It’s not often that you hear the words “super low price” and “Apple” in the same sentence, but in the case of this iPad, it’s true.

A few months ago, Apple re-designed the new iPad with a larger display and more memory. And right now, it's on sale for just $249, or $80 off its list price at Amazon.

So what’s new? The latest Apple iPad (Silver/32GB/Wi-Fi) comes equipped with a bigger 10.2-inch Retina Display, Touch ID fingerprint sensor for quicker unlock and 3GB of memory, compared to last year’s 9.7-inch non-Retina Display, no Touch ID and only 2GB of memory.

Armed with up to 10 hours of battery life, the new iPad is also made for productivity with support for the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard (sold separately), so you can use the tablet for sketching and note-taking too. In addition, it features an 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.2-megapixel “selfie” camera for FaceTime video chatting.

The latest Apple iPad is positioned to be a favorite for 2020, especially at this low price point.

Here’s what shoppers are saying about the new Apple iPad:

“This iPad is hands down the best tablet that you can buy at this price point,” wrote a five-star Amazon reviewer. “While the iPad Pro does offer more power and functionality, I think most people don’t necessarily need all of that. Personally, I use this for every day tasks (browsing, writing, shopping, streaming etc) and this iPad can handle all of those functions with zero problems. I especially like that Apple has given the base model iPad keyboard, pen, and even mouse functionality, thus making the tablet that much more useful.”

Another satisfied shopper added, “The iPad is simply the best-in-class tablet device. The screen is beautiful, it is crazy fast, and the apps are excellent. Since I store my files on iCloud, integration is seamless: documents that I annotate appear on my computer within seconds after changing them. So it is not a laptop replacement for me, but I used it almost as much as I use my laptop.”
