Apple IPad Air 2 And Mini 3 Go On Pre-orderBy cheatmaster 12:46 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments
Just as planned, the Apple store is back up today and it has some recent goods to offer. The company's latest tablets are now available on pre-order and you can book your unit for next week shipment correct away.
The iPad Air 2 will start at $499 for the 16GB just as before. Just as on the iPhone, the 32GB version is now gone and the 64GB version will be at $599. A 128GB iPad Air 2 is also there for $699. You can acquire LTE on each storage version but it will cost you $130 extra.
As usual European prices aren't quite as attractive (although the incompatibility is smaller than with the iPhone). In the UK the Apple iPad Air 2 goes for £399/£479/£559 for its three versions, while LTE support adds a further £100. In Germany you need to pay €489/€589/€689 plus €120 for Cellular connectivity. Across the border in France prices go slightly higher - €10 extra for each version.
The Apple iPad mini 3 is available in the same three storage options as its bigger brother - 16GB, 64GB and 128GB. It's priced at $399/$499/$599 ($130 extra for LTE) in the US, £319/£399/£479 (plus £80 LTE charge) in the UK and €389/€489/€589 (€120 for the LTE) in Germany.
Going by the specs alone the Apple iPad Air 2 looks like an upgrade worth considering with its recent 6.1mm profile, laminated display and beastly A8X chipset, but the mini 3 is merely a TouchID enabled version of the mini 2 that also comes in gold.
