iPad 2 price cuts in SA

The iPad 2 has received a price cut at Apple Premium Reseller (APR) DigiCape, indicating that price cuts at other South African retailers may be imminent.

This follows the announcement on Wednesday (7 March 2012) of the new iPad where Apple also revealed that it would continue selling the iPad 2 at a reduced price.

While US pricing of the device was reduced by $100 across the board, South Africa’s iPad 2 prices look like they’ll be slashed by R1,000 or more.

Though local iPad 2 prices have suffered under a weakening Rand, these cuts bring the cost of the device below its original 2011 launch price.

The table below shows the new iPad 2 pricing next to the previous recommended retail price.
