iPad 10.2 (2019): Apple’s “cheap tablet” seductive for only 344 euros
Usually, the new iPad 10.2 (2019) with 10.2-inch display from Apple in the 32 GB version (WiFi) costs 379 euros. Elsewhere it is 10 to 20 euros cheaper here and there. Currently, the cheap Apple tablet is available for just 344 euros on eBay – 35 euros, or 9 percent cheaper than Apple. For this you get the variant in the pleasing space gray. Incidentally, the offer is backed by the renowned and authorized Apple dealer Gravis.
The price history of the price comparison site Idealo is of course not really meaningful at the moment, because the iPad 10.2 has not yet been on the market for a month. Nevertheless, the direction is clear: down. Depending on availability, prices could drop even further, but we don’t expect major steps until next year.
iPad 10.2 (2019): is it worth buying?
Apple has done a lot of things right with the new entry-level tablet. The larger screen and the support for Apple’s Smart Keyboard are positive. Pencil support (1st generation) was also available on the predecessor with 9.7 inches. Apple has saved in detail, so the screen is not laminated, so it reflects a little more and the input of the pencil is not quite as smooth.
The iPad 10.2 is delivered with the new iPadOS and includes these useful features:
There is no change to the chip – the A10, which is already getting a bit old, has also been adopted by its predecessor. In short: The cheapest Apple tablet should be able to perform most tasks to full satisfaction – ideal for schoolchildren and bargain hunters. Those who love it more modern, on the other hand, prefer the new iPad Air.
