Apple fans wanting to buy a new iPad may have noticed some very good deals from the UK’s top high street retailers.
Currys and Argos have both slashed the price of last year’s tablet with discounts of around £40 available right now.
Currys currently has Apple’s iPad 2017 on sale for £299 (saving £40) while Argos is selling this popular gadget for £309 (saving £30 off the original price).
However, although there’s money to be saved these deals may not be as good as you might think.
Apple has just announced the launch of its new refreshed 2018 iPad which brings more features at a much lower price.
This new tablet is available now for a price of £319 – which is only slightly more expensive than these latest discounted iPad 2017 deals.
For the extra money you get plenty of bonus features on the 2018 edition including a much faster A10 Fusion processor and support for the Apple Pencil.
This digital stylus allows users to scribble on the screen with ultimate accuracy and, until now, its compatibility has only been available on the £619 iPad Pro.
In Express.co.uk’s recent iPad review we said: “Apple’s new 2018 iPad is impossible not to recommend.
“This latest tablet is fast, powerful and packed full of features that make it a must-have upgrade for anyone with an ageing tablet.
“The fact you can now use the Apple Pencil is a huge bonus especially with more apps now supporting this digital stylus.
“The new iPad is truly excellent and at £319 is a bit of a bargain.”
In our opinion we would definiely recommend buying this new tablet over the discounted model from last year.
Although you’ll save a few pounds this new device is far more powerful and the Apple Pencil support is welcomed addition.
By buying the very latest model you’re also future-proofing yourself especially with the US technology firm expected to announce some big software updates in June.
Apple will hold its annual developer conference June 4th – 8th at the McEnery Convention Centre.
The World Wide Developer Conference, known as WWDC, allows Apple to share updates to its hardware, software and services with the developer community.
Apple typically showcases the next major version of its operating systems, including iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS.
Last year saw a huge iPad upgrade with iOS 11 bringing a range of new features to the popular tablet including a new dock and the ability to drag and drop, giving users a quick and easy way to move text, images, and files from one app to another.
