Even if Apple did not officially announce the change at yesterday's September event, they completely eliminated the 16 GB iPad versions from the Apple store. The entry level models all start with 32 GB of storage now, the iPad Pro's top out at 256 GB.

Probably Tim Cook was too busy introducing iPhone 7, Apple Watch Series 2 and AirPods so he did not mention it, but even the iPad range of products got a significant bump today after yesterday's big event. All the 16 GB entry level models completely disappeared from the Apple Store today and were bumped up to 32 GB across the board. Apple also did this with their iPhone 6s models, mind you. Fortunately, prices largely remained the same, so you can now get an iPad Mini 4 or iPad Air 2 starting at $399 for the WiFi version. 

Same thing happened to the 9,7 inch iPad Pro and the 12,9 inch iPad Pro. In addition to having 32 GB of storage in their entry level models, they now have similar step ups to the Apple iPhone 7 lineup. The next step up for the iPad Pro's would be 128 GB and then 256 GB in case you really need that much storage on your iPad Pro. The 32 GB version starts at $599 for the 9,7 inch iPad Pro, the 12,9 inch model with 32 GB of storage will set you back $799. The 256 GB models will cost you $799 for the 9,7 inch iPad Pro and $999 for the 12,9 inch iPad Pro (WiFi only versions).
