Is Apple abandoning the iPad Mini?

over 6 years ago from , Product Designer

During yesterday's keynote, Apple spent about 20 seconds on the "new" iPad Mini. The only update the mini will get this year is touch ID. No new camera, no A8X chip, none of the new sensors. It seems like the terrible screen stayed the same as well.

What do you think Apple is planning with the mini? Are they phasing it out in favor of the iPhone 6+?
