Get Your Hands on Apple’s 9th-gen iPad for Just $249

Apple’s 9th-gen iPad is on sale at a 24 percent discount from the MSRP of $329. This deal is close to the lowest price ever for the standard 10.2-inch tablet. The entry-level model comes with 64GB of storage, which is sufficient for loading up the tablet with streaming apps and games.

The 9th-gen iPad is considered the best budget-friendly Apple tablet, especially with this sale. It received a score of 86 and was praised for its improved camera for video calls, excellent battery life, and consumer-friendly price. The tablet also has a sharp screen and a 12MP camera.

However, compared to its pricier siblings, this tablet is not perfect. The hardware is a step down from the Air and Pro models in several aspects, and the design is a bit antiquated. Despite this, it is still considered the most wallet-friendly way into iPadOS.
