Lowest Price

Our favorite overall tablet combines value and performance for nearly any task, and right now it’s seeing its lowest price yet. 

In a hands-on review, our editor noted how the 10.2-inch ninth-gen iPad mixes performance and value in a way that no other tablet can, plus it seamlessly connects with core iPad accessories. Jumping from an A12 Bionic to an A13 Bionic chip, this iPad is a future-proofed investment, meaning it guarantees a longer shelf life compared to previous generations.

Whether you go for the baseline 64GB and Wi-Fi or prefer the addition of cellular and 256GB, you’ll find new low prices on your preferred configuration.

Unless you need a tablet for intense jobs like design or video editing — tasks better reserved for an iPad Pro — or you would prefer the colorful design of the 10th-gen model, we think the ninth gen is a fantastic option. Now is the best time to snag this essential tablet, seeing the lowest price we’ve seen.
