iPad Air 2, Mini 3 prices and Friday launch prospect for India
The Apple iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 tablets released to some markets in October but buyers in India are still waiting for them to arrive. These are hotly awaited top-flight devices and there’s some promising news today as the iPad Air 2 and Mini 3 are both touted for a Friday launch for India. Although Apple has not confirmed this it does seem very likely, and we also have details of prices.
Apple makes a habit of releasing new devices in India before the weekend for optimum sales on opening day. Also it has been noticed that the Apple India online homepage now proudly displays the iPad Air 2 instead of the iPhone 6 that took centre stage previously. As well as this, one retailer who is normally reliable has tweeted today to say that the iPad Air 2 and Mini 3 are “coming tomorrow.”
All of the above makes it virtually certain that prospective buyers for these tablets in India should be prepared for sales to open on Friday, and with that in mind you might like a refresher on pricing. We’ll begin with the larger of the two iPads and the iPad Air 2 price for India starts at Rs. 35,900.
