So, it appears they have reversed the input priority on the MINI. On the Spark 40 it is AUX>USB>Bluetooth but on the MINI they made it AUX>Bluetooth>USB. This reversal makes no sense to me as if you have it hooked up to USB to your computer, it is only logical you want to use the USB connection at this time as you MANUALLY have to plug it in to the MINI.
However, with the Bluetooth/USB switched on the MINI the Higher Priority Bluetooth connects AUTOMATICALLY before it even checks USB If you try to connect your MINI to the computer. If you have ANY of your Bluetooth connected devices around it will automatically pick them up and never let you get to USB unless you disable all your other Bluetooth devices (phone/tablet/etc.).
So far I have been unable to find a way to switch the priority back to the same as Spark 40. I'm sure there is a reason they switched it, but I can't think of any situation it would be beneficial to have automatic connections a higher priority as it block the other. I've been frustratingly trying to figure it out also. I certainly hope they address this in a future update, either switch it back or make it an option of how it best serves the user.
