Apple prices up iPad for UK

Rip-off Britain?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Apple has said how much the iPad will cost Brits when its 'magical' device goes on sale on 28 May.

The Wi-Fi only version will be priced at £429, £499 and £599 for the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models, respectively.

Add 3G to the package and you'll pay an extra £100 for each of those storage capacities: £529, £599 and £699.

Prices include VAT. At current exchange rates, the £429 iPad is priced at the equivalent of a sales tax less $536, so you may still be better off buying in the US - it costs $499 plus sales tax - if you're heading in that direction in the near future.

Apple will begin taking advance orders on Monday. ®
