Tablet for creative 13 y.o.

Is the iPad tablet a good choice for our 13 y.o. granddaughter? With 256GB, Wi-Fi and Apple Pencil added it comes to $578. It will be her birthday present. All the reviews I read say it's the best for that price range. Any suggestions? Thoughts?

Will Black Friday prices probably be lower?

Does she really need 256GB?

Take a look at this thread:
Thanks for the link, just read it. Will probably go with the newest model at Best Buy with $50 discount. Now, how much storage/memory will a kid need? I have NO clue.

I know she publishes videos on Tic Tok (dancing & singing I believe). How does one know "how much is enough?"

She has also requested the Apple Pencil which adds $99.

Extended warranty for the pencil. My son has replaced his twice under warranty. He uses his iPad for class notes using an app.

Did you buy the AppleCare+ warranty for $69 or does that only cover the iPad?

yes with a different deductible $29 for the pencil. I purchased extra tips for the pencil. IPad is $49 deductible. It is less headache to buy both items in the same transaction.
