More changes to the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4
There are also a few changes to the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 lineup. For the iPad Air 2, you can purchase a 32 or 128GB version for $399 and $499, respectively. Any model with cellular capability is still $130 more.
Any iPad mini 4 buyers can now purchase a 32 or 128GB tablet for the same $399 and $499 price points. That’s $100 less expensive than previously. The 16GB version of the tablet has been discontinued.
For anyone searching for a bargain, the 32GB iPad mini 2 is $269. Previously, the 16GB version was sold at that price.
