If you are determined to get the newest iPad together with the original keyboard, buy them on Amazon and save $50.
As you know, the newest iPad 10.2 (2019) starts shipping on September 30. You can preorder it in the Apple online store for a regular price, but if you are looking for a deal, you can already get one on Amazon.

$159. However, you can buy it on Amazon for as low as $110, which means you keep almost $50 in your pocket. It’s the saving of over 30%.
When you visit the product page of the Smart Keyboard on Amazon, you will see the title “Apple Smart Keyboard for 10.5-inch iPad Pro – US English.” Is it compatible with the newest 10.2-inch iPad? Yes. This keyboard works with three iPad models:
- iPad Pro 10.5
- iPad Air (3rd generation)
- iPad (7th generation) – which is the newest 10.2-inch model
To summarize. You can buy iPad 10.2 (Wi-Fi + 32 GB variant) + Smart Keyboard in the Apple store and pay $488 in total. Or you can buy the same set on Amazon and spend $439.
To buy iPad 10.2 with Smart Keyboard on Amazon, simply add the iPad to the cart first, and then look on the right side for the section saying “Add an Accessory” (see the screenshot below). Then, check the box “Apple Smart Keyboard for 10.5-inch iPad Pro – US English.”
The saved $50 you can spend on a screen protector or a solid iPad 10.2 cover. You can also get the Apple Pencil. It is also compatible with the newest iPad, and it’s also cheaper on Amazon than anywhere else. Right now its price is set at $94.88 (
The newest iPad features a bigger 10.2-inch Retina display with a 2160 × 1620 px screen resolution and 264 ppi pixel density. With a wide viewing angle and almost 3.5 million pixels, the display is a vivid canvas for creative expression.
