The new Apple iPads aren’t even out yet, and we already have our first set of discounts.

Right now Walmart is taking $30 off the new 10.2-inch iPad and Amazon is taking just under $40 off the iPad Mini. These are both 64GB, wifi-only models, both set for release on Sept. 24 (yours may not arrive on that day).

The Apple 10.2-inch iPad (2021), available in space grey or silver, now comes with the A13 bionic chip, which allows for better graphics and the use of multiple apps at once, plus an ultra-wide front camera.

As we wrote about the new iPad Mini, it’s completely redesigned along the lines of the iPad Air and Pro models, with squared-off edges and a TouchID sensor moved to the power button on top of the device. Apple ditched the lightning connector for USB-C (finally) and upgraded the front camera to include the slick iPad Pro’s Center Stage follow-you technology for video conferencing. The new mini is perfect for mobile professionals who need to take notes, read or entertain themselves on a plane without the larger screen of its bigger siblings.

Expect these sales to go away quickly (Walmart, for instance, currently doesn’t have the Mini in stock).
