Today, Apple finally did what so many people have been asking: Drop the 16GB option from the iPhone lineup. With it, Apple has also made some changes to the iPad family, too.
Today’s event was meant to focus on new iPhones, along with the Apple Watch Series 2, but Apple didn’t completely leave out the iPad. Over on its official site, the company has made some changes to not only the storage options on offer, but also the prices attached to each. Specifically, the iPad lineup is now better in line with the new iPhones when it comes to storage options, which has seen some models equipped with discounts as well.
Moving forward, the iPad lineup offers storage options in 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro will now run $599 for the 32GB model, $699 for the 128GB variant, and $799 for the 256GB model. Meanwhile, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro costs $799 for the 32GB model, $899 for the 128GB option, and $999 for the 256GB variant.
The rest of the family includes the 32GB and 128GB iPad Air 2, priced at $399 and $499, respectively. The iPad mini 4 comes in the same storage variants, and costs the same as well. Finally, the iPad mini 2 is now priced at $269 for a 32GB model.
