Apple quietly updates iPads: More storage for the same -- or lower -- prices

Apple just made its iPads more attractive by bumping the minimum storage of the Air 2, Mini 4 and Mini 2, while dropping the prices of their more capacious brethren, and cutting a C-note off the price of both sizes of iPad Pro, too.

Apple finally doubled the storage capacity of its entry-level iPhone 6S/6S Plus and iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models to 32GB, but the memory boost isn't just limited to its phones.

On Wednesday, the company stealthily replaced all 16GB options for its lineup of older iPads as well, upgrading the iPad Air 2, the iPad Mini 4 and the iPad Mini 2 to a 32GB minimum capacity.

You'll also pay less for the 128GB tiers, and prices for the iPad Pro have dropped by up to $100 for both the 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch models.

The updated iPad pricing is available immediately through the online Apple store and the company's retail stores.
