The best iPad mini 6 prices could save you a tidy sum on the latest version of Apple's most compact and portable tablet. The iPad mini 6 has been out since September 2021, so we're starting to see more discounts crop up, especially during sales events such as Black Friday or the New Year sales.

While the iPad mini 6 is small, it's also very powerful, outperforming the standard iPad. I think it makes it a great choice for creatives on the go – it's a good deal cheaper than the iPad Pros, but it has Apple Pencil 2 support, making it a convenient option for drawing and note-taking while travelling.

Read on for the best iPad mini 6 prices, but if you're seeking a bargain on Apple kit in general, note that we also have a page dedicated to the best iPad Pro deals and the best iPad Air prices around. And if you want more details on all the iPad generations, we've got you covered.

The most recent iPad mini boasts the powerful A15 Bionic chip and has Apple Pencil 2 compatibility, which means it's ideal for digital artists on the move. Add to that its pocket-sized portability, USB-C port connectivity, and you've got a super versatile Apple tablet. 

As for price, the official starting price is $499 / £569 for the WiFi version with 64GB storage, and $649 / £749 for the wifi 256GB configuration. If you want the cellular configuration, that will cost you $150 / £180 more. And yes, we've also noticed that it costs more in the UK than the US. In terms of discounts, we've seen regular savings of at least $20 / £20 off those prices, and occasionally a lot more. The lowest price we've seen yet was $399.99 at Amazon, in October 2022. If you see anything like that at the links above or below, we recommend grabbing it quick.

How good are the iPad mini 6 specs?

Released in September 2021, the 8.3in iPad mini 6 boasts a powerful A15 Bionic chip. That gives it a power boost over its predecessor. But best of all for creatives, it adds Apple Pencil 2 support and the screen is now closer to a 3:2 ratio than the previous model's 4:3, offering extra width to make the most of the smaller screen. 

Throw in USB-C port connectivity, and we think it's the ideal tablet for creative work on the move. See our full iPad mini 6 review for more details.

Is iPad mini 6 discontinued?

The iPad mini 6 is very much still on sale, though its predecessor, the iPad mini 5 was discontinued by Apple on the release of the latest version. You can still get the previous version at third party retailers, however, just not via Apple.

Is there going to be an iPad mini 7?

Although Apple seems to have discontinued the mini version of the iPhone, with no mini version being released with the iPhone 14, we're still expecting the iPad mini to get an update. Both of the previous two iPad minis were released in September, so if the cycle stays the same, we would expect a new iPad mini, the iPad mini 7 to drop in September 2023. When that time comes we'd expect to see the iPad mini 6 fall in price, so if you can hold out a few more months, you may make a saving.
