We've gathered together all of the best iPad deals right here so you can pay the lowest price for a brand-new slate. Apple's popular devices carry a hefty price tag but they are some of the best tablets you can buy. The good news is that there are many ways to save some cash as deals are available all the time. We've done the searching for you and have shared the best ones right here.

You can find the lowest prices for the standard iPad tablet, the premium and creative-focused iPad Pro, the portable iPad mini and the versatile iPad Air just below. While not everything is always discounted, there are regular opportunities to save on the majority of these most popular models - even more so if you can get access to the Apple student discount for further reductions.

Just be aware there are strong rumors that a new iPad Air and iPad Pro will launch in March. This has led to the biggest price cut yet on the current iPad Air in the US, so well worth considering if you want a high-performance tablet at a great price and aren't fussed about having the most up-to-date tech.

Do also check out the latest Apple promo codes or Best Buy discount codes in case there are ways to save even more money on your next tablet when buying from either store.

iPad deals of the week

Apple iPad 10.2 (2021): was $329.99 now $249 at Amazon
The iPad 10.2 is still available for its lowest price ever this week at Amazon. Apple's last-generation tablet may be slightly older tech, but the 10.2-inch Retina display and A13 Bionic chip ensure excellent picture quality and superior performance to this day. The entry-level slate can do it all without issue: whether that's browsing the net, streaming media, light work, or playing games. Ultimately, when it comes to powerful and affordable tablets that offer excellent value for money, it doesn't get better than the Apple iPad 10.2.

Apple iPad 10.9 (2022): $449$349 at Amazon

Apple iPad 10.9 (2022): was $449 now $349 at Amazon
This offer on Apple's newest entry-level iPad brings it down to the lowest price ever that we last saw at the start of the year. It's terrific value for money at this price if you need an all-around tablet. We said Apple's latest base-level tablet is a big upgrade over the previous generation model in our iPad 10.9 review, with a larger Liquid Retina display, a new A14 Bionic chip, improved cameras, USB-C support, and a sleek design.

Apple iPad mini (2021): $499$399.99 at Amazon

Apple iPad mini (2021): was $499 now $399.99 at Amazon
This discount brings the most recent iPad mini to within $20 of the record-low we saw in July last year. The much-improved 8.3-inch tablet delivers a similar performance to the last-generation iPad Air but in a much smaller form. There are also significant upgrades to the processing chip and cameras, as well as all-day battery life that make it a solid option for those that need a portable everyday tablet.

iPad 10.9 (2022)

Apple's new entry-level tablet is powerful but pricey

Weight: 477g | Dimensions: 248.8 x 179.5 x 7mm | OS: iPadOS 16 | Screen size: 10.9-inch | Resolution: 2160 x 1620 pixels | CPU: A14 Bionic chip | Storage: 64GB/256GB | microSD slot: No | Battery: Up to 22 hours | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 12MP ultrawide

New A13 Bionic chipset
Improved front camera
Often reduced by up to $30
No USB-C

As far as powerful everyday tablets go, the standard iPad has been one of the top choices out there for some time and is regularly featured on our list of the best tablets. The larger screen, sleeker design, upgraded cameras and USB-C charging are huge improvements, but it is such a huge jump in cost compared to the previous model that it does lose its value for money edge.

The 10th-generation iPad features a larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, the powerful A14 Bionic chip, improved cameras, USB-C support and more. It's priced at $449 / £499 / AU$749 for the standard 64GB option. That's $120 / £130 / AU$200 more than the previous generation version. 

You can also upgrade to a model with 256GB of storage for $599 / £679 / AU$999, but considering that's approaching the cost of an iPad Air, that's a hefty amount to pay for what is supposed to be pitched as Apple's entry-level tablet.

iPad 10.2 (2021)

The iPad that offers the best value for money

Weight: 485g | Dimensions: 248.9 x 172.7 x 5.1mm | OS: iPadOS | Screen size: 10.2-inch | Resolution: 2160 x 1620 pixels | CPU: A13 Bionic chip | Storage: 64/256GB | microSD slot: No | Battery: Up to 10 hours | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 12MP

New A13 Bionic chipset
Improved front camera
Often reduced by up to $30
No USB-C

The iPad 10.2 (2021) launched at $329/£319, which is around the same price as the previous model. Keep an eye out for discounts of up to $80 as we've seen that a number of times in recent months, though nothing has matched it in the UK just yet. There are sometimes discounts on the larger storage model, too, and the best we've seen is up to $50 off the usual price.

Even though it's older now, the 2021 iPad is absolutely worth it at that price, too. You get the capable A13 Bionic chip, which Apple says improves performance by up to 20% from the previous generation model. The display is very similar at 10.2 inches, but the TrueTone tech makes the screen easier to see in different lighting conditions.

The biggest upgrade comes in the new 12MP front camera, which also supports Apple's Center Stage feature to keep you in the middle of the frame during video calls. On the back, there's the same 8MP camera that's identical to what's found on last year's model.

Now that the 2020 version is discontinued and any existing stock is now sold out, your best option is to go for this version. Overall, you get plenty of value for money here, so anyone shopping on the cheaper end of the scale should go for this standard iPad 10.2 model.

iPad Pro deals

iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2022)

The best and most powerful iPad – but it's not cheap

Weight: 688g | Dimensions: 280.6 x 214.9 x 6.4mm | OS: iPadOS 16 | Screen size: 12.9-inch | Resolution: 2048 x 2732 pixels | CPU: Apple M2 | Storage: 128GB/256GB/512GB/1TB/2TB | Battery: Up to 10 hours | Rear camera: 12MP + 10MP + LiDAR | Front camera: 12MP

Up-to-date M2 Chip
Fantastic mini-LED display
Small storage options are pricey

The iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2022) currently sits at the top of our best iPad list. All the premium tech comes at a considerable cost, but it's easily the top choice for creative professionals today.

The biggest upgrade is the inclusion of the latest Apple M2 chip, which has previously only been available in high-end MacBooks to give the tablet a huge performance boost. On top of that, there's the slick and responsive 12.9-inch mini-LED display, good cameras and robust Apple Pencil support.

But it all comes back to that cost. The starting price is $1,099 / £1,249 / AU$1,899 for the 128GB version and goes all the way up to $2,199 / £2,499 / AU$3,829 for 2TB of storage - plus extra on top if you want 5G support, too. Given the tablet is so new we've seen very few deals so far outside of the big yearly sales events – and even then, it's been very small reductions of $100 / £50. Admittedly, it doesn't put much of a dent into the price, but at least it's something at this early stage in the life of the new iPad Pro.
