Apple gave the iPad mini some much-needed love last year when it came out with the 6th generation of the tiny tablet. But naturally, all the improvements came with a $100 price increase over the previous version. Now, you can save a little on the 2021 iPad mini as Amazon has some models that are up to $50 off. THE 256GB Wi-Fi Version in space gray has that discount, reducing it to $599, while the 64GB Wi-Fi model by Starlight is $25 off and has dropped to $474.

Because of its “mini” name, Apple’s smallest tablet can easily be confused with its less powerful model. But that hasn’t been the case for some time now, and the 2021 iPad mini really puts that notion to bed. It runs on an A15 Bionic chip and has a 2266 x 1488 resolution, 326ppi Liquid Retina display. It had been a long time since Apple redesigned the mini, but the company has corrected that, making the latest model look like a tiny iPad Air with its flat edges, USB-C charging port, power button with TouchID, and (sadly) lack of of a headset. It looks brand new and performs solidly to boot – it handled everything we threw in our tests, including everyday tasks like sending emails, watching videos, light gaming, FaceTime calling and taking notes with the second-gen Apple Pencil.

Speaking of FaceTime, the iPad mini comes with a Center Stage capable camera, which means Apple’s technology will keep you in the frame automatically, panning and zooming to follow you. The battery life is also formidable – Apple estimates 10 hours on a single charge, but we found it was closer to 12 hours depending on how (and how much) you’re using the card. If you know that an iPad the size of an e-reader will make a difference in your life, Amazon’s latest sale is worth considering.
