Apple shakes up its iPhone and iPad offerings

ipad rangeIt’s all change at the Apple store with the re-release of the fourth-generation iPad and the addition of a new iPhone 5C.

The fourth-generation iPad, which is priced at £329, replaces the aging iPad 2 in Apple’s lineup.

That makes it just a tenner more than the iPad Mini with Retina Display, and £70 less than the iPad Air. The iPad with Retina is only available with 16GB of storage. A cellular model is also available for £429.

Kicking out the iPad 2 in favour of the iPad 4 means that all of Apple’s iPads are now using the company’s Lightning connector and also makes the iPad Mini the only tablet from Apple not to feature a Retina Display.

Aside from a reduced amount of storage, the latest iPhone 5C is identical in every way to the hardware that launched back in October.

It features a 4-inch Retina display, Apple’s A6 processor, and an 8-megapixel camera.

This leaves the iPhone 4S as being the only iOS device with a 30-pin connector port — I’m expecting it to be pensioned off very soon.
