One thought on “Apple Drops Prices, Bumps Storage on iPad Line

  • Overall I think that is good news. My personal opinion is that these new storage/price combinations is what it should have been for months now; especially for back-to-school shopping.

    Also, it seems the Apple TV 3 has been removed from the Apple Store (sorry, I still call it that).

    I now have a 65″ 4K UHD TV with HDR, so I am really hoping Apple updates the Apple TV to support 4K and HDR. My new TV has Netflix built in, so I upgraded my Netflix account to get 4K content. Let me just say that it is jaw dropping. I watched the new season of Narcos in 4K and it is breathtakingly good (both in picture quality and as a show).
