The price of the new sixth-generation iPad didn’t change in the United States compared to the previous fifth-generation model, but prices for the new tablet have been lowered in several other countries around the world.
Prior to the launch of the new iPad, rumors had suggested it could be priced as low as $259 in the United States, which did not happen, but the price has indeed dropped slightly in multiple countries.
In the UK, for example, the entry-level fifth-generation iPad was priced at £339, with the new sixth-generation model available for £319.
In Canada, the fifth-generation 32GB iPad cost $449, while the equivalent sixth-generation model is now available for $429.
In Germany, France, and other European countries, the new iPad is priced starting at €349 to €369, down from €399 to €419. Prices appear to be lower in most, if not all European countries.
Prices have not changed in all countries where the new iPad is available. In New Zealand and Australia, for example, prices remain unchanged, starting at A$469 and NZ$539, respectively. Prices have also not shifted in some Asian countries, including Japan, Singapore, and Korea, but prices are lower in others like China, and Thailand.
In the United States, the entry-level 32GB sixth-generation iPad is priced at $329, the price as the fifth-generation model. A 128GB version is available for $429, while Wi-Fi + Cellular models can be purchased for an additional $130 over the standard Wi-Fi only price.
