Apple revamps iPad lineup, including price drops

Apple iPad lineup, available from Connecting Point Medford OR

Today, Apple announced changes to its popular iPad lineup.

Some older models were phased out, a new model was introduced, and in some cases prices shifted significantly downward.

Here are today’s iPad family announcements, in a nutshell:

  • The iPad Air 2 product line is gone.
  • In its place, Apple is introducing a new 9.7-inch model, called simply “iPad.” Prices now start at $329.99 for a 32GB Wi-Fi only model (down from $399.99 for the iPad Air 2 counterpart it replaces). Other configurations include a 32GB Wi-Fi+Cellular model for $459.99, a 128GB Wi-Fi version for $429.99, and a 128GB Wi-Fi+Cellular model for $559.99. This new iPad is available in Silver, Gold, or Space Gray. We will begin accepting orders for iPad beginning this Friday (March 24th, 2017).
  • The iPad mini 2 line is also gone, and prices for the iPad mini 4 have dropped. iPad mini 4 is now available in just a 128GB configuration, with a Wi-Fi only version selling for $399.99, and the cellular version for $529.99. Color choices are Silver, Gold, and Space Gray.
  • The iPad Pro lines remain unchanged.
