Tablet sales may have been declining over the last few years, but that hasn’t stopped the iStore from bringing the refreshed 9.7-inch iPad to South Africa anyway.
The company announced that it would be launching the device in the country on Saturday 8 April, being available in silver, grey and gold.
Apple’s new iPad starts at R5999 for the 32GB WiFi-only model, with a jump to R7999 for the 128GB WiFi-only variant.
Need cellular connectivity on your tablet? Then the 32GB WiFi/cellular variant will cost R8299, while the 128GB WiFi/cellular model has a R9999 price tag.
In terms of upgrades over the last iPad, we’ve got a capable A9 processor that’s not quite as powerful as the newer A9X and A10 chips released by Apple. Otherwise, we’ve got the usual garnishings, such as a 2048×1536 display, 8MP main camera and 1.3MP selfie shooter.
The news also comes after the iStore announced that it would be selling the red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, starting at R13 499. A portion of the proceeds from these sales will be going to the fight against HIV/Aids.
