Apple today announced the third generation of its 7.9-inch tablet with the new iPad mini 3. Apple says the new iPad mini 3 will start at $399 and be available for pre-order starting tomorrow. Storage capacities start at 16GB with both WiFi-only and Cellular options available. The new iPad mini 3 will be available in space gray, silver, and gold (for the first time).
While the iPad mini 3 doesn’t contain much aside from Touch ID and a gold option, the new lineup does contain a price change for the higher storage capacities as 32GB has dropped from the lineup. Buyers can now pickup a 64GB iPad mini 3 starting at $499 and a 128GB iPad mini 3 starting at $599, which is $100 less than the previous year’s lineup for the same storage capacities.
