10.2-Inch iPad Now Available for Purchase at Select Apple Stores

Apple today activated its in-store reserve and pickup system for the new 10.2-inch iPad in the United States and Canada.

This system enables customers to purchase the 10.2-inch iPad on Apple.com in advance and select a 30-minute window to pick it up at an Apple Store. The tool can also be used to monitor inventory of the 10.2-inch iPad at Apple Stores based on ZIP or postal code, with stock available at many locations today.

To check if Apple Stores in your area have stock, head to the 10.2-inch iPad purchase page on Apple's website, configure your desired model, select "check another store" under "pickup," and enter your ZIP or postal code.

When you get to the Apple Store, let an employee know you have an order to pick up. Make sure to bring a valid government-issued photo ID with you. Apple also sometimes provides a QR code that can be added to the Wallet app for convenience and quicker check-in, but this is optional.

Alongside in-store pickups, the 10.2-inch iPad is now available for walk-in purchase in many countries. Availability will vary by store, so we recommend calling ahead to confirm your desired model is in stock.

Apple unveiled the 10.2-inch iPad at its September event earlier this month. The 10.2-inch iPad is similar to the 9.7-inch iPad it replaces, with the same A10 Fusion chip and Apple Pencil support, but it has a larger display and a Smart Connector that enables support for Apple's full-sized Smart Keyboard.

10.2-inch iPad pricing starts at $329 in the United States, in line with the 9.7-inch iPad.

I am disapointed that apple couldn't upgrade the CPU. It will shorten the device's useful lifespan with a several year old CPU.

I couldn't possibly be any less interested in any Apple device than this lame derivative stock clearance iteration. The "new" iPod touch, perhaps?

10.5” Pro is still the best bang for your buck. Can get some good deals used.

This is still using an A10 chip and isn't much faster than the 9.7 iPad Pro with the A9X. The Air is definitely the better value. Also, Apple has a history of dropping hardware support around 5 years of a products life and the internals of this iPad are going on year 3.
It should be at least A11 but this model will be supported for 5-8 more years - my kids school still using the previous gen (A9) and they get full support from Apple - also the A10 is faster than 95% of tablets out - there is nothing on the app store that won't run on it.

The great thing about this iPad is if you don't like it, you don't have to buy it. This iPad isn't for hardcore Macrumors members. This is for kids, students, grandparents....

Like others have said, they put lipstick on a pig. Anyone interested in this should just save a little extra cash and get the Air.
