Apple Does Away With 16 GB iPads, Doubles Tablet Storage and Drops iPad Pro Pricing
Apple didn’t announce a new tablet last night, but what they did was cut the pricing of the iPad Pro and also double the storage of their latest slates. This means that the base storage models with 16 GB are now being replaced by 32 GB units.
The iPad Pro gets a $50 price drop in the 128 GB version and $100 in the 256 GB unit. Below you can see the new pricing of the tablets, followed by a second table with the old pricing. iPad Air 2 now goes for $399 in the 32 GB version, whereas the 16 GB model cost the same till now and that version is gone. The iPad Mini 4 starts at 32 GB with $399 price, replacing the 16 GB model with the same price range.
The iPad Mini 2 only sells in a single config, 32 GB, priced at $269. We remind you that the rumors did talk about a few new iPads, but those were reserved for 2017 and may bring us a resolution bump to 4K and a jump to OLED screens. We’ll see! An iPad Pro 10.5 incher is also being considered.
