Save $49 on Apple’s latest 10.2-inch iPad
After news dropped this past weekend that Apple won’t be holding one of its usual October keynote events and that we might not even see a refreshed entry-level iPad, Amazon is marking down the latest 10.2-inch iPad to one of the lowest prices yet. Starting at $280 in two colors for the Wi-Fi 64GB model, today’s offer is down from $329 in either case and marking the second-best discount to date. This comes within just $1 of the all-time low and is a rare chance to save. Also at Best Buy for the same price. Apple’s latest entry-level iPad is anything but, and now delivers its compelling suite of features for an even more compelling price.
The iPadOS experience is centered around the recent A13 Bionic chip that’s said to be 20% faster than its predecessor. As for how Apple is applying all that extra power, you’ll enjoy 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 and where they are in the shot. And with reports that there won’t be a formal October keynote event, Apple may not even be planning a refreshed model this year period.
