Oh really? I just ordered this morning.
Voted cold. Got a mobile skin for free from o2 priority. Took a month + multiple emails and tweets to get my product.
Opened parcel, and was disappointed in quality. Pretty poor dpi.
Currently it's on the back of my phone under a case but I've been tempted to peal and bin it.

None around Manchester!
No stock within 132.3 mile radius of nn126bp.

That area basically covers all of the south coast from the east to Bridport. All of the east coast up to just north of Hull. Almost as far west as Aberystwyth Wales and as far north as the gap between Leeds and York.
None within 92 miles of Aberdeen

beware that you cannot fold into a stable stand but otherwise a decent product and great at £2

I have this, and provided you keep it on a flat, hard surface it folds into a pretty stable stand

I've been watching these for a few months now. They are never available at Argos. Out of stock or not available for delivery. I have expanded my search to over 50 miles from where I live. still not available in any store or for delivery near me. I really wanted one. and this seems like a good price that you won't find anywhere else.


If you want a 16gb cellular model, John Lewis may
price match and they have stock.
Same price in John Lewis.

For an old 8" tablet this is a ridiculously expensive price.
Please name all the new 8.0" tablets...
No.
Exactly.
Ermm - nope. If you want a bit of overpriced old tech, buy one no ones stopping you.

Overpriced compared to what? It's old tech that's a given, but it's no older than any of the other 8.0 flagship tablets on the market, unless you're buying straight out of Shenzhen.


How about compared to this...far superior specs, expandable storage and just a few months old etc..

Stupid price for a pad. I paid 1/2 this price for a Samsung 10.1" pad that has the same funcutuallity, if not more. For £100 u can get a decent android powered pad that could do the same. I love Apple stuff but I'm not going to keep this facade going.
There's an iPad mini 3 64gb in the Apple refurb store at £250. But I can't even justify that for what I'll use mainly as a hand held web browser.

Hi Caterham7, I keep checking to see what refurbished Ipads are available on the Apple site. Is there anyway of getting an automatic alert or is it simply a case of continuing to check? Thanks

Don't think there was an alert option, I just kept checking at different times. They seemed to go offline about midnight for a few hours, so maybe main stock is added then, I got mine at about 5:30am one morning!

Depending on the model and spec you're after, some will hang around for a day or more, others will appear and be snapped up very quickly.

£10 off? Same item with price to include quidco cashback - refurbished from Apple £192, new £235, refurbished 64gb £205. Or refurbished mini 3 64gb £241. (refurbished come in and out of stock regularly, got x2 mini 3 64gb for kids Christmas presents)

Perhaps mini 5 to come in March, further clearance on mini 2 to pre-Christmas prices and reduction on mini 4?

Thanks for that informative post.

These were 189 in quite a few places 3 or 4 weeks ago. I was going to get one as a present for someone but not paying the current prices. This does seem to be the cheapest though so not voting cold.

Voted hot because I can not see a cheaper price elsewhere currently.

(It appears that there are a lot of hotukdeals voters with time machines which are capable of going back in time to a cheaper price, so vote cold. However, for those of us without time machines, this is the best price available currently. It would be really helpful if the timemachine brigade could go into the future, and then come back to the present so that they can tell us when it will be cheaper in the future)



Have to say just because it's the current cheapest price doesn't automatically qualify it for hot deal. I used to think like that but after a being around here for a long time I've learned that I was wrong. Something like this might just be a good price for that individual who wants to buy it now. But part of deal hunting is grabbing things at the right time not just the current cheapest price. The cheapest price EVER is the obvious hot deal but there's other factors of course such in the value of the pound vs the dollar and the direction of a product line (as in the Wii U is holding price and going up due to availability). So hot deals are actually pretty complex!


That's your opinion and obviously you're entitled to it but my whole ethos of posting deals is what the price is now.

Not what they 'have been' or 'might be' in the future. I very much doubt that Apple will stop updates for this iPad for several years as considering that they've only just recently stopped supporting iPhone 4 and that came out in June 2010 and this iPad came out in October 2013, so quite a considerable while yet.

