The iPad (2017) has gone up for pre-orders on Flipkart a few weeks after Apple initially announced the tablet. The slate has gained prominence as the brand’s most affordable large-sized tablet.
This has held true even after the iPad (2017) gets converted into INR, with the entry-level 32GB Wi-Fi only iPad (2017) being priced at Rs 28900. The cost maxes out at Rs 47900 for the 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular variant. There’s also a 32GB Wi-Fi + Cellular version for Rs 39900, but that hasn’t shown up on Flipkart. Neither has the 128GB Wi-Fi only model.
Flipkart’s currently offering a No Cost EMI scheme starting at Rs 3213 per month for interested buyers. Axis Bank Buzz credit card owners get the benefit of an extra 5% off. While Apple hasn’t officially stated when the device will be available in India, the e-commerce site says it’ll be released on April 14.
The iPad (2017) is generally considered the spiritual successor to the iPad Air 2. It looks just like the latter and has quite a few specs in common, including the older model’s 9.7-inch size. Two areas where the newer slate stands out is in the processing and power department since it has a faster A9 chipset and 32.4Wh battery.
