The iPad 2 was first launched back in March of 2011, when the iPad 3 was launched, Apple reduced the price of the iPad 2 to $399 and it has been a popular device since then due to its lower price.

Last year Apple introduced the iPad Mini, which also retails for $399 for the new Retina version, and last years model retails for $299.

So it looks like Apple may stop production of the iPad 2 some time this year, although there is noting official from the company as yet.

The device has been popular with people who wanted a cheaper option, but Apple are looking to get these people to purchase the cheaper iPad Mini.
