This is the lowest price we've ever tracked for the 9th generation iPad, and Amazon has it in both Silver and Space Gray. The latter color does appear to have somewhat dwindling stock as of writing.

If you want a bit more storage, you'll find a similar $99 discount on the 256GB model. It's available for $379.99, down from $479.00 on Amazon.

This 2021 iPad lacks the design changes that arrived in the 10th generation models, but at this $99 discount it's a great entry-level tablet for kids or family members who don't need a Pro-level tablet.

This is a piece of crap and the reason Apple should allow going back on iOS versions. I picked up one of these for my son to replace an old iPad Mini 4 which was bogging down badly and not eligible for iOS 17. With iOS 17 his new iPad 9 bogs down left and right and often just outright freezes for several seconds. If it wasn't for the app store I would regret not just buying him an old Surface Pro 3 which runs rings around it with Win10, but he has certain apps/games which he prefers from Apple.
There must be something wrong with it if it is actually freezing up... that or you have downloaded a suspicious attachement or visited an extremely dodgy website.

Take it back and get it checked out, or perform a reset at least.

There is no way even 9th gen iPad would perform that bad if well looked after.

buy yourself a little piece of 2014 at a bargain price
Apple A13 was launched 2019…. If you want 2014 tech, that would be likely iPad Air 2 with Apple A8 variant technology.

This iPad would work, and work well, for some people with basic needs like web browsing, email etc. And likely last years more with support. Not everyone can afford the latest and greatest and I applaud apple for even having options like this out there. You can still buy apple quality on a budget.

It’s not for everyone, but people can make their own minds up.

9th gen iPad is like the iPad 2 and Watch Series 3. Apple just won't kill it and it's way past its expiration date.
It exists just to have a low cost iPad. Good entry into the iPad ecosystem or for those who have basic needs. I personally wouldn’t buy a device with the Lightning port in 2023, and I do need to replace my decade old iPad. This is not the one, for me at least.

Tempting to perhaps order this. Seems like a really good deal on an older model iPad.

For someone wanting a basic tablet, it’s a steal. There are loads of people with older tablets still doing things they need about the house and at work.

At those sales prices, this is probably the best Apple product in terms of value presently. It is better than any Android tablet in terms of performance and simplicity. It is also perfect for most tablet use cases (content consumption, browsing, communication, messaging ...). I got myself one just to use it for Facetime/Zoom/Teams calls and free my 11" M1 iPad Pro and other devices from those battery draining activities.
