Black Friday 2019: Best Deals on iPads

Apple's iPads are a popular purchase choice during Black Friday because many of the major retailers offer up steep discounts on various models, including the iPad Pro, iPad Air, and the already super affordable 10.2-inch seventh-generation iPad.

Below, we've rounded up all of the best deals that we've found for the iPad so if you're looking to pick up a new tablet either for yourself or for a holiday gift, you're going to want to check out the list below.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

10.2-inch iPad

Even though the 10.2-inch iPad was just released in September 2019 and already has a low starting price of $329, multiple retailers are offering it even cheaper this year.

Target, Best Buy, Walmart, and Staples are all offering the 32GB Wi-Fi only 10.2-inch iPad for $250, which is an $80 discount and the lowest price that we've seen since launch.

$250 for the 10.2-inch iPad is a great deal, and this is the tablet that's ideal for most users. It features a larger display than prior entry-level models, it supports the Apple Pencil, and it even works with Apple's Smart Keyboard for the first time.

If you're looking for the higher-capacity 128GB model, the best price you're going to get is from Amazon. Amazon is offering the 128GB 10.2-inch iPad for $330, which is a discount of $100 off of the original $429 price tag.

iPad Pro

If you're a My Best Buy member (which is free), you can get select iPad Pro models for a discount of $150 to $200. According to Best Buy, pricing will start at $650, which is $150 off of the $799 price of the entry-level 11-inch 64GB WiFi-only iPad Pro.

Most other retailers aren't offering specific Black Friday discounts on the iPad Pro, but Amazon has some deals available:

If you're looking for an older, more affordable model with a lot of storage, Walmart is selling the 10.5-inch iPad Pro with 512GB of storage for $699, down from $999.

iPad Air

As with the iPad Pro, there are few Black Friday specific deals on the iPad Air because most retailers are focusing on discounting the 10.2-inch iPad. Amazon has some of the only discounts available.

Of course the only iPad I’m interested in, the mini, is the only iPad not on sale.

Bad deals all around. These were basically sales prices all year long. This close to the next pro release you’d want to wait. You can do better than 150-200 off.

The Mini 5 is what I have been looking at as well. But the $50 gift card is still not good enough for me to get off the fence. My (albeit very slow) 3rd gen iPad still works, so will stick with it a little bit longer.

I am guessing the reason for no major deal on it is that it's selling pretty well(?)

The one I picked up yesterday from the apple store still had 12.3.1 on it.

What am I missing? What’s the $50 gift card everyone is mentioning?
Thanks

If you buy an iPad mini between now and Monday at the Apple store, you’ll get a $50 apple store gift card. It’s the only deal I’ve seen since the mini 5 was released.
