Many Apple fans have to have the latest iGadgets as soon as they are released to the market. There is nothing wrong with that especially if you can afford to pay the full price for each new gadget that you buy. It is always possible to save some money by getting your hands on refurbished Apple products. Here is the better news: Apple is further discounting iPad mini and iPad 4, which could also be a hint that the new iPads are coming soon.
- iPad mini: 16/32/64 GB Wi-Fi: $279/$359/$439 (Refurbished)
- iPad mini: 16/32/64 GB Cellular: $389/$469/$549 (Refurbished)
- iPad 4: 16/32/64 GB Wi-Fi: $419/$499/$579 (Refurbished)
- iPad 4: 16/32/64 GB Cellular: $529/$609/$689 (Refurbished)
Some folks may not consider these discounts to be huge. But depending on the model you pick up, you could save as much as $90 on previous prices. The iPad 4 and iPad mini are both very capable devices with speedy processors. If you can’t wait a few months to get your hands on new iPads, the above deals are worth checking out.
Speaking of the iPad mini, it seems Apple had planned for the iPad mini to have a second microphone. We heard rumors about it before the announcement event. Sonny Dickson has now published a photo that shows an iPad mini shell with an extra hole in the top-middle section. It seems Apple had a change of plans and decided to save this for the future.
At this point, we don’t know the exact Apple decided not to include that second microphone in the final iPad mini design. The decision did not keep millions of people from buying these tiny tablets though.
