iPads, and Apple products in general, are known for being pricey gadgets, which is why each significant discount of the company's tablets is a big deal. And what do you know, that's exactly the kind of news Apple brought us today while announcing the new iPad Air 2. Yup, the prices of the previous-generation iPad models are being slashed, allowing anyone to own a current iPad model without going over their budget.
So let's talk about specific figures. Last year's iPad Air will go on sale for $399 (for the 16GB, Wi-Fi-only model), which makes it $100 cheaper than the most affordable Air 2. Also, the iPad mini 2 now starts at $299, or $100 less than the newer iPad mini 3. And for buyers on an even tighter budget, there's the first-gen iPad mini. It will be available for $249 from Apple's own store.
Alternatively, anyone in the market for an iPad may sit tight for a few more months and wait until refurbished models of the newest iPad models come out. Apple is traditionally launching refurbished iPads at discounts of around 15% or more, which is a great way of owning the newest model at a bargain price.
