The basic, 10.2-inch iPad didn’t receive a design overhaul like its Mini cousin, but it does serve up a faster processor, a better front-facing camera and an improved display than the previous, eighth-gen iPad. The biggest addition, however, is the storage increasing from 32GB to 64GB on the baseline $329 model and from 128GB to 256GB on the step-up $479 model. Other than the storage doubling, the change you’ll most likely welcome in this age of FaceTime and Zoom calls is the front camera going from 1.2 megapixels to a wider-angle 12 megapixels. It’s also added Center Stage to keep your mug in the frame during video calls. Amazon’s $30 discount from a few weeks ago is gone, and we don’t see any price breaks from other retailers at the moment for the new, ninth-gen iPad.
The iPad Mini received a complete overhaul. The new design has rounded edges, thin bezels and no home button. The power button on the side now has Touch ID, and the Lightning port has been replaced by a USB-C charging port. It runs on the new A15 Bionic chip (same as the iPhone 13) and serves up an improved and slightly larger 8.3-inch display and better cameras from the old, fifth-gen Mini. Without any discounts currently available, Apple is the best place to go for the new iPad Mini. (Hey, free engraving.)
Apple’s 10.9-inch iPad Air with 64GB of storage in silver is $60 off at Amazon in either spacey gray or blue, which is down from the $99 discount offered last month. For most people, a 64GB drive is skimpy and will fill up fast; the 256GB model is selling for $650 on Amazon in silver, space gray and rose gold — there’s an initial $50 discount plus an additional $49 in savings at checkout.
