A $30 price cut on the latest technology is always great to see and that’s certainly the case with the latest Apple iPad 10.2.

That’s everything you need to get started within the Apple ecosystem with the tablet being ideal for both productivity tasks or relaxing with Netflix or Apple Arcade. Things get better with an 8MP back camera and 1.2MP FaceTime HD front camera — both of which proving useful during daily use or when you have an important video conferencing call to take.

Apple iPad is at its cheapest-ever price before Prime Day 2023
The iPad 10.2 on a table.

Amazon is currently offering some great iPad deals including being able to buy the Apple iPad (9th generation) for $250. It's currently showing as $279, reduced from $329, but add it to your basket and it gets even cheaper with $29 off at checkout bringing it down to just $250. That's $20 cheaper than it even managed during Black Friday although it was the same price back in March. It's unlikely that it'll be even cheaper during the Prime Day deals next month, although it could happen. That's why we suggest buying it now and choosing the longest shipping method so the return window spans all of Prime Day so you can return it if it somehow gets even cheaper. All you have to do is return it in its original condition for a full refund or replacement within 15 days of receipt. Want to know more about the iPad (9th generation) before you buy? Here's what to know.

Why you should buy the Apple iPad (9th generation)
The Apple iPad (9th generation) might be aging technology but thanks to Apple supporting its products for longer than most, it's still ideal if you want one of the best tablets but need to keep costs down. It's powered by the A13 Bionic chip which remains pretty reliable thanks to the App Store offering so many thousands of apps and games. A gorgeous-looking 10.2-inch Retina display gives you plenty of room to see what you're doing and it makes everything look great compared to other tablets in this price range.

Shopping for an iPad 10.2? You need to know about this deal
The iPad 10.2 on a table.

With the 2022 Apple iPad in the market, you're correct in thinking that you can get the 2021 Apple iPad with a 10.2-inch screen for cheaper than usual. For example, Amazon has slashed the price of the tablet's Wi-Fi, 64GB model to a very affordable $270, for $59 in savings from its original price of $329. Among all the tablet deals online, this offer is among the ones that provide the best value for your money, but you'll need to act fast and complete your purchase as soon as possible because we're not sure when it will expire.

Why you should buy the Apple iPad 10.2
The 10th-generation Apple iPad is already available, but the 9th-generation Apple iPad has certain advantages on top of its lower price. In our 2022 Apple iPad versus 2021 Apple iPad comparison, you may want to go for the 9th-generation Apple iPad if the thicker bezels appeal to you for browsing, and if you've invested in multiple Lightning cables as the 10th-generation iPad uses a USB-C port for charging. Both tablets may be upgraded to iPadOS 16, so you won't be missing out on the newest version of Apple's operating system for its tablets.
