How You Can Pre-order Apple’s New iPad and iPad Mini

Also on display at Apple’s annual fall event were the company’s latest tablets, including the ninth-generation iPad and the all-new iPad Mini, the latter of which is a follow-up to the 2019 iPad Mini and borrows heavily from the design of last year’s iPad Air. The new models will be available for purchase on Friday, September 24th, with prices beginning at $329 and $499, respectively. Preorders have already begun to be accepted at a number of retailers.

If you want to get your hands on one of Apple’s latest tablets before they go on sale, you have a few options to consider.

Where Can I Get The Brand-New iPad Mini?

The new iPad Mini is a far cry from the original iPad Mini model in terms of specifications, and it represents one of the most significant updates to Apple’s smallest tablet since it first launched in 2012. The sixth-generation model has slimmer bezels, an A15 Bionic chip, and an 8.3-inch display, which is larger than the previous model. The upcoming tablet, like the iPad Air, will be devoid of the aging home button, will support USB-C, and will incorporate a Touch ID sensor within the power button, which will be located on the top of the device. Aside from that, it supports 5G and Wi-Fi 6, is compatible with the second-generation Apple Pencil, and is equipped with a 12MP ultrawide camera on the front, which allows it to support Apple’s Center Stage feature, which was introduced with the iPad Pro last year. Additionally, it comes pre-loaded with iPadOS 15, just like the ninth-generation iPad.

The most recent iPad Mini is available in two different storage configurations: 64GB and 256GB, as well as four different color options (purple, pink, starlight, and space gray). It will be available for preorder at Apple, as well as Amazon, Walmart, B&H, Best Buy, and Target, with shipments expected to arrive before the tablet’s official launch on Friday, September 24th. The 64GB configuration will cost $499, and the 256GB configuration will cost $649.

The iPad Mini with cellular connectivity is available in the same two storage capacities as the Wi-Fi model: 64GB and 256GB. Both devices are available in a variety of colors, including purple, pink, starlight, and space gray, and their prices begin at $649 and $799, respectively. The devices are also available for preorder at Apple, Amazon, Walmart, B&H Photo Video, Best Buy, and Target, among others.

Where to Buy the New Entry-Level iPad

Apple’s entry-level iPad continues to be the most popular tablet in the company’s lineup. In addition to retaining the same name as the tablet has had since its introduction in 2010, the ninth-generation model includes several upgrades, including a new processor called the A13 Bionic, which according to Apple is 20% faster than the outgoing model. Thanks to a 12MP camera on the front, the upcoming device will also be capable of supporting Apple’s aforementioned Center Stage feature; however, the rest of the updates are more minor in nature. The new iPad retains the same 10.2-inch display as its predecessor — this time with Apple’s True Tone technology — as well as a Lightning port, a home button, and a single rear camera, as well as a Lightning port and home button.

In addition to two different storage configurations, 64GB and 256GB, and two different color options, silver and space gray, the new iPad is also available in two different color options. The 64GB configuration starts at $329 and the 256GB configuration starts at $479; both models are currently available for preorder at Apple, Amazon, Walmart, B&H, Best Buy, and Target, with shipments expected to arrive before the tablet’s official launch on Friday, September 24th, according to the company. For a limited time, Walmart is offering a $30 discount on the base model, bringing the final sale price down to $299 for the 64GB Wi-Fi configuration.

The ninth-generation iPad, like previous models, is also available in a cellular configuration. It is available in both 64GB and 256GB storage capacities, and it is available in one of two color options (silver and space gray). Currently, both storage configurations are available for pre-order at Apple, Amazon, Walmart, B&H Photo Video, and Best Buy, with the 64GB model retailing for $459 and the 256GB model retailing for $609, respectively.
