Apple's 64GB Wi-Fi iPad mini 6 has hit $399.99 on Amazon, down from an original price of $499.00. We've seen this deal a few times in 2022, but it's rarely been available in stock for all colors of the iPad mini, as it is this week.

Really enjoy my iPad mini. Stopped using my iPad Pro when I got it. My only wish is that they would make an apple keyboard for it. I know most people say it would be too small, but I had a cheap keyboard case from woot for my iPad mini (2nd 3rd generation I think it was?) years ago that fit me perfectly. that is the only thing I miss from the pro, the ability to have a keyboard cover.

Makes me wonder why - will a new mini be one more thing? I have a gen 4 but I really want to see magsafe charging before I buy another one. Oh and a starting memory of 128K

The Mini's not for everyone, but I sure love mine. I rarely use my 11" iPad Pro anymore. The only thing I miss on the Mini is Face ID.

I use my mini 6 way more than I expected. I use my 12.9 iPad Pro less to be honest. Ideal for my media content though and when I’m on the indoor bike. Mini gives me the portability that the pro can’t provide.

Just was in a Florida Costco, the base 14” M1 MBP is currently $1599.99! The base 16” is $2099.99.

Is there any chance M2 upgrades are coming soon?

I bought the mini 6, but ended up returning and enjoying my mini 5. I missed the bezels and touch ID. I usually hold it in landscape mode for gaming/web browsing and it was awkward to hold without the bezels, and face id is slow and also awkward.

I have and use an 11” iPad Pro at home for photo/video editing as well as sketching. Works great. It even replaced my laptop. I travel a lot and altho the iPad Pro is much more portable than my laptop was, sometimes, I want to travel really light. That’s where my iPad mini 6 comes in. It is the perfect size digital sketchbook for me when on the go. Plus it can still handle photo & video editing as well with a bigger screen than my iPhone.

Love this deal! bought a Wi-Fi only mini 6 last week, starting a new job in a couple weeks that’s in office a few days a week, so exchanged for a cellular version for only 50 bux more.

This is an underrated point (I also have and love the Mini 5)

On something this small, the bezels are really nice to have for "grippability" and a place for your hands to go with no chance of accidental touch inputs.

All that said, I really hope Apple makes an Mini 7 Pro

Love my mini 5 too. Only thing I regret is that I didn't buy it with cellular.

Same - Just recently corrected that with a great preowned Cellular Mini 5.

I tend to use my cellular through a hotspot for sharing with folks on trips, but when I'm solo I like to pop the same SIM into the iPad itself -- wonderful flexibility to have.

I'm so tempted. Has anyone found a Bluetooth keyboard for the mini they really like?

That's what I am wondering.... why a sale all of a sudden. I didn't think that it was getting updated, but I am wondering if it might.

I am looking to get a mini for a specific reason. I am wondering if I should hop on one of these incase a new one is coming out with a price increase. Hummmm
