Home school is the name of the game for the upcoming school year, which means your kids will need some quality devices to keep up with the modern curriculum. You could opt for a brand new laptop, but that can get pretty pricey. If you’re looking for an alternative that packs all the features your kid could possibly need, combines functionality with portability, and won’t break the bank, we’ve got you covered with 20 deals on Apple iPads.
The iPad offers the ability to read, research, take notes, surf the web, and even edit photos and videos in an extremely portable way, making it perfect for not only homeschooling but also social media scrolling and binge-watching Netflix.
Yes, iPads are notoriously expensive, but these babies are refurbished. That means they work good as new but come with a price tag you can stomach. Seriously, the prices are so low, you might just want to grab yourself one while you’re at it. Not to mention, buying refurbished can help you reduce your carbon footprint, rather than contributing to the growing electronic waste problem in this country (and beyond). Saving money and the environment? Win-win.
It’s been a decade since the very first iPad made its debut, but honestly, the OG 2010 model still holds up. Like the iPhone, the iPad gets a little more advanced with every generation, but they’re definitely built to last. Even the older generations can hold their own against the modern-day competitors.
The iPad Air, originally released in November 2013, is the iPad’s thinner sibling. It weighs in at just one pound, so it’s easy for a kid to tote around from room to room. And when the time comes to travel again, it’s easy to stuff in your carry-on for a long flight.
The most compact of the bunch, the iPad Mini features a smaller screen than the standard iPad (just 7.9 inches), but still packs a powerful punch. It features all the beloved iPad features like WiFi, Bluetooth, built-in cameras, and 10 hours of battery life in a teeny tiny package.
The newest member of the iPad family, the iPad Pro was originally released in 2015. It features multiple screen size options and upgraded specs, like an A9X chip, Apple M9 motion co-processors, retina displays, touch ID, smart connectors for keyboards, and even stereo speakers located in pairs. It’s the closest you can get to a MacBook without actually getting a MacBook.
