iPad Mini 4 With 128GB of Storage Now Starts at $399 as 32GB Model Discontinued

Apple today announced that the iPad mini 4 now offers more capacity for the same price. The 128GB model with Wi-Fi now starts at $399, which was previously the price for the 32GB model with Wi-Fi, which has been discontinued. A cellular model with 128GB of storage is also available for $529.


Apple has also introduced a new low-cost 9.7-inch iPad and discontinued the iPad mini 2 as part of its tablet lineup refresh. Japanese website Mac Otakara had claimed that Apple would release a 7.9-inch iPad Pro, but other analysts had disagreed, and it turns out the rumor was indeed incorrect, at least for now.

The newly priced iPad mini 4 is available now on Apple.com in Silver, Gold, and Space Gray with next-day shipping.

Person walks into a store...
Sees a big iPad for $329
Seems a smaller iPad for $399, with a slower processor, but with 4x the storage...

That seems confusing

Also disappointing as I'm a huge fan of the mini form factor. Hopefully this is just to make room for the "Pro" lineup with 7.9,10.5,12.9

Seriously starting to hate this company. I don't need an iPad because it's a **** product but seriously.... when was this last updated?

Thanks for extra storage after 2 years and same price? They really think they have no competition. At least put in new chips in these things. Is this their new trend weren't they selling a 2012 MacBook Pro for 5 years never updating it a few months ago

The Mini 4 is still a very capable device and at this spec/price is now surely a no brainer purchase for anyone looking for an ultra-portable iOS tablet device.

Does this mean we'll never see a meaningful update to the Mini again? So disappointing.

Really? Some people are never happy. Seems like a great update to me.

As far as I can tell, this is the cheapest 128GB iOS device ever. If you need a portable media center with local storage, it's a decent choice.

No. No they weren't.

Yes, yes they were.

Don't you understand? Everybody is forced to buy every Apple product. Or at least, that's what it seems like.

Seriously though- if you don't want it, don't buy it. No reason to get the slightest bit upset over it.

Are they looking to discontinue the iPad Mini? At that price point, you might as well spend an extra $30 for the iPad 9.7" update.

Makes no sense. Apple's decisions are all over the place.
