After seeing the new iPad mini go live with a launch discount earlier in the week, those planning to score the just-announced entry-level iPad can now also save. Amazon is now offering the 9th-generation 10.2-inch iPad Wi-Fi 64GB in both Space Gray and Silver for $299 shipped. Also at Walmart. Normally fetching $329, you’re looking at the best discount yet and a rare chance to pick up Apple’s latest without having to pay full price.
The newest entry to the entry-level iPad lineup arrives with much of the same form-factor as before, just with some notable improvements. For starters, there is a new A13 Bionic chip at the center of the experience which is said to be 20% faster than its predecessor. That extra power enters in some 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. Get a closer look in our launch coverage and then head below for more.
