If you anticipated that online sales of Apple products would cease after the holiday season, you were incorrect (though not as incorrect as Apple’s forecast). Yes, Amazon is still offering a $49 discount on the iPad 2018 (opens in a new tab) at $279, even though the holiday season has passed.
The 128GB iPad is also on sale (opens in a new tab) for $354, representing a savings of $74. This pricing primarily applies to Wi-Fi-only iPads, but the silver 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad (opens in a new tab) is currently discounted by $60 to $499.
While many are discussing Apple’s iPad Pro (which is currently embroiled in a controversy over bending), you would be foolish to overlook this much more affordable tablet. Not only is it compatible with the original Apple Pencil, which is $30 less expensive than its successor, but its speed makes it the best slate for augmented reality applications.
In our review, we mentioned that the screen is brighter and more colorful than those of the Amazon Fire HD 10 and the Lenovo Tab 4.
