Regardless of whether you're stuck for that perfect last-minute Christmas gift or looking to treat yourself to some premium tech, now's a great time to consider picking up an Apple iPad.

Shop more last-minute deals at Target

Over at Target, you can currently buy several models at either record-low prices or prices that are just as good as the ones featured on Black Friday last month. Even better still, you can also get one in time for Christmas - if you order quickly. 

For those on a budget, consider picking up the latest Apple iPad 10.9 for a record-low of $349 (was $449), a superb price for this great everyday slate. Even cheaper still is the slightly older Apple 10.2 for $249.99 (was $329.99), although we did see this one for $20 cheaper on Black Friday.

If you're a little more flush with cash, you can get the excellent iPad Air for $499 (was $599) or the high-end iPad Pro 11 for just $749 (was $799). Both these premium tablets are a little on the pricey end for a Christmas gift, but Target's current iPad deals bring them right down to their lowest-ever prices, respectively.

Compared to the 2021 iPad, the latest entry-level tablet comes with a larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, Apple's powerful A14 Bionic chip for laptop-like speed, upgraded cameras with 4K video, and all-day battery life.

We've briefly seen the latest iPad mini hit as low as $379 this past year, but only on one rare occasion. At $399, it's still a great buy and well worth snapping up at Target if you'd prefer a smaller 8-inch form factor. Despite it's size, it's a great little tablet with a neat design and plenty of power for every day tasks and gaming.

The iPad Air (2022) offers many of the same features as the much pricier iPad Pro, but at a fraction of the cost. It has an attractive 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with True Tone support, which means it looks good in all lighting conditions – including outdoors. Coupled with the Apple Pencil (2nd generation) and Magic Keyboard, it's a truly flexible device that can easily handle schoolwork, note-taking, and drawing, as well as streaming videos.

The latest iPad Pro is expensive but worth it, especially at this record-low price at Target. In our iPad Pro 12.9-inch review, we found the current model doesn't offer a huge upgrade but it does add more power to an already powerful tablet. Still, as a portable device for creatives, it's unbeatable right now thanks to the gorgeous screen, speedy M2 chip and a vast range of apps.
