Will iPad Mini 3 cases, etc. fit on Mini 4?

by cdharris / September 11, 2015 5:14 PM PDT

I have just ordered the new iPad Mini 4 from Apple. I want to order a case and screen protector and have them here when the Mini 4 arrives. I note that the new Mini 4 is supposed to be the thinnest yet. Does this mean that cases for the MIni 3 will be loose or not fit? Also, are the other dimensions and button placements the same? Thanks for any help.

Screen protector for ipad mini4
by DAnielDeann / October 23, 2015 7:44 PM PDT

Actually I have a similar question..my question is if screen protector for ipad mini3 will also fit on mini4? In ebay and some online shops sell both mini3/mini4 tempered glass as if they have the same size... I thought the size should be different, I am looking at another site Jedi Shield is selling as a separate product, so am i correct that ipad mini 3 and mini4 should have different screen protector size?

Mini 3 screen protector does not ft Mini 4.

The Mini 3 versions do not fit the Mini 4. The screen protector for the Mini 3 is 1/4" short on the Mini 4. I ordered one from IntelliGLASS and it didn't fit. They are supposed to send me a new one when they get the Mini 4 versions ready.
