Apple is set to release its newest addition to the iPad lineup in a week’s time. Before the device gets released, however, it’s already been discounted to sell for a lower price.

It’s not everyday that consumer electronics’ prices get slashed before they could actually be placed on the shelves - especially if the devices have Apple’s name in them. 9To5Toys reported, however, that Apple’s new 10.2-inch iPad has already been discounted at Amazon before it could be launched.

Only three days after the 10.2-inch iPad was unveiled, Amazon already decided to offer a $29 discount off the original selling price of the Wi-Fi 128GB configuration. This means those who preordered the device won’t have to pay the original $429 anymore. The discount might not be that huge, but since this is a yet-to-be-released Apple product, the discount sounds very enticing.

The new iPad replaces the 9.7-inch iPad model, and brings new features previously found only on the iPad Pro models. Here’s what the new iPad brings to consumers:

  • A wider display

The seventh-gen iPad has a wider display compared to its predecessors. The 10.2-inch Retina display boasts of 3.5 million pixels and a wide viewing angle that makes it easy to watch videos, look at photos or play games with friends.

  • Apple Pencil support

The new iPad features support for the first-gen Apple Pencil, which allows users to do so much more. With the Apple Pencil, users can do on a lower-cost iPad what they were normally able to do only on the iPad Pro.

  • Smart Keyboard support

The new iPad also features support for the full-sized Smart Keyboard, which effectively turns the entry-level tablet into a portable workstation. Type messages, documents and other things easily with the Smart Keyboard.

The new iPad still has some features found on older iPad models. It has an A10 Fusion chip, which won’t be as fast as the newer chips found on newer iPad and iPhone models; has a lightning connector instead of a USB-C port; and has a 3.5mm headphone jack that’s perfect for those who have no use for wired headphones they have at home.
