The latest Apple iPad mini is back to its cheapest price ever. The deal is now live at Amazon, where you can pick up the 256GB iPad Mini for $599 (was $649). While 64GB of storage is likely to be more than enough for general use, those who feel they might need some extra space might prefer this model. This deal is a return to the cheapest price yet for a larger capacity iPad mini model.
This is a price cut we've seen a number of times since the release of the 2021 iPad mini, but it rarely sticks around for a very long. Going by these previous reductions, you've likely got about a day or two to pick one up before it goes out of stock or returns to full price. Best move quick, then, if you want to bag yourself a deal ahead of the Presidents' Day sales.
For a brief moment, the smaller 64GB Apple iPad mini was $459 - that's a $40 saving off the usual price. The Space Gray and Pink colors were discounted but it's currently sold out. We're keeping an eye on it to see if it returns.
The latest iPad mini 6 launched towards the end of 2021 and was the first refresh of Apple's smallest tablet in two years. The upgrades are considerable, with a new A15 Bionic chip that delivers a 40% CPU and 80% GPU performance upgrade for the 8.3-inch device. The front and rear cameras have been massively improved up to 12MP, too, while the new tablet supports Touch ID and sports a USB-C port for easy connectivity.
