Apple’s 2022 iPad is $30 off right now


If you weren’t able to grab Apple’s 2022 iPad on Black Friday, don’t worry: It’s on sale right now for an even cheaper price. You can get the blue and the silver variants of the 64GB WiFi-only iPad right now for only $419 on Amazon, which is $30 less than retail. The yellow version of the tablet isn’t quite that cheap, but you can still get it for the device’s Black Friday price of $426. Those aren’t quite all-time lows for the 10th-gen iPad, but you’re not constricted by a time limit or by the need for a Prime subscription this time.

Apple gave the 2022 iPad a redesign to set it apart from its previous base tablets and bring its looks closer to the iPad Air and the iPad Pro. The tech giant removed the Home button and moved its Touch ID to the lock button. Its bezels are thinner, its display is bigger and its front-facing camera has been moved to the landscape border. Another big change is that the device now comes with a USB-C charging port instead of a Lightning port like previous models.

The tablet is powered by an A14 Bionic chip, and while it’s a modest upgrade from last year’s A13, it does improve the device’s performance. When we reviewed the device, we also found that its battery life met or exceeded the 10-hour estimate Apple provides for every iPad: It lasted 11 hours and 45 minutes when we used it to play movies purchased from the iTunes Store.

It’s unclear when the tablet’s price will go back to retail, but this is a great chance to purchase one for the coming holiday season either for yourself or as a gift.
