Jeremy Horowitz, writing for 9 to 5 Mac:
Apple’s discontinuation of the iPad mini leaves the remaining iPads as a completely 64-bit family, all using either A7 or A8X processors rather than the iPad mini’s aging A5. It also means that all remaining iPads have Retina displays and unified Wi-Fi + Cellular models.
Honestly, I didn’t even know Apple was still selling the original iPad Mini. Was anyone actually buying it?
