The 2019 iPad packs in a 10.2-inch Retina Display, support for the Apple Pencil, Smart Keyboard and ships with iPadOS 13 onboard for $329. The new iPad is tempting, it’s affordable and it packs in features that just a few years ago only existed on premium models. Here’s a look at the reasons to buy the 2019 iPad, and a few reasons to wait.
The new iPAd is on sale now, starting at $329 for the base model, and we’ve already seen deals take at least $29 off the iPad at Amazon. While it’s not a must-have for every buyer, if you’re using an older model, or looking to replace an aging laptop, this might be the perfect device for you.
You can buy the iPad for in-store pickup today at Apple, and it is on sale at many retailers with deliveries in mid-October. Apple’s base 2019 iPad starts at $329 for the 32GB model and $429 for the 128GB model.

Buy Forthe Larger Display & Smart Connector
The new iPad features a larger 10.2-inch display and it now supports the Smart Connector, which lets you attach an Apple Smart Keyboard to your laptop.
This 2019 iPad replaces the 9.7-inch iPad that Apple sold up until this month. You get an extra half-inch, which is noticeable, but not as game-changing as going up to an 11-inch or 12.9-inch iPad Pro. While it would have been nice to see True-Tone come to this model, it's still a nice upgrade to the display.
Another change is the Smart Connector, which lets you connect the Smart Keyboard for the iPad. This is a keyboard that uses small contacts on the back to connect and to get power.
These are the major new features for the iPad, and if you know that you will use them, go ahead and buy today.
