays. 
But as a blind person, who cares? I mean about the display. And I can’t imagine 
that whatever improvement there is with the audio is worth all that extra 
money. But that is in the ear of the beholder. Like you, I have an iPad Mini 
too. And I keep hoping that they’re going to upgrade that model with a better 
processor. But it hasn’t happened, and signs point to it not happening. So, if 
you want to stick with an iPad, that 9.7 form factor is the smallest thing 
you’re going to get. Your other option I suppose would be to hang onto your 
current phone, whatever model it is, get a new phone and turn your old phone 
into a replacement for your iPad mini two.

  I am thinking of purchasing either an IPad or mini IPad.

   

  I currently have a mini IPad II, and before I buy a later model, I am looking 
for some advice and opinions on which mini IPads are best and would it be 
better to go ahead and purchase an IPad.

   

  If an IPad is recommended, which ones work best with VO?

   

  Thanks.
