New IPad announced 32GB Wifi only £339 from 24/3 @ Apple

Found 21st Mar 2017
Apple just released new IPad (details and price above). Doesn't support pencil or keyboard. Think this is the replacement to the Air 2 (that isn't available to buy new on Apple Store anymore). Nearly the same specs as Pro version.

Do compare this to the Pro. Specs are nearly the same. Few differences (processor, speakers, camera, screen tho it's also a Retina display but rest the SAME).

New iPad compare to iPad Air 2

I wonder why the price drop, normally they're £399 for a basic model

Wonder if there will be a new Pro when new HQ opens....
Specs aren't the same OP. Might want to edit your post before it catches others out.

Better camera, screen, processor and speakers in the Pro 9.7.

Happy?

Wow. Calm down. Was trying to help you and others. oO

Also, it's not "nearly" the same. There is a fair bit cut back from the pro, if you want to be like that about it.

Nearly the same. Without getting pedantic. But I'm sure people can look at specs etc themselves. X)

So this isn't an iPad AIr 3 is it? It has a better CPU but is slightly heavier than the iPad Air 2- i am confused. Is this a brand new iPad and where did it come from? When was it announced?
Original Poster
Not a new iPad Air 3. Just now on the store & news. This is just called IPad.

Externally seems to be back to the iPad Air v1 size/weight.
Looks like an iPad Air with improved processor and storage. Certainly not close to a pro

Hence why clearly states 'NEARLY'.

I think you will find all the comments you made are there and I am not … I think you will find all the comments you made are there and I am not posting for heat and if I was I wouldn't post something that's Apple because it will go cold all by itself lol. Get a grip mate.



You removed my comparison link from the op and changed the wording to say "nearly the same". Please stop misleading people.

You even left my wording stating it was a link to compare. X)

$329 dollars in US. What a joke.

Thanks.
Isn't this just the standard price for the newly released iPad 9.7?
Original Poster
Yes and was to let people know. New IPad.
pricing is nice but looks like they lowered the quality from the ipad air 2. No longer fully laminated display, thicker and heavier. I was expecting an improved device for more money not a worse one for less
So what price will the iPad Air 2 be selling for now I wonder?
Original Poster
Still might be more to come when HQ opens (I'm hoping).

Got a feeling IPad Air 2 will go oss (refurb / second hand only) and this will be replacement
Good deal

So what price will the iPad Air 2 be selling for now I wonder?


Refurb Air 2 is now £299 but that's only for 16GB memory - maybe it will drop further after the release of this new iPad?
So why would anyone now buy the iPad Mini 4?

It's not nearly a Pro though is it, it's nearly an Air
Original Poster
Is the Air 2 on Apple Store no. Go post your own and be pedantic / a child on that. End of.
Processor is different.
Screen is different.
Speakers are different.
Camera is different.

What else is there in a tablet? oO

Agreed, full sized ipad or smaller android tab makes more sense. The guardian article talks about a 'cheap ipad mini' ??

Does anyone know how much sales tax is?

Does anyone know how much sales tax is?



Between 0% and 10%, depending on the state and products as i understand.
Looks like this may not have the fully laminated screen which the Air 2 has - according to some online sources. That might explain why it's cheaper than the old model.

So the point of HDUK is to post helpful deals.

I'm really not an apple fan....however is this really a good price for a tablet with this spec?

Yes it's apple but does that mean that even tho it's twice the price of other brands it's a good deal because of it badge??

Seriously are ipads that much better than the Competition??
If they really are that much better then it seems like a decent price....but I'm really not sure.

Maybe someone who uses multiple OS can educate me?

I use asus android tablet 7" sometimes a windows 10 laptop and the first gen iPad Air and there's no comparison! The iPad is in a different class! As regard if this is a deal then that is questionable as it's full retail.

My experience is that iPhone vs Android there is no difference. Battery life seems better on my Android phone if I really had to reach for something. When it comes to tablets, I have only had bad experiences with Android tablets and will only use iPads now because of it.
It is identical to the Air 2 except it has an A9 processor, is 1.5mm thicker and 34g heavier. The battery is slightly more powerful but still allegedly gives 10hrs usage.

​i switched from from IPhone to my Nexus 6P and never looked back, but when it comes to tablets though the iPad is the tablet of choice, my Air 2 is smooth as butter with iOS running and the experience is brilliant with the polish of apps alot more slicker on there compared to android imo
