If you want more storage, Amazon also offers the latest 128GB iPad for $379.99 ($34 off). It's the second lowest price we've ever seen for this Apple tablet. It's back-ordered until December 24, however you can still buy it now at a discounted price.

Apple's 8th generation iPad is one of the best tablets to buy. 

The base model iPad in this deal packs a 10.2-inch (2160 x 1620-pixel) Retina display, an A12 Bionic CPU, and 32GB of storage. There's also an 8MP camera with 1080p at 30 fps video recording on board, complemented by a 1.2MP front camera. 

Powered by Apple's new A12 Bionic processor, the new iPad delivers 40% faster performance than the former-gen iPad's A10 chip. What's more, Apple's Neural Engine processing delivers twice the graphics power for immersive video streaming and gaming.

As for design, the new iPad retains the familiar thick bezel 10.2-inch display with Touch ID. It also features a Lightning connector instead of the USB-C port found on iPad Air and iPad Pro. At 1.1 pounds and 0.3-inches thick, the 2020 iPad's weight and thickness are identical to that of the previous-gen iPad. It's similar in size and heft to its competitors, the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus (1.1 pounds, 0.3 inches) and the Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite (1.1 pounds, 0.3 inches).
