This may or may not be a coincidence, but the 2021-released 10.2-inch iPad has received a super-rare discount just hours after the expected 2022 sequel leaked in. a bunch of seriously sketchy (literally) renders.
While the images mentioned didn’t really point to any major upgrades or a very radical redesign for the no doubt imminent 10th-generation iPad, Amazon apparently believes last year’s base iPad could use a small capital gain to maintain its large-scale appeal.
To our knowledge, this amazing new deal equates to the deepest price cut ever seen at a major US retailer on an iPad 10.2 (2021) model. The same price reduction was available for a very limited time just over two months ago, and something tells us that bargain hunters now need to act fast too.
It’s clearly no coincidence that the silver flavor is already listed by Amazon as “usually ships within 7 days”, although the ecommerce giant seems much better equipped to handle demand for the space gray color option… for now.
With $80 off the regular price of $479, Apple’s non-Pro, non-Air and non-mini Ninth-generation iPad with 256 gigabytes of internal storage could be the increasing threat of some of the best Android tablets out there, including often discounted alternatives such as: Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S7+ and… too many solid Lenovo mid-ranges to list here.
With an A13 Bionic processor under the hood, it’s certainly not the world’s most powerful tablet, but it’s probably productive, sharp, and generally well-balanced enough to seem like a good deal for hardcore (digital hoarding) Apple fans on a relatively tight budget.
