Refresh around the corner. Only buy a current iPad and iPad Pro if you need it.

They mention the $299 price for the 64GB model as being a “sale”. In the USA, Walmart sells it for $299 every day of the year. I bet other countries have similar prices at retail stores.

It’s going to be updated in a month so these older models will be selling for MUCH cheaper if you wait.

Since people tend to keep their iPads for more than 3-4 years, it makes zero sense to buy a non-USB-C iPad at this very moment.

Thanks for pointing this out. Here is a link to the Walmart listing. I always check Walmart, Best Buy, Sam's Club, and Costco pricing since they usually are the same or better than the MacRumors "deals".
