At $499, the latest iPad Mini isn’t cheap. Luckily, Adorama is currently taking $25 off of the 64GB, Wi-Fi-equipped model in all four colorways, bringing the final sale price down to $474. The latest model is equipped with Apple’s new A15 Bionic processor and a 12MP rear camera, not to mention Apple’s Center Stage feature, which allows the front-facing camera to digitally pan and zoom in order to keep you in the frame.

In our review, we also praised the design of the sixth-gen iPad Mini, the larger screen, and the fact that the new tablet offers USB-C support, though, we disliked that it lacks a headphone jack. And while today’s discount isn’t a huge one, it is one of the first we’ve seen on the Apple slate since it launched just over a week ago.

iPad Mini (2021, Wi-Fi)

Apple’s revamped iPad Mini ditches the home button and opts for a larger, edge-to-edge display that’s reminiscent of last year’s iPad Air. It also comes outfitted with a faster processor, support for USB-C, and a top-mounted power button that moonlights as a Touch ID sensor.

If you’re in need of a stylus, you can pair your discounted iPad Mini with the second-generation Apple Pencil, which is once again on sale at Woot until October 9th, or while supplies last. Typically $129, you can pick the stylus up for $110, which is just $10 more than its best price to date. Amazon Prime members will get free shipping. Unlike its predecessor, the newest Apple Pencil can wirelessly charge while magnetically attached to the side of the latest iPad Pro, iPad Mini, or iPad Air. Note that it will not, however, work with the newest entry-level iPad.

Apple’s second-gen Pencil ditches the awkward Lightning port charging, adopting a magnetic mechanism that attaches to the side of the iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad Mini. It can also recharge while magnetically attached.

You can now purchase the best drone under $1,000 for even less at Newegg. DJI’s official Newegg storefront is now offering a refurbished DJI Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo for $769, and throwing in a $60 Newegg gift card. Normally $988 when sold new, that equates to $219 in savings. The Mavic Air 2 offers 34 minutes of flight time, as well as a built-in 48MP camera that is far better than that found on its predecessor. The midrange drone also offers features like ActiveTrack 3.0, which automatically follows a subject, as well as improved connectivity. In addition to the drone, the discounted bundle includes an AC power cable, a pair of extra control sticks, a shoulder bag, six low-noise propellers, a battery-to-power bank adapter, a gimbal protector, and more.
