If you’re in the market for a new iPad, today’s your lucky day as Apple just unveiled is new 8th-generation iPad during its September 15 press event. It is the latest addition to Apple’s tablet lineup, alongside a 2020 iPad Air that was also announced today.

Like the 7th-generation model before it, the 8th-gen iPad is the gateway product to the iPad platform with prices starting at just $329. Despite its low cost, the device is no slouch.

Apple’s 2020 iPad makes the jump to the A12 processor, up from the A10 in the last model, which will help it keep apace with other products in Apple’s lineup and add support for future iPadOS updates. The design has remained similar to the previous-gen model — no iPad Pro-style redesign here like in the new iPad Air — so you still have the traditional chin-and-forehead design and a Touch ID Home button for security.

Though it is missing features of the more advanced iPads, like USB-C or Face ID, the entry-level iPad is still going to be a very capable tablet for most people. Its familiar design will also be a boon for novice users.

The new iPad has only just been announced so there aren’t a ton of deals to choose from just yet. If you want to be one of the first to own Apple’s new tablet, check out the list of retailers below and be sure to place an order before there are any shipping delays.
