If you’ve been waiting for a good deal on the latest iPad mini with cellular connectivity, you’re in luck. Amazon has slashed prices of all color options for the 64GB iPad mini with LTE to $550. That’s almost $100 off the usual price point, not to mention the cheapest we’ve seen for these models. It’s currently difficult to get your hands on the iPad mini if you go through Amazon – most WiFi-only models have sold out and very few WiFi + Cellular models are in stock. But if this configuration suits your needs, you can save a good amount of money by buying it now.

Apple gave the iPad mini a much-needed facelift last year, and it’s only made the little tablet better than before. It now looks like a smaller version of the iPad Air, with a nearly borderless 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display, flat edges, a TouchID power button, and a USB-C port for charging. It also features Apple’s latest camera array with Center Stage, making the tablet even better for FaceTime calls.
Overall, the iPad mini is a stylish little device that shouldn’t be underestimated simply because of its size. Powered by the A15 Bionic chip, the iPad mini handled everything we threw at it well. We also like that it works with the second-generation Apple Pencil, so you can treat the tablet almost like a digital notebook. Battery life is solid too: we were able to get around 12 hours before needing to charge the device.
iPad mini now also supports 5G, so you’ll get faster data speeds when you’re in an area with 5G coverage. Would we recommend using the iPad mini as your daily companion on the go? Not necessarily, but only because most people prefer bigger screens. The iPad Air might be better if you’re looking for a true laptop replacement, but it’s hard to beat the iPad mini if you want something as light as possible that you can use on the go.
