On September 14, “California Streaming” event, the much-anticipated fall launch of Apple products got off to a good start as the Cupertino tech giant launched several models iPhone 13, Apple Watch Series 7, and iPad 9th generation. Preorders are open for the iPad and retail giant Walmart has already offered a discount.
Retailer Walmart is renowned for its deep discounts specially during festive occasions and new launches when it marks down older models of innumerable products. However, the retailer, in what may be first of its kind, has offered a discount on the new iPad 9th generation, even before its release.
Apple has priced the new iPad at $329 on preorder with a shipping date of September 24. However, Walmart is offering the same product at a pre-selling price of $299 as its base price. This is $30 cheaper than the price by Apple and is available at $299. This is the rate at which students and teachers can buy an iPad.
Historically, Apple has not offered huge discounts on its products as it believes in their popularity and high quality. However, in the recent past, big retailers and e-commerce giants, who are eager to expand, have been offering sizable discounts on several Apple products.
It has been seen that Apple devices bought from Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart have been cheaper when compared to rates at other locations including the Apple Store. However, offering a discount during pre-sales is a new concept. Nobody know how long the $30 discount for the 9th generation iPad will remain. So, if you are neither a student nor a teacher and want the latest iPad, now is time to order it at Walmart.
Some of the upgraded features in the new iPad are as follows:
- An A13 bionic chip that improves CPU and GPU by 20 percent.
- Double the storage from 32GB to 64GB in the base model.
- 12MP ultra-wide camera with additional features.
- UBS-C at par with other Apple devices.
