Last week Apple unveiled its new tablets which we now know as the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. Pre-orders for both tablets opened up on Apple’s website on October 17th and delivery is expected to take place within the week. Now stock is arriving at the company’s brick-and-mortar stores as well. Apple has confirmed that iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 are now available for in-store purchase at several of its locations not only in the U.S. but in other major markets around the world.
Apple confirmed to CNBC that some of its stores in the United States, Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand now have both tablets in stock. If you live in any of these countries and have an Apple Store nearby you can pick up a unit from there provided that the store has got both new tablets in stock.
The company’s new tablets are heading to China as well though the Wi-Fi only configurations will be sold, not the ones with cellular capabilities. The iPad Air 2 starts at $499 for Wi-Fi only 16GB configuration while the iPad mini 3 starts at $399 in the same configuration.
Apple’s website can be used to see if in-store pickup is possible from one of its location near you. Otherwise you can simply pop down to your local Apple Store and ask if they have the new tablets in stock.
