Apple's newest iPad mini is at its cheapest since launch

Apple's newest iPad mini is one of the most handily portable tablets around, and still powerful enough for creative use. Its Apple Pencil 2 support makes it great for sketching and photo-editing on the go. And in the US right now it's available at the lowest price we've seen since launch. You can save $109 on 256GB iPad Mini – now just $539 instead of $649 (opens in new tab) at Amazon. 

This is more than double the biggest discount we've seen previously when Amazon had $50 off during its President's Day sale. At the time of writing was still available in Space gray or the new champagne-like Starlight colour – but you'll probably need to get in sharpish. The Purple colour option has already gone. 

Don't need much storage space? Then you can get an even cheaper deal because the 64GB configuration is also reduced, down $99 to just $399.99 (opens in new tab). That's 20 per cent off.

The iPad mini 6 was released in October as the first update to Apple's smallest tablet in two years, and it's perfect for using on the go, whether for work or simply browsing and watching entertainment. I'd go for the 256GB version myself, since that offers plenty of storage, making it a great device to work on when you're on the go since it's the perfect size to use on public transport. See our iPad mini 6th gen review for more on why we so highly rate this mini tablet.

Need a bigger device or more storage? Amazon also has $200 off the 2021 iPad Pro 11 with a massive 1TB of storage (opens in new tab), reducing the price from $1,499 to $1,299. It also has $100 off the larger iPad Pro 12.9 (opens in new tab) with 129GB of storage, reduced from £1099 to $999.99.

If you're in the UK, I'm afraid the best current saving isn't so impressive, but you can save £30 off the 256GB 2021 iPad mini (opens in new tab), taking the price down to £589, or £20 off the 64GB configuration, now £459 (opens in new tab), but you can save £41 on the iPad Pro 12.9 (opens in new tab).
