As you'll see in our iPad 10.2 review, this is the best tablet for those on a budget. You get a bright and vibrant 10.2-inch display, an improved front camera with 12MP resolution, and a speedy A13 Bionic chip that puts most Android tablets to shame. 

Another plus is the long battery life. In our web surfing test, the iPad 10.2 lasted an epic 11 hours and 59 minutes, so you should be able to use this slate for most of the day without having to recharge. 

The front 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. 

The iPad isn't perfect. The bezels are relatively large, and you don't get support for the 2nd gen Apple Pencil or Magic Keyboard. But the iPad 10.2 does support the first gen $99 Apple Pencil and $159 Smart keyboard to make this tablet more versatile.

Overall, this is the best iPad value that just got even better. Be sure to check out our Prime Day deals live blog for all the best sales.
