iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini 2

As it introduced a range of new iPads at its live event, Apple decided that it is time to drop the price of iPad Air, iPad mini 2 and the iPad mini.

While announcing that the original iPad Air, iPad mini and the iPad mini with Retina display will be around until the new versions start to ship next week, Apple's VP of Worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, announced that these "older" devices will be getting a price cut.

The predecessor of the thinner and more powerful iPad Air 2, the iPad Air will start at US $399 for the WiFi only 16GB version, iPad mini 2, aka iPad mini with Retina diplay, will start at US $299 for the 16GB WiFi version and the iPad mini has dropped down to US $249 for the 16GB WiFi only version.

While they might not be around for long, iPad Air does not sound like a bad deal now that the price has dropped and the $249 iPad mini is the cheapest Apple tablet to date.
