Apple today announced, as expected in the past few days, an update to its 9.7-inch iPad which is now simply called ?iPad?, without the suffixes ?Air? or ?Pro?. It, in fact, a successor to the iPad Air 2 after all, has no Pro features like support for the Apple Pencil or Smart Connector, although a little thicker and heavier (more in line with the first iPad Air).
The tablet incorporates the latest generation of Retina display with 9.7 ? (with 2048 × 1536 pixels and brighter, but apparently without the technology True Tone and without the Pros' anti-glare lamination), 64-bit A9 chip, ?all day long? battery, 8 megapixel rear camera and FaceTime HD front camera, Touch ID sensor, etc. That is, it is not an iPad with any technological news that we do not know.
The new 9.7 ? iPad will be available for purchase from this Friday, March 24, in the United States and in more than 20 countries / regions, including: Germany, Australia, Canada, China, Spain, France, Netherlands , Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom, Sweden and Switzerland. In April, he will reach Denmark, India, Mexico, Norway, Russia, Turkey and others. Brazil, Taiwan and more countries will receive it only from May.
Available in silver, gold and space gray colors, the new 9.7 ? iPad will be sold at a very attractive price in the United States: $ 329 by the 32GB Wi-Fi version and $ 459 32GB Wi-Fi + Cellular version. There will also be a 128GB version, costing $ 100 more each. Apple sells Polyurethane Smart Covers for the new iPad in the US for $ 39, in a variety of colors.
In Brazil, although we still have to wait about two months, prices have also been released: R $ 2,499 over 32GB Wi-Fi, R $ 3,199 via 32GB Wi-Fi + Cellular. The 128GB versions will cost R $ 500 more each.
iPad mini 4
The iPad mini 4 remains the same, but now gains more capacity.
It will be marketed immediately in silver, gold and space gray for $ 399 for the 128GB Wi-Fi model and $ 529 for the 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular model. In Brazil, they will cost R $ 2,999 and R $ 3,699 respectively.
With that, Apple killed the 32GB version of the iPad mini 4 and finally buried the iPad mini 2. It could have taken the opportunity to rename it only ?iPad mini?, but lost it
