They say Apple is gearing up to replace the spring 2018-released iPad 9.7 with a mysterious 10.2-incher, which obviously means now’s actually a perfect time to purchase the latest non-Pro, non-Air variant of the world’s most popular tablet.
Of course, Amazon Prime members either seized or missed their chance to get the 9.7-incher at a massive $130 discount in a Wi-Fi-only 128GB configuration during the recent 48-hour deal extravaganza. If you’re part of the latter category or simply chose to sit Prime Day out for some reason, you might want to visit a local Best Buy store or the retailer’s official website, where the standard iPad (2018) is on sale yet again with no special requirements or strings attached.
The best part about this fresh batch of discounts is they cover every single 9.7-inch iPad model, starting from the entry-level 32GB config with no LTE support and ending with cellular-enabled 128 gig units. The cheapest slates are currently fetching a measly $249.99 after a cool $80 markdown, while the heftiest savings (of 100 bucks) can be had on 128GB storage variants with or without LTE connectivity.
That means the most expensive iPad (2018) models are $460 a pop right now, with $380 enough to buy you a cellular-capable 9.7-inch slate accommodating 32 gigs of data, and finally, the Wi-Fi-only 128GB version costing $330 at the time of this writing. Although we’ve seen the tablet marked down even lower in the past at various major US retailers, these are arguably the best deals you can get right now on a well-reviewed gadget that hasn’t aged so poorly. Granted, the 10.5-inch iPad Air (2019) is significantly better in more ways than one, but it’s also substantially pricier.
