Snap a photo with the 8MP rear-facing facing camera, or connect a pair of Bluetooth earbuds and listen to your favorite study playlist. On a single charge, the battery may last for up to 10 hours, so you shouldn’t even need to stay close to an outlet; of course, a charger is included.

Most iPads are pretty pricey, but this one is much easier on the wallet in part because of its age. It’s currently running iOS 9 and won’t be able to update beyond iOS 12.5.6. Still, that update was specifically released to update the security for older devices, so you get modern protection on a device that definitely doesn’t have a modern price tag.
Whether you’re browsing, streaming, or just checking your socials, this little tablet is a low-cost device you can bring along for the ride.
