Apple’s latest 10.2-inch iPad now up to $50 off at Amazon
Following ongoing discounts on two of the higher-end iPadOS experiences going live earlier this week, the savings have now arrived on the latest 10.2-inch iPad. Dropping at Amazon, you can score the 9th-generation iPad Wi-Fi 256GB for $429. Normally fetching $479, today’s offer amounts to $50 in savings while marking an Amazon all-time low. You can also score the 64GB model at $309, down from $329, to mark the second-best price of the year.
Sure this may be Apple’s entry-level iPad, but it still packs notable features like the new A13 Bionic chip that’s said to be 20% faster than its predecessor. That extra power enters in some additional features like True Tone support for the 10.2-inch screen alongside Center Stage in the new 12MP ultrawide camera that automatically adjusts the crop and zoom of your selfie camera depending on who is in the shot and where they are.
