To complement an 11-inch iPad Pro or iPad Air, Apple's Magic Keyboard offers a smart combination of keyboard, trackpad and tilting stand to transform an iPad into a pseudo computer. It's an essential accessory for people who want to be productive on Apple's tablets, but it's a pricey outlay on top of your tablet, so this $75 saving is a deal not to be missed.

Magic Keyboard Folio for iPad:$249$169 at Walmart

Magic Keyboard Folio for iPad: was $249 now $169 at Walmart
Users of the 10th-gen standard iPad can turn it into a bit of a writing machine by adding the Magic Keyboard Folio. It provides a solid keyboard with a cover as well, and has a trackpad, and at this discounted price of just $169 it's a lot more affordable than usual.

Apple iPad 10.2 2021 (64GB): £369£299 at Very

Apple iPad 10.2 2021 (64GB): was £369 now £299 at Very
Not the lowest price ever for this iPad, but enough of a discount to make this entry-level iPad worth your consideration. The savings are a good amount to invest in a selection of App Store apps and games. 

Apple iPad mini (2021): £569£519 at Amazon

Apple iPad mini (2021): was £569 now £519 at Amazon
A saving of £42 isn't mind-blowing, but it's still a handy discount on an already keenly-priced iPad. The refreshed design holds a great Retina display and a powerful A15 Bionic chip, which is still plenty powerful nearly two years later. As Apple has seemingly forgotten about the iPad mini, don't expect to see discounts that beat this one. 

5th-gen Apple iPad Air (64GB):£699£628 at Very

5th-gen Apple iPad Air (64GB): was £699 now £628 at Very
This is one of the best tablets on the market, though its price pre-sale may have kept people away. But thanks to this price drop this is a great tablet to invest in. It has a 10.9-inch liquid retina display, 64GB, Wi-Fi 6, 12MP front/12MP back camera, and more.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2022): £1,249£1,179 at Amazon

Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2022): was £1,249 now £1,179 at Amazon
Even discounted, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is hardly cheap in the UK. But you are paying for one of the very best tablet experiences around. You can also save £110 on the 512GB model and £100 on the 1TB version. And as we don't expect the discounts to get much more generous than this, an iPad Pro with £55 to £110 shaved off its price tag isn't to be sniffed at.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2022): £1,429£1,328 at Very

Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2022): was £1,429 now £1,328 at Very
Over at Very the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with 128GB of storage has been cut by a decent £99. It's not exactly cheap but that's still a nice little discount on the latest and greatest iPad.

Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2021) |AU$2,999AU$2,399 at Amazon

Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2021) | AU$2,999 AU$2,399 at Amazon (save AU$600)

Need a bit more surface area for sketching or taking notes? The 2021 Apple iPad Pro comes with a big 12.9-inch screen, so you’ll never miss a beat whether you’re working away on your new artwork or streaming a movie. While the price is still astronomical, a AU$600 saving is still worth considering if this configuration suits your needs.

2022 Apple iPad 10.9 (Wi-Fi, 64GB) |AU$749AU$647 on Amazon

2022 Apple iPad 10.9 (Wi-Fi, 64GB) | AU$749 AU$647 on Amazon (save AU$102)

There's a little over AU$100 off on the 2022 (10th gen) Apple iPad 10.9-inch base model with just Wi-Fi connectivity and 64GB storage, making it the best value option right now. It's available in some fun colours, all at the same 14% discount on Amazon. We don't think this offer will last long, so don't dally on this one.

The Wi-Fi+Cellular 64GB option also gets 10% off its RRP, down to AU$897 from AU$999.

Apple 11-inch iPad Pro (2021) | M1 / Wi-Fi / 2TB |AU$2,849AU$2,114 on Amazon

Apple 11-inch iPad Pro (2021) | M1 / Wi-Fi / 2TB | AU$2,849 AU$2,114 on Amazon (save AU$735)
It's incredibly rare to see a 26% discount on an iPad... or any Apple product, really, so if you have the change to spare, this 11-inch, M1-powered slate could double up as your laptop if you get yourself a keyboard folio for it. It could be argued that its double use is value for money at this price. Plenty of storage, a beautiful screen, great cameras plus a Lidar scanner, there's a lot you're getting for your money.

