Amazon currently has Apple’s fifth-generation iPad mini listed for sale for just $384.95. The online behemoth usually offers this hardware at around the $399.95 mark, which means that this deal is going to immediately save you $15 on the purchase of the 64GB model.
Believe it or not, $15 may not seem like an insane amount of money but it’s actually the largest discount that we have seen on this brand new Apple iPad hardware in its relatively short lifespan. For anyone who was thinking about picking up Apple’s brand new iPad mini or who wanted to bring one into the life of a loved one, this is actually an extremely good deal that immediately means you don’t have to pay Apple’s full asking price.
This deal if for Apple’s WiFi-only version of the hardware, which means that it doesn’t come with cellular data access with an inserted SIM card but it still gives you powerful connectivity via 802.11ac WiFi. Of course, you will need to provide a wireless network in order to make that possible. Browsing, accessing apps and doing all other miscellaneous tasks that iPads are good for should land you up to 10-hours on a full charge thanks to the size of the internal battery. That may be reduced slightly with seriously processor intensive activities but 10-hours is a good indicator of battery performance for this hardware.
This particular device comes with Apple’s gorgeous 7.9-inch Retina display with True Tone and wide color gamut. It offers Apple’s A12 Bionic Chip to ensure it brings the very best in tablet performance and processing. It even comes with a built-in Touch ID sensor for biometric authentication and purchasing. Like most devices these days, it offers two cameras on the front and rear for standard photography and video calling and comes pre-installed with iOS allowing access to a plethora of games and apps via the App Store.
If you don’t need a full-sized iPad or one of Apple’s iPad Pro models, then grab this right now complete with the $15 discount.
