Apple has TOO MANY iPads. I have no idea which one to buy anymore and it takes too long to try to figure out the differences between them.

Going to give you good advice for those looking to get new iPads via these Amazon deals:

[HEADING=1]DO NOT BUY……..[/HEADING]

New ones are coming soon in Spring most likely, and the iPads on sale are just too old at this point. New ones coming soon will be much better buy at this point.

Many iPad owners use their tablets for content consumption and nothing more. If you fall into that category, these discounts on the cheaper models might be a good deal for you. I agree new models will likely be released in Spring, but they will not be deeply discounted because.....well, they are new models. So, if you are just a garden variety tablet user, $349 for the iPad 10 is not a bad deal. You won't have much difficulty using it for 4-5 years; Mail, Safari, Photos, Streaming video, Notes, Calendar, Contacts, Books, etc... Even if it is dropped from iPadOS updates, you can still do most of the above for years to come.

That's $350/5years = $70year or $5.83 per month or one venti beverage at your local coffee shop.

If you are in the market for iPad Pro, we might be in for a sticker shock -- rumors peg 11-inch starting at $1499 for 13-inch starting at $1799. If double-layer OLED, landscape oriented front camera, and MagSafe charging are paramount, perhaps you can justify these hefty price increase.

As for the rest of the lineup, I hope to see some clarity in each model's purpose. I would like to see but don't expect:

* iPad (11th generation): newer A-series processor, Wi-Fi 7, and Bluetooth 5.3 for future proofing, bolder fun color choices. Previous 10th generation replaces the aging 9th generation at $329 price point.
* iPad Air (6th generation): available in both 12.9- and 10.9-inch. Refreshed to M2, Wi-Fi 7, and Bluetooth 5.3. 128GB base storage and ProMotion display, with landscape-oriented front camera.