If someone is looking for an item that I post then hopefully this is the best deal currently. It could be that they need them now, or for a present, or they just want them at this precise moment.

But I appreciate your comment and input.



It is my opinion of course. I appreciate where you're coming from. I just feel that ethos is too simplistic as if it were just a simple cheapest price now calculation then there's search and comparison engines for that. If you just post based on cheapest price for right now that's a slippery slope- For example I could just start submitting hundreds of thousands of items where I found the cheapest price for them right now... but would that really make them hot deals? I think there's more to it than that.


I disagree it's not simplistic at all.

I have found that comparison engines can be very slow to react to sudden price changes, once the deal has been active for a few days the deals can adjust and the stock has gone or the deal is no longer available. With that in mind I have posted up a few deals so members of UKHD can get the most up to date price if they so choose.

This doesn't make it cold, just the best price at that particular moment in time. Any UKHD member can do a search on a certain product and see the price history for themselves and make their own judgement.

I don't think it's a slippery slope, just informed of current prices and possibly a good deal for them if they want that certain product.

personally i would never buy another 16gb ipad, i have one and can barely put anything on it.


maybe your doing something wrong? 2 kids with 2 ipad 16gb and never any issues with space-maybe its just you?


Apple stopped selling 16gb models in all of their new ios products. This is because after the os there was not enough space left. So, no, its not just him. So many people agreed in the comments as well.

this isn't the 580CA but the 580C

Yeah Z580C-1B005A, specs are correct though

The Z580CA is over £100 more

Wonder if John Lewis will price match with 2 year warranty?


Likely would have, problem is for some reason JL have stopped selling 64gb, & even 16gb minis by looks of it. As staples have 16gb and 64gb only, JL will only price match like for like.

...but it's a fair point. Should be a lot lower at this stage of its life (maybe not a 100 quid though)
I love apple I have a iPad mini iPad Air 2 and a iPhone 6 I love all about them but I have to agree why are they soooooo expensive

Is this the one that came out in 2013?
yes. three year old tech - I've had two iPhones over the years that were almost redundant by the time by 24 month contract renewal was up.

it must be you, we have a house full of 4 and 4s and they work fine, just upgraded some to 5s as the apps are not supported. Agree though to a point on Ipads, if you have a 2 it will be so slow it hurts and our 3 which is used all of the time but hasn't had an update or new app on it for a while and all of a sudden its speed is getting slower. Problem with the mini 2 will be it will stop getting updates either ios11 or 12 and with that the apps will start to not be supported
I managed to get one for 189 got email conformation at 10.12
Thanks bb8

Back in stock at £379 with accidental damage at £35 - 2 year warranty and accidental damage. Remember the 28 day price promise - hopefully they will go back down to £349 or below by Boxing Day. Giving it to a 7 year old so accidental damage sold it for me.
I personally would not be interested in the accidental damage rather as lawtonjc said got three year warranty then it came down and JL honoured at £345 under 30 day promise.Think I'll wait.



Edited By: Jaybeam on Nov 30, 2016 06:54
Is this worth an upgrade from the mini 2? Or not enough of an improvement to warrant the cost? I've seen the comparison page but of course an actual opinion is better !

really want to buy this tablet, my ipad 2 has been held with sellotape for the last 3 years. Would have liked this a bit cheaper price drop wise but probably my wishful thinking. Has anyone ever seen this any cheaper? Cash strapped for at this time of year so dont know whether to risk waiting a bit more for sales after Xmas...


I read online somewhere that they're going to be releasing a new iPad Air around March and given that this has been out for so long (2years) it's due a replacement. I'm getting one now as a Christmas present to replace my mums battered iPad 2

I ordered a silver one & a space grey this morning, I've just received an email saying that they are unable to deliver all my items, space grey is out of stock, as soon as they have stock they will deliver (if not in stock within 4 weeks they will refund), hoping it will arrive before Christmas!
Me too, not holding out much hope.
Same here, I cancelled my Tesco order to buy from John Lewis due to the extended warranty. My first order with JL... not a great experience!

