[Yesterday], Apple revealed a new iPad, one with a 10.2-inch display to replace the previous most-popular model, the original 9.7-inch display-toting iPad. Since the change was made, Apple’s given an update to their official Apple Store “Certified Refurbished” collection of devices. Since yesterday, Apple’s discounted the 5th and 6th-generation refurbished iPads further discounts, pushing the floor for refurbished iPad prices down to $219 USD…
Newly added to the Refurbished iPad store was a “Refurbished iPad Wi-Fi 32GB – Gold (5th generation),” which was originally priced at $329 at launch, then more recently at $300. Now, with its current refurb discount, this iPad (released in 2017) is in Apple’s refurb store for $219.
Otherwise the least-expensive brand new iPad will currently be the new 32GB Wi-Fi iPad with 10.2-inch display – that’ll run you right around $329 USD.
MacDailyNews Take: Although Apple’s Certified Refurbished products are very good, the best in the business, if you can, spring the extra hundred or so and get yourself a brand spanking new 10.2-inch iPad with the very capable A10 Fusion chip, M10 coprocessor, Smart Connector, Apple Pencil (1st gen.) compatibility, and more!
