Which iPad should I buy?

Episode 1245 (1:44:06)

Shell from West Covina, CA
Apple iPad Air 2

Shell wants to know if she should buy a Wi-Fi only iPad, or the iPad with 4G access. Leo says that Apple will charge an additional $129 for the LTE capability, plus she'll have to pay for an additional monthly data plan. It's far cheaper to get a Wi-Fi only tablet and then use her phone as a hotspot for about $20 a month. Even Leo didn't buy a data plan with his latest iPad Pro. He just went with the Wi-Fi version.

Will there be a new iPhone soon? Leo says he's hearing that there may be a new iPhone announced in March, going back to the 4" size, which could be called an iPhone Mini. The big upgrade for iPhones will be in September, though.
