If you've been wondering just when you'll be able to purchase an iPad Air 2 or iPad Mini 3 from T-Mobile, the mystery has been solved today. The magenta carrier itself has unveiled both the pre-order date as well as the actual release date for Apple's new tablets.
They will be up for pre-order starting tomorrow, October 22. And they will become available one week later, on October 29.
To get a 16GB iPad Air 2 you won't need to pay anything upfront, but you'll have to deal with 24 monthly installments of $26.24. If you want the 64GB model, you have to shell out $99 when you buy the tablet, with the installments remaining unchanged. The same is true for the 128GB SKU, though in that case you're required to put down $199.
For the iPad Mini 3, the situation is similar, though the 24 monthly installments will set you back $22.08. If you're going for the 16GB tablet, there's nothing to pay upfront. For the 64GB model, it's $99 down, while the 128GB version requires an upfront payment of $199.
Needless to say, all of these come with 4G LTE data connectivity built-in, they're not Wi-Fi-only. T-Mobile reminds its Simple Choice plan customers that they can add a tablet to their plan and match the data they already have for $10 per month.
