Apple is surveying some existing iPad mini owners about the iPad mini’s screen size including a Goldilocks-like question about whether the mini’s screen size is too small, too big, or “just right.”
Apple sends out surveys to customers on a regular basis, and those surveys often offer a glimpse at how the Cupertino firm gauges its customers’ wants and needs. The latest survey, first reported by ITHome, looks to be an attempt to weigh the opinions of current iPad mini users ahead of a significant redesign of the tablet.
The first question in the survey is, “What do you think of the size of the iPad mini 4’s display? Is it too small, just right, or too big?” Available options include the display is “too small,” “a little bit too small,” “just the right size,” “a bit too large,” and “too large.”
The new 6th-generation iPad mini is expected to feature a screen size of 8.5 to 9-inches. As it appears the screen size for the new iPad mini is already set, the information gleaned by the survey could be used to market the new device.
Apple also inquires about what activities iPad mini users perform on their devices in portrait and landscape orientation. Apple asks customers to note whether they use landscape or portrait orientation to take notes, view photos and videos, and listen to music.
The final two questions on the survey ask customers what other devices they own such as laptops, other tablets, smartphones, smartwatches, as well as what accessories they use with their iPad mini.
The new iPad mini is expected to launch later this fall.