I thought the chances of them getting more stock of a 3 year old tablet were fairly remote, so I cancelled and picked up the £159 Samsung Galaxy Tab deal from Currys instead. If you're not tied to the idea of iOS, and are happy with a 10" display, the specification (and reviews) seems good for the money - technology has moved on a fair bit in the last 3 years (as has Android).

Funny how on Friday an Saturday when it was at £189, no Argos locally or delivery has any stock of this.
Yet whenever the price went back up to £219.99 (or more) then local stores and delivery has stock.
If stock keeps coming in then I guess I'll sit on my confirmed John Lewis order and see if they deliver. this week.

picked up the mini today - sweet! installing some apps now - a lot of the apps had originally purchased for the iPad 1 but didnt have time to play or slowed down to a snails pace after the last update they issued for it...

I must say though our ipad 1 still has great battery life so many years on - but saying that the Mrs only uses it for skype / kids games / kindle books occasionaly.

So come on 2013 model ipad mini! - just need to get a kidproof case now for this baby and possibly some kind of screen protector

If anyone hears of a duff update that turns this little beauty into coming up small placemat please let us know! :D

Is this still worth getting? Any idea how much longer this is likely to be supported for?


Well based on the fact Apple is still selling it in their stores I would say it will be supported for at least two years from the point they stop selling it! Look how long the iPad2 was supported... The mini2 is not slow or sluggish on iOS 10 in my experience it's not quite as snappy as an iPhone7 but look at the price, can you get any other relatively modern IOS devices in 32GB for this price?

Edit: I would however add, when new versions of iOS are released do NOT update until there is enough feedback confirming performance has not been effected! When I updated my iPad 3rd Gen to iOS8 it just completely ruined it, I ended up chucking two of them in the cupboard after the update as they we're unusable. Such a loss as when I finely dug them out again years later they were both dead! They were both top memory tiers as well... Apple are lucky I still purchase there products after that. I'm pretty sure there might be something untoward going on regarding updates on older devices forcing users to upgrade their hardware... Not good.

Interesting how the US looks at this pad.. watching American Football, and a Verizon advert comes on selling the Ipad Mini 2 for $99!

And its celluar and 32GB
https://www.verizonwireless.com/tablets/ipad-mini-2/


The Verizon's offer Is $99 but only if you also pay $16.66 a month for sim. So total cost is $399.99
Presumably plus local sales tax.
Ordered Space Grey version at 12.01 today for collection in a few days and received an email confirmation. At 13.43 I received another follow up email saying there was a problem with their delivery and that they had got it wrong and that the order had been cancelled and a refund would be issued. I can't understand why at 21.17 it shows up again on Tesco Direct as being in stock and yet my order remains cancelled.
Just ordered one to collect at local store.
Seems to be going in and out of stock online, I just ordered one a few minutes ago to collect in store.

That's only if you're a non-member right? So you'd best be saying words along those lines...

This is a good explanation; though Apple led me to believe to avoid bad publicity, if you're sincere and clearly not trying to blag them for a faulty handset, they generally just replace/repair it anyway because the percentage of claims is so low.
Out of interest, what did you have repaired?
First vibro-motor broke after half a year, I had my iphone 4s replaced. After that (in almost 2 years) Wifi stopped working and they replaced the phone again telling me that they do it because it was bought from them directly (the email said my phone was "OUT OF WARRANTY", and Proposed Resolution:"Replace iPhone and cover under EU law")

Thanks for letting me know - I've seen those faults before, WiFi failure on 4s was relatively common. Well done on getting it fixed - this is what's making me think of just buying an iPhone. Literally after being thrilled with finally getting away from iOS to an S7 Edge, I've got the 'screen stripe' failure after just 2 months and am tempted to jump into the car, drive to town and get an iPhone 7 from Apple direct along with the cover it brings.

