Apple's iPad family spans across four different models: the 7.9-inch iPad mini, the 10.2-inch iPad, the 10.5-inch iPad Air, and the iPad Pro (11-inch and 12.9-inch models). With this collection of multiple display sizes, Apple provides each of its users with whatever they desire when it comes to using a tablet to work, read, surf the internet, and more.
Below are the best prices for each iPad configuration currently available at some of the major Apple resellers. Prices fluctuate on a consistent basis, so if you see an iPad you want, be sure to follow the links to the appropriate sites and place your order now.
In terms of upgrades, Apple just announced 2021 iPad Pros. These refreshed tablets come with the M1 chip and have up to 50 percent faster performance and up to 40 percent faster graphics compared to the A12Z Bionic chip in the 2020 models. In this guide, we'll still be tracking deals for each 2020 and 2021 generation of iPad Pro, as now you can expect steep discounts on the previous models.
As for the latest iPad Air and 10.2-inch iPad, Apple in September 2020 updated these models with a new design for the iPad Air and updated internals for the iPad. As usual, you won't find any deep discounts for these brand new iPads right now, so if you really want to shop for a good sale, you'll still want to look at previous-generation iPad Air and iPad devices, which is what we focus on in the sections below.
In this guide, you'll find the best currently available prices for every model of the iPad at major Apple resellers including Adorama, Amazon, B&H Photo, Best Buy, and MacMall (which is now integrated with TigerDirect). We'll be tracking the best prices for all of Apple's tablets, particularly focusing on the 2019 and 2020 updates.
The iPad mini is the smallest iPad available to purchase, but it isn't quite the cheapest (that'll be the 10.2-inch iPad). Still, it's a solid buy if you're looking for a display size that sits between the size of an iPhone 11 Pro Max and a regular 10-inch+ sized iPad. If you don't mind reading from a non e-ink display, it makes for a good e-reader as well with Apple Books.
There haven't been many deals on the iPad mini 5 over the past few months. This month, you can get the Wi-Fi 64GB iPad mini for $384.00, down from $399.00. This is far from the best sale, so we recommend waiting for a better deal.
Apple refreshed the basic iPad in 2019 with a new 10.2-inch display, upgraded internals, and support for the Smart Keyboard accessory. This is a barebones Apple tablet that offers a bigger display than the iPad mini, but isn't as powerful as the iPad Air and iPad Pro.
Apple updated the iPad with an upgraded A12 chip in mid-September of 2020, and Amazon introduced deals on the 32GB and 128GB models throughout last fall. Right now, there aren't any notable discounts on this iPad in 2021.
A new iPad Air launched in October, so now there are two models on the market. We've seen notable deals on the 2019 iPad Air, which is still a solid buy for those looking in the mid-range for a tablet. The 2019 iPad Air has a 10.5-inch display, Touch ID, A12 Bionic processor, and support for the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard. The 2020 iPad Air has an edge-to-edge 10.9-inch display, Touch ID power button, a brand-new A14 Bionic chip, and new colors.
The best 2020 iPad Air discount out right now is the 64GB Wi-Fi model for $559.99 at Amazon, down from $599.00. We've seen these models go down to $539.99 in previous weeks.
You can also get the 256GB Wi-Fi iPad Air for $675.00, down from $749.00.
The iPad Pro family is Apple's high-end model of tablets, with edge-to-edge displays with Face ID and support for the Apple Pencil 2. Apple markets these devices as notebook replacements, which you can pair with a Smart Keyboard to type easier during your workflow.
The 2020 11-inch iPad Pro is seeing quite a few discounts now that a newer model is coming out soon. You can get the 256GB Wi-Fi iPad Pro for $799.00, down from $899.00 at Amazon. This is one of the steepest deals on this model, but you can also save on the 128GB, 512GB, and 1TB Wi-Fi models, not to mention a few cellular versions.
The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is essentially the same tablet as the 11-inch model, but with a larger display and higher prices. This doesn't mean that you can't get a good deal on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, however, and we've already seen solid discounts on the new 2020 refresh of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
For example, you can get the 256GB Wi-Fi model for $899.99 ($200 off), the 512GB Wi-Fi model for $1,099.00 ($200 off), and more. These prices are the best discounts we've ever tracked for each model.
Apple unveiled the new 11-inch iPad Pro in April, and a launch is expected at the end of May. These new tablets have 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB storage options, marking the first time we've seen a 2TB option.
Like with all new Apple products, we don't expect to see any steep price point drops on the 2021 11-inch iPad Pro for a while. Now that pre-orders are open, there are a few small discounts at Expercom, and Walmart has $50 off a few 11-inch models as well.
Apple also announced new 12.9-inch iPad Pro models alongside 11-inch devices in April. These have a few differences to the smaller-screen model, including a new Liquid Retina XDR display, with up to 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness and up to 1,600 nits of peak brightness.
Otherwise, the tablets are largely the same (despite display sizes). And just like the 11-inch, we aren't expecting to see big sales on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro in the next few weeks, but you'll find a few deals on Expercom.
A pair of iPad Pro deals has appeared today on B&H Photo and Verizon, offering low prices for a new tablet and compatible Smart Folio accessory. On B&H Photo, you can get the 12.9-inch iPad Pro from 2018 (64GB Wi-Fi) for $799.00, down from $999.00.
