    This will be my first time to buy through the PH Apple Store (Education). Delivery estimate is December 17-24. Do they really take that long to deliver?

    Could be because of high demand and the supply chain shortage.

    Please recommend a good portable keyboard and mouse for the iPad mini 6, preferably available here in PH. Thanks in advance!

    Is the flap to hold the pencil removable?

    Nope. But you can always fold it backwards. The magnets will hold it. (y)

    just couldn’t resist, kept my 12.9 ipad pro and got the ipad mini. I must say the jelly scrolling is indeed very noticeable… i thought it was one of those things that you dont see on a regular basis or when just using normally but heck its there everytime you scroll hehe… not really a dealbreaker for me as i knew about it even before i got one, was just surprised it was that noticeable when doing regular tasks. Aside from that though, the mini is awesome, great form factor

    I got to try a friend's iPad Mini 2021 just awhile ago and man, I'm a believer. Perfect form factor for everything else esp for social media, movies, recipes, and good o'l toilet time. I'll probably get one when 120hz is adapted to it.

    iPad Mini Pro M2 Max. Kidding. :ROFLMAO:

    So after a month of contemplating, I finally bought my first iPad (Mini). I went with the 256 GB storage option since this will mainly used for offline media consumption.

    My first impression? It's really good! I can now finally read all my mangas without squinting haha.

    No case yet!

    How much is it under the Education pricing? Do you need a student/faculty ID or something?
