While Tim Cook and Co. didn't make any iPad announcements on stage earlier, Apple's tablet range did get a few changes today. Like the iPhone line, Apple is bumping the minimum storage to 32GB across the board and keeping the same price as the previous 16GB models. The iPad Pros now top out at 256GB of storage, but you'll actually be paying less per gigabyte than in the past.

Things get a little more complicated, depending on which model you're looking for, however: The iPad mini 2 now only comes in a 32GB size for $269 or $399, depending on whether you go WiFi or cellular. The WiFi-only models of iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 4 now cost $399 for 32GB or $499 for 128GB, but those are your only storage options. (For reference, an iPad mini 4 with 128GB was $599 at launch.)

On those iPad Pros, Apple has actually dropped the price on each storage option. Now, the high-end 12.9-inch, 256GB WiFi version will run you $999, down from $1099 previously. Same goes for the 9.7 inch model, which got a $50 price cut on the middle tier and $100 less expensive on the 256GB.
