The iPad 10 is on sale today with a huge $100 discount, and it’s perfect for the new USB-C Apple Pencil that launched late last year. Apple’s 10th-generation iPad was released on October 26, 2022, but it’s still one of the newest iPads in Apple’s tablet lineup. It’s also a substantial upgrade compared to the previous-generation model, thanks to a big redesign and the updated A14 Bionic chip.
The 64GB version of Apple’s 10.9-inch iPad typically costs $449, but it’s currently on sale for just $349 at both Amazon and Best Buy. Of note, that’s the lowest price ever for this model. You can also save $100 on the 256GB model if you need more storage. Or, if you want to spend even less money, the previous-generation 10.2-inch iPad 9th-Gen is also on sale starting at just $249.
There are several things that make the new iPad 10th-Gen tablet a solid upgrade from its predecessor.
The first and most obvious update is the design of the new iPad 10. It has a slightly larger display than the 10.2-inch model, of course. But it also has smaller bezels because the home button underneath the screen has been removed.
You can still use Touch ID on the iPad 10th-Gen though, it has simply been moved to the power button on the edge of the tablet. This is a big deal for many Apple fans out there.
Yes, Face ID is great. I personally prefer it to Touch ID on my iPhone. But on an iPad, I’m not such a big fan. Sometimes, I just don’t hold the iPad in a position that works well for Face ID, and it takes a few tries to unlock it.
That’s not a great user experience at all. Meanwhile, Touch ID works every single time for me, without fail.
Apple’s 10.9-inch iPad also features the powerful A14 Bionic chipset in place of the A13 chip in the 9th-gen iPad. You get big speed gains as well as better battery life and more. Also of note, it’s the cheapest iPad you can get that will work perfectly with the new USB-C Apple Pencil (currently $10 off). The only less expensive iPad is the 9th-gen model, but it has a Lightning port instead of a USB-C connector.
The 10.9-inch iPad typically starts at $449, which is a big price increase compared to the older iPad. Right now, however, Amazon’s iPad 10 deals start at $349 at both Amazon and Best Buy. You can also upgrade to the 10.9-inch iPad with 256GB for $499 instead of $599.
As I mentioned, however, the previous-generation iPad model is also on sale. It’s still in Apple’s lineup since the iPad 10th-Gen is so much more expensive. And right now, the iPad 9th-Gen is up to $100 off.
Or, if you want to spend as little as possible, you can opt for the base model with 64GB of storage. The 64GB iPad 9 retails for $329, but it’s currently on sale for $249 for the entry-level model or $379 for the 256GB version.
That’s a nice big discount, and it matches this model’s lowest price since the holidays last year.
