Apple has removed the original iPad mini from its website and online store. The original iPad mini debuted in October 2012 and up to this point continued to be sold as an entry-level model alongside the 2013 iPad mini 2 and 2014 iPad mini 3 versions. With the original iPad mini gone from the lineup, Apple’s iPad family is now comprised of exclusively 64-bit models using either A7 or A8X processors and Retina Displays. Refurbished iPad minis remain available from the Apple Store, and new iPad minis can still be found at third-party retailers, at least for the time being. [via 9to5Mac]
