I have no idea new iPad coming and I dont know why they confuse a lot with the naming.
Every time I see a iPad deal somewhere, I have to google to see which year iPad is that and is it the newest, etc.

Thank you

I’m assuming it’s the newest one as apple isn’t selling last year’s version any longer.

I have a very old iPad 2 (a real second generation one). I remember once looking for when it was released. How the hell can there be so many iPad 2 and what the hell is this naming convention?

I think they just want people who don't care about about what they're getting as long as it works well to just buy the latest gen without thinking too much.

Makes me NOT want an iPad as I dont want to research the flustercuck. I'd just go for a recommended Android tablet instead.

RBC model number is MRJN2CL/A which is the same as Costco and Staples so it would be the 2018 model.

Time to replace the wife's 2nd year iPad.

edit: Can't order, says $271.01 is the maximum amount you can apply to a card for this order. Guess you need a base amount of points to be able to then.
"You'll need RBC Rewards points for at least 20% of the total value of your purchase. You can use points for the remaining 80%, or you can use your RBC Royal Bank credit card."

Can you do 25k pts and then rest on cc? There’s an RBC cc promo for 25k pts right?

Expiry on this offer?

Me too. I'm not an apple fan, although I do have an iPad 3 and an iPhone 7. iPhones are a little easier to keep track of, but I'm totally confused about the various generations and versions of iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Pro. Only thing I know is, if your budget allows, the Pro is the way to go.

Apple still sells 4 models of the IPad. This isn't the newest one, that would be the Pro.

Are we now on the 2nd generation of Pro? I believe they ditched the 9.7" Pro, so it's now just 10.5" and 12"? So damn confusing. Angry Face

Manufacture number on RBC rewards states MR7G2CL/A. Same as IPad 9.7 2018/6th generation. I.e. the most recent version

Seems normal to you guys but makes no sense to me. They advertise the product as being 60K points *or* $321.75, but then when you try to buy you can't buy if you don't have enough points. Just looks like false advertising to me.
Happy Koodo Public Mobile customer :-)

I find it easy to remember that the 2017 iPad is officially 5th generation, while the 2018 is the 6th. Anything else, be it Air, Pro or mini are treated as separate lines.