But if you buy from an Apple bricks and mortar store you get 6 years coverage under EU consumer law. I asked about it and they said, as long as you purchase from Apple direct and keep the receipt, they'll just swap it under that policy for you in the event of an issue. It will be easier than potential 'send off and wait for repair' with JL. That EU coverage isn't transferable though. This all came about when I was thinking about buying a 7 in the store, so despite the astronomical pricing it seems a lot less mental with the long coverage.
Prob covered elsewhere but if no longer in europe would the 6 years cover still be valid.
I would doubt it as the claim is specifically 'EU Consumer Law' so would expect beyond the EU you wouldn't be covered. To be honest, I would imagine you might hit difficulties when Brexit has taken place properly as well but it's hard to say as no-one really knows. I would think regardless though, in 2-3 years you'll have updated the device so warranty is less relevant as time goes on.
To the person who asked, best value for iPads would be the mini 4 or Air 2 at this moment. The Pro range is a bit of rip-off for the extras it brings over 'normal' iPads.
If the 6 years is courtesy of EU legislation why is it that purchases in Scotland only get 5 years cover?
No idea, but as I don't live in Scotland and don't ever intend to, it's not something I've taken time out to research. All I know is that in the event of a claim you need to state 'EU Consumer Law' as the reason.
EU directive is 2 years [each country is supposed to implement their law according to directive].
in UK (maybe England/Scotland slightly different) this directive is implemented as 6 years, however the consumer has to prove that it is a manufacturer's defect. If you're buying from other sellers they might make you prove it was a manufacturer's defect which would cost you extra money. However if you buy from Apple directly and if they know it's a common defect in the model, they would take it without you having to prove manufacturer's defect.
i had my iphone replaced this way, but it was only coming to 2 years at the time. Btw they didn't need a receipt, they could see when it was bought (from one of their shops) in their systems, and the phone was a present, so I didn't have receipt or a card it was bought with

If you're buying from other sellers they might make you prove it was a manufacturer's defect which would cost you extra money. However if you buy from Apple directly and if they know it's a common defect in the model, they would take it without you having to prove manufacturer's defect.
i had my iphone replaced this way, but it was only coming to 2 years at the time. Btw they didn't need a receipt, they could see when it was bought (from one of their shops) in their systems, and the phone was a present, so I didn't have receipt or a card it was bought with

Like an iPad, Only Smaller

The iPad mini became a huge hit thanks to its ability to give users the same features of a larger iOS driven device but in a more compact and affordable package. The iPad mini gives you access to all the same apps as the iPad, the same long-lasting 10 hour battery life as the iPad, and the same multitasking ability as the iPad.

Speed and display quality is the clearest instance where the iPad holds a clear advantage over the iPad mini, which makes sense since the former has more space for bigger processing and graphics power than the iPad mini. In terms of design, however, the iPad mini is much more comfortable in hand and manageable to operate from an ergonomic perspective.

iPad Mini: Apples Compact iPad

Apple released the first iPad on April 3, 2010. Measuring 242.8 x 189.7mm to accommodate its 9.7-inch screen and weighing between 0.68 to 0.73kg, the iPad was easy to use with both hands but many people felt it was a bit too long and bulky to operate one handed. Coupled with a surge in demand for 7-inch Android tablets, Apple announced the release of its first iPad mini at the same event that it launched the fourth generation iPad on October 23, 2012.

This comprehensive buyer's guide takes an in-depth look at the four different generations of the iPad mini, including how the design, features, and technical specifications improved over time. For anyone interested in finding out, we’ve included a step-by-step guide to using your iPad mini model number to determine what version you have. Also given is a comparison of the iPad mini with other 7-inch tablets on the market today, to see how iOS stacks up against Android and Windows. Towards the end of the article is a guide to some of the available iPad mini accessories and bundles you may consider when buying or upgrading to an iPad mini.

iPad Mini Design and Features

The first generation iPad mini is now discontinued by Apple, but new and refurbished models can still be found. It shares many similarities with future generations of iPad minis like dimensions and navigation. The iPad mini measures 199.90 × 134.62mm and weighs between 308 to 312g, depending on the omission or inclusion of cellular connectivity.

