iPad 9 Discontinued, iPad 10 Now Starts at $349

The ninth-generation iPad started at $329 in the U.S., so the tenth-generation iPad is now much closer to that price point.

Despite the ninth-generation iPad being discontinued, the original Apple Pencil with a Lightning connector remains available for $99.

Apple's entire iPad lineup is now equipped with USB-C ports, excluding refurbished models.

There were no hardware changes to the iPad 10 or the iPad mini announced today, with only the iPad Pro and iPad Air lineups receiving updates.

I know that this 'base' basic level iPad is old news to most, but this is an amazing amount of technology packed into a single device for under $400.

When Amazon or BestBuy has this for $279, it's a great buy.

Useless thing. In few years it will be slower than the iPhone 4 when it got updated to iOS 7. Few bucks more and here is the iPad Air 11
Speak for yourself. I don't want to spend $600 to stream stuff in the kitchen but I will pay $350.

Have you actually used any of these devices you're talking about? The current (even base model) iPads are more than capable for basic stuff. Heck, even an iPad Air 2 or 3 is good enough I'd say, despite being on older software. $349 to $599 is more than a "few bucks".

Agreed. Still don't feel like $349 is worth it though. I'll wait for that $249 sale at Best Buy or wherever next.
