You can now pre-order the Apple iPad Air 2 and Apple iPad Mini 3 online from the Apple Store
If you are looking to pre-order the new Apple iPad Air 2 or the Apple iPad mini 3, you can now do so directly from the online Apple Store. The ridiculously thin Apple iPad Air 2 is available in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB versions. You have three color options, silver, gold and space gray. The Wi-Fi only version of the new 9.7 inch slate will cost you $499, $599 and $699, respectively. The units with 4G LTE connectivity are priced at $629 (16GB), $729 (64GB) and $829 (128GB). At 6.1mm, this is currently the thinnest tablet on the planet.

Perhaps a 7.9 inch screen is more to your liking. The Apple iPad mini 3 can be pre-ordered in the same three colors as the iPad Air 2. The Wi-Fi only version of the slate can be pre-ordered with 16GB ($399), 64GB ($499) and 128GB ($599). If you want 4G LTE connectivity, the prices are $529, $629 and $729, respectively.

Both new iPad models will start shipping next week. If you want to pre-order either tablet, you might not want to dilly dally just in case Apple sells out of the new slates.

iPad Air 2? Nope. Mini 3? Yes.

Agreed. Air 2 is actually $100 cheaper than iPad Air. Mini 3 is a complete rip off. Apple's goal was to sell more Air's than Mini's. Based on the specs it was evident.

Yep, last year it was the opposite. That's why the mini had a small refresh and the Air a sizable one.

Regardless, they will both do very well in sales since, their average end-user suffers from a very low iQ. Incidentally, love your avatar, is that an original daLi??

What was that about iPad owners to have very low IQ? Da fuq is wrong with you insulting people u know nothing about?

Well, you can always buy the Nexus 9. It looks identical to the iPad, just running Andriod and made of plastic.

Please tell me you don't have a Mini 2.

Even if he doesn't, would the extra $100 be worth a fingerprint scanner?

Posts: 10457; Member since: May 14, 2012

Hell no. What Apple should have done is at least include the A8 chip, Touch ID, throw in an extra gig of RAM and upgrade the camera sensor to that of the Air 2.

"dropped"??? That's an understatement, the MTA makes better upgrades.

I have a mini 2, it's called the HTC ONE MAX.

Why must you troll with your iQ statements and such? Most of us here, that are Apple fans, agree that they should have produced something better than what they released. You should go play in traffic somewhere. And take your One Max with you.

I don't even bother responding to him King. It's not worth my time.

How many times can you recycle the same product and call it new? How do people still buy this stuff? If I knew I would be an millionaire. lol

Misleading advertising...

29. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

half of times not even a consumer can't tell the difference between iPad 3-Air.

^^^^Its always the most angsty 17 year olds who run to the comment section to slam what they cant afford. You will always be driving the honda civic and resent the neighbor with the bmw

The ipad mini 2 had the latest specs but it was $100 cheaper than the air, people loved it but Apple wasn't too happy about it, they want to make more money so they are pushing the customers towards the bigger ipad. Even the nexuses have lost the "great value for money" tag. When the oneplus one was announced, people thought that 2014 will be a year of "value for money" devices...unfortunately, they were wrong.

It was instead the beginning of the downfall of "value for money" devices.

10. Commentator

Yeah, that'll happen when you make your device nearly impossible to order and promote it with absurd, confusing, and (at one point) misogynistic campaigns. Oh, and being a shill for a multi-billion dollar Chinese tech conglomerate instead of a "trendy startup" didn't help their image either.

Yep. The "flagship killer" wasn't successful due to "business killers".