Design wise, you can get the iPad mini tablet computer in a white or black front bezel and silver or slate aluminium housing. The exterior features four buttons; these are the home button on the front for returning to the home screen from an app, a power button on the top to turn the iPad on or off as well as put it into or out of sleep mode, a volume up and volume down button on the right hand side, and a slide switch above the volume controls that lets you lock the screen to prevent it from rotating between portrait and landscape mode (or indeed, put the device into silent mode depending on how you configure this button in the settings).

Also included in the interface is a configurable, digital navigation button that lets you perform various functions like locking the screen, activating voice control and returning to the home screen. This function is useful because many users have complained about the breakdown of the physical home button over time.

The iPad mini comes with iOS 6.0 preinstalled but it does fully support and can be upgraded to later versions all the way past iOS 9; the latest version being iOS 9.2. The home screen looks identical to the iPhone and traditional iPad screen, with apps aligned in rows of four, and four frequently accessed apps staying locked in place along the bottom. Similarly, the internet connection, current time and battery meter are displayed along the top of the screen.

Technical Specifications of the iPad Mini

CPU, GPU, and Memory: The iPad mini packs an ARM Cortex-A9 dual core CPU clocking in an 1 GHz and a PowerVR SGX543MP2 dual core GPU. It’s also equipped with 512 MB DDR2 RAM built into the older Apple A5 package. This is half of the available 1 GB LPDDR2 memory featured in the iPad 4 released at the same time as the iPad mini. It’s also the chip used in the discontinued iPad 2, which means the device struggles to keep up with the latest high intensity 3D games.

Display and Camera: All iPad minis have a 7.9 inch LED-backlit Multi-Touch display. However, the first generation offers a respectable 1024 x 768 pixel resolution at 163 ppi. All iPad minis also have both a 1.2 MP still, 720p video front facing camera for talking with friends on the exclusive FaceTime app and a 1080p HD still and video rear camera with 5x digital zoom for recording high definition videos. In first to third generation iPad minis, the rear facing iSight camera shoots photos at 5MP and videos at 30fps. The iPad mini 4 includes an 8 MP camera, again at 30fps.

Storage and Connectivity: Both the Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi and Cellular models come in 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB storage capacities; although a portion of the available storage space is allocated to the operating system and preinstalled apps. In terms of connectivity, there is a 3.5-mm stereo headphone socket at the top of the device and a Lightning connector at the bottom for recharging the battery. Like other iOS devices, there’s no room for an SD or microSD card slot for expandable storage, which makes the initial model choice very important.

ipad mini 4 backBattery: The life of the built-in lithium-ion polymer battery is advertised at 10 hours of constant internet browsing time; roughly three days usage if you use it for 3.5 hours per day. Whether that translates into real world usage or not is debatable considering you may want to watch videos, listen to music, and play games rather than just surf the web all day. A brand new iPad mini will fully recharge its fresh battery in about three and a half to four hours.

iPad Mini 2

The second generation iPad mini shares identical dimensions as the previous version, with slightly more weight at 330 to 340g for the Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi and Cellular models, respectively. The colours and materials are the same as the iPad mini. Apple still supports the iPad mini 2 and displays full spec and features on the Apple website.

A key design upgrade from the first generation is the new 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution at 326 ppi Retina display, which brings further clarity to videos and apps. Colour choices are still between the white or black front bezel and silver aluminium housing, but the slate aluminium housing has changed to space grey. An increased 128 GB version is also added to the collection.

