Apple introduced the new iPad in September 2020 with an upgraded A12 Bionic processor with Neural Engine. This iPad is the most affordable tablet in Apple's lineup, and today's deal on Amazon is the second-best price that we've ever seen for the 32GB Wi-Fi model.

If you're looking for a bit more storage, you can also get the 128GB Wi-Fi iPad on sale, priced at $395.00, down from $429.00. All colors are available at this price and in stock on Amazon.

At least bump the base storage to 64GB. 32GB is too small.
I just realized that the reason they probably start at 32GB is so they can charge an extra $100 for the 128GB version. If they had 64GB and 128GB, they would only be a $50 price difference.

It’s all about the Benjamins.

Honestly I'm not sure it even makes sense to update this model annually. I doubt the target audience is the kind that upgrades often. This is the model I buy for my children, and I try to space their upgrades to be only every four years.

I would expect the next budget iPad to use A14 chips, and I wouldn't expect it until A15/M2 is the current flagship. That I believe matches the pattern they've used the last couple iterations; skip a chip generation and always one behind current.
People are on different upgrade cycles. I always cringe when pundits argue that the minor updates are “not worth the upgrade”. If I happen to buy a new one this year, I want to buy the best I can get right now, even if the update from last year is minor.

Well, I don’t like the fact that the Smart Keyboard doesn’t cover the back. The Apple Pencil doesn’t attach to it, which means that I might lose it.
