Wait, what? The brand new 2020 8th-generation Apple iPad is already discounted?

Yes, dear ones, your eyes do not deceive you. Although it was just released this in September, the newest Apple iPad is currently on sale. Amazon has slashed $30 off the price, bringing it down from $329 to $299 in Space Gray, Silver or Gold. In fact, this is the cheapest we’ve ever seen this Apple iPad.

Don’t know about you, but we’re getting a head start on holiday shopping right now, what with still being at home and having a little too much time on our hands. So we’re jumping on this sale for gifts.

This latest iPad iteration (32GB/Wi-Fi model) has the same impressive 10.2-inch display, quick Touch ID fingerprint sensor and 3GB of memory as the last version, but it features a speedier processor. You’ll notice—and appreciate—the speed with any videos, web sites or games. (For the tech savvy playing from home, the speed comes from Apple’s A12 Bionic chip).

“I love it! It’s fast and easy to use plus it’s super affordable compared to the other models,” wrote a satisfied Amazon shopper. “The display is beautiful and picture quality is great...It’s working great, the multitasking is amazing and it’s like I have a mini laptop everywhere I go. Perfect for students, the screen quality is amazing and the battery lasts all day long.”

With up to 10 hours of battery life, the newest iPad works with the Apple Pencil and Apple Smart Keyboard (sold separately). So you’re all set for note-taking and sketching, if that’s your thing. It also has an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel ‘selfie’ camera for FaceTime. Who knew how much video-chatting we’d be doing in 2020? Camera quality matters!

“Love it! Quick on it’s feet, bright wonderful display, just an amazing product,” shared a delighted five-star reviewer. “This is a full size tablet. Nearly twice the size of a mini. Took less then a few minutes to transfer my apps, and such from iCloud and my iPhone. Couldn’t wait to get in here and leave five stars!”

For you or for your family, the 2020 Apple iPad, now $30 off, can bring a lift to a difficult year, delivering some fun the way we need it right now—lightning fast.
