The 10.2-inch iPad 8 is a surprising powerful tablet in spite of the Black Friday low cost, thanks to the A12 chip and Apple Pencil support.
The iPad 8 is the latest (2020) model of Apple’s lowest cost, but still incredibly powerful, tablet. At a Black Friday $299 sale price, this is easily a must-buy for tech fans and will make for a great holiday gift, even if the recipient already owns a tablet. iPhone owners will appreciate the ability to sync bookmarks, passwords, and payment methods.
Mac computer owners will also enjoy the automatic iCloud integration that makes file and photo sharing easy. Even as a gift for someone new to the Apple world, the iPad is recognized by most as the best tablet available, even when choosing the low-cost model. Amazon takes $30 off the price, bringing this high-quality Apple iPad to $299, a bargain considering all that it’s capable of.
The iPad 8 has a fast A12 Bionic processor and its 10.2-inch Retina resolution display is bright and crisp. This is the newest model of the entry-level iPad, but it is compatible with the Apple Pencil for pressure-sensitive drawing and note-taking. The Pencil is more useful than ever with the addition of Scribble, an iPadOS 14 technology that allows the tablet to recognize hand-writing and treat it just like typed text.
The iPad 8 is a great starter computer when paired with a Smart Keyboard case. That isn’t part of this deal, but the $30 savings goes quite a long way towards accessories. While there are plenty of Black Friday deals available on Amazon and elsewhere, this iPad 8 in Apple’s Space Gray color will make a great purchase.
