Now just £289, this price is unlikely to last until the end of the month. It's also on sale at Currys as well. If you order today, you're unlikely to get it by Christmas but it should arrive soon after.
It’s got the same excellent A10 processor as the previous 9.7-inch version, but has more RAM tucked away under the hood. Even with 32GB capacity, you’ve still got plenty of headroom for all those great apps and streaming on iCloud.
It’s quite simply brilliant at the basics, and a great entry into the world of Apple tablets. This, coupled with a solid, premium build quality, means you can't really go wrong if you’re looking for that last-minute gift for a special somebody.
TechRadar's own Matt Swider gave the tablet a glowing appraisal in his iPad 10.2 review, highlighting the performance upgrade and great introductory price.
One thing to note is that although the new iPad has great accessories, the Smart Keyboard cover and Apple Pencil are sold separately. All this can add up quite quickly, but you can still have a great experience with the standalone package.
