I have an iPad mini. Why? Because I had two of the old full-size iPads and found that while I like having one, I don't necessarily want to carry it around with me all the time.

This is the same reason I don't have an iPhone 6 or 6+ sized device - they're too big for my mobile uses. I use the iPad mini for reading and computer management tasks, amongst others.

Getting rid of the mini would not push me towards getting a 6+. I would most likely move towards an Android device if the supply of used minis dried up.

This seems like a bad call (if it comes to fruition).

As for the iPad Pros - if I want something that big, I'll get a Macbook or Macbook Air.

I'm going to predict, no. I recall when Samsung had a multitude of tablets, sometimes differing by one or two tenths of an inch in size, but this would be a very un-Apple thing to do.

If I'm wrong, I'll say, "This never would have happened if Steve Jobs was still alive."

File this one away for claimberry pie.

The mini is great in specific use cases, such as an in-cockpit GPS for pilots using ForeFlight, Garmin Pilot or some of the free alternatives on smaller planes. In a 172, for example, the 9.7" iPad may be too large to yoke mount or use in a kneepad.

I have both Mac and iPad and I wouldn't trade one for another. They are both perfectly suit me on different occasion. iPad is always more personal than Mac, and so I don't think Apple will be getting rid of Mini. My point is, Kuo has been wrong many times before.
