Apple’s iPad mini 6 models have seen their shipping times slip. If you’ve run into problems finding the model you want, you’ll want to keep an eye out for new stock, look at other places to order, and look for stock in stores.
Shipping times for select iPad mini 6 storage sizes, colors, and carriers have been pushed into November and they could get worse before they get better.
If you’re able to find the iPad mini 6 model you want in stock, and you want the new tablet in your hands as soon as possible, you’ll want to order right now if you can.
While some iPad mini 6 models might not ship until November, you might be able to find one for in-store pickup at Apple or another retailer. That said, there’s no telling how much inventory each store will have so it’s a gamble.

Install iOS 15 for Better Security
If security is important to you, think about installing Apple's iOS 15 update right away.
iOS 15 brings numerous security patches to your iPhone. If you're interested in the exact nature of these improvements, you can read about them over on Apple's security website.
If you skipped iOS 14.8 or any older versions of iOS, you'll get the security patches from those updates with your iOS 15 update as well.
In addition to those patches, iOS 15 comes with some security and privacy upgrades including improvements to Siri. Requests made to Siri are now processed on the device itself using Neural Engine. This makes it more secure.
If you're an Apple Card user, you'll now get a security code that changes regularly to use when you make online transactions.
Apple's also included a built-in authenticator that's similar to Google Authenticator. This will let you generate verification codes for enhanced sign-in security under your Passwords.
There's also a Mail feature that hides your IP address and the company's added a new App Privacy report that will tell you when an app has accessed sensitive information.
