This morning I was shopping for a new iPad (my 2014 model is at the end of its usable life) when I found that Amazon is having a great sale on current generation iPads. As I
write update this (9:13pm ET) you can buy a new current generation iPad for as little as $ 289 269! This is $60 less than the usual lowest price.
If you’ve been thinking about getting yourself a new iPad or buying one as a gift for someone in your life, I’d jump on this deal like I did this morning.
Why I upgraded my iPad
First, let me be clear that if I was in a different line of work I’d probably keep my 2014 model until one of my children breaks it. I’m cheap and clearly not the type of person who rushes out to get the latest Apple products. Even my phone that runs the latest version of Android was bought on the cheap (and I’ve been very happy with it).
Yes, my old iPad is still working. It still takes pictures and runs most of the apps that I need or want to use. The current generation iPads have a better camera and more storage in the base model than my 2014 model. But real reason that I’m upgrading is that the older version doesn’t support all of the latest augmented reality and virtual reality apps that I want to use. If you want to experience all of the latest in AR and VR apps and you don’t have a current iPad, now is a good time to get one at a $60 discount.
