I know it's never a good time to buy any Apple product. I remember all those years ago I waited for a new MacBook to come out. Leopard had just been released, new MacBook was released, so I bought one. Then 5 months later (an usually short update window) a new MacBook came out! But anyway, I'm after a 'budget' iPad. I decided to go with the iPad Air because an iPad Mini isn't too much of an upgrade, screen-size wise, from my old Kindle Fire. I'm looking for something that will semi-replace my MacBook (yes, the same MacBook I was talking about, bought 8 years ago and still going strong!). So my conundrum is, the iPad Air 2 never replaced the iPad Air, which just changed to a 'budget' version. But, the iPad Air 2 is looking likely to be updated in the near future. Will an iPad Air 3 get rid of the iPad Air and bump the iPad Air 2 into the 'budget' category (and hopefully a price decrease)? Or do you think they'll keep the iPad Air as the 'budget' version? I know they kept the iPad Mini 2 as the 'budget' version of the Mini line. And the iPad Air shares similar specs in terms of processor, etc. So it leads me to think they'll maybe keep the iPad Air as the budget version. But I don't know! Any thoughts would be appreciated!
