Clearance sales on discontinued Apple products?

Does anyone have any past experience or tips on clearance sales?

I'm expecting/hoping the iPad mini 2 will get bumped out of the line up in October. If that happens, what (if anything) can I expect in terms of a clearance sale? In terms of discounts, how quickly they usually run out when they do this kind of thing, etc.

Going on past practice, I would not expect the iPad mini 2 to disappear, but it will be heavily discounted if there is a mini 4 announced. When they announced the mini 3, the 2 immediately dropped $100 in price in most stores. It seemed like a no-brainer at the time, given that it had the same specs as the 3, and I bought it. The situation this time won't be comparable, as the 4 will get a processor upgrade. But if it is discounted another $75, as the original mini was when the 3 came out, it would still be a good buy. The A7 chip in it is plenty fast.

Thanks. It's the mini 4 that makes me think they might kill the mini 2 (whether it's today or a month from now). Doesn't seem to make sense to keep the 2, 3 and 4, especially since as far as I can tell Touch ID is the only difference between the 2 and 3....

Well there you go... they dropped the 3, not the 2. Curious to see if there are any deals when the store comes back online...
