APPLE HAS STARTED SELLING the iPad Air 2 at Apple Stores across the UK, after pre-orders for the tablet kicked off online last week.
The WiFi-only 16GB, 64GB and 128GB models are priced at £399, £459 and £559, respectively. The tablet is also available in a WiFi and cellular model, priced at £499, £549 and £659, respectively.
A representative at Apple's flagship Regent's Street store confirmed to The INQUIRER that the tablet will be in limited supply to begin with, so buyers will have to be quick.
John Lewis has also started selling the iPad Air 2, opening selected stores at 8am today to mark the launch of Apple's latest tablet. Its pricing is in line with Apple's.
UK operators O2, EE, Three and Vodafone have confirmed that they will be selling the iPad Air 2, but none appears to have the tablet in stock. O2 and EE have started taking pre-orders, while Three and Vodafone still show the device as 'coming soon'.
The iPad Air 2 was unveiled at Apple's high-profile launch event in Cupertino last week, and pre-orders began a day later.
Improving on the original iPad Air, the iPad Air 2 is the first Apple tablet to come with an anti-reflective display and a built-in Touch ID sensor, allowing the tablet to be unlocked by scanning a fingerprint.
There's also an upgraded A8X chip, batter cameras, faster WiFi and 4G support and a skinny 6.1mm thick case.