The iPad mini 2 ships with iOS 7.0 preinstalled and fully supports software upgrades to iOS 9.2. Beneath the hood, the iPad mini 2 has a built-in 1.3 GHz dual core Apple Cyclone processor and quad core PowerVR G6430 graphics processor. The memory has been doubled to 1,024 MB of LPDDR3 RAM built into the advanced Apple A7 SoC package, making apps launch faster than before.

iPad Mini 3

The iPad mini 3 is pretty much identical to the iPad mini 2, with just three changes worthy of note. The first is that Apple no longer offered a 32 GB version for this model. The second is the new gold aluminium housing option added to standard silver and space grey. It took Apple a little under 11 months to release the iPad mini 4 and discontinue the iPad mini 3. This was likely because the second and third generations were so alike in terms of spec and features.

The third upgrade saw the introduction of the new Touch ID Sensor that replaced the older style of home button. Apple's Touch ID uses smart biometric fingerprint recognition technology to let you unlock your iPad by simply touching the button with your unique fingerprint, saving you the trouble of tapping in your passcode.

iPad Mini 4

Unlike the iPad mini 3, the fourth generation iPad mini actually provides advancements in performance over its predecessor. For example, the 1.5 GHz dual core Apple Typhoon, quad core PowerVR GX6450, 2048 MB LPDDR3 RAM, and preinstalled iOS 9.0 operating system all contribute to making the iPad mini 4 arguably the best 7 inch tablet available today.

How to Determine Your iPad Mini Version

If you bought an iPad mini or received one as a gift, and you want to find out which generation you have, you can check by looking at the model number next to the label "Model" on the back cover. When you locate the model number, write it down and compare it with the list below to determine your iPad mini version:

A1432 – iPad mini with Wi-Fi connectivity only

A1454 – iPad mini with Wi-Fi and Cellular connectivity

A1455 – iPad mini with Wi-Fi and Cellular (MM) connectivity

A1489 – iPad mini 2 with Wi-Fi connectivity only

A1490 – iPad mini 2 with Wi-Fi and Cellular connectivity

A1491 – iPad mini 2 with Wi-Fi and Cellular (TD-LTE) connectivity

A1599 – iPad mini 3 with Wi-Fi connectivity only

A1600 – iPad mini 3 with Wi-Fi and Cellular connectivity

A1538 – iPad mini 4 with Wi-Fi connectivity only

A1550 – iPad mini 4 with Wi-Fi and Cellular connectivity

If you can’t locate the model number or if it has been removed or faded, you can also check your iPad mini generation using the following steps:

  1. On the home screen of your iPad mini, tap “Settings“.
  2. Tap “General“.
  3. Scroll down to where it says “Model“ and note the number.
  4. Use the number to perform an online search.
  5. The results of your search will not only tell you the exact version but also the colour and storage of your iPad mini.

iPad Mini Wireless Connectivity

Like other iOS and even Android tablets, you can get the iPad mini in either a Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi and Cellular model. The additional of cellular technology means you can use your iPad mini to browse the internet when out and about without relying on a wireless internet connection; perfect for the train or working outside.

Opting for the Wi-Fi and Cellular version will also mean adding further weight and cost to the device. While the extra weight is negligible (between 5 and 10g in most cases), the extra costs you’ll have to pay not only include the upfront cost of buying the device but also the ongoing monthly subscription costs of your chosen mobile internet provider.

If you do decide on the Wi-Fi and Cellular version, then you simply insert the SIM card into the SIM port at the side of your iPad mini and power it on. It should detect the SIM settings automatically. Your iPad mini will always attempt to connect to a saved Wi-Fi connection first if available, before switching to the 3G or 4G connection if no wireless network is found nearby.

iPad Mini vs. iPad vs. iPad Pro vs. iPad Air

As mentioned before, the iPad mini doesn’t diverge greatly from the iPad in terms of performance and features. Throwing the iPad Pro and iPad Air into the mix, we can see exactly how each tablet in the iOS range measures up to each other.

Due to advancements in all versions of the iPad (now the iPad Pro after the fourth generation iPad became discontinued), iPad Air (now in its second generation), and the iPad mini, each iOS tablet can boast powerful processing abilities for multimedia applications, long battery life and superior display capabilities - all driven by Apple’s latest software upgrades.

