Wait, what? The latest 8th-generation Apple iPad is discounted?
Yes, dear ones, your eyes do not deceive you. Although it was released in late 2020, the latest Apple iPad (in Space Gray) is currently on sale. Amazon just slashed $30 off the price, bringing the beauty down from $329 to a cool $299. It's the cheapest we’ve ever seen this extremely popular Apple iPad model. In fact, it's so popular that it has earned a flawless five-star rating from more than 28,500 Amazon reviewers.
It's back in stock on April 12, but you can pre-order it now to lock in the sale price—Amazon will send you a notification once it's ready to ship.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
The latest iPad iteration (32GB/Wi-Fi model) has the same impressive 10.2-inch display, quick Touch ID fingerprint sensor and 3GB of memory as the last version, but it features a speedier processor. You’ll notice — and appreciate — the speed with any videos, web sites or games. (For the tech savvy, the speed comes from Apple’s A12 Bionic chip).
"I love it! It’s fast and easy to use plus it’s super affordable compared to the other models," wrote a satisfied Amazon shopper. "The display is beautiful and picture quality is great...It’s like I have a mini laptop everywhere I go. Perfect for students, the screen quality is amazing and the battery lasts all day long."
With up to 10 hours of battery life, the newest iPad works with the Apple Pencil and Apple Smart Keyboard (sold separately). So you’re all set for note-taking and sketching, if that’s your thing. It also has an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel ‘selfie’ camera for FaceTime. Who knew how much video-chatting we’d be doing in 2021? Camera quality matters!
"Love it! Quick on its feet, bright wonderful display, just an amazing product," shared a delighted five-star reviewer. "This is a full-size tablet. Nearly twice the size of a mini. Took less then a few minutes to transfer my apps and such from iCloud and my iPhone. Couldn’t wait to get in here and leave five stars!"
At its all-time lowest price ever, the Apple iPad, now $30 off, can bring a lift to a difficult year, delivering some fun the way we need it right now — lightning fast!
