The latest 2018 Apple iPad 9.7 that was launched before the summer from $329 has just gone on sale on Best Buy from $299, which is about 10% off in a back to school sale:
This is the newest iPad in 2018, and it is not going to be replaced before long into 2019 at earliest. The only remaining new iPads this year, are the iPad Pro models later this fall, at twice the price and then some.
But even the 9.7 iPad has digitizer support for the Apple Pencil these days, so the usability is all there. You can even use the Logitech Crayon on the screen.
Apple iPad 9.7 features the famous 2048 x 1536 retina display, powered by the A10 Fusion chip, with complete Wi-Fi coverage, 1.2MP front camera, 8MP rear camera, stereo speakers, with a 10 hour battery life, a thickness of 7.5mm and a weight of 469.