With its 2732 x 2048 pixel 12.9 inch display, the iPad Pro is the largest, heaviest, and most expensive of the three but does offer the best performance. Both the iPad and iPad Air have a 9.7 inch display but the iPad Air is 20% thinner, about 100 g lighter, and slightly more costly than the iPad. Being the smallest iOS tablet on the market, the iPad mini is the cheapest and most portable. Yet, it does not compromise on display quality or battery life. All this means that the only distinction you have to make between the four devices, if you were considering buying one, is how you feel about size, weight, and cost.

iPad Mini vs. Android vs. Windows Tablets

There are so many manufacturers of Android and Windows tablets that it would be exhausting to compare them all here. And because they come in all different designs and sizes, in addition to varying levels of performance to fit your personal needs, they give you more flexibility to choose only those features that are important to you.

The main rivals to Apple in the tablet computer race are Samsung, Lenovo, Acer, Sony and Microsoft. They each have a line-up that includes options for the entry level user all the way up to enthusiastic gamer and freelance graphic designer. Tablets at the lower end of the market don’t directly compete with the iPad mini because they don’t have anywhere near the performance or reliability as the Apple product but do allow you to enjoy the mobile computing experience at an affordable price point if you’re a beginner. The higher-quality tablets are more on par with the iPad mini but may still lack in areas such as speed, navigation, and number of apps. That being said, if you’re willing to compromise a little on these features, then you can save money with a non-iOS tablet.

Speaking of apps, Apple’s App Store, Google Play, and the Windows Store all offer thousands of cool apps, games, music, books and TV/movies. But only the App Store and Google Play can boast app numbers in the millions and app downloads in the billions. Of course, Android fans will attest that the flexibility to transfer Google Play apps to other Android devices when upgrading without having to buy from the same manufacturer is why Android is better than iOS, whereas Apple fanatics enjoy the way all of their iOS devices can sync media content and apps via iTunes.

Accessories for the iPad Mini

There is a plethora of iPad mini accessories to jazz up your device and keep it in excellent condition. It is important to double-check the model of your iPad mini using the guide above before buying any accessories since slight variations in model specs mean some accessories are only compatible with certain models.

One of the first things people buy is a screen protector, which prevents scratches and marks from damaging the screen. A case will further protect the screen as well as the exterior from damage. iPad mini cases come in an incredible range of designs and textures, from the official iPad mini Smart Cover that simply protects the front of the iPad, to those that cover the entire device, to those that include a Bluetooth keyboard attached to the inside. Most cases, however, have a handy stand that lets you use the iPad mini on a desk and watch movies without having to hold it in your hands

Speakers for the iPad mini come in two types. One type sits separate from your iPad mini and either connects to the headphone socket directly or connects wirelessly via Bluetooth. The other type is an iPad mini dock that lets you sit the device on the dock using the Lightning connector and play audio through the dock’s speakers while it charges the battery at the same time.

iPad Mini Bundles

A Lightning to USB cable and an USB power adapter come as standard when you buy an iPad mini. That means you need to purchase iPad mini accessories separately. However, you can get some of them in a package when you buy the Cellular version. The big networks offering mobile broadband contracts with the iPad mini will offer bundles that ship the device with a protective case or a Bluetooth keyboard case. Depending on the length of the contract, they may even throw in a few extras like a car charger and stylus.

Considerations When Buying an iPad Mini

Almost every big technology merchant like Amazon, Argos, and Curries sells the iPad mini online. You can also buy one direct from Apple as long as it’s an iPad mini 2 or 4. If you buy the iPad mini Wi-Fi and Cellular version from a network provider, such as O2 or Vodafone, for example, then the device will be locked to that provider. In other words, you won’t be able to use the SIM card of another provider in the device to use on the go.

It’s generally cheaper to buy an iPad mini on Black Friday and around Christmastime, although the Boxing Day sales often throw up good bargains. Another time you might consider buying an iPad mini is right after the latest version is released. For instance, the release of the fourth generation iPad mini resulted in a good price drop for the earlier versions.
