Nov2November 2, 2012: The first-generation iPad mini goes on sale.

Boasting a reduced screen size of 7.9 inches — instead of the then-standard 9.7 inches — the iPad mini is the fifth iPad to be released by Apple. It’s praised for being Apple’s most affordable iPad ever, although some people complain about the lack of a Retina display.

The price of a brand-new iPad Pro just got a lot cheaper today after Apple slashed prices on both the 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch models by up to $100.

Apple’s price drop coincides with a storage upgrade for other iPad models, including the iPad Air 2 which is available in 32GB and 128GB configurations on the WiFi-only models.
