iPad mini 4 now available from T-Mobile’s online shop ahead of in-store launch
UPDATE: T-Mobile tells me that the pricing on its website is incorrect. The actual pricing is $0 down, 23 payments of $22.09, and 1 payment of $21.85. Also, as JLV90 points out, the iPad mini 4 doesn’t include band 12 LTE support. Its LTE band support includes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 38, 39, 40, 41.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus aren’t the only new pieces of Apple kit that are arriving at T-Mobile this month, because today ol’ Magenta began offering the iPad mini 4 in its online shop.
The iPad mini 4 is now available from T-Mo for $0 down and 24 payments of $22.08 per month for the 16GB model, or $529.99 full retail. If you’d like to step up to 64GB of storage, the monthly payments remain the same. but you’ll put $99.99 down or pay $629.99 full retail. And if you want the capacious 128GB model, the down payment grows to $199.99 and the full price goes up to $729.99.
T-Mobile also plans to begin selling the iPad mini 4 in stores, but those sales won’t begin until September 25. It’s also worth noting that while T-Mobile hasn’t officially announced when it’ll begin selling the Apple Watch in its stores, a report from MacRumors claims that Apple’s wearable will arrive in stores on September 25 as well.
The iPad mini 4 is the newest version of Apple’s small tablet, and while it looks similar to the iPad mini 3, it’s got some notable changes. Those include an upgrade to an A8 processor, improved 8-megapixel rear camera, 2GB of RAM (double the RAM in the iPad mini 3), and a thinner body that measures 6.1mm thick.
