Apple didn’t talk about iPads at all during this week’s iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 launch event. But the company did make some changes to its iPad lineup.

Thanks to a series of price drops and storage bumps, the cheapest new iPad you can buy is a $269 iPad mini 2 with 32GB of storage. There’s no such thing as a new iPad with less than 32GB of storage anymore.

Here’s an overview of the new iPad pricing:

iPad mini

  • iPad mini 2 with 32GB for $269
  • iPad mini 4 with 32GB for $399
  • iPad mini 4 with 128GB for $499

iPad Air

  • iPad Air 2 with 32GB for $399
  • iPad Air 2 with 128GB for $499

iPad Pro

  • 9.7 inch iPad Pro with 32GB for $599
  • 9.7 inch iPad Pro with 128GB for $699
  • 9.7 inch iPad Pro with 256GB for $799
  • 12.9 inch iPad Pro with 32GB for $799
  • 12.9 inch iPad Pro with 128GB for $899
  • 12.9 inch iPad Pro with 256GB for $999

Note that these prices are for the WiFi-only models. You can add $130 to the price of pretty much any model to get a WiFi+ Cellular variant.

Apple’s high-end iPad tablets are still relatively pricey compared with Android, and even entry-level Windows tablets. But with a starting price of $269 for a model with a 7.9 inch, 2048 a 1536 pixel display and support for iOS 10, Apple’s cheapest tablets look a lot more competitive for value-oriented customers.

Just keep in mind that the iPad mini 2 has an Apple A7 processor, which is a 3-year-old chip.
