In the wake of announcements for a new iPad mini and new iPad, Expercom has introduced the first cash discounts on these 2021 tablets. Expercom typically is the first Apple reseller to have solid discounts on its latest products, but shoppers should note estimated shipping times can stretch as far as six weeks.

Starting with the iPad mini, you can get the 64GB model at $484.00 ($15 off) and the 256GB model at $629.00 ($20 off). Both models are on sale in all colors: Starlight, Space Gray, Purple, and Pink.

The estimated shipping time for the iPad mini from Expercom is three to six weeks. You can also opt for cellular connectivity, and these models are seeing up to $25 off discounts on Expercom.


For the 10.2-inch iPad, you can get the 64GB model at $315.00 ($14 off) and the 256GB model at $450.00 ($29 off). Similar to iPad mini, all colors are on sale at this price, including Silver and Space Gray.

Shipping estimates also stretch from three to six weeks, which will arrive later than Apple's September 24 launch date for the tablets. Additionally, you can get up to $37 off cellular versions of the new iPad on Expercom.

We expect all third-party Apple resellers to soon begin listing the 2021 iPad mini and iPad tablets. Pre-orders for the new tablets are live now on Apple.com, and they officially launch on September 24.

Why are the bezels on the new iPad mini so FAT? It looks ridiculous. Shrink the size like on the iPhone.

I think the sad part is that they actually have the balls to call it an all-screen display.

Why do you consider the mini half done? And really why do people expect from iPhone or Apple Watch updates? Transparent devices that display holograms? A foldable phone?

If you’re able to get the education discount from Apple (which pretty much everyone can), the 64GB model is $449. Plus they’re giving us $225 for our old Mini 5s.

64 gigs is 2021 a joke. 512 a must. and apple watch shows that with just monor design updates they have no clou to do something pretty anymore. and with iphone - look at the market - there are lots of pretty phones out there. notch is gone for years out there. smaller facetime cam, speaker hidden with small slut - its all possible. and that iphone 5 concept in 2021... hollow is actually possible but $$$, folding is crap.

Because if they were smaller you wouldn’t be able to hold the device without accidentally tapping the screen. It works on the iPhone because you hold it with one hand where you cradle it, you don’t grip the edge like picking up a notebook.

Fat? It’s an iPad you need a small amount on the sides just like other iPads of this design. To the edge wouldn’t work well

512 is overkill for most people. I’d say the sweet spot is 128 for base model. But apple knows the 64 gig base upsell because 64 is so little and 128 is enough for the majority.
