We typically see some decent Prime Day deals on Apple devices, but this year's Apple Prime Day deals are legitimately impressive, with several lowest-price-ever discounts on recent releases like iPads, Apple Watches, and MacBooks.

Out of those, this amazing deal on an iPad Air (2020) on Amazon US should get your immediate attention. You'll save $79 on the 64GB iPad Air with Wi-Fi ($519.99) or 64GB Cellular ($649.99), depending on whether you're more of a homebody or world traveler. Some color options are already selling out though, so act fast.

What's impressive is, even on day 2 of Prime Day, Amazon is taking more money off, so you can get the brand-new 11-inch iPad Pro 2021 for even less - now $100 off, rather than the $50 of yesterday.

We've also seen a few (admittedly smaller) price drops int the UK as well, so be ready to get your hands on a top-end iPad if you've been waiting for some time to upgrade.

The Apple iPad Air (2020) doesn’t bring anything revolutionary to Apple’s tablet range, but a lot of the features that were previously exclusive to the iPad Pro range have trickled down to this far more affordable, and therefore more attractive, device.

From the screen to the audio, to the processing and the camera, everything about the iPad Air (2020) is a cut above what came before and even in 2021, it's a fantastic tablet option – and that's why it's number four on our best tablets list.

11-inch iPad Pro (2021): $799.00

11-inch iPad Pro (2021): $799.00 $699.00 at Amazon
Save $100 - 
This is the best deal Amazon has offered on this 11-inch tablet, which was released earlier this year, and while it lacks the high-end screen of the 12.9-inch model, it's still got a cracking internal spec list and uses the new M1 chipset too. It's just dropped $50 off too.

If you want the best iPad today and don't mind paying a premium price for it, the iPad Pro 2021 is undoubtedly an amazing piece of machinery, and a slight discount makes the price easier to bear. 

With its ultra-fast M1 chipset, attractive 2048 x 2732 Mini LED screen, and useful accessories like the Apple Pencil (although you have to pay a pretty big amount for the privilege), this is a legitimate tool for productivity and a great way to relax and stream.

The new 11-inch iPad Pro is less than two months old, but it's already cheaper than ever with this £20 discount. While it is a saving, it's not the cheapest we've seen it - but discounts this early are still rather rare in the product life cycle.

£1,019.99 at Amazon

2021 iPad Pro (11-inch, 512GB): £1,049 £1,019.99 at Amazon
And if you want that extra storage, you'll also get a discount of £40 off the iPad Pro's £1,050 normal price. It's nearing the £1,000 mark here, and it's unlikely we'll see any better deals than this over the period of Prime Day.

New Apple iPad 2020 (Wi-Fi, 32GB): £329

New Apple iPad 2020 (Wi-Fi, 32GB): £329 £309 at Amazon
The new iPad for 2020 has been surprisingly tightly priced during previous sales periods like Black Friday. The biggest discount, until now, has been £12 but now we've seen £20 off the 32GB version of the tablet.

New Apple iPad 2020 (Wi-Fi, 128GB): £429

New Apple iPad 2020 (Wi-Fi, 128GB): £429 £414 at Amazon
Looking for more storage on your iPad? We don't blame you, and there's also a discount on that bringing the price of the slate lower than its normal price. This isn't such a big price drop, but it may be a better option for some people.

New Apple iPad 2020 (Wi-Fi + LTE, 32GB): £459

New Apple iPad 2020 (Wi-Fi + LTE, 32GB): £459 £444 at Amazon
If you need LTE service on your iPad, you'll find this is one of the best options for you and there's a discount on Amazon right now. Again, this isn't as cheap as the standard model but it'll be a good price for some.
