If you need a ‘cheap’ iPad for the kids or streaming content, Apple’s older fifth-generation iPad with 9.7-inch Retina display has been restocked online within the refurbished store.
As of writing, the 32GB Wi-Fi iPad is available for $299, saving you $90 according to Apple. This iPad was originally released in March 2017 and is powered by the company’s A9 CPU. There are also 128GB Wi-Fi models available for $399.
Refurbished iPads come with a new battery and outer shell, along with standard one year warranty from Apple.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for iPads have increased as most people remain home and consume online content.
For those waiting for the newer iPad 6 refurb, it usually sells for $359 and might be worth waiting for if you want a processor bump to the A10 Fusion. But at $299 for an iPad with a new battery, shell and warranty for casual use, you can’t beat the price.
