Apple’s Spring 2016 event has finally comes to an end. Officially, it was a realtively fast-paced, and very short press conference in comparison to others that we’ve accompained to, but in that time CEO Tim Cook and his executives managed to introduce all of which were expected. Just took 64 minutes time to wrap up the whole event from start to finish and also covered the expected launch of iPhone SE, as well as the introduction of the much-anticipated new 9.7-inch iPad Pro, among other things. Mainly the 256GB storage option for 12.9-inch iPad Pro and price cut for iPad Air 2.
Announced the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro with 256GB storage option, Apple has also decided to take the opportunity to bolster the existing 12.9-inch iPad Pro lineup with the same 256GB model. That in the past offered a maximum internal storage capacity of 128GB.
In addition to the upgrade of storage built-in 12.9-inch iPad Pro to 256GB backup, Apple has clearly defined a prefessional and educational market for a larger-screen iPad with double the memory and has acted behind-the-scenes to iterate one with minimal fuss.
The newst 12.9-inch iPad family will still be available in Silver, Gold, and Space Gray colors, and will cost $1,099 for the 256GB Wi-Fi only model, and pay $1,229.00 for the 256GB iPad Pro model that serves up both Wi-Fi and Cellular data on-board.
Apple on the other hand apart from introducing 12.9-inch iPad Pro 256GB storage, has also taken the chance to slash the price of the second-generation iPad Air, while discontuing the first-generation iPad Air model.
Consumers who looking for a great deal on a powerful tablet from Apple are now able to grab the iPad Air 2 directly starting from $399, which is of course the price of iPhone SE smartphone. That gets them a 16GB entry-level Wi-Fi version of iPad Air 2 in either Silver, Gold, or Space Gray. While the 16GBB WiFi+Cellular model in the same color options will now starts at $529. 64GB WiFi iPad Air 2 now costs $499 while the 64GB with Wi-Fi + Cellular costs $629, respectively.
Don’t mind! Since iPad mini 4 doesn’t get any price cut, which is now holding the same tag as iPad Air 2 for 32GB/64GB configurations.
