Apple provides school discounts for a myriad of their devices, but doesn't have any direct navigation to get their newest iPad Mini 6. Simply changing "ipad-air" to "ipad-mini" in the address bar however, yielded that the newest mini is in fact covered by their educational discount.

If you have T-Mobile, you can enable the DIGITS feature and app. Or, go with Google Voice.
09-15-2021 at 09:45 AM
It can only be used to call other Apple devices via FaceTime audio.
09-15-2021 at 09:45 AM
No, the carriers all limit it to data-only.
09-15-2021 at 09:45 AM
Kinda. FaceTime audio and with other messaging apps.
09-15-2021 at 05:31 PM
Sort of. If you enable wifi calling on your iPhone AND the iPad has a data connection you can make or take a call that would normally take place on your phone. Same with texting.

Also like someone else mentioned, if you have a data connection you can use google voice exactly like a phone.

It's okay for reading some documents provided you have good eyesight. I actually prefer this over its heavier cousins; that being said, this one is no good for drawing and note taking. The surface is just too small. For those I prefer 12 inch pro.

Primary use for me is travel....it's so easy to pack or carry and much easier to use in smaller spaces (eg airline seats)....plus it's lighter when using at home.

Better media consumption experience over a phone. Super deluxe note and sketch pad.
09-16-2021 at 08:04 PM
Size and weight is better for kid's hands and as others suggested it's better for traveling. If you just do media consumption or want to use the pencil, the larger sizes are better.

Depends on what you use your ipad for. I also have the 2017 10.5 pro and would love some updated tech in the iPad mini but it wouldn’t work for my needs. I do draw somewhat and use my ipad as a secondary monitor through sidecar. The ipad mini wouldn’t be very good to use as a secondary monitor.
09-20-2021 at 10:11 PM
Again, it depends what you use it for. I want something easier to hold while I walk and read. I ordered an iPad mini and will be trading my 10.5” in to Apple for $220. For me, the cost was worth it.

Nope. There are some car dash apps that try to do what carplay does but they come with a subscription fee

I'm assuming it doesn't have an earpiece.

I didn't find it any difficult to find the Mini page for Education.

My quarrel is that this isn't included in the Back to School promotion. This is essentially an iPad Air with a smaller display. If Air is included in the promotion, so should this.
