It’s official, Apple has updated its iPad lineup with the new “iPad”. The 9.7-inch tablet will be called iPad only and will replace the two years old iPad Air 2, with a minimal upgrade. The new iPad is fitted with Apple 64-bit A9 chipset, which debuted on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
The new iPad also sees a significant price drop compared to the Air model, carrying a price tag of $329 for 32GB WiFi model and $459 for the WiFi and cellular model — cheap, yet quite expensive for most of us in Nepal. Alongside the newly refreshed iPad lineup, Apple also silently enlisted the much rumored red aluminum version of its iPhone 7($749 for the base model) and 7 Plus($869 for the base model), while the iPhone SE will be now available in two new storage variants, including 32GB and 128GB.
The new iPad’s pricing seems pretty obvious for most of us since the tablet market is dipping faster than ever. The new price point[of iPad] will definitely allow Apple to grab some cash from the falling market, even though it boasts a year old hardware.
