    Hi. Is this available now at PowerMac Center (their website is not updated)? I'm planning to buy one for my parents.

    Mm…I hate the inaccuracy of touch ID on the iPad Mini 6. A little wet or a little perspiration on the finger and touch id fails more often than not. Whoever wants touch ID back for the iPhone needs a lobotomy. Face ID is still far superior. :mad:

    Hi, Wanted your opinion on this since you have both. Hope you dont mind.
    If you were to only have one. Which would you choose? Mini or Pro 11? Which gets most use?

    Mm…mini. I ve grown tired of the 11 Pro because of its weight and unwieldy size. But if you are focused on productivity, the 11 Pro is still a better tool.

    Patience is a virtue when you buy via online Apple store. :whistle:

    if you will only have one tablet, the 11-inch is the way to go, it is large enough to do some sort of productivity on it, and still small enough to still be portable.
    Personally, the 12.9 is the productivity king (i currently have this but used to have the ipad pro 11.) then the ipad mini 6 (which i plan to buy once its locally available) is the best for portability.
    So in this sense the 11-inch ipad pro is not the best of either portability or productivity but if you can only have one then its a good enough compromise for both productivity and portability

    In my experience if i dont make it to the first day of ordering online i just wait it out with local stores. Just my experience before with the m1 macbook air and the 2020 ipad pro… the ipad mini 6 will surely come out either late october or early november (i actually reserved mine already at my fave apple shop to get first dibs when it arrives hehe) The ipad pro 2021 arrived in our stores just a month after US release and even the iphone 13 is also arriving just a month after release (the fastest as far as official PH release is concerned) so the ipad mini 6 is not far behind for sure :)

    I want it personalized this time. My other toys will arrive in between so it will somehow relieve or divert the anxious excitement of the waiting game hehe

    Check with Smart/Globe if they offer these iPad minis on a 24 month data plan
    • Wi-Fi
    • Wi-Fi + Cellular
    24 monthly amortization is easier on the cashflow than a one time payment.

    To serve as a redundancy I'd apply with a telco opposite to the one used by your smartphone.

    They also offer older model iPad mini, iPad, iPad Air & iPad Pro.

    Would be nice if they also offered MBA, MBP, Mac mini and iMacs as well. ;)

    DHL just delivered my order placed through the Apple store last Oct. 6. It was supposed to be delivered a week from now, so it was definitely a pleasant surprise. (wifi only, 64 gb)
