Apple is planning to release a smaller version of its bigger iPad


We’re just a few days away from Apple’s next launch event, and 9to5Mac has given us an idea of what to expect in a report that it published on Friday. According to the report, Apple is planning to launch a smaller version of its bigger iPad with a starting price of $600. What’s funny is that this smaller iPad Pro is supposed to be 9.7 inches, which is the same size as the iPad Air 2, but the report claims that the new iPad Pro won’t be replacing the iPad Air 2.

Just days before Apple’s next media event set to take place on March 21, we may have just learned the starting price for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro the company is expected to unveil during the event. As reported by 9to5Mac, the smaller iPad Pro model will launch with a starting price of $600 for the 32 GB/WiFi-only model. For a higher, currently unknown price, people can get the 128 GB model, which has WiFi and LTE capabilities. Compared to existing hardware, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro’s price tag puts it above the 16 GB iPad Air 2, but on par with its 64 GB variation. The base level 12.9-inch iPad Pro that only has WiFi is still $200 more at $800, whereas the 128 GB with WiFi and 128 GB with WiFi and Cellular are $949 and $1,079, respectively. According to 9to5Mac’s sources, the new iPad Pro will not replace the iPad Air 2, but its predecessor, the iPad Air, is expected to be discontinued soon. The larger iPad Pro and iPad Mini 4 will not be updated during the event, as they only launched last year.
