It’s a great week for iPad deals. After a brief hiatus, we’re seeing a new wave of iPad deals at Amazon. The retailer has numerous models at all-time price lows. In fact, every iPad model is currently on sale.
Just remember, iPads are always in high demand, so as a result they tend to sell out fast. That means the base 10.9-inch iPad can be in stock in the morning and sold out by the afternoon.
As a result, we’re recommending you snatch up any iPad deals you see right now before models run out of stock. So what are the best cheap iPad deals this moment? We’re here to show you the best Apple deals available. Also, make sure to check out our guide to the best AirPods sales and MacBook deals.

Although it received a considerable $120 price increase from its predecessor, it’s now on sale. In our iPad 2022 review, we said it delivers almost everything you could want in a modern table. Best Buy offers the same price.

The Editor’s Choice 2021 iPad mini features an all new thin-bezel design, a larger 8.3.inch Liquid Retina display, A15 Bionic CPU, 12MP wide camera, and USB-C connectivity.

The 2022 iPad Air is powered by Apple’s M1 processor, which features an 8-core CPU that delivers up to 60% faster performance than the previous-gen iPad Air.

Best iPad deals accessories
Apple Smart Folio for iPad Air: was $79 now $63 @ Amazon

Apple Pencil (2nd Generation): was $129 now $89 @ Amazon
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the 2nd Generation Apple Pencil. This great stylus is perfect for taking notes, drawing, and editing. If you’re an artist, using an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil can be just as effective as a high-end graphics tablet for a much lower price. The matte finish, weighted feel and wireless charging also make it a great upgrade over the 1st Generation Apple Pencil.
ZAGG iPad cases/keyboards: up to 40% off @ Amazon
Amazon is taking up to 40% off select ZAGG iPad cases and keyboards. After discount, prices start as low as $39. It’s one of the best iPad deals we’ve seen on these accessories.

Logitech Combo Touch iPad Case:
$199 $163 @ Amazon
This is our favorite iPad case. It’s got an outstanding feature set, with a built-in keyboard and trackpad and dedicated shortcut buttons. It’s pricy, but that’s less of a problem now that it’s on sale. This deal is for the 11-inch iPad Pro case.
Best iPad deals on refurbs
Refurb Apple iPads: from $419 @ Apple
Low inventory: Refurb iPads make for great iPad deals. We especially like the refurb iPads from the Apple Store because they come with the same 1-year warranty you’d get from a new factory-sealed iPad. Currently, refurb iPads deals at the Apple Store start at $419.

