The Best iPad Deals
2021 Apple iPad 10.2" 64GB WiFi for $269.99
Today Amazon has the 2021 Apple iPad 10.2" Wi-Fi 64GB tablet for only $269.99. This is the least expensive iPad you can buy right now (brand new) and it's the same price we saw on Black Friday. Despite its low price tag, this is a capable and fully featured tablet. The Apple A13 Bionic chip offers very good CPU and GPU performance and the large 10.2-inch Retina display is bright and crisp. It's a great option for school, work, or simply relaxing with your favorite movie, book, or streaming service.
2022 Apple iPad Pro 12.9" Mini-LED M2 for $999.99
The late-2022 Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the most powerful tablet available right now. Compared to the previous gen model, it has been upgraded with the M2 chip. The M2 chip offers about a 15% performance boost compared to the M1. The 12.9" size is the only iPad that boasts the gorgeous Mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion, Tru Tone, and P3 wide color. Charging is done through the universal USB Type-C connector.
2021 Apple iPad Mini 8.3" 64GB WiFi for $399.99
The iPad Mini may be the most diminutive tablet of the bunch, but that doesn't mean it's gimped in any way. Although it was released back in 2021, the still newest generation Apple iPad Mini is still more powerful than the new standard sized iPad that was release in late 2022. The iPad Mini features an 8.3" Liquid Retina display with True Tone and Wide Color, a very capable A15 Bionic processor, universal USB Type-C port for fast charging, and Apple Pencil 2 compatiblity. If you're looking for the most portable iPad, the iPad Mini is your pick.
2022 Apple iPad Air 10.9" 64GB WiFi for $559
The newest 5th generation Apple iPad Air was released in March of 2022 with a $599 MSRP. Yes it's substantially pricier than the original iPad, but it upgrades virtually every aspect of its hardware. It boasts a larger screen size (10.9" vs 10.2") with both True Tone and P3 wide color. It has the same powerful Apple M1 chip found in the 2021 iPad Pro. Despite the more powerful hardware, the iPad Air is roughly the same size as the 10.2-inch iPad thanks to the slimmer bezel and weighs less. There's even a universal USB Type-C port.
New 2022 Apple iPad 10.9" 64GB WiFi for $413
The latest 2022 Apple iPad had a price hike, from an MSRP of $329 for the 2021 model to an MSRP of $449 for the 2022 model, which was released at the end of October 2022. Fortunately, Amazon has the 2022 model for $413 today. The new iPad benefits from several upgrades, including a newer A14 Bionic chip, larger and nicer 10.9" display, a better camera, a fingerprint sensor, and the USB Type-C port now replacing the Lightning port.
