It’s a new year and you’re going to need fresh tools to accomplish all those goals for 2024. A new iPad is a great way to keep track of and produce lots of tasks, especially when touting a 22 percent discount. That’s right, the 10th-generation Apple iPad 64GB model is back down to its Black Friday all-time low of $349, dropping from $449. The $100 savings is available in the Silver, Blue and Pink versions, with the Yellow model available for $399. 

Apple’s 10th-gen iPad came on the scene at the end of 2022 with an entire new design — namely removing the home button, a 10.9-inch screen and moving Touch ID to the lock button. We gave it an 85 in our review thanks to those updates and additional features like an A14 Bionic chip. It’s an upgrade from the 9th-generation’s A13 model but still falls behind the M1 and M2 in the iPad Air and Pro. 
Notably, the 10th-gen iPad also introduced a landscape edge to its front-facing camera — the first instance of this across any model. This update is a big deal for anyone who uses their iPad to take video calls. The battery is solid as well, lasting 11 hours and 45 minutes while playing a movie from the iTunes store and nearly 10 hours when it (and an attached keyboard) were in work mode all day. Speaking of the keyboard, this model’s Magic Keyboard Folio comes in two pieces and is an improvement from the 9th-gen’s version. However, it’s not very stable for lap use and retails for a steep $250 — though it’s on sale right now for $219.
