In our iPad 2021 review, we were impressed by this tablet in almost every aspect. There aren't a lot of flaws on this device to speak of — its design looks a little outdated compared to newer tablets like the iPad 2022, and typing on the optional Smart Keyboard accessory isn't the most comfortable experience. Still, all in all this is still an awesome value tablet.

Running on the A13 Bionic chip, the 9th-gen iPad has excellent performance. Power users should opt for the iPad Pro 2022 with its M2 chip, but if you just want a tablet for browsing, streaming movies and playing a few games, the iPad 2021 is all you need.

Taking a lot of video calls? The 12MP cameras in the 2021 iPad will ensure you always look sharp. And thanks to Center Stage, your face will stay in frame even if you move around the room.

The iPad 2021 was already a great-value tablet at full price, so we can't recommend it enough now that it has fallen to this price. Looking for more options? Check out the best Presidents Day Apple sales available right now, or see our Presidents Day sales page for sales across all categories.
