One of the top 5 tablet deals of 2021 commenced today, as Best Buy put the Apple’s smallest tablet, the present iPad mini 5 on sale for $299: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/apple-7-9-inch-ipad-mini
That’s a record low price that was not even seen on Black Friday last year, when the price then was still $335.
So is this an indication that the iPad mini 6 will indeed be launched in September, possibly on September 14? Well, it could be.
But that still doesn’t change the fact that the iPad mini 5 is a very powerful tablet and one that’s more powerful than the average notebook sold in the consumer market today. It will also be the last iPad min of the original 7.9-inch mini size, as the next iPad mini will grow to 8.3 inches, with smaller bezels between the edges and the screen, as well as the removal of the home button as per display expert Ross Young.
