Apple Has Stopped Selling The iPad 2

Well, there goes one cheaper iPad option. Apple has stopped selling the iPad 2.

When the iPad Air went on sale in November last year, Apple continued offering a couple of iPad 2 models, with the 16GB Wi-Fi model for $449 and the 16GB 3G model for $598 (which was more expensive than they had been pre-Air). Now it has pulled both models from its online store, though it currently offers some refurb deals. Other retailers are likely to still have stock, but that will presumably run out quickly as well.

Wonder how long it will be before Apple stops offering iOS updates that run on the iPad 2? The original iPad can’t be updated to run iOS 7, and the iPad 2 is now three years old.

Apple has also added an 8GB version of the iPhone 5C to its lineup. It sells for $679 (the 16GB model is $739).
