I think it would be interesting if Apple made four different iPads models rather than three. Half of the selling point for the next generation could be value, along with new features. That was the case for the first iPad which surprisingly sold for $500.
- $200 - iPad Mini c - A6 - 16GB, 32GB
- $300 - iPad Mini s - A6X - 16GB, 32GB
- $400 - iPad c - A7 - 32GB, 64GB, 128GB
- $500 - iPad s - A7X - 32GB, 64GB, 128GB
The cellular antenna would be a $100 upgrade (marked down from $130).
The “c” versions of the iPads would have plastic backs that come in a few different colors like the iPhone 5c. The “s” versions would have retina displays and the “c” versions wouldn’t.
