Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    I was a bit disappointed that the new iPad wasn’t introduced with a new lower price as was rumoured. The rumors were that the price would be dropped by $50 US, but the iPad retained the same $329 US price as the previous model.

    But then I realized that the new iPad is basically the 9.7 inch iPad Pro that was introduced just 2 years ago in March 2016.

    The differences are:

    9.7″ iPad Pro, March 2016:
    Apple A9X (2 cores @ 2.16GHz)
    2GB Memory
    12MP camera
    9 hours battery life
    $729 (32 GB)

    9.7″ iPad, March 2018:
    Apple A10 (4 cores @ 2.3GHz)
    4GB Memory
    8MP camera
    10 hours battery life
    $329 (32 GB)

    So Apple is selling the iPad Pro from just 2 years ago, with much faster performance and a slightly smaller camera, for just 45% of the price!

    When you look at it that way, it’s really not a bad price for what you get. 👍

    And when you consider that the educational price of $299 is an even smaller 41% of the 2016 iPad Pro price, it is even better.
