It makes sense. Apple will concentrate on larger devices now. They have the normal sized iPhone 6 and the larger sized iPhone 6 Plus. They have the normal sized iPad Air 2 and eventually the rumored larger sized iPad Pro. They have the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro. So where will the iPad mini fit in?
Earlier this year Apple finally decided that a 4-inch flagship smartphone is no longer appropriate given the current trends, and released two new smartphones measuring 4.7 and 5.5-inch respectively. Interestingly enough, the Cupertino-based tech giant might apply a similar strategy to its 2015 iPad line-up too. According to supply chain sources cited by the Taiwanese media, Apple might discontinue the iPad Mini series next year in order to concentrate its efforts on the iPad Pro.
