Memorial Day weekend typically brings with it a host of Memorial Day sales on products ranging from wireless headphones to mattresses, but even top-of-the-range Apple devices are making the cut in this year’s crop of deals. 

Memorial Day itself falls on Monday, May 29, but we’re already seeing a steady stream of early Apple Memorial Day sales emerging at retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and Apple directly, with iPads, in particular, proving the subject of some stellar discounts. 

Amazon is already offering its lowest-ever price on the iPad 10.9 (2022) – our pick for the best all-around iPad money can buy in 2023 – now on sale for $399 (down from $449). The larger 256GB model has also been discounted from $599 to $549, while our pick for the best iPad, period – the iPad Pro 12.9 (2022) – has likewise been discounted from $1,099 to $1,049 at Amazon. 

But that’s not all! If you’re after a more affordable model, the 9th-generation iPad – the iPad 10.2 (2021) – has received the biggest discount of the lot. You can currently pick up the 64GB model at Amazon for just $269.99 (down from $329) or the larger 256GB model for $399 (down from $479)

Apple's 10th-generation iPad is now available for its lowest-ever price at Amazon. With this tablet, Apple successfully migrated the base iPad from its classic, first-gen Air looks to an iPad Pro-influenced design, and the result is a high-quality, versatile device that will satisfy the broadest set of users, from fun-lovers and content-consumers to those looking to get some work done.

If you're looking for a cheap iPad ahead of Memorial Day, Apple's 9th-generation iPad is on sale for an almost-record-low price of $269 (it was a touch cheaper in March). While this isn't the speediest tablet in the iPad range, a decent screen, quality design and a relatively powerful chip make this the iPad that suits most people's needs best. For streaming, shopping, and doing a few light-touch tasks, this is a great option, especially given today's $60 discount.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2022 (128GB): $1,099$1,049 at Amazon

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2022 (128GB): $1,099 $1,049 at Amazon
The 128GB version of Apple's latest iPad Pro – aka the best iPad money can buy in 2023 – is now on sale at Amazon for $1,049. Sure, that's not a significant discount on the tablet's original price, but this is the crème de la crème of Apple's iPad offering, meaning it rarely sees itself discounted to anything lower than $1,099. If you just want to watch movies and video chat with friends, the Pro is serious overkill, but if you're after the best of the best, this is it.
