Apple Retires IPad 2, 16GB IPad 4 Replaces It

Today marks a shakeup in Apple’s lineup - first was the introduction of an 8GB iPhone 5c and now Apple has discontinued the iPad 2. The iPad 4 will be taking its place and price tag.

The iPad 2 was left as the budacquire option in the gigantic iPad lineup when the iPad Air was unveiled, but at $400 it was too much for such recent hardware. The iPad 4 features a Retina display, Lightning port and a modern chipset.

The iPad 4 (“iPad with Retina display”) is available in Black and White at $400 for a 16GB Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) only version. There are no other storage options, but there’s a Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) + LTE version at $530 for the major US carriers.

With this go Apple has almost completely phased out the recent 30-pin adapter, the iPhone 4S is the only holdout (and the cheaper iPhone 5c 8GB aims to replace it). This would create it easier for the company when a unified charger becomes the law of the land (it will only need one adapter instead of two).
