Deals: iPad Mini 4 Sales Continue, Exclusive Discount on iPhone/iPad USB Wall Outlet, and More

Best Buy this week has launched a sale on Apple's iPad mini 4, mirroring the $100 discount that Target placed on the 7.9-inch device late last week. You can get the 128GB iPad mini 4 from Best Buy in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold for $299.99, down from $399.99. There are also a few markdowns for the tablet on its cellular versions, depending on which carrier you choose.


Most notably, Best Buy is offering shipments to your home, unlike Target's sale which required in-store pickup. Free two-day shipping is available for the device as well, and anyone who buys one of Apple's smaller tablets during the sale will gain a six-month subscription to Trend Micro Internet Security for three devices. Furthermore, students can save an additional $20 on their total order if purchasing an iPad mini 4 with two years of AppleCare+.

In other discounts, we've partnered with Top Greener to offer MacRumors readers an exclusive 15 percent discount on the company's Dual USB Wall Charger Outlet at Amazon, priced at $19.29 with promo code RUMORUSB, down from $22.69. The accessory is rated at 2.4 amps per USB port with a maximum output of 24W, which should provide quick charge times for iPhones and average charge times for iPads.


There are also three interchangeable face covers in white, black, and light almond that come with Top Greener's accessory, but the wall plate that surrounds the outlet is not included. There are many simple and cheap solutions on Amazon, however, like Leviton's standard wall plate for $2.58.

To purchase the Top Greener Dual USB Wall Charger Outlet on sale at Amazon, select the "15A Dual USB Outlet" style on the Amazon page, add the item to your cart (making sure it specifies "Sold by Top Greener Inc."), and then type in the promo code "RUMORUSB" at the final stage of checkout. You have until Thursday, October 26 at 11:59 p.m. PDT to take advantage of the discount.

Also running this week only is an Aukey sale at Amazon, which ends this Saturday, October 21. Each Aukey accessory with a discount is listed below:


If you're looking for sales on smart door locks, The Home Depot's Special Buy of the Day is worth checking out today as well. The retailer has taken a variety of smart locking systems and marked them down by 48 percent, including the Schlage Sense Smart Lock in numerous colors and finishes for $179.00, down from $344.00.

Don't buy an iPad mini 4, it’s already stuttering with iOS 11. Very disappointed

Thank you. Glad to know that before I am firmly decided about whether or not to downgrade to iOS 11.
Now this mini tablet is going to be in iOS 10 forever.

Timing would be right for a surprise refresh, right into the holiday buying season.

I'm buying if they roll out an up-to-date "5"


iPad Mini would benefit from an A9X or even an A10. It’s not going to get the same processor as the recently introduced iPad Pro. Though the AppleTV 4K has the A10X, strange.

An edge to edge display in the same physical package would provide a 8.5-9” display, add TruTone and ProMotion with Pencil support and call it a Mini Pro. Instant sale from me for 3 orders.

Really? Interface or applications? Only thing I've seen is the interface itself, but applications run perfectly. I keep thinking of buying another one.. but holding out Apple will release version 5.


Not having a problem with mine on iOS 11.

USB-C will be the industry standard. It’s symmetrical, conducts high power, and transmits data at 10gb/s via the USB 3.1G2 spec. Even Apple has recognized this, killing the Thunderbolt form factor and adopting Thunderbolt via a USB-C plug. FireWire is dead and SCSI, we’ll...

USB-C matters to me because iDevices (like my new iPhone 8) only support fast charging through a USB-C cable, which can carry up to 5A.


That's why I said I'm curious to see how USB-C takes off in the near term.

I agree... USB-C will be the industry standard... but there are billions of USB-A ports and cables out in the world that are the current industry standard. :)

And I don't see that changing for a while.

I own ZERO devices with USB-C ports on them... so I'm using cables with USB-A on one end and either Lightning or MicroUSB on the other. And I'm not alone.

Yes... if I had an iPhone 8 or X I'd start getting into USB-C fast chargers. But I don't yet.

It's a shame Apple doesn't include the "good" chargers with these new phones. You still get a USB-A cable and crappy 5W USB-A charger in the box with these new phones.

Usually Apple loves to cut old standards and starts pushing new standards. Makes you wonder why Apple isn't including USB-C chargers and USB-C to Lightning cables with every new iPhone. That would start the ball rollling...

It was outdated already when it came out. Sad to say but even a $150 (frequently discounted price) iPhone SE kills it. iOS 11 has not been kind to A7-A8 devices.

Running fine even on my mini 2 from 2014, besides the occasional piece of touch input lag. Guess if they really discontinue the line I'll just have to jump on one of these sales ;-;
