TL;DR: Apple’s 7th generation 10.2-inch iPad was just released on Sept. 10, but Amazon already put the 128 GB WiFi model on sale for $399.99 at Amazon — saving you $29.01 on your pre-order.
What you may not have heard is that the new iPad, which has only been available for pre-order for a few days, is already on sale at Amazon (because Amazon has absolutely no chill). Though it’s only a $30 discount, $399.99 sounds much nicer than the $429.99 that Apple’s site is offering. Plus, that $30 can be put toward the or first gen Apple Pencil — two of the sweet upgrades for the new iPad.
Aside from an obvious increase in size, the 7th generation iPad looks identical to its older 9.7-inch sibling. But the best part comes in the form of the interior updates: A new A10 Fusion Chip brings up to double the power of a Windows PC4 (so says Apple), and support of the new iPadOS means multitasking and a smoother, laptop-like experience when using the keyboard.
The 10.2-inch model comes in black, space grey, and rose gold, and the enclosure is made out of recycled aluminum.
