Whether you’re thinking of finally getting a tablet; They are a longtime PC or Android user who is curious about making a change to the operating system; Or you realize it’s time to replace your Apple unit that’s seen better days, there’s a lot we don’t want you to miss. Right now, Amazon is discounting the 2021 Apple 10.2-inch iPad to $389, down from its usual price of $479 — and those are Black Friday prices in March! But this offer is only good until midnight!
That’s $90 off! And the value is even greater when you consider that this model comes with 56GB of storage, while the previous model only offered 32GB for the same price.
Meanwhile, this iPad is also faster (thanks to an upgraded processor), equipped with a vastly improved front-facing camera, and is even better for participating in video calls. This camera, along with Apple’s Center Stage feature, automatically maintains focus on the subject (you) as you move around — and will expand even if someone else gets into the frame.
Not much has changed. The iPad still relies on Apple’s Lightning connector (instead of USB-C, which high-end models and the new iPad Mini embraced). It still uses the home button with Touch ID and it still has a somewhat chunky bezel along the top and bottom edges.
“I bought this iPad for the fourth and final grandchild, as we have for the last three grandchildren,” wrote one enthusiastic grandparent. “He enjoys it and checks us out every day. So, we like the best.”
Another wrote: “This affordable newer iPad is updated, smooth, and easy to navigate. What I was really going for when I learned that all data and apps from my iPhone 11 could be transferred to the iPad following easy-to-understand instructions. I did it and within 15 minutes.” Almost everything migrated from the iPhone to the new iPad. How cool? I’ve owned previous versions of the iPad but this one leaves them in the dust. It’s worth the upgrade for only $300. At.”
“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 satisfied customer. “One cost lasts me days. I didn’t have to buy one of those $100 iPad pens, either. I got one for $26 and it writes perfectly. The picture quality is great if you want to watch movies or read an article/blog.”
