Amazon may have kicked off its early Prime Day deals ahead of the 13 October start date, but that doesn’t mean the other e-retailer behemoth, eBay, can’t compete.
The newest iteration of Apple’s iconic tablet costs £329 but the 5% discount drops the price to £312.55, which is even cheaper than KRCS, which has £6.57 off.
You can compare the pricing on the new 8th gen iPad from other retailers below:
One of the biggest upgrades on the new iPad is the inclusion of Neural Engine, which boosts the tablet’s image processing and rendering abilities, along with its AR (augmented reality) and Siri performance.
The 8th generation iPad will also offer a 40% improvement in performance and twice the graphics abilities, thanks to an A12 Bionic chip upgrade. It’s excellent value compared to the 7th gen model, which is also more expensive.
Don’t forget, if you’re a student you can get an Apple Education discount on the new iPad.
