Amazon gives you the opportunity to buy some of Apple’s latest iPad models at a discount before the end of the year. Both the WiFi version and the mobile version of the base iPad released just this September are now selling at the lowest prices we’ve seen for the devices on the website. You can get it 256 GB WiFi model for $ 449, which is $ 30 lower than its original retail price of $ 479. If you want a tablet with mobile data, you can instead buy an iPad 2021 with WiFi and a mobile network for $ 580 – that’s $ 29 less than the original price of the $ 609 device.
A 64 GB tablet model is also available. You can take the WiFi-only variant with less storage for $ 320. While the device isn’t exactly discounted, that’s another $ 9 for a tablet you may have planned to purchase. 64 GB 2021 iPad with WiFi and mobile network connections will now cost you $ 449 on Amazon, which is $ 10 less than it will cost you in the Apple Store itself.
We gave the base iPad 2021 a rating of 86 in ours review, where we praised it for being affordable, has now become even more so with these offers. While it doesn’t come with a major redesign, it has twice as much storage space as its predecessors. We felt that his A13 Bionic was powerful enough for standard multi-tasking uses, such as browsing the web, playing games, or watching videos, without lagging behind or displaying any significant issues. The device also has a new 12-megapixel front camera that is identical to the one found on the more expensive iPad mini.
Speaking of the iPad mini, its 64GB mobile model is also at an all-time low of $ 629. That’s $ 20 less than the retail price of the device, so maybe it’s time to take it if you’re thinking of a smaller tablet for your needs. We praised iPad mini 2021 in our review due to its significant redesign, including the front of the entire screen, the top button with TouchID capability, support for second-generation Apple Pencil, and USB-C charging capability.
