Walmart has Apple's sixth-gen iPad on sale at a massive $130 discount in several versions
Just in case you're not finding it hard enough to choose the right iPad for you from the numerous new versions officially sold by Apple, Walmart has an interesting deal in place on a slightly older model no longer available directly from its manufacturer.

We're talking about the spring 2018-released 9.7-inch iPad, aka the sixth-generation iPad, which normally costs $330 and up. Of course, with its 10.2-inch successor priced exactly the same, the slightly smaller slate needs a pretty big discount to capture the attention of bargain hunters nowadays.

$130 off list certainly qualifies as precisely what the doctor ordered for a healthy popularity boost, although unfortunately, that doesn't mean you can buy the iPad (6th Gen) for as little as 200 bucks. That's because Walmart doesn't appear to have the entry-level Wi-Fi-only 32GB variant in stock, charging $299 instead of $430 with 128 gigs of storage space. Meanwhile, the cellular-enabled 9.7-incher is currently up for grabs at $329 and $429 in 32 and 128GB configurations respectively, both prices also being $130 lower than usual.

This is the highest discount we've ever seen a major retailer offer on the iPad (2018) in brand-new condition with a standard 1-year warranty included, and naturally, you get plenty of chromatic choice as well. Then again, one LTE-capable 32 gig model (coated in silver) is already showing up as out of stock, and we're guessing a bunch of others will eventually follow suit if you don't hurry and pull the trigger as soon as possible.

In case you're wondering, this 9.7-incher is not radically different from 2019's 10.2-inch iPad (7th Gen), as the two share everything from their general design language to a reasonably powerful Apple A10 Fusion processor, a front-mounted Touch ID fingerprint scanner, a single 8MP rear-facing camera with f/2.4 aperture, and a 1.2MP front shooter with f/2.2 aperture. Basically, the only notable differences are the larger screen and Smart Keyboard support of the newer tablet.
