Apple revealed the new iPad 10.2 and new iPad Mini at its California Streaming event, where it also unveiled the different models of the iPhone 13, the Apple Watch Series 7, and Apple Fitness+. Pre-orders for the new iPad models have started, not just from Apple itself but also from other channels.
They might not be counted as Apple deals or iPad deals because there are no discounts, but for shoppers who are very comfortable shopping from home through Amazon, you can now pre-order the 9th-generation iPad and 6th-generation iPad Mini from the retailer. The Wi-Fi, 64GB version of the new iPad 10.2 is available for $329, while the Wi-Fi 64GB version of the new iPad Mini may be pre-ordered for $499, with deliveries of both tablets starting September 24.

The 9th-generation iPad features a 10.2-inch Retina display with True Tone technology that automatically adjusts the screen’s colors and intensity depending on ambient light.

The new operating system will feature improvements to multitasking, widgets in apps, and Quick Notes, which will let you jot down anything in a pop-up window. There’s also the Translate app, which can translate words between languages in real time.
The enclosure of the new iPad 10.2 is made entirely out of recycled aluminum, while color options include space gray and silver. The tablet also features an 8MP Wide rear camera and a 12MP Ultra Wide front camera, with Center Stage technology that uses machine learning to make adjustments during FaceTime video calls.

Deals are scarce, but considering that the 4th-gen iPad Air has a faster CPU than the Pro, it’s a good value even at its regular price. You can grab this one for the same price as the 256GB model.
