iOS 9.3 should be available to download today bringing to the table many features that have been floating around beta for quite some time, including the Night Shift mode, and advancements to Health Apps with CareKit. The Apple TV also gets a long-awaited software update today bringing Dictation, Siri for the App Store, iCloud Photo Support, and Folders for organization.

The iPad Air 2 is still available and still a rock solid iPad.  Even better, Apple has dropped the price $100 and they now start at $399!  These are available immediately at the reduced price. The iPad mini 4 and iPad mini 2 have not changed and are all currently available. The iPad Air (1st generation) has been discontinued and is no longer available.
