Apple ends iPad 2 circulation

By Steven Hawthorn on 24/03/14

iPad 2Apple has opted to retire the iPad 2, with the 4th-gen iteration taking its place as the cheapest tablet offered by the U.S. smart device giant.

The move ensures that all new customers have the updated Lightning connector on their device, which was initially a bone of contention when first introduced.

It also means that customers choosing the cheapest iPad option will be treated to a higher resolution 9.7-inch Retina Display, as well as the A6X chip.

Customers can choose between a WiFi-only iPad and a 16GB option, with black or white available.

In other Apple-related news, but shifting to mobile, the iPhone 5C is believed to be getting a reduction in storage capability, which would be a clear move to inspire more sales. The iPhone 5S, which is the flagship, has dominated, and as such the 5C has seen little success, but an 8GB version should allow for a drop in upfront cost.
