The iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 are now available to pre-order in select countries. As it seems to be the case with Apple hardware at the moment, demand for the revamped iPad lineup is sure to exceed initial stock levels, therefore, if you want to be one of the first to own Apple’s latest tablets, then you better act now.

Tim Cook’s Apple has changed significantly since his time in charge. Largely for the better, although some would argue against that notion. As part of the internal changes made, there is an increasing importance on getting any new products into as many countries and territories as possible, that too quickly. Individuals looking to get in on the pre-order action will be able to secure the iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3 model of their choosing ahead of a delivery that is expected to arrive next week.
