'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

With Apple's 'Let Loose' event making headlines thanks to the new iPad Pro, iPad Air, Apple Pencil Pro, and more, the older models should not been forgotten, because they can still be just as good buys. The Apple iPad (9th Gen) continues to be a reliable tablet whether for work, entertainment, or creativity, even though it is one iteration behind the current 10th Gen iPad

With 256 GB and all-day battery life, this tablet covers all your daily necessities for work or casual use. Right now, you can grab one for $379, a savings of $100. 

The Apple iPad (9th Generation) is an excellent option for users looking for reliability and functionality. The A13 Bionic chip offers a smooth user experience for day-to-day use and multitasking. Although it's an older generation, it features a larger 256 GB storage and the 10.2-inch retina display showcases vibrant colors and crisp details for any captured content, making it great for a starter iPad or for young children. Plus, smaller storage iterations are available for as low as $249 at some retailers.

So, if you or a loved one are in the market for a new tablet (Mother's Day is around the corner, after all), the Apple iPad 9th Gen or 10th Gen are still solid options.
