iPads are wonderful little machines. Big enough to get cozy with but still small enough to travel around, they are the best tablets on the market and fill the gap between a smartphone and a laptop. If you’re looking to finally get yourself a tablet, the 9th generation iPad is $80 off on Amazon right now.
Available for just $249 and can be delivered in just a few days, this is the best-ever price we’ve seen on the 9th-generation iPad and it’s still a very capable machine. Though Black Friday is just a few short weeks away on November 24, we can’t imagine this price being beaten any time soon.
Cheap and Cheerful
Though you could opt to spend a few hundred bucks more to get the M1 iPad Air, this price makes for an excellent entryway into Apple’s tablet family. The A13 Bionic chip still performs admirably, being fast and smooth enough to run all modern apps. As well as this, the retina display can show vivid colors and darker blacks with no problem.
The iPad ninth-generation has Touch ID, so you can securely use Apple Pay and unlock your device in seconds. There are also two color options available at this price, so you can choose between Silver and Grey depending on your preference. You can pick up this iPad, a case, and a screen protector for less than half of the M1 iPad Air, an absolute steal that likely won’t last long.
This is a particularly good choice for anyone on a budget or unsure about putting down $1000 to get the latest and greatest iPad Pro model.

James is a staff writer and general Jack of all trades at iMore. With news, features, reviews, and guides under his belt, he has always liked Apple for its unique branding and distinctive style. Originally buying a Macbook for music and video production, he has since gone on to join the Apple ecosystem with as many devices as he can fit on his person.
With a degree in Law and Media and being a little too young to move onto the next step of his law career, James started writing from his bedroom about games, movies, tech, and anything else he could think of. Within months, this turned into a fully-fledged career as a freelance journalist. Before joining iMore, he was a staff writer at Gfinity and saw himself published at sites like TechRadar, NME, and Eurogamer.
As his extensive portfolio implies, James was predominantly a games journalist before joining iMore and brings with him a unique perspective on Apple itself. When not working, he is trying to catch up with the movies and albums of the year, as well as finally finishing the Yakuza series. If you like Midwest emo music or pretentious indie games that will make you cry, he’ll talk your ear off.
This is the one I have. It's pretty nice, and well worth the sale price of $249.Reply
