New iPad Mini 6th Generation (Education Discount) $449 at Apple

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.

It can only be used to call other Apple devices via FaceTime audio.

No, the carriers all limit it to data-only.

Kinda. FaceTime audio and with other messaging apps.

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.

Dang, sporting an A15 processor. Better than an iPad Air.

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.

Ordered one (256GB $599, originally $649). Do they ever check whether I'm actually part of the edu eligible?