2021 Apple 11-inch iPad Pro (M1, Wi-Fi+Cellular, 1TB) |AU$2,499AU$1,999.20 on Amazon

2021 Apple 11-inch iPad Pro (M1, Wi-Fi+Cellular, 1TB) | AU$2,499 AU$1,999.20 on Amazon (save AU$499.80)

The 2TB model listed above might be overkill for most users, but 1TB could be useful to many. So it's good news that there's 20% off the asking price on Amazon right now. Note that this is the LTE version, so you can have it connected to a mobile network, which is handy if you will be using it for work. The offer is also only on the Silver colourway.

Apple 10.2-inch iPad (2021) | A13 / Wi-Fi / 64GB | AU$549AU$449 at The Good Guys

Apple 10.2-inch iPad (2021) | A13 / Wi-Fi / 64GB | AU$549 AU$449 at The Good Guys (save AU$100)

Discounts on this 64GB version of Apple's 9th-generation 10.2-inch iPad aren't too uncommon, and usually hover around this AU$450 mark. In fact, its only been significantly cheaper once before, when it was AU$382 at Amazon earlier this year. That deal was so good we suspect it was a pricing error and thus won't be seen again anytime soon, so this is about as good as you'll get if you're after a 'cheap' new iPad.

Apple 10.2-inch iPad (2021) | A13 / Wi-Fi / 256GB | AU$799AU$697 at Amazon

Apple 10.2-inch iPad (2021) | A13 / Wi-Fi / 256GB | AU$799 AU$697 at Amazon (save AU$102)

Fair warning: this model iPad was reduced down to AU$599 at Mwave for this year's Black Friday, but it's since sold out. If you missed that deal, Amazon's is the next best option. The 10.2-inch Retina display will suit most people for watching movies or general web surfing, and while Apple's new M silicon powers the latest range of iPads, the A13 Bionic is still no slouch. This is still a very capable tablet, despite being a couple of years old.

When will the best Black Friday iPad deals start in 2023?

November 24 was the official Black Friday day, and it was on that day that you could find some serious bargain prices for iPads. But right now you can still score iPad deals with $100 /£100 sliced off their ticket prices, all thanks to the move to Cyber Monday deals

Given Apple products can sell out very fast when they get a price cut, we suggest that if you see a Black Friday iPad deal you like, go for it rather than hold out for November 24. 

Where can I find the best Black Friday iPad deals?

We've listed a selection of retailers that we recommend you check out for the best iPad deals across the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales period. These are worth checking out right now to get a feel of what iPads are on offer and scout for early price cuts.

What Black Friday iPad deals do we expect in 2023?

Some of the biggest Black Friday Apple deals and Cyber Monday sales tend to be had with the iPad Pro models. With the excellent iPad Pro 12.9-inch starting at $1,099 / £1,249, we can expect to see deals that cut anything from $200 / £200 to $400 / £400 off the original ticket price. Usually, the biggest discounts can be found on the highest-spec iPad Pros, which tend to be pretty expensive when at full price. 

The iPad Air can offer some of the best deals and bang for your buck, thanks to having potentially hundreds of dollars or pounds cut from the original price. While the deals might not slice off as much as iPad Pro deals, a drop of $100 / £100 for an already keenly priced tablet would be well worth checking out. 

Cut-price iPad mini models are also sure to pop up alongside discounted 10.9-inch iPads. But the savings on these models don't tend to be as generous as those on the iPad Pro or iPad Air. 

With that in mind, we'd suggest keeping an eye out for deals on the iPad Pro models with the M2 chip and the M1-equipped iPad Air.
