After a good tablet deal? Whether you're looking for a gift for a loved one, or a convenient touchscreen tablet to take on the go, the Cyber Monday sales running right now may be the time to do it.

Tablets offer an ideal compromise between portability and functionality: most of the bells and whistles of a netbook laptop, but with the form factor and touch interface of a premium smartphone.

Just because Black Friday has been and gone, doesn't mean you've missed out on a great deal. This weekend has seen many great deals staying live, while there will be more bargains continue to roll in right up until the clock strikes midnight on November 26 – and possibly even beyond.

Cyber Monday iPads: what to expect

We're covering you with all the best iPad deals and Android tablet deals you could want during Black Friday 2018, searching all retailers to see what's being offered and whether its offers a real discount.

That said, while Black Friday iPad discounts are almost guaranteed, don't hold out for huge price cuts. It's highly unlikely we'll see 40% or higher discounts, but considering Apple's devices rarely get price cuts a little off is better than nothing off.

Black Friday 2018 this year lands on November 23, with Cyber Monday set for November 26 - but in reality you'll have much longer than just those two days to nab yourself a great tablet deal.

We're hoping for some juicy iPad Black Friday deals to come direct from Apple as well, as the firm has already teased that it will have offers on its products between November 23 and November 26. 

We'll update this page with all the best iPad Black Friday deals Apple has to offer as soon as we know. For now, enjoy the tablet Black Friday deals we've already found.

How to get the best iPads on Black Friday / Cyber Monday

Research and patience are always key when it comes to any Black Friday or Cyber Monday purchase, so make sure you've done your homework before you click that buy button.

First up though, set your budget. How much money do you have to spend? The last thing you want after Black Friday is for the dust to settle and for you to realise that you've perhaps treated yourself (or your loved ones) a little too much.

Next up, decide which iPad (or iPads) you want to keep an eye on for a Black Friday or Cyber Monday deal. 

Apple has a wide range of tablets, some with very similar (and even identical) names, so it pays to be a savvy shopper who's familiar with the various iPad generations and specs. There's nothing worse than thinking you've bagged yourself the iPad bargain of the year only to find it's not the model you thought you'd bought.

A couple more things to note when it comes to preparing for Black Friday iPad deals is storage and connectivity. 

The cheapest iPads will offer the least internal storage (although Apple's entry-level storage options are now very strong) and only Wi-Fi connectivity.

If you want/need more storage space and LTE connectivity for internet on the move (just like your smartphone) you'll need to pay quite a lot more. The latter will also need a separate data SIM contract as well, which is an additional expense for you to consider.

Also make a note of how much the iPads you're interested in are at the moment, from Apple's own site as well as a range of retailers such as Amazon, John Lewis and AO.com. 

This will give you a clearer picture of just how good the savings are when they roll in, but of course we'll be here to help you find the very best iPad Black Friday deals. We're in this together, let's get you a great deal!

Best Black Friday iPads from last year

iPad 9.7-inch 32GB: down to around £300 (was £339)
It was less than a year old at the time, so we weren't expecting a discount on the iPad 9.7. That's why it was such a surprise when we started to see discounts appear last year - but it's been replaced this year, as you'll see.

iPad Pro 10.5 64GB: down to £567.99 (was £619) from Amazon
A saving of over £50 on any iPad is always good news, and this Black Friday iPad Pro 10.5 deal from Amazon was hot last year on one of our top tablets, one perfect for the power user.

iPad Pro 12.9 256GB: down to £869 (was £919) from John Lewis
Apple's biggest iPad also got a discount, and £50 from John Lewis was another top Black Friday iPad deal in 2017. The 512GB slate also got a similar discount, but 256GB will be more than enough space for most, unless you're doing tonnes of video editing.

iPad Mini 4 128GB: down to £394 (was £419) from AO
The iPad Mini 4 offers up a top iPad experience in a much more compact form factor and it dropped below the magic £400 mark with this Black Friday 2017 iPad deal - that said, it's a long way from Apple's biggest push and stocks could be more scarce.
