Apple iPad 2022 in multiple colors

Apple revealed the latest version of the regular iPad back in October, with an updated design, faster hardware, and (finally) a USB Type-C port. Now it’s on sale for $399, a discount of $50.

The 10th-generation iPad is positioned as a budget model, with a cheaper price than the iPad Air or iPad Pro. You still get a 10.9-inch screen, Wi-Fi 6, a USB Type-C port (the previous model had Lightning), Touch ID on the power button, and a camera along the landscape edge. That last improvement means the camera is above the screen when the tablet is in landscape/laptop orientation.

10th Gen iPad (2022)

The latest iPad still uses the first-gen Apple Pencil, but it has an updated design and USB Type-C. It was on sale for $50 off at B&H Photo in November, and now the sale has arrived at other retail stores.

Apple went with the A14 Bionic for the chipset on this model, which is the same chip that powers the iPhone 12 series and fourth-generation iPad Air. That’s not quite as speedy as the M1 or M2 chips found in the latest high-end iPads and some Mac computers, but it’s still more than enough for web browsing, media streaming, and playing most iPad games.

The new generation was a $120 price increase from the 9th-generation iPad at launch, which is the main reason Apple is still selling the old model. With this sale, it’s a little closer to the previous model’s price.
