Queen Elizabeth II’s public funeral came to an end on Monday as members of the royal family, foreign leaders, and sizable crowds paid their respects to Britain’s longest-reigning head of state. While tens of thousands of people lined the streets to see the queen’s coffin as it went from Westminster Abbey the Windsor Castle, where she will bury together in a private service later Monday, President Biden attended the official funeral service in London.
Apple’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro drops to a new all-time low of $900
This could be your greatest opportunity to get Apple’s premium tablet to date. After an instant discount at checkout, Amazon is offering the 12.9-inch iPad Pro M1 with 128GB of storage for a new all-time low price of $900, which is $200 less than the original sticker price.
The 256GB and 512GB models are also available for $200 less. Even without cellular internet or other frills, this is still a very good deal if you’re in the market for a large-screen slate.
One of the most potent mobile tablets that can buy is the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The mini-LED screen is a delight whether you’re editing videos or relaxing with a TV marathon, and the M1 chip is quick enough for multitasking or other serious work.
In the appropriate circumstances, this could replace a laptop if it has Thunderbolt support (for peripherals such as monitors and external SSDs) and a strong accessory ecosystem, especially if iPadOS 16 is released with capabilities like Stage Manager.
This device still runs a mobile OS, so if you need desktop-level software or are managing many programs, you might prefer a laptop or Windows tablet.
However, timing can be the key factor in the halt. There are still rumors that Apple may release an M2-powered iPad Pro with MagSafe charging or other potential enhancements in October. If you insist on getting the most powerful iPad you can find, you might want to wait.
The M1 model, though, is tough to match if the price is your primary concern.
