Whether you’ve been thinking about finally getting a tablet; are a long-time PC or Android user curious about making an OS change; or have realized it’s time to replace your Apple device that has seen better days, there’s a lot we don’t want to miss.
Right now, Amazon is discounting the 2021 Apple 10.2-inch iPad to $299, down from its $329 price tag! That’s for the 64GB model. If you upgrade to the 256GB model, you can save $50 on the space gray color and pick it up for $429 (was $499).
It’s not a huge discount, but it’s something. And the value is even greater when you consider that this model comes with 64GB of storage, while its predecessor only offered 32GB for the same price.
Meanwhile, the new iPad is also faster (thanks to an upgraded processor) and equipped with a greatly improved front camera, the better to participate in video calls. This camera, combined with Apple’s Center Stage feature, automatically keeps the focus on the subject (you) as you move around – and it will even expand if someone else enters the picture.
Not much else has changed. The iPad still relies on Apple’s Lightning connector (instead of USB-C, which higher-end models and the new iPad Mini have embraced). It still uses a home button with Touch ID and still has a fairly thick bezel along the top and bottom edges.
“I really like my iPad. I haven’t had it very long but so far no problems. I upgraded from an iPad mini and am very happy with the size of this one. Arrived quickly and packaged excellently,” wrote one enthusiastic shopper.
Another exclaimed: “Latest gen iPad at a price less than most refurbished options. This replaces my old iPad Gen 2 version and it’s amazing how long the battery lasts. Runs all the latest apps too!”
“There are so many different things this device can be used for. I got mine to start a digital planner and it works great,” said one more satisfied customer. “One charge lasts for days. I didn’t have to buy one of those $100 iPad styluses either. I got one that was $26 and it writes perfectly. The picture quality is great if you want to watch movies or read an article/blog.”
We’re not sure how long this deal will last, so grab it while it’s still a steal!
