The iPhone 4S 8GB is still available for $529.
The cheapest 9.7-inch screen iPad is now the 16GB iPad with Retina Display priced at $529. This replaces the older iPad 2.
The most inexpensive iPad in the entire range is the 16GB iPad Mini at $349.
The recently introduced iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina Display are still available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities and start at $598 and $479 respectively.
