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.

 

With all eyes set on the December 14 arrival of the iPhone 5, Apple Malaysia has quietly updated the official online store, allowing consumers to purchase the new iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad in time for the year-end holiday.


Like the iPhone 5, the iPad mini (reviewed here) is available in either Black & Slate or Silver & White, starting at RM999 for 16GB model, RM1,299 for the 32GB model and RM1,599 for the 64GB model. The Wi-Fi + Cellular variant, on the other hand, starts at RM1,399 for the 16GB model, RM1,699 for the 32GB model and RM1,999 for the 64GB model. At present, both variants are expected to ship in two weeks upon order confirmation.


Arriving less than a year after the ‘new iPad’, the fourth-generation iPad – known simply as iPad with Retina display – introduces the powerful new A6X chip and the all-new Lightning connector. The Wi-Fi model is available at RM1,499 for the 16GB model, RM1,799 for the 32GB model and RM2,099 for the 64GB model. The Wi-Fi + Cellular variant is offered at RM1,899, RM2,199 and RM2,499 respectively.
