    Good morning,

    I have an ipad mini purchased at Apple Store in May 2013. The battery is charged 100% daily and practically drains down all day to near empty. May I please have a recommendation about my options. Should I buy a new ipad mini or what about a battery replacement (and if so, what would Apple cost be)? I had the mini replaced once while it was under warranty because of a key that wouldn't work. Suggestions appreciated, please. Thank you.

    How many hours of use are you getting from the battery in your iPad mini before it runs down?

    There was nothing wrong with your post.

    If you're getting all day battery life, there would seem to be nothing wrong with the battery. whether or not to upgrade would depend on if you need the newer features offered by the newer iPad models.
