Apple took off its all-new 10.2-inch iPad just last week, but Amazon already offers a discount on it. Right now, if you place a pre-order for the 128 GB Wi-Fi-only model, you will lock up on its retail price a $29 savings that will take it down to less than $400. The deal currently applies to all three colors— space gray, gold, and silver— though there’s no word about how long it’s going to stick around so you’d better get your order at that price while you’re still able to.
The updated entry-level iPad, unveiled at Apple’s September media event, had its screen size boosted from 9.7 inches to 10.2 inches, replacing the sixth-generation iPad. It maintains the A10 Fusion system-on-a-chip and first-gen Apple Pencil support but gains a Smart Connector for use with the Smart Keyboard.
There’s no indication exactly how long this discount will last, but if you pre-order it at this price, you’re not going to pay for it anymore, even if its price rises. You’ll also benefit from that price drop in the unlikely even that it drops below. On September 30 the iPad is scheduled to ship. Now is the perfect time to upgrade your iPad as it is set to release the new version of iPadOS at the end of the month, offering a more optimized operating system for iPad models that will unlock new features, a new look for your home screen, and more.
