Buy an iPad from the Apple Store
The most obvious option (and the most recommended) is to go directly to the Apple Store. You can go to a physical Apple store (in this link you can find the Apple Store closest to your location); or, make the purchase through the official Apple website.
As you surely know, Apple is discontinuing iPad models as it releases new models to the market. This means that right now, Apple only sells four iPad models in its Apple Stores.
In addition to Apple stores, there are official distributors who are licensed to sell Apple products. You can find information about some of these official distributors on Apple’s official website.
These distributors are safe, that is, you do not risk being sold a fake or defective product. So if you don’t have an Apple Store nearby, you can also check if you have an Apple reseller.
To do this, click on the following link and in the ‘Sales’ section enter your address to see if you have an Apple dealer nearby.
Buy older iPad models
On the other hand, there may be the situation that you prefer to buy an older iPad model, that is, one that is not available in the Apple Store. Is this possible?
If it is. Although Apple is discontinuing older iPad models and replacing them with newer ones, there are big tech stores that do continue to sell those models.

Another option in the air, especially if you have a tighter budget, will be to buy a second-hand iPad. Obviously, this option is somewhat more risky since, although you can save a lot of money if you make a good purchase, it may also be that you end up buying a model that is too used or even that does not work well.
Therefore, it is important that the seller is reliable and above all that the price is appropriate. Always compare it to the price of new iPad models to see if the downgrade is really worth it or not.
Some stores where you can find cheaper second-hand iPad models are the following:
