    I'm thinking of trading in my ipad 2 at Amazon. They currently offer $150. Will that value go down once the next ipad is announced on Tuesday (or released whenever)?

    On a related note - does anyone have any advice on if I should trade in towards the ipad Air or the ipad 4th gen? Or maybe just wait for the next ipad since it appears to be coming out soon?

    The trade in price of an iPad 2 has been dropping and will continue to drop over time as newer iPads are introduced.
    The iPad 4 is only available new in the 16gb version. You can regularly check the refurbished section of the nearest Apple Store or the Apple online store in the refurbished section to see what's available. The price of the iPad Air will drop after the release of the new iPad Air 2, but usually only the lowest storage capacity model is kept.

    If you can afford it, the upcoming iPad Air 2 would be the best choice as it will have the latest processor and can use all features of the new iOS 8. It will also be supported in the future for a longer time than the existing iPads.
