iPad mini with Retina display group

Apple has launched the iPad mini that fans wanted originally: the iPad mini with Retina display. It will go on sale in late November, following the launch of the iPad Air on 1st November.

That original iPad mini will continue to sell alongside the new model at a reduced price of £249 for the Wi-Fi version, and £349 for the 3G model. Both have 16GB of storage.

The second-gen iPad mini will cost £50 more than the old 16GB version (when it was selling for the original £269 price), which makes it £319. That's not too bad considering the screen quality and performance on offer.

Since 16GB isn't really enough when you have a Retina display, that puts the 32GB version as the minimum realistic option and that costs a whopping £399 - the same as the 16GB iPad Air.

The 64GB costs £479 and a 128GB (the new capacity) model will set you back £559.

Add £100 to each capacity and you have the prices for the 3G / 4G models. (Don't forget you also get a GPS receiver in the cellular models - something that's missing from Wi-Fi-only iPads). 

So the 16GB version costs £419, 32GB is £499, 64GB cost £579 and the flagship iPad mini is now the 128GB cellular which costs £659.
