Local pricing confirmed on Apple’s new iPad Air tablets

Apple’s latest iPads will be on sale in South Africa next week, and local Apple distributor Core Group has confirmed how much South Africans will be expected to pay for the privilege of owning them.

Our predicted prices ended up being not entirely accurate, coming in slightly lower than the final prices:

Product RRP (Incl VAT) Product RRP (Incl VAT)
iPad Air 16GB WiFi R5999 iPad Air 16GB WiFi + 3G R7799
iPad Air 32GB WiFi R7399 iPad Air 32GB WiFi + 3G R8999
iPad Air 64GB WiFi R8699 iPad Air 64GB WiFi + 3G R9999
iPad Air 128GB WiFi R9999 iPad Air 128GB WiFi + 3G R11 499

The good news is you can now add these new iPads to your Christmas Wish List in the hopes that Santa brings you one on December 25. The bad is is that the iPad mini with Retina Display isn’t included in this wave. The new, tiny iPad was delayed by nearly two weeks in the US market, and there’s no indication of whether that will apply here. If it does, a mid-December launch sounds good for Christmas sales. If not, we suspect an early January arrival.
