Pick up Apple’s newest iPad mini today and enjoy a generous $135 off the usual price. The discount — the biggest we’ve seen so far on this model — applies to the 64GB iPad mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular connectivity, which is now just $394.

The newest iPad mini has always seemed a little too expensive given that the entry-level iPad with a larger screen starts at just $329 (and can regularly be purchased for even less). But it’s still the best compact tablet on the market.

If that’s exactly what you’re after, now’s your chance to bag an iPad mini at a price that seems a lot more reasonable.

Save $135 on Apple’s latest iPad mini

Amazon today slashed $135 off the 64GB model with Wi-Fi + Cellular connectivity. Its regular selling price is $529, but this discount reduces it to just $394 for a limited time. That makes it cheaper than the Wi-Fi only model.

Note the discount applies only to the gold color option — silver and space gray currently remain at $529. But these are brand-new models, backed by a one-year Apple warranty, that are ready to ship right away.

We don’t know when we’ll see another discount this big on iPad mini; sizable cuts on Apple’s smallest tablet don’t seem to come around that often. So, go take advantage of this one before it’s too late.

Don’t be fooled by iPad mini’s smaller size

Despite its smaller form factor, the latest iPad mini is a terrific tablet. It has a high-resolution, 7.9-inch Retina display with True Tone technology, and it’s powered by a speedy A12 Bionic chipset — the same chip inside iPhone XS.

The device also features Touch ID, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, stereo speakers, and Apple Pencil support.
