It’s getting more and more likely that we will get a new iPad Mini Edition … sometime this year, and while no one can say for sure which of the two recently leaked designs will prove legit, we’re obviously leaning towards it the more conservative option.
The answer must be correlated with the price of the IPad mini 5 released in 2019, currently discounted as much as $ 69.01. This corresponds to a reduction of 13 percent compared to the RRP of 549 US dollars for the 7.9-inch device with A12 Bionic drive in a Wi-Fi-only version with 256 GB of internal storage space, which does not sound earth-shaking at first.
But due to the relatively weak competition from The iPad mini (2019), Apple’s Android competitor in the small tablet arena, wasn’t discounted very often during its two-year existence. In addition, this is by far the deepest price cut on the hugely popular and pretty well-reviewed slate took quite a long time in any configuration.
Oddly enough, the most expensive models, equipped with cellular connections and a local 64GB or 256GB digital hoarding room of your choice, are either not discounted at all or are being sold at negligible discounts at the time of this writing.
On the positive side, the cheapest fifth-generation iPad mini variant is also significantly cheaper than usual after a cool price reduction of USD 54.01 in silver and space gray tones.
If you’re not sure if this somewhat dated tablet with a beautiful Retina display in tow is the iPad for you, it’s probably a good idea to check it out our complete buying guide before making your final decision. Keep in mind that Apple is almost guaranteed to be revealed too a new iPad Pro Duo … that you probably won’t be able to afford by the end of this month.