How I find the best iPad deals
I’ve been tracking iPad deals for over a decade. I’ve purchased multiple iPads as gifts and I’ve also owned various iPads since the launch of the original iPad tablet. (I currently own the iPad mini 5th gen). As a result, I can spot a good iPad deal from an ordinary sale. I also know where and when you’ll find best iPad deals.
Generally speaking, Amazon and Best Buy are my go-to retailers for iPad deals. No other retailer comes close to offering the prices you’ll find at Amazon and Best Buy. Amazon is usually the better retailer as Best Buy doesn’t always have iPads on sale. However, the retailers tend to price match each other. So if you see one iPad on sale at Best Buy, chances are high Amazon is also offering that price (or will in the very near future).
One of my favorite ways to save money on your next iPad purchase is to trade-in your old model. You can usually get $50+ for your old iPad from the likes of the Apple Store or Best Buy. You can then use that credit to buy any new iPad of your choice.
Note: iPad deals on new models can usually be found within a month of the tablet’s release, sometimes faster. If you can afford to wait a few weeks, you can save from $20 to $50 off. (Amazon is usually the first retailer to discount newly announced iPads).
Which iPad should I buy?
Not sure why iPad is right for you? Currently, these are the models that Apple offers:
10.2-inch iPad ($329): It may be dated, but the 2021 iPad (9th gen) is still a very capable iPad. It can be purchased at most retailers — including Apple — and it’s frequently found on sale for $279. It has a 10.2-inch display, A13 Bionic CPU, and 8MP (f/2.4) rear camera and 12MP (f/2.4) front camera. The mainstream tablet is not only the most affordable iPad, but it’s also the best value for your dollar. It can also be used for sketching and drawing, thanks to its Apple Pencil (1st gen) support. Check out our iPad 2021 review to see our full thoughts on Apple’s budget tablet.
10.9-inch iPad ($449): The current-gen, entry-level iPad debuted in 2022. It features a 10.9-inch display and Apple’s A14 Bionic CPU. Unlike its predecessor, you get a 12MP (f/1.8) rear camera and USB-C port. It supports Magic Keyboard Folio as well as the first-gen Apple Pencil.
8.3-inch iPad mini ($499): True to its name, the 2021 iPad mini 6 is the smallest tablet in Apple’s lineup. But don’t let its size fool you — the iPad mini is one powerful tablet. The 2021 iPad mini features an all new thin-bezel design, a larger 8.3.inch Liquid Retina display, A15 Bionic CPU, 12MP wide camera, and USB-C connectivity. It also works with the Apple Pencil 2.
10.9-inch iPad Air ($599): The iPad Air is the tablet you pick when you want more horsepower than what you’ll get from Apple’s entry-level iPads. It packs Apple’s powerful M1 chip, a 12MP front camera with Center Stage, and 5G connectivity (optional). In our iPad Air 2022 review, we said the Editor’s Choice tablet sets a new standard for ultra-thin tablets and is one of the best tablets you can buy. Although it costs $599, it can be frequently found at $551 or $499.
If you want unrivaled power, you’ll want to check out the iPad Pros. The latter come in 11-inch and 12.9-inch flavors and use Apple’s M1 CPU.

Guide to finding the best iPad deals
Where to find the best deals: Generally speaking, Amazon tends to offer the best iPad deals. On any given day of the week you’ll typically find discounts that run the gamut from $50 to $200 off. Other retailers like Best Buy, B&H Photo, and Walmart tend to offer similar prices. However, it’s rare that they undercut Amazon’s iPad deals.
Check all colors: Amazon tends to give different color iPads different prices. For instance, the base iPad 32GB tablet in black might sell for a discounted $299 price, but the white model might sell at full price. So when looking for iPad deals at Amazon, it’s worth checking various colors for the lowest price.
Check older iPad models: Apple’s newest iPads pack the most power. However, oftentimes previous-gen iPads still pack enough muscle for your everyday needs. They can also be purchased for a lot less than any current-gen iPad. So it’s always worth checking older iPad models (when available) to save some extra cash.

