Get the Lowest Prices anywhere on Macs, iPads and Apple Watches: Apple Price Guides updated December 2nd
 

 

With iPad refresh looming, stock runs low on Apple's older models

Consumers are finding some iPad models difficult to get their hands on, as resellers have begun showing depleted stock ahead of a late March press event at which Apple is widely expected to debut the iPad Air 2's successor.




As indicated in AppleInsider's own price guides, numerous iPad models are on backorder or simply sold out. The iPad Air and Air 2 —the two devices most likely to be supplanted —are experiencing the most serious stock outs.

Also affected are older iPad mini versions. While the iPad mini 4 is still in abundant supply, the mini 2 is harder to find.

The supply constraints don't appear to affect Apple's own retail channels, as the majority if iPad models are currently listed as "In Stock" through the company's online store.

Apple is rumored to introduce the so-called iPad Air 3 alongside a new 4-inch iPhone at a press event on March 22. Some reports have suggested that Apple may actually brand it as a smaller iPad Pro, bringing with it support for the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard.

iPad Air 2

At 6.1 mm thin and weighing less than a pound, Apple's iPad Air 2, which was released in October 2014, features Touch ID and a precision unibody enclosure made of anodized aluminum. The display features a fully-laminated design with a custom anti-reflective coating that reduces glare by 56 percent over previous versions and operates at a resolution of 2048 x 1536 (264 ppi). Powered by an Apple-designed A8X chip and M8 motion coprocessor, the iPad Air 2 also features 802.11ac Wi-Fi with Multiple-In-Multiple-Out (MIMO) technology. An 8MP sensor and advanced optics in the iSight camera allow for the capture of 1080p HD video, while a FaceTime HD camera can take 1.2MP photos with burst mode support and exposure control. The iPad Air 2 is available in two storage capacities (32GB and 128GB) and three finishes (Silver, Space Gray and Gold).
