'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.

If you're looking for an amazing tablet, you can't go wrong with an iPad, but Apple products don't often see big discounts during big sales. Amazon's October Prime Day, however, is still featuring some great Apple deals after the event ended, including a $399 iPad 10th Generation

Just launched last year, the iPad 10th Gen is available in four colors: Blue, Yellow, Pink, and Silver. It features a 2360 x 1640 pixels touch Liquid Retina display that stretches 10.9 inches diagonally and is available in 64GB or 256GB of storage. 

Powered by Apple's A14 Bionic chip, the 10th-generation iPad is perfect for everyday use, including as a go-to for students who don't need the extra features an iPad Pro has.

That being said, this iPad has many of the features of newer models: It has thinner bezels than its predecessor, no Touch ID and home button, and dual speakers to the left and right sides when placed horizontally. It also features an improved front-facing camera for FaceTime and conference calls compared to older generations.

If you have someone asking for an iPad this holiday season, the 10th-generation iPad at $399 may just be the one to check them off your shopping list. Apple future-proofed the 10th-Gen iPad with a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port, just like the ones in the newer iPhone 15
