Sure, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro might have been the star of the show at Apple's spring event, but that isn't stopping Cupertino from giving the budget-conscious crowd something nice. The company has dropped the price of the iPad Air 2 from $499 (£399) to $399 (£349) -- yes, that's the same price as the smaller, slower iPad mini 4. It still starts with a modest 16GB of storage, like it or not, but $499 (£429) now gets you a healthier 64GB capacity. If you can live without the Pro's performance upgrades and input options, this might be your iPad of choice.
