Amazon today is offering the first chance in months to save on Apple’s entry-level 10.2-inch iPad and its companion Smart Keyboard Folio. First up though is that affordable iPadOS machine itself, which drops the Wi-Fi 64GB model down to $249.99 shipped with the price dropping at checkout. Typically fetching $329, you’re looking at the second-best price of the year at $59 off. It comes within $20 of the all-time low from back in February and has gone for $1 less in the past, too. There’s also the elevated 256GB model, which gets in on the savings at $399, down from the usual $479 price tag to deliver another notable back to school upgrade.
While not the latest model to hit the iPadOS lineup, the 10.2-inch model on sale today is still the most affordable option on shelves right now and comes powered by the A13 Bionic chip that’s said to be 20% faster than its predecessor. As for how Apple is applying all that extra power, you’ll enjoy additional features like True Tone support for the 10.2-inch screen alongside Center Stage in the new 12MP ultrawide camera that automatically adjusts the crop and zoom of your selfie camera depending on who and where they are in the shot. Even with the elevated capacity, this is still below what you’ll pay for other iPads right now, unless you can live with 64GB of storage on the baseline 10.2-inch model at $249.99.
