Whether you like them or not, Apple’s iPads are the world’s best-selling tablets for a reason. In fact, we can think of several good reasons why you’d want to buy an entry-level 9.7-incher (especially at a nice discount), a hot new 11 or 12.9-inch Pro variant, or even a slightly older 10.5 or 12.9-incher. Of course, rumor has it two upgraded models are right around the corner (three if we also count the iPad mini 5), but at a low enough price, 2017’s iPad Pro 10.5 and 12.9 remain very smart buys.
Although Amazon is not technically in charge of sales and shipments here, you can definitely trust the company’s Woot subsidiary to deliver on its promise of “like new” products tested and certified to work without a hitch. And just like Apple-sold refurbs, these units are backed by a full one-year warranty. All accessories shipped with the iPad Pro 10.5 and 12.9 (2017) are brand new, although you may have to settle for a generic white retail box.
That’s undoubtedly a very small compromise to make for huge savings on powerful tablets packing Apple A10X processors, with beautiful Retina displays also in tow, not to mention excellent battery life, premium sound technology, and surprisingly capable cameras.
