Outdated hardware, not a great deal.

This mini is only 2 years old and still runs plenty fast. I’m sure it will get iOS updates for several years to come. That said, I’m looking forward to selling it for an updated version hopefully coming this fall. The bezels make the device look really outdated, and Apple Pencil 2+ support would be awesome.

I'd definitely wait for a Mini update... this thing is so long in the tooth.

Yeah, a new iPad mini is definitely coming, hopefully one that actually looks new and different like a smaller version of the iPad Air 4.

It's two years old, and the A12 is no slouch.

Might it be worth waiting to see if there's a refresh with a modern design? Sure, but it's not like this is a year away from losing software support.
