Spot this discontinued deal in Heartland Costco in Mississauga.

After I purchased one, there is currently 1 more left.

Good luck hunting!

Just note for anyone interested that the mini is heavily rumoured to have a MASSIVE redesign soon (within the next 2 months), so retailers will look to clear stock. A12 chip is 3 years old at this point as well.

That being said, if you are looking for a nice portable tablet, this is definitely the best on the market.

The only thing to point out with Mini 6 rumours is that everyone was guaranteeing it was going to be announced during the Spring Event and nothing ended up coming of it.

In all honesty I'd be kind of surprised if they unveiled a new iPad 9 and iPad Mini 6 in the same presentation, so it's probably going to be one or the other.

I remember hearing something about Apple holding it back because they wanted to wait for a lull in the release cycle. I’d say if they do release it with an updated iPad Pro Style redesign it will be October/November

I loved my iPad mini 2, but having just picked up an iPad Air 4, man I missed the bigger screen

2 Quick questions please :

My Mom is 75 and has just started using a smart phone (Iphone 7) and she loves. She does struggle with Windows (Other than browsing+gmail). I think the Icons on the iPhone are a lot easier for her to use than Windows Menus. (EG: Start/Program files/microsoft office/Word.exe)

1 - As a next step, would you guys recommend she get an iPad ? IPad Pro ? iPad Mini ?

2 - Other than loosing the Phone portion and gaining a larger screen, are there other reasons someone would go to iPad?


Thank you

My mom is 74 and has an iPad and loves it. She is not good with technology at all and does great with her iPad. I have an iPad also, so when she has questions, I can talk her through it easily. She is able to read books on it and takes out books online through the library as well as play games, check FB and email. One thing I did do was get rid of most of her icons and only leave the ones she uses on the front page to make it less confusing for her. I would recommend just the regular iPad. I think the larger size is better and likely no need to spend more $$ on the Pro.

All rumours point to them following last years model of events, I would bet $1000 that there is no iPad announcement today. The last time they announced a new iPad during September alongside iPhones it caused confusion at the store level with their back to school promos.

The Mini will be released in October or November this year.
