We typically only see about 10% off on iPads these days, and that's during a major sale. In fact, average discounts for most Apple products are about 7% to 9%. So, when you see the percentage discount drop more than 10%, you really ought to sit up and pay attention.

For anyone in need of a new iPad – whether that's for schoolwork or home use – Amazon's Prime Day sale has shaved a rather decent 20% off the RRP for the 2021 (or 9th generation) 10.2-inch iPad in the 64GB storage flavour. That drops the price down to SG$397 in silver, with the grey slightly more at SG$402.

If you want the 256GB version, that's now only SG$599 instead of the usual SG$735.80 in the grey for the Wi-Fi edition. Need the cellular option? It's also picked up a Prime Day discount, dropping to a neat SG$594 with 64GB of storage.

This is easily the best tablet out there right now, and thanks to these price cuts, they're slightly more affordable. So if you need an all-around streaming machine that can handle productivity work, this is an excellent deal to invest in.

While the 2021 iPad is the only Apple tablet to have scored a discount in this year's Prime Day sales so far, there's a variety of discounts across the entire Apple range on Amazon SG, including some iPhone 14 models.

9th-gen Apple iPad (64GB)

This is one of the best tablets on the market and was already an affordable choice before. But thanks to this 20% price drop, it's even cheaper to invest in. It comes with an A13 Bionic chip, a 10.2-inch Retina display, Wi-Fi connectivity, and 12MP front/8MP back camera as well. It did get a 21% price drop earlier in the sale, but has since jumped back up to only offer a 20% discount.

If you need the cellular option, then there's a rather steep jump in price for the 9th-generation iPad. Still, a 19% price drop for Prime Day makes it a little more accessible. Everything else is the same in terms of specs with the Wi-Fi model – 64GB of storage, an A13 Bionic chip, a 10.2-inch Retina display, Wi-Fi and Cellular connectivity, and 12MP front/8MP back camera..

If you're not looking for a tablet but want to check out the best deals on the Apple devices on offer through Amazon SG, we've rounded up the top discounts below, including the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the 2021 MacBook Pro.

So what's the benefit of an iPhone 14 Plus over the standard iPhone 14? Well, its larger size means your getting 6.7-inch display instead of the 6-inch screen in the smaller option, plus a larger battery without compromising on the quality of the iPhone 14 handset. The best deal on the iPhone 14 Plus is on the blue 128GB model, which has picked up a 19% discount, but the entire range of colours and storage sizes have scored deals.
