Jeremy Horwitz, writing for 9to5Mac:
The original iPad mini has quietly disappeared from Apple’s web site, and is no longer available to purchase new from the Apple Store.
Apple’s discontinuation of the iPad mini leaves the remaining iPads as a completely 64-bit family, all using either A7 and A8X processors rather than the iPad mini’s aging A5.
The oldest iPad you can buy has a Retina display.
Considering the massive change that multitasking is going to be for 10-inch iPad users, I wonder how quickly Apple will phase out the iPad Air in favor of the split view-enabled iPad Air 2.
