Target is currently discounting iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 2 in select configurations by as much as 23%. Free shipping is available in all instances or you can opt for in-store pick up. As shown below, Target offers an extra 5% discount for REDcard holders (not a bad idea to sign-up ahead of the holidays, it’s free!). If you’re looking to save big on the larger capacities, these are some of the strongest discounts that we’ve seen. You’ll recall that Apple recently adjusted the pricing structure of nearly its entire lineup, making today’s deal even sweeter.
Here’s a look at the pricing in today’s sale:
- iPad mini 4:
- iPad Air 2:
The iPad mini 4 features a 7.9-inch 2048-by-1536 Retina display, A8 chip, M8 motion coprocessor, 8MP iSight camera, dual microphones and Touch ID. Meanwhile, Apple’s iPad Air 2 has a 9.7-inch Retina display with 2048×1536 resolution, 10 hours of battery life, 802.11ac wireless and Touch ID.
Apple is hosting an event on Thursday, but we’re only expecting to see new Macs with an iPad refresh coming in the first half of 2017. You might find stronger discounts throughout the holidays but that’s not a guarantee.
The displays on previous generations of iPad mini were constructed with three separate components. With iPad mini 4, we combined those three layers into one. This eliminates gaps between layers, along with the internal reflectance caused by those gaps. The redesigned display also delivers greater color saturation than before — 44 percent more. The fully laminated design in combination with deeper color saturation produce greater contrast and lifelike colors for sharper text and even more vivid images.
