Last week I upgraded my iPad at what I thought was a great price of $289. It was a great price. However, I wish I had known that Amazon was going to discount them even further to $249! I just checked on Amazon and this deal is still available on the gold colored, current generation iPads. Earlier in the week the deal was available on the silver and gray colored models, but it appears the deal is only available on the gold model now (2pm ET on December 11th).
Should You Upgrade Your iPad?
In my case, I upgraded my iPad because my old one was made in 2014 and doesn’t run the latest virtual reality and augmented reality that seem to be popping-up on a weekly basis. A secondary motivation was to get an iPad that has more storage space. My old one has half the storage of the new one that I just purchased. If either of those things appeal to you, then this is a great time to get the latest iPad at a great price. I’ve never seen new iPads available at this price.
If you don’t have a desire to try the latest AR and VR apps or don’t feel the need for more storage space on your iPad then there is no compelling reason that I can give you to replace a working iPad unless you’re still using the first generation that doesn’t have a camera.
