Hi

This link shows the tech specs between the two https://www.apple.com/uk/ipad/compare/ and one will notice their is more under the hood on the new version.

gemz4the1 have you tried the Apple order line as a second choice of ordering this ?

0800 048 0408

That's the air 2 vs mini 3

Between the mini 3 and 2 there is zero difference except touch id.

So literally the hood IS the only difference.

As stated - No difference at all except Touch ID......


...and it won't slow down with the next iOS release, unless a new iPad Mini is released before then...

Re: iPad Mini 3 - unable to buy

Are they trying to kill off the mini and replace it with the 6 PLUS?

Two different devices imo.

I've owned the iPad mini retina and it wouldn't replace my iPhone 6 plus. 😄

Ditto,  maybe apple just got lazy or wanted more sales of the air 2.

Re: iPad Mini 3 - unable to buy

The only spec that would interest me in upgrading from the iPad air to the ipad air 2 would be ram. Touch ID is not a biggie as I don't usually take mine out anywhere !

Re: iPad Mini 3 - unable to buy

I need the fingerprint ID as my nephew thinks my iPad is his lol.

I don't mind him using it occasionally but he is always trying to buy games and runs the battery down with everything he does.  And don't even mention his dirty fingerprints all over the screen lol Crazy

Re: iPad Mini 3 - unable to buy

Thanks for the advice everyone Smiley Happy

 

I tried again on my computer yesterday and the page would not load.

I ended up trying to do it on my phone and when I clicked by it sent me to the Apple Store app and I bought it there.

 

I guess it is my computer that is playing up again....... Smiley Sad
