You now have another chance to get the iPad for less if you missed last month’s discount on the base model. The 64GB, WiFi-only iPad was reduced by $30 by Amazon, nearly setting a new low price of $300. Both the silver and space grey models now have this price, and if you want more storage, you can even save on the 256GB model. The more powerful iPad is now $50 cheaper and at an all-time low price of $429.
The standard iPad, which we rated at 86 when it launched last year, is currently the finest slab you can get on a cheap. When the tablet was updated last year, Apple increased the base storage from 32GB to 64GB, and it is powered by the A13 Bionic chip. As a result, you’ll have more capacity by default for things like apps, images, papers, and the like, which is crucial if you intend to use the tablet for work or the forthcoming academic year. Speaking of school, the 10.2-inch iPad can be used as your primary digital notebook because it is compatible with both the company’s Smart Keyboard and the first-generation Apple Pencil.
Although the entry-level iPad doesn’t have as sleek of a design as some of the more expensive models, it still has a lot going for it. In addition to strong performance, it has a 2,160 x 1,620 resolution Retina touchscreen with True Tone technology, a physical Home button with TouchID, and an updated 12MP front-facing camera with Center Stage, which will keep you in the center of the frame when you’re on FaceTime calls an 8-megapixel rear camera and a rear camera with an 8-megapixel sensor. We also value the iPad’s long-lasting battery; although Apple claims a battery life of up to 10 hours, we were able to get about 14 hours out of it during our testing.
The cost of this iPad has just decreased to its all-time low on Amazon.
One of our all-time favorite iPad discounts is returning if you missed it last month.
The iPad 10.2-inch 2021 64GB is currently only $299 on Amazon. This is one of the finest back-to-school bargains you can find, with a $30 discount making it the lowest price we’ve seen for Apple’s well-liked tablet.
The iPad 10.2-inch 256GB is also available for $429 on Amazon(opens in a new tab) if you need extra capacity, saving you $50 off the list price.
The new A13 Bionic chip in this tablet improved performance for us. You can multitask and quickly move between apps, making it ideal for surfing, streaming, and gaming. However, it cannot compete with the 11-inch iPad Pro’s CPU for demanding applications like video editing.
The front camera on the 10.2″ iPad has been improved and now supports Center Stage. During video conversations, Center Stage tracks your face and keeps you in the center of the frame in addition to being great for selfies. This means that even if you move around your room, your friends, family, and coworkers will still be able to see you.
If you purchase the $159 Smart Keyboard ($149 at Amazon) and the $99 Apple Pencil ($99 at Amazon) you can also transform your iPad into a respectable workstation. With these accessories, typing and taking notes are a pleasure, but, unfortunately, the Apple Pencil has no place to dock when not in use.
Although we strongly advise taking advantage of this fantastic offer, if you’re still seeking the ideal tablet, consult our lists of the best Apple offers and the top tablets before making your choice.
