It’s more than a month until Black Friday, but preparations are surely already underway among both retailers and customers. However, if you are hoping to snag a great deal on an iPad, you don’t have to wait until November 27. The eighth-generation iPad, which was released just last month, is already offered with a discount in a rare deal on Amazon, taking $30 off the tablet’s price to bring it down to $299 from $329.
The eighth-generation iPad features a 10.2-inch Retina display with superb clarity and striking colors, for a better view of the shows you are watching or the documents you are reading. As an office tool, the tablet can keep up with multiple tasks at a time because it is powered by Apple’s A12 Bionic chip, which combined with the large screen will allow you to get a lot of work done in a short amount of time. It also supports the first-generation Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard, which will provide you with more input options for what you are doing on the iPad.
Further expanding the capabilities of the latest iPad is iPadOS 14, the latest version of Apple’s operating system for its tablets. The update introduces stackable widgets to customize your home screen, enhanced sidebars in native apps for quicker navigation, the new Universal Search, and additional privacy and security features.
Another major characteristic of the eighth-generation iPad is its amazing battery life. Apple promises up to 10 hours on a single charge, but the tablet can last for days without requiring you to plug it in. The tablet still uses the Lightning cable though, unlike most of the current Pad models that have already moved on to using USB-C cables.
The eighth-generation iPad continues Apple’s legacy in the tablet space, and it doesn’t disappoint. The device is one of the most popular purchases every Black Friday, but if you want to purchase it now, it is currently offered on Amazon with a $30 discount that reduces its price to $299 from $329. There’s no indication on how long the deal will last, so if you need an iPad, don’t hesitate to click on that Buy Now button.
