Apple products are, for many, considered the cream of the crop of handheld tech. Whether it’s cell phones, smartwatches, computers or tablets, the technology juggernaut has the game on lock.

While the brand has garnered a reputation for its premium quality, it’s also notorious for its steep prices across the board. However, thanks to the folks at Amazon, the latest model of Apple’s standard iPad is currently — and uncharacteristically — on sale!

Labeled an Amazon No.1 best seller, this super-thin tablet is the newest addition to the iPad family, released on September 30, 2019. Currently, it is on sale for $50 off its initial retail price.

It boasts a 10.2-inch retina display and includes some of the features that many Apple users love about the brand’s products, including the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, Apple Pencil and smart keyboard compatibilities.

The device also features an 8MP back camera and a 1.2MP FaceTime HD front-facing camera. According to the product’s description, one single charge is also said to perform “up to 10 hours of battery life.”

When compared to other products in the iPad family (the Air and Pro models), this option is the most affordable, differing in price from the others by hundreds of dollars. It also comes in at $114 cheaper than the iPad Mini, despite the New Apple iPad boasting a display that is 2.3 inches larger.

Also, with more than 16,000 reviews and an overall customer rating of 4.8 stars, it’s safe to say that it’s a hot item.

One shopper dubbed it “one of the best iPads under $350” before praising the device for its “price tag and battery life.”

Another shopper added that he “upgraded” to this from the more expensive iPad Mini 3 and is “extremely happy” with the purchase. “It’s ‘out-of-the-box’ beautiful and amazing,” he added.

Several shoppers echoed the sentiment that this is a bargain for an iPad, with one particularly writing, “Terrific bang for the buck! … Fantastic iPad for the price. Easy to sync data from iPhone and other iPads as well.”

While reviewers seemed to rarely express any major cons for this particular device, one that was mentioned is that the front-facing camera pales in comparison to the rear. However, one of the shoppers who noted this minor gripe stressed, “Everything else is just amazing.”
