I’m not sure if the person above me is speaking of the new iPad Air, but I remember it being on sale once, and I’m pretty sure twice already. So this whole Gets First Price Drop….

That’s why I’m so aggravated by the Mini’s lack of sales.

Then why does the budget iPad go on sale? I had gotten that once for $249. Back in 2018.

I think it’s more because they know that the kind of folks who will buy a Mini are the kind of folks who need a Mini for some reason. So screw over the captive audience.
