Apple's affordable 2020 iPad has only been on the market since last September but it has seen a few discounts since then. If you missed out on previous iPad 8th-gen deals, now's your chance to score one for its lowest price yet via Amazon.
Over there, the entry-level 32GB model is down to $299, a $30 discount on its retail price. Shipping timeframes are already extending, so don't wait to get your order in if you want one.
Like the 7th-gen model that came before it, the most-recent iPad has a gorgeous 10.2-inch Retina display with a 2160-by-1620 pixel resolution. You'll also get a Touch ID fingerprint sensor for security plus an 8MP 1080p camera on the back with a 1.2MP 720p camera on the front. The display supports the first-gen Apple Pencil as well as the Smart Keyboard.
The main upgrade to the affordable iPad is the upgraded to the A12 Bionic chip, making it a pretty decent upgrade over the 7th- generation iPad it's replacing. Though not as powerful as the A14 in the new iPad Air, the A12 chip will ensure the entry-level iPad is super speedy and able to keep up with most work you'll want to do.
According to Apple, the A12 Bionic will make the iPad two times faster than the top-selling Windows laptop, three times faster than the top-selling Android tablet, and six times faster than the top-selling Chromebook.
