The Dallas Morning News is the biggest newspaper in the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) area and one of the top 20 paid circulated newspapers in the United States. In its mission to keep North Texans informed, the paper is giving away a free iPad this spring. The Apple device contest is open through April 3, and one lucky individual will enjoy a whole new way to stay connected.

It’s easy to enter the contest for the free iPad. Simply visit The Dallas Morning News website and provide your name and email address. Note that your entry provides consent to receive emails from the newspaper. However, you can opt out of the mailing list later if you choose.

Although the contest does not specify which free iPad the winner will receive, the terms and conditions state that the prize has a $350 value. That price indicates that they may be giving away an iPad 9th Generation. If so, the winner will receive a great basic model that includes features not seen on older models.

If the free iPad is a 9th Generation, it will be compatible with a keyboard case. That makes typing on the iPad far more comfortable for daily use. It also will accommodate an Apple Pencil, further expanding the device’s ability to serve multiple purposes.

The portable Apple device has a screen big enough to feel like a small laptop. The 9th Generation has a 10.2-inch Retina display with True Tone, a feature that Apple says provides “incredible detail and vivid colors.”. It also has a 12MP ultra-wide front camera with Center Stage, a free iPad feature that follows faces and allows the user to zoom in on video calls.

“The added A13 processor upgrade makes it fast enough for most needs and then some,” said Scott Stein, Editor at Large at CNET, in a review of the ninth-gen. “On benchmark tests, it’s about as fast as an iPhone 11 (no surprise, since it has the same processor). It’s fine for multitasking, gaming, and video and doesn’t seem to lag.”

Stein also said he finds that most iPads last a whole day of normal use. Apple’s iPad advertising promises 10 hours of battery life on a single charge. Apple also states on its website that the device comes with accessibility features that support hearing, vision, mobility, and cognitive needs.

The free iPad promises to be a reliable device regardless of which generation model The Dallas Morning News is providing. This is not the first time this newspaper has given away a free iPad. They ran a similar contest last August before the new school year started.

The Dallas Morning News has a long history of offering its readers the opportunity to enter fun giveaways. Earlier this month, the company offered a Spring Shopping Sweepstakes that gave the winner $400 to spend at popular DFW shopping centers. Other recent contest prizes included a hockey puck signed by players on the Dallas Stars, Dallas Mavs memorabilia, and a signed Texas Rangers baseball.

The Dallas Morning News was established in 1885 by Alfred Horatio Belo as a supplement to The Galveston Daily News. The paper has won nine Pulitzer Prizes for photography and reporting. The company also publishes Al Día, a weekly newspaper for the Hispanic community read by over 800,000 readers in the DFW area.
