Apple Offers Discount on Latest iPad Mini, Unveils Redesigned Features

The latest iPad mini from Apple is now available at a discount of $120. You can purchase the 6th-generation iPad mini (2021) with 256GB storage for just $529 on Amazon, marking its lowest price yet. Alternatively, the 64GB model, typically priced at $500, is currently discounted by $100.

In 2021, Apple revamped the iPad mini, introducing an “all-screen” Liquid Retina design. This redesign eliminated the Home button, aligning the mini-tablet with the modern design language of the larger iPad Air. The iPad mini boasts an 8.3-inch display that supports TrueTone and covers the P3 color gamut. It features a resolution of 2266 x 1488 (326 ppi).

Powered by the A15 Bionic chip, also found in the iPhone 13 series, this model opts for Touch ID over Face ID, integrating a Touch ID sensor into its power and sleep button. With a USB-C port, the iPad mini offers versatile charging and data transfer capabilities. It’s compatible with the second-generation Apple Pencil for note-taking or digital sketching. Apple estimates up to 10 hours of battery life, though actual usage may vary.

Rumors suggest that Apple will update its entire iPad lineup this year, with speculation pointing to a possible late 2024 launch for a new iPad mini. If these rumors hold, this model may only remain the latest for another six to eight months.
