Apple today announced the upgraded version of iPad 4 tablet for $399 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model and replaced iPad 2.
The iPad 4, which has a 9.7-inch Retina display and supports LTE carriers, is available at $399 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model and $529 for the 16GB Wi-Fi + cellular model at all four major U.S. telecoms such as AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or Verizon.
The fourth-generation iPad was launched in 2012, while the iPad 2 was launched in 2011.
Apple discontinued the iPad 4 last year when it launched its current flagship tablet, the iPad Air. It had reduced the iPad 2’s price to $399 in 2012.
“For $399 customers can get iPad with a stunning 9.7-inch Retina display, fast A6X chip, and 5MP iSight camera, offering a dramatic upgrade in power, performance and value compared to the iPad 2 it replaces,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
