Valentine’s Day is approaching, and for those looking through tablet deals to find a gift for the occasion, you might also want to check out the available iPad deals. One of the nice offers from Amazon is for the 32GB model of the latest version of the 10.2-inch iPad, which is on sale with a $30 discount to bring the Apple tablet down to its lowest-ever price of $299, from its original price of $329, just a few months after it was released.
The 8th-generation iPad, which was released in September 2020, features a 10.2-inch Retina display and stereo system, which makes it a portable home theater. The tablet is powered by Apple’s A12 Bionic chip, for smoother performance when you’re launching apps, playing games, browsing the internet, and switching between these tasks. Its battery life, however, remains dependable. Apple promises up to 10 hours of surfing the web via Wi-Fi or watching video, but a single charge can last for days with normal usage.
The latest 10.2-inch iPad serves as a portal to Apple’s iPadOS 14, which introduces many new features such as stackable widgets, sidebars, and pull-down menus in iPadOS-native apps like Photos and Notes, Universal Search, enhanced voice memos, and Scribble for Apple Pencil owners. With Scribble, writing within any text field is converted into digital text, allowing you to skip the keyboard.
When comparing the 2020 iPad and 2019 iPad, the faster processor of the latest version of the tablet makes all the difference, enabling improved handling of apps and multitasking. Meanwhile, when comparing the 2020 iPad and iPad Mini 5, the advantages of the 8th-generation iPad are its better performance and longer battery life.
If you’re buying a tablet for your significant other this Valentine’s Day, the 8th-generation iPad is a solid choice with its latest features and updated specifications. Amazon is selling the 32GB model at its lowest-ever price of $299, after a $30 discount to its original price of $329, even if Apple just released the tablet a few months ago. There’s no telling how long the offer will last though, so if you’re sold on the latest 10.2-inch iPad as a Valentine’s Day gift, you should click on that Buy Now button as soon as you can.
