Thinking about grabbing a new tablet? The iPad 2021 is an excellent candidate. It's a competent, dependable tablet that doesn't cost a fortune. This tablet is so popular that it's rarely in stock, let alone on sale. So we recommend taking advantage of this deal quickly before it's gone.

Compared to the previous model, the 2021 iPad is a major upgrade. It's got twice the amount of storage, a powerful new CPU that gives a big boost in performance, and a brilliant new camera. 

The front camera of the 2021 iPad has made a huge leap from 1.2MP to 12MP, meaning your selfies and videos will look super crisp. The camera also now has Center Stage support. This feature uses machine learning to track your face and keep you in frame if you move around during video calls. 

As well as the new features, the iPad still has a sharp display and a great battery life (lasting around 12 hours in our tests.) All in all, this is one of the Amazon deals around, so don't let it pass you by.