The Best iPad (2023): Which Apple Tablets to Buy or Avoid
If you’re purchasing a new iPad, there are a variety of accessories you can buy to help you get the most out of your tablet. Below, we’ve highlighted some of our favorites, all of which you can find in our Best iPad Accessories guide.
Zugu Case for $50: This is our favorite folio case for the iPad for multiple reasons. It’s not only durable (complete with a rigid bumper), but it has a magnetized cover that stays shut and a flap that allows you to position the screen at eight different angles. The case is magnetic too, allowing you to stick it on the fridge securely. It’s also reasonably priced, comes in an array of colors, and has a spot for your Apple Pencil.
Logitech Combo Touch (10th-gen) for $160: The Combo Touch comes with a built-in keyboard, trackpad, and kickstand, making it ideal for getting work done on your iPad. It’s also detachable, so you can easily remove the keyboard when you don’t need it. It connects via Apple’s Smart Connector, meaning you never need to tinker with Bluetooth or bother charging it.
Apple Magic Trackpad 2 for $129: For a spacious trackpad, the Magic Trackpad 2 is a great choice. Instead of physical buttons, it has Force Touch sensors where you can feel different levels of pressure on the pad. With support for various iPadOS gestures, you won’t have to touch the screen as much. It automatically pairs with your iPad via Bluetooth and recharges with the Lightning port.
Logitech K380 Bluetooth Keyboard for $40: If you prefer an external keyboard, it’s hard to go wrong with the Logitech K380. It’s lightweight and portable and can be connected to up to three devices via Bluetooth (with dedicated buttons to switch between them). The keyboard is powered by AAA batteries, which lasted us around four months, so you don’t have to worry about carrying a charger around.
Apple Pencil (2nd-gen) for $129: Those using an iPad for drawing, note taking, or marking up documents should consider an Apple Pencil (2nd-gen). It glides across the display with low latency, is great for navigating iPadOS, and has handwriting support in multiple search fields so you don’t have to use the keyboard to type. It’s compatible with the iPad Air (4th gen and later), iPad Mini (6th gen), iPad Pro 11-inch (1st gen and later), and the 12.9-inch (3rd gen and later).
Twelve South HoverBar Duo 2.0 for $80: The HoverBar serves two purposes. You can mount it to the side of your bed, kitchen counter, or shelf (to view content comfortably and hands-free) or you can use the included stand at your desk. With the 2nd-gen version, you can now remove the arm from the clamp and attach it directly to the stand—making it easier to swap between both modes.
Nimble Champ Pro Portable Charger for $63 (10,000mAh): If you mainly use your iPad on the go—and are constantly looking for a wall outlet—a portable charger is essential. This one from Nimble supports USB Power Delivery and has an output of 60 watts (we charged the 12. 9-inch iPad Pro with enough juice left to charge other gadgets). With a USB-C port and USB-A port, you can charge two devices simultaneously.
Twelve South StayGo Mini USB-C Hub for $60: Regardless of the iPad model, ports are limited. This hub from Twelve South has an 85-watt USB-C port with passthrough charging, a USB-A port, an HDMI, and a headphone jack. If you have trouble fitting it on an iPad with a case, the included female USB-C-to-male-USB-C cable will fix this.
review of the new tablet from Apple
In the fall of 2022, Apple introduced several new devices (including several variations of the iPhone 14). At the same time, the dates for the launch of new products for sale were announced. That’s only if some of the devices were presented in the best traditions of Apple (with maximum publicity), then some new items decided not to advertise too much. The new version of the Apple tablet, the iPad 10, was among such novelties. In the case of this product, the manufacturer limited itself to a modest text presentation on the product page in the company store, so many Internet users learned about the start of sales of the mentioned equipment from third-party sources.
However, despite the lack of a full-fledged presentation, the iPad 10 came to the attention of many bloggers, so over the past month (sales of the iPad 10 started on October 26), a lot of reviews of this device have appeared on the Web. At the same time, most experts gave the new product very modest ratings, complaining about the inconvenience of the tablet and the lack of significant differences between the iPad 10 and the iPad 9. To prove this, we prepared our own review of the iPad 10, in which we assessed the features of the device as objectively as possible, and also analyzed whether it is worth buying the iPad 10 in 2022 or better to give preference to alternative variations of tablets from Apple or other brands. A video was attached at the end of the article, which provides an alternative review of the iPad 10 and its partial comparison with the iPad 9(previous tablet model in the same series).

