I am considering upgrading my iPad mini (1st generation), since I get so many lockups.
The options would be an iPad mini 2 (also known as the first generationn iPad mini Retina) or iPad mini 4.
Now the price difference is still pretty substantial here (currently €140), although perhaps the iPad mini 4 goes down in price if Apple announces a new version (probably around September, but that is a bit off).
Both will get an update to iOS 10, but the mini 2 will probably be a bit slow then.
What information would be interesting for me:
- for everyone with an iPad mini 2; how many crashes/lockups do you get?
- tot the Devs (if they see this and they know the answer): what do you think about Pathfinder on iOS 10, will it decrease performance a lot? (in other words, do you think the mini 2 will still perform ok, or will you expect that the iPad mini 2 will experience the same performance issues the iPad mini 1 is having now on iOS 9?)
