Now that the iPad mini 4 is out, the iPad mini 3, which is basically an iPad mini 2 with Touch ID, has been discontinued by Apple. That means retailers have begun dropping prices on iPad mini 3 models that remain in stock, so it may be possible to get a good deal on an iPad mini 3 if you need to save a few bucks.

Prices are finally dropping on the Retina MacBook, five months after it first launched. Discounts are up to $150, so it's a good time to pick up one of Apple's ultra slim notebooks.

As always, we've also hunted down some great accessory deals and outlined a list of apps and games that are currently on sale.

iPad Air 2

Staples has discounted its iPad Air 2 lineup by $100, dropping the price on all WiFi and WiFi + Cellular models as low as $399.

Target is offering up to $100 off its selection of iPad Air 2 models. The best deal is on the 16GB Gold WiFi only model, which is available for $399 instead of $499.

Amazon is also offering some discounts. The 16GB WiFi only iPad Air 2 in gold is available for $425, while the 64GB version is available for $533. The 16GB WiFi only iPad Air 2 in silver is available for $432.99, while the 64GB version is available for $537.98. The 128GB WiFi only iPad Air 2 in Space Gray is available for $627.83.

The 16GB Cellular iPad Air 2 in Gold is available for $544, and the 64GB Cellular version in Space Gray is available for $668.89.

I was not able to use the discount code for the earpod skins. There was no place to enter the code. Gave up and did not buy.

The code is entered during the checking out process. There's a box at the side that says "Add a discount" which you can click to enter the code.

Come on MacRumors, Staples has iPad Air 2 for $100 off MSRP for all models and Target has them on sale too, albeit not $100 off.

Really sorry, sometimes deals go under the radar because I only have a couple hours a week to put these posts together. I didn't see the Target/Staples deals -- definitely feel free to email me if you see an awesome deal somewhere. It's hard to keep track sometimes.

I'll edit the post to add the Target/Staples deals in.

It feels really wrong that the iPad Air 2 is still, by default, a $499 device. It used to be you could count on a $100 price drop a year after an iPhone or iPad was released. That was your trade-off for using year-old tech. But with no Air 3 this year, you have to buy an Air 2 "discounted" to the price it should just be by default.

why are they discounting the iPads? is this a sign a newer one is about to be released?


Does Apple official stores offer similar discounts?

The iPad Air 2 has been getting these significant discounts since it launched last year. It's not a sign of anything other than these models don't sell very well at MSRP.

Just score an iPad Air 2 WiFi 64 GB at Staples for $449.99! They currently have all iPad Air 2's $150 off.

I used Apple Pay with my Discover Card for another 10%...

so its cheaper to buy them from stores like Best Buy and Staples than official Apple Store, since I am guessing they are not discounting those. Apple.come has the 64bit Air 2 WiFi for $599 excluding tax

Tried picking up the Air 2 64 Wifi at staples but the sales staff could not find their way out of a paper bag. I ended up getting BestBuy to price match.
