Apple Quietly Launches iPad mini 4 with A8 CPU Starting at $439

During today’s Apple special event when SVP Phil Schiller was discussing the company’s iPad line up and prices, he spent less than 30 seconds talking about the new iPad mini 4.

All he said was there’s a “brand new iPad mini 4, that we’re also launching today,” along with noting the new iPad mini 4 is the iPad Air 2 into the smaller 7.9-inch form factor, starting at $399USD/$439 CAD.

The iPad mini 4, powered by the A8 CPU from the iPhone 6, is priced as follows:

  • 16GB – $439; Cellular $579
  • 64GB – $549; Cellular $689
  • 128GB – $659; Cellular $799

These prices are the same as last year’s iPad mini 3, except now you get an upgraded A8 processor. Surprisingly, the lower Loonie has affected these iPad prices (yet). Also, looks like Digitimes was correct in saying there would be no iPad Air 3 this fall.

Anyone going to order one an iPad mini 4?
