Probably similar to the iPhone 6 for storage and the pricing will be inline with what it is today.

I expect them to go with the same consumer-hostile storage tiers/pricing as the iPhones (16GB, 64GB, 128GB).

It's obvious that they don't want anyone to buy the low-end model to protect their precious margins at the cost of decent user experience.

That is what I'm hoping for, getting a 64GB for £479 will be great :D

I have a feeling the 16gb option for the iPad will be gone forever! 32gb being the base model and pricing to remain the same..

Yupp, I think the same.

Storage and RAM is something where Apple really shaves the dollars.

Any place but here or there....
The more I think about this, the more I believe they go the iP6 route of 16, 64 and 128. While 32, 64 and 128 makes more sense (to me), I'll be quite surprised if the 16 is dropped as the entry level storage size.

I certainly won't complain about getting 48 more gb of ram at the same price of the 32gb, even if 32gb was my previous sweet spot.

They won't change it until the numbers suggest that they should. I'd imagine that not as many people are as upset about a 16GB iPad as are about a 16GB iPhone given that the latter device is used so much more frequently.

16/64/128 at prices of 16/32/64. That then makes four price points - just like the iPhone.

By that I mean, the cost of an iPad Air is the same cost as the next storage size up equivalent iPad Mini.
