Apple Australia just made every iPad you want more expensive
No pricing yet for iPad Pro.
The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are actually cheaper in Australia than the US, but Apple isn't treating Aussies so well when it comes to its iPad tablet range.
While Apple has announced that it will be releasing the plus-sized iPad Pro, which sports a 12.9 inch screen, in November, it hasn't yet announced Australian pricing. What it has done is raised the prices on almost all of its existing iPad models.
The table below shows the prices Apple was charging last week for its iPad models, and what it is now asking in its official online store:
|Model||Old price||New price|
|iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi 16GB||$619.00||$699.00|
|iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi 64GB||$739.00||$829.00|
|iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi 128GB||$859.00||$959.00|
|iPad Air 2 SIM 16GB||$779.00||$859.00|
|iPad Air 2 SIM 64GB||$899.00||$989.00|
|iPad Air 2 SIM 128GB||$1,019.00||$1,119.00|
|iPad Air Wi-Fi 16GB||$499.00||$569.00|
|iPad Air Wi-Fi 32GB||$549.00||$629.00|
|iPad Air SIM 16GB||$659.00||$729.00|
|iPad Air SIM 32GB||$709.00||$789.00|
The only model that hasn't seen a price rise is the iPad Mini 2. iPad Air 2 prices are up by between $80 and $100. The upgraded iPad Mini 4 replaces the previous 3 model.
Apple has form in this area: prices for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus went up in March this year, and even after the release of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the 6 and 6 Plus will cost more than they did at launch.
