The iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 may have been the headline-makers at Apple’s latest event, but the company quietly updated its iPad lineup, too.

Just like its older brother the iPhone, Apple is bumping up the minimum storage option of the iPad to 32GB, however that 32GB iPad gets to keep the price of the 16GB model — good news for those in the market for an iPad.

The biggest price cuts come with the iPad Pro, especially as we get into the higher storage options. The smaller, 9.7-inch iPad Pro now comes at $600 for the 32GB model, $700 for the 128GB model, and $800 for the 256GB model. The larger, 12.9-inch iPad Pro starts at $800 for the 32GB model, with options for a $900 128GB model and a $1,100 256GB model.

Of course, the iPad Pro wasn’t the only device to get a price cut. The iPad Mini 2 also got a price reduction — along with a reduction in options. Now, you can only get the iPad Mini 2 with 32GB — $270 for the Wi-Fi only model, or $400 for the model with cellular support.

Next up is the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4, which are also getting a few price cuts. The Wi-Fi-only models of those iPads are now available for $400 for the 32GB version or $500 for the 128GB version — however those are your only storage options. That’s actually not a bad price — at launch the iPad Mini 4 had a price tag of $600.

Sure, these may not have been the updates that some were hoping for when it came to the iPad, but it’s nice to see that even Apple’s flagship tablet is getting a price decrease — and it’s good news for those who have been waiting to buy an iPad.

The newly priced iPads are available from the Apple website starting now.

The iPhone 16 isn’t even out yet, but that hasn’t stopped rumors about the iPhone 17 from swirling already. One of the latest comes from The Information, and it claims that a thinner iPhone 17 may be released in 2025 as a completely new addition to the lineup. It’s reported to be code-named D23 internally, and it’s expected to be a major redesign — potentially as big of a redesign as the iPhone X was in 2017.

The main changes for the D23 iPhone are a very thin body and a smaller cutout in the display. There’s also some talk that Apple may replace the Dynamic Island with a pinhole cutout, and we may see that as soon as the anticipated iPhone 16 launch this fall. Other changes might include moving the rear camera from the upper-left corner to the top center. The screen could fall somewhere between the 6.1 inches of the iPhone 16 Pro and 6.9 inches of the iPhone 16 Pro Max.
