Good morning all. Newbee here. Had my mini 2 for two days and I love it and have a few questions. I notice that it gets warm when it is on for a while. My daughter has an I pad with a magnetic thing that is just a cover to protect the screen. Are these better that the cases that you can get. With it getting warm, one would think the cover would be better to make it cooler. suggestions. Mine has the retina display. when ordering or looking for accessories for it, does it need to say "with retina display" or can I just order accessories that say mini 2.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello 2wg.
I have had both the mini and mini 2 and they appear to be identical in size. Both had an Otter Box and I like the Otter Box because it adds thickness to the iPad.
The iPad just seems to fragile and thin too me. Not all would agree.
The iPad might warm up a bit if used for long periods of time, but I tend to use it more frequently for short periods of time rather than a long period of time.
I have also had the iPad 2 wich was a good tab. But I just prefer the mini. As for accessories, I haven't ordered anything but would suggest when ordering you would include ( iPad mini 2 with Retina display )

I did look at the otter box ones. A little pricey but I want something that will protect it. So many of them to chose from. I want something that the wife's hand will fit and feel a little more texture than just the mini. We are both old folks so the hands don't work as good as they did 30 years ago.

Here is my iPAD mini 2 in its griffin case. just though you would like to see it for an example of a decent case.
