Apple's New iPads: The Price Rises for Fresh Features, Colors and Specs

The 10th-gen entry-level iPad adds an A14 chip and USB-C, and arrives Oct. 26 -- it can be preordered now

The entry-level Wi-Fi model costs $449 (£499, AU$749), and only comes with 64GB of storage; there's a step-up 256GB model for $150 more that almost feels mandatory
