The last of its kind
Along with a duo of updated iPad Pros, the new 2022 standard iPad marks a significant change to Apple’s core tablet family, making the 2021 ninth-generation iPad – which the company still sells – the last to feature a Lightning port and a Home button. While the retail price has stayed the same directly from Apple in the US, the company has actually raised it in other regions around the world, making offers from other retailers besides Apple much more substantial. Even with the official price increase, keep an eye out for discounts elsewhere. Read more: iPad 10.2 (2021) review.

3. Amazon Fire HD 10 (2021)
Affordable, portable productivity machine
The big catch with the Amazon Fire HD 10 2021 tablet was that you could have it as part of a productivity package that also included a keyboard cover and a year of access to Microsoft Office 365 included in the price. This offer is still in effect, and Amazon continues to drop the deal price, making not only the Fire HD 10, but also access to Office 365 an increasingly better value. The HD 10 also doubles up as the Amazon Echo Show, making it a good smart home companion as well. Read more: Amazon Fire HD 10 review (2021).
