Rumors of a more affordable 9.7-inch iPad model are true after all! Apple just unveiled a new 9.7-inch tablet, simply named the iPad which replaces the iPad Air 2.
The new iPad comes with a brighter Retina Display and is powered by an A9 chipset. In comparison, the retired iPad Air 2 model has a dimmer display and runs on an A8X chipset. Unlike the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the new iPad is only available in three colors (Silver, Space Grey and Gold).
It will come in two storage options (32GB and 128GB) for Wi-Fi-only and cellular models. Availability remains to be announced. Here’s the pricing of the new iPad:
- 32GB iPad (Wi-Fi)- RM1,549
- 32GB iPad (Wi-Fi + Cellular) – RM2,199
- 128GB iPad (Wi-Fi) – RM1,999
- 128GB iPad (Wi-Fi + Cellular) – RM2,649
The iPad mini 4 is now only available in one storage option (128GB). The Wi-Fi model is priced at RM2,099 while the Wi-Gi + Cellular model is priced at RM2,599.
The iPad mini 2 is no longer available for purchase.
The iPad lineup now consists of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the iPad and the iPad mini 4. As for the rumored bezel-less iPads, 7.9-inch iPad Pro and 10.5-inch iPad Pro, we’ll just have to wait a little longer.
