When I returned my iPad Mini 6 I didn’t realise I’d not be picking up another model straight away. Since the introduction of the iPad in 2010 I’ve owned one, I’ve tried to use it as my main device and finally settled on the iPad Mini as my iPad of choice.
Over the last year I’ve replaced my 11” iPad Pro with an M1 MacBook Air and with the jelly scrolling issue I experienced on the iPad Mini 6 I had to return it and no longer have my iPad Mini 5.
In the time since returning it I’ve not had an iPad to use, which definitely had me thinking about whether or not I actually want a tablet in my rotation of devices.
I’m finding that with the bigger iPhone 11 and the portable MacBook Air I’m pretty much covered. I like iOS 15 on the iPhone, macOS on my Air but I’m not a fan of iPadOS 15 with it’s Home Screen changes. I enjoyed the iPad Mini form factor to read, be a music reader for practise and consume but my phone gets me most of the way there. Appreciate it’s probably not the best for my eyes but it’s not that much smaller than the Mini. I think what’s happened is since getting the 6.1” screen on my iPhone it replaced my iPad use.
Am I picking up another iPad? I have been tempted to get an Air or even the basic iPad but for now I’m holding off. There are definitely occasions where I want a bigger touch screened device but I’m so indecisive I don’t want to rush into it. The iPad Mini isn’t getting an update anytime soon now so I either deal with jelly scroll or get a different size.
Do you use an iPad everyday?
