Update May 7 at 2:31 p.m. ET: This deal expired, however, Amazon continues to offer iPad 10 for $349. Apple dropped it $349 permanently following its iPad launch event on Tuesday.

Well, that didn't take long. Following Apple's Let Loose event announcement last Tuesday, the iPad 10 dropped to its lowest price yet! Apple's May 7 launch event is expected to reveal new iPads which translates to price drops on previous models. If you refuse to pay full price for your next iPad, this sweet discount on the iPad 10 lets you skip the Apple tax.

Currently, the iPad 10 is on sale for $348 at PC Richard of all places. Typically $449, that's $101 off, and the iPad 10's lowest price to date. I track iPad deals all year round and this is one of the best I've seen so far. 

We gave the iPad 10 our hard-to-get Editor's Choice Award for good reason. It's powerful and snappy, has a beautiful display, and impressive speakers. Although we wish we could squeeze more battery life out of it, Apple Pencil support makes up for this shortcoming. 

As with all Apple deals, this one may not last too long, so I recommend you act now!

Review consensus: Apple’s 10th Gen iPad is a powerful tablet that excels in its performance, surpassing competitors in productivity-adjacent tasks. 

Laptop Mag: ★★★★ | Toms Guide: ★★★½ 

Buy it if: You want a capable tablet with optional stylus support for sketching, taking notes and marking up documents. The iPad 10 is ideal for consuming content, internet browsing, managing emails, checking socials, and light productivity.

Don't buy it if: If you want a tablet primarily for streaming content, reading, and playing mobile games or if you prefer Android. Consider Fire HD 10 for entertainment use or Samsung iPad 10 competitor, the  Galaxy Tab S9 FE with S Pen.