Characteristics of the Apple iPad 10
The reviewed tablet is presented in four variations, differing in the amount of internal memory (there are versions of 64 and 256 GB) and the absence / presence of a cellular function with 5G support. That is, in fact, Apple iPad 10 64GB, Apple iPad 10 64GB 5G, Apple iPad 10 256GB and Apple iPad 10 256GB 5G are available to users. Non-5G versions don’t have cellular coverage, but these tablets are much cheaper, so it definitely makes sense to buy them.
Other significant features of the Apple iPad 10 are shown in the image. We recommend that you familiarize yourself, and only then proceed to reading the main part of the review, where we examined in more detail the design and functionality of the iPad 10 tablet. 002 The device comes in a large white packaging, on the front side of which the tablet itself is depicted with a plain picture on the splash screen. The standard equipment of the device includes the 10th generation Apple iPad itself, a charging cable (USB-C on both sides), a 20 W power supply and accompanying documentation.
As for Apple, the equipment is more than chic. In particular, buyers of these products will not have to separately purchase a power supply, as, for example, buyers of the iPhone 14 Pro have to do. It is also worth noting that the tablet uses a USB-C port to charge (instead of Lightning). Many users will definitely be pleased with this alignment.
Apple iPad 10 generation design
x180x7 mm and weight 477 g. Metal case. Among the design features, it is worth noting the relatively narrow bezels around the screen. The edges are rounded at the edges and very pleasant to the touch. The functional elements of the tablet are as follows:
- on top of the speakers and the power button with a built-in fingerprint scanner;
- bottom speakers and USB-C connector;
- on the left is a connector for attaching a keyboard;
- right volume keys.
The iPad 10 does not have a wired headphone jack (high-quality speakers and modern Bluetooth for connecting wireless headphones partly compensate for this shortcoming). The Home button is also missing. Cameras are available, of course. The main camera lens is located in the upper left corner of the tablet cover. The front camera is built into the screen (located in the center of the top of the screen when placed in a horizontal position).
iPad 10 comes in four colors – silver, pink, blue and yellow. Cases are available in hundreds of models (and in the near future the range of cases will probably grow), although they need to be ordered separately.
iPad 10th generation screen (264 PPI). Despite the reduced bezels, the screen still occupies about 80% of the body area. The maximum brightness indicator reaches 500 nits, which is quite enough for comfortable use of the tablet indoors and outdoors. Although there is no anti-reflective coating here, so using the tablet in an open area in sunny weather is still not very convenient.
The color reproduction here is quite good. For professional work with graphics, this tablet was not originally intended, but for everything else, the display capabilities will be more than enough.
iPad 10 tablet performance
4 graphics cores), as well as 4 GB of RAM . It’s a little better than it was on the iPad 9, but there are no significant differences in terms of performance of these models.
Almost all popular applications and games (except the most demanding games) work perfectly on the tablet. Heating at full load is present, but does not cause much discomfort. The tablet is running iPadOS 16. There were no crashes, lags or freezes during testing.
Sound and communications iPad 10
The tablet is equipped with stereo speakers. The sound is quite clear and loud, and the sound quality is really better than on previous versions of the iPad. The tablet is definitely suitable for watching movies, listening to music and chatting online (and also for talking over a cellular network if you purchase an iPad 10 5G).
The set of communications is quite good. The basic version of the tablet (without 5G) supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 technologies. You can connect to other devices via the USB-C port using a proprietary or third-party cable. The iPad 5G variant additionally supports cellular communications, as well as basic GPS and GLONASS functions.
It is also possible to connect the Magic Keyboard Folio magnetic keyboard (the connection is made through the connector on the tablet body). The option is useful and convenient. Confuses only the cost of the keyboard. In America, it costs $249. In Russia it is much more expensive.
Apple iPad 10 generation cameras On the main camera, you can shoot video in resolution up to 4K (60 FPS), on the front camera – up to Full HD (60 FPS). In terms of photo and video quality, everything is quite good, although this tablet (like most of its analogues) is not particularly suitable for professional photo and video shooting. The same smartphones from the middle price category often do better.
Autonomy Apple iPad 10 generation
The built-in 28.6 Wh battery is responsible for the autonomy of the tablet. This is less than in the iPad 9, but according to the assurances of the developers, the iPad 10 does not affect the duration of the work. In fact, a full battery charge is enough for 9-10 hours of video viewing or 6-8 hours of gaming. If you use the tablet only for less demanding tasks (such as surfing the Internet without turning on the video), the charge can last more than 15 hours.
The 10th generation Apple iPad is charging, as previously mentioned, via USB-C. For this purpose, you can use the supplied power supply or connect the tablet to a computer or other device that supports the function of charging external devices.
Should I buy an Apple iPad 10 generation
Frankly speaking, there is not much point in buying an iPad 10. In terms of functionality, it differs slightly from the previous version (yes, more powerful components are installed, but in fact the difference in performance is almost imperceptible), so in most cases it is more logical to buy iPad 9.
