We were all expecting the iPad Air 3. At least, that's what all the rumours pointed towards. Instead what we got was a hybrid of the original iPad Air and the iPad Air 2 – simply called the iPad (2017).
That sounds like it should be bad news, and in some ways that’s very much the case. This new iPad is both fatter and heavier than the iPad Air 2 (which it replaces) and the screen isn’t as nice. On paper, the new iPad has a less capable processor as well.
But there's good news, too. The big headline is that the new iPad is considerably cheaper than the iPad Air 2. In fact, at £339, 2017’s iPad knocks a full £60 off the price, plus you get 32GB of storage, which is double that of the tablet it replaces. If you need more storage, there’s a 128GB version costing £429, while the 4G version costs £469 for the 32GB model and £559 for the 128GB.£349.99 Buy Now
