This entry-level iPad just dropped to its Prime Day price: 'One charge lasts me days'

Updated ·2-min read

Whether you've been thinking about finally getting yourself a tablet; are a longtime PC or Android user curious about making an OS change; or have realized that it's time to replace your Apple unit that's seen better days, there's a great deal we don't want to miss. Right now, Amazon is discounting the 2021 Apple 10.2-inch iPad to $299, down from its $329 price tag! That's for the 64GB model. If you upgrade to the 256GB model, you can save $50 off the space gray colorway and scoop it up for $429 (was $499).

Now might be the best time to get that iPad you've been coveting.

That's not a huge discount, but it's something. And the value is even greater when you consider that this model comes with 64GB of storage, while its predecessor offered just 32GB for the same price.

Meanwhile, the new iPad is also faster (thanks to an upgraded processor) and equipped with a greatly improved front camera, the better to participate in video calls. That camera, coupled with Apple's Center Stage feature, automatically keeps the focus on the subject (you) as you move around — and it'll even widen out if someone else enters the frame.

Not much else has changed. The iPad still relies on Apple's Lightning connector (rather than USB-C, which higher-end models and the new iPad Mini have embraced). It still employs a home button with Touch ID and still has a fairly chunky bezel along the top and bottom edges.

"I’m enjoying my iPad very much. I haven’t had it very long but so far no problems. I came up from an iPad mini and I’m very happy with the size of this one. Arrived quickly and packaged excellently," wrote an enthusiastic shopper.

Another exclaimed: "Latest generation of iPad at a price less that most refurbished options. This replaces my old iPad Gen 2 version and it’s amazing how long the battery lasts. Runs all the latest apps too!"

"There is so many different things possible to use this device for. I got mine to start a digital planner and it works wonderfully," one more satisfied customer raved. "One charge lasts me days. I didn’t have to buy one of those $100 iPad pens either. I got one that was $26 and it writes perfectly. The picture quality is great if you want to watch movies or read an article/blog."

We're not sure how long this deal will last, so grab it while you can.
