Apple just dropped the price of the iPad- starting at $329
Apple made two major announcements today, including one that’s sure to attract plenty of new customers to the iPad line. In addition to the usual software updates, Apple announced that its base-level iPad would now be available at $329 for 16GB or $429 for 32GB (or Wi-Fi only). These are significant price drops from the previous entry-level price of $399 and $499 respectively- which were set last September at the announcement of Apple’s new iPad Air 2 and Mini 3 models.
Apple Just Made Its iPad Lineup Affordable
Apple’s base iPad is now $20 cheaper than its previous low price of $429. The low-end model features 32GB and Wi-Fi connectivity, while the high end is 128GB and LTE. In comparison, the company’s rival Samsung has had a low-cost model priced at around $230 for a few years now, with an older version going for as little as $150. Google also has its more economical 16 GB versions priced between $200-$350. As Apple continues to lose its market share in both iPads and smartphones, it seems to be finally listening to customers that have been frustrated by escalating prices on their favorite products.
The 10.5-inch iPad Pro starts at $649
Apple’s newest generation is fast and long-lasting with a new technology that can detect if you are running low on battery and suggest when to use it. It comes in two colors, space gray or silver, for most shades like deep blue, yellow, coral, or gold. You can get your favorite smart sleeve to personalize your device so it’s perfect for you. The 10.5-inch iPad Pro starts at $649 (seven sentences).
But if you’re looking for a more affordable option, there’s good news: The new 9.7-inch iPad starts at $329
As of March 27, the base iPad starts at $329. Though this is a bit more expensive than its $299 price when it first debuted in 2010, the additional cost is worth it when you consider the quality of its cameras and design features. Plus, it has a 2048 x 1536 retina display with pixel resolution that matches the quality of high-end desktop monitors and is the same size as last year’s full-size iPad Pro.
If you don’t need all those bells and whistles and are looking for a budget option, however, Apple still offers an affordable version: The new 9.7-inch iPad starts at $329.
It comes with 32GB of storage, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
If you are a high school student or have a history of using iPads in the classroom, this is an amazing offer that won’t be around for long. And with Apple’s free apps and support, there’s never been a better time to get started on your education journey.

To achieve this increase, Apple has cut the base price of their iPads by an astonishing 20%. This is a move many people did not see coming, but it has been very well received.
The reaction to this change was overwhelmingly positive and some people on Twitter couldn’t contain their excitement. I never thought I’d say this but THANK YOU, APPLE!!! One excited person tweeted. Others said they were in awe that Apple was listening to customer feedback about how much the original high prices were driving people away from buying iPads and thus slowing sales down.
‘With these new prices, we expect our market share to increase,’ Cook said during an earnings call Tuesday afternoon.
Tuesday afternoon Apple announced a new lineup of its iPads which includes a more affordable base model. The company says that they are introducing a new 10.5-inch tablet with 32GB of storage, costing only $329. Other models include a 12.9-inch iPad Pro for $649 and an 11-inch version for $399, both with 256GB of storage.
The prices are down significantly from before when Apple’s basic iPad 2 cost about $599. Previously that was the cheapest available model but it was discontinued this year in favor of the newest generation 9.7 inch option which costs about 2 grand for 128 GBs.
But what about 3rd party retailers like Best Buy or Staples?
The four new models also feature Apple’s A10 Fusion chip, which comes in two speeds — one optimized for energy efficiency and another that’s designed to handle graphics tasks more efficiently.
The new line includes a 10.5-inch model that can double as a tablet and a smaller 9.7-inch size that seems more comparable to the original, though it’s also adding support for Apple Pencil (four sentences).
Inexpensive, immersive, and efficient – these are all words you might use to describe Apple’s new lineup of iPods.
