Apple has designated its iPad mini 3 as “obsolete” devices, marking the end of a popular tablet.
It was previously reported that the iPad mini 3 will be sent to the “obsolete” category in December for both the cellular and Wi-Fi configurations, and now it has come to fruition. An Apple product that is listed under “obsolete” will no longer receive support for repairs, especially since the parts for the iPad mini are no longer in circulation.
The iPad mini 3 was officially launched in 2014 as the successor to the iPad mini 2. The 9.7-inch tablet had a 4:3 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1536×2048. Inside is an A7 chipset running iOS 8.1 out of the box. The device was introduced alongside the iPad Air 2. The differences between an iPad mini 2 and an iPad mini 3 model are mainly the Touch ID button and a gold-colored option.
