If you're in the market for a new iPad and don't want to spend a fortune, Apple's entry-level 8th-generation iPad is for you. It is the latest affordable model in Apple's tablet lineup, launching alongside the mid-range 2020 iPad Air, and you can order it right now at a discount.
Like the 7th-generation model before it, the 8th-gen iPad is the gateway product to the iPad platform with prices starting at just $329. Despite its low cost, the device is no slouch.

You can save even more on larger capacity models of the new 8th-gen iPad at Amazon and elsewhere. The 128GB model is $34 off in a few colorways
Apple's 2020 iPad makes the jump to the A12 processor, up from the A10 in the last model, which will help it keep apace with other products in Apple's lineup and add support for future iPadOS updates. The design has remained similar to the previous-gen model — no iPad Pro-style redesign here like in the new iPad Air — so you still have the traditional chin-and-forehead design and a Touch ID Home button for security.
Though it is missing features of the more advanced iPad models, like USB-C or Face ID, the entry-level iPad is still a very capable tablet for most people. Its familiar design will also be a boon for novice users.
The new iPad has been on the market for a few months now so deals are becoming a bit more frequent meaning there's usually a saving to be found on one if you know where to look.
