    looking around in the forum, just purchased one


    Isn't the iPad Air 2...new? Like how is it budget? It's under the pro and starts at $499?

    Confused

    The 9.7 inch iPads always started at $499. Not sure what made you think differently.

    Until 2 months previous the Air2 was apple's Flagship model.

    Since the pro was releasd some forum posts in here (Predominantly Pro adopters;)) now consider the A2 "Old tech" :confused: Go figure!

    Air 2 is a great, powerful device and still the "Flagship" standard size ipad...And certainly Not "budget"

    How is a $500 tablet a budget one?... especially when you want to buy one for each of your children for Christmas.

    Why would you pay that price for a product that's been out over a year? That's stupid. It is old tech no matter how you slice it.

    If its the "Only" latest standard size ipad out there and it costs that, then its the only option no matter how you slice it..(The pro is ruled out due to size and cost)

    Rule of thumb, its not old tech until apple supersede with a newer model, like for like.

    To sumerize, until air3 the A2 is still the New, Current standard sized iPad available

    64gb with celluar - $520
