Already the most affordable in the iPad lineup, the 9.7-inch iPad is a great entry-level tablet. Plus, it’s a good way to get started with Apple Pencil without breaking the bank. Win-win.
The 9.7-inch 6th generation iPad has the classic iPad aesthetic and boasted noteworthy upgrades upon release in 2018 — mainly faster performance, longer 10-hour battery life, and Apple Pencil support, which was previously only available to fancy iPad Pro owners. Other specs are similar to previous iPad generations, for the most part. That includes the 2048×1536 LED backlit retina display (non-laminated), 7.5mm thickness, big bezels, lightweight design (just 1 pound), first-generation Touch ID, 1.2-megapixel FaceTime HD camera, and 8-megapixel camera on the back.
The refurbished model on sale is space gray, has 32 GB of storage, 2GB RAM, and can only connect via WiFi (no cellular data). The WiFi-only model is actually beneficial for your bank account — if you connect an iPad to your cellular plan, you’ll end up paying more for the device, plus the data plan. If you mostly plan on using your iPad at home, the WiFi-only model should serve you just fine. And if you ever do need to connect to the internet with no wireless networks around, you can always use the hotspot feature on your phone.
The iPad is listed with a “B” refurbished rating. It may have a few scratches and imperfections on the outside, but nothing too noticeable. It also comes with a tempered glass screen protector and a snap-on case for extra safety. Grab the classic refurbished tablet and accessories bundle for just $250 (reg. $399) for a limited time.
