ipad mini 2 ipad air

Apple has disclosed asking prices for the just-unveiled iPad air and iPad mini 2, ahead of the tablets' arrival on shop shelves next month.

The entry-level iPad ace (think 16GB and Wi-Fi-only) is yours for £399 when bought SIM-free and sans contract. Opt for the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB editions, though, and you’re looking at heftier outlays of £479, £559 or £639 respectively.

The 34/4G capable variants of the slimmed-down slate are selling for £499 (16GB), £579 (32GB), £659 (64GB) and, let’s be honest, a rather eye-watering £739 for the top-end 128GB edition.

If you’re in the market for the iPad mini 2, aka the device officially titled the ‘iPad mini with Retina Display’, and don’t mind not having 3G/4G, expect to pay £319 for the 16GB model. Price points for versions with extra storage are £399 (32GB), £479 (64GB) and £559 (128GB).

Fancy any of these but want mobile internet 4G/3G support too? In that case add £100 to each of the prices outlined above.

The iPad air is set to go on sale in the UK in the first week of November, with the iPad mini 2 dropping at an as-yet unspecified date some time later during the same month.

Three and Vodafone have confirmed plans to offer Apple’s new tablets on contracts bundled with a monthly mobile internet allowance, but have yet to detail price points or start taking pre-orders.
