Last year’s release of the iPad mini 3 let down many users and fans of this smaller Apple tablet. Except for a screen with a wider color gamut and the addition of Touch ID, it offered no other improvements. The future of smaller iPads seemed rather dim, and it appeared that bigger iPhones met the needs of users who wanted a device with a bigger screen. Was it an end to the iPad mini product line? Not at all! The latest model — the iPad mini 4 — is even lighter, thinner and faster, and I know there is no smartphone that could replace it.
