The latest generation iPad returns to Black Friday pricing: $ 250


Black Friday missed? No problem, the iPad 2018 is again available at the same price.

About eight months later, you will hear me say my usual rhetoric before Black Friday: "Every day is Black Friday!" Because here we are at the end of February, and suddenly you can buy an iPad at the same price as at the end of November.

In fact, for a limited time and while supplies last, Amazon has shipped the current generation iPad 9.7 (Wi-Fi, 32GB) for $ 249.99 . It is available in silver and space gray at this price. The rose gold model leads you to $ 279.99. Normal price for everyone: $ 329.

See on Amazon

I will not lie: I think the iPad is the best tablet, period. Sure, there are far cheaper options – the Amazon Fire HD 8 is again available for only $ 60 compared to its regular $ 80.

But this iPad is bigger and faster, with much better cameras and more apps to choose from, an ad-free user experience and other benefits. And while this version of the iPad is almost approaching its 12-year anniversary – an updated model could always look over the horizon – the rumors and reports that swirl around a potential Apple event in late March suggest that it won No new hardware. At $ 250, this 2018 iPad also does not feel overpriced. (Remember, not so long ago you could not buy an iPad for less than $ 500.)

So, if you've missed the Black Friday offerings, remember what I always say: For those who wait, come cheap things. In that case, they will come back.
