The iPad comes in a variety of sizes, each with unique features and varying price points. If you’re looking for a new tablet, we’ve rounded up the best iPad deals right here.

Best iPad deals

  1. 10.2-inch iPad deals

  3. iPad Mini deals
  4. 11-inch iPad Pro deals

You can also buy the iPad of your choice directly from Apple, but you can probably expect to pay full price. Outside of the refurbished section, Apple rarely runs top deals.

New iPads are rarely subject to big discounts, but we’ll keep this list updated whenever we get word of a hot sale.

 1. 10.2-inch iPad deals

The easiest place to start when you’re in the market for a new iPad is with the classic. The latest version of the original iPad, now called the New iPad, packs an A10 Fusion chip and up to 128GB of storage. You can also take your pick between Rose Gold, Space Gray, and the classic Silver.

The New iPad is best if you’re looking for a new tablet with a powerful chip, ample storage, and a large screen but you don’t need the high-end bells and whistles that come with the Pro model.

You can look at a few options via the widget below.

 2. 10.5-inch iPad Air deals

The iPad Air is more powerful than the New iPad. It swaps the A10 chip for the more powerful A12 Bionic chip and bumps the screen up to 10.5 inches. Despite improved internals and boosted size, the iPad Air remains wafer-thin at 6.1mm and weighs 1lb.

The iPad Air is essentially an amplified version of the New iPad, so it’s perfect if you want the extra power to get through the day.

 3. iPad Mini deals

Some people prefer a smaller tablet, and Apple created the iPad Mini to fill that niche. The iPad Mini keeps the A12 Bionic chip and the Retina display, but it shrinks everything into a compact 7.9-inch screen. It’s the ideal iPad if your luggage space is limited

You can definitely consider the iPad Mini if you want the smallest and lightest option on the market. Here are a few of your best bets:

 4. 11-inch iPad Pro deals

The final option if you’re looking for a brand-new iPad is the iPad Pro. If you want the cream of the crop in terms of cameras and processing power, the iPad Pro is the one. It features the newest A12Z Bionic chip, dual rear cameras, and the slimmest all-around bezels on an iPad.

The newest iPad Pro is as close as it gets to a tablet that can replace your laptop, so it’s the option to check out if you plan to use your iPad for work.

If you want to maximize your size along with your specs, the larger iPad Pro is the route to take. It features the same specs including the new 10MP ultra-wide camera and 12MP wide camera with a LiDAR scanner. The larger size and slightly higher starting price are the main differences when it comes to making your decision.

You can go for the larger iPad Pro if you truly want to replace your laptop without sacrificing too much of the screen size. Here are the best deals you can choose from:
