If you've been meaning to pick up an iPad Cyber Monday deal, you better act fast – Cyber Monday is now officially over, and we're in the last leg of the deals weekend. Expect to see most of these deals finish in the coming days and most likely, few hours.
The best iPad deal right now that has continued past Cyber Monday is the iPad Air 4 (new model) already discounted to $569. That means the sales are certainly continuing, but probably only until the big retailers run out of stock.
We've seen some hefty iPad discounts this year, and these are continuing well through Cyber Monday and beyond, so don't think the deals have stopped even though the official deals holiday is over – retailers regularly keep the deals going later on.
We've been monitoring the prices throughout the year, but now is one of the best times to find that perfect Cyber Monday iPad deal to upgrade or make your first tablet purchase. We're running you through everything you need to know about picking up the hottest offers.
You can see below all of our favorite post-Cyber Monday iPad deals, and we'll be updating them with specific new options as we spot them throughout the day too.
Cyber Monday iPad deals in the US
- iPad Air 4 (64GB, 2020):
$599$569.99 at Amazon
iPad mini 5 (latest model) - 64GB:
$399 $349.99 at Best Buy
Save $50 - Apple doesn't make a mini iPad very often, and the mini 5 is a good mix of the latest tablet tech in a much more portable form factor. It's great if you've got a child in the house and also supports Apple Pencil. With a discount this hefty, it's likely to be one of the winners of Cyber Monday already.
iPad mini 5 (latest model) - 256GB (Wi-Fi /cellular):
$549 $499.99 at Best Buy
Save $50 - Want the iPad Mini with a little bit of mobile data on board as well? This is the best option around right now, as others are sold out - but we advise really thinking about whether you want that extra connection, as it adds a premium.
2020 iPad Air 64GB:
$599 $569.99 at Amazon (save $30)
Stock is moving fast on these discounts on the iPad Air 4, and we're only seeing this model left so you'll need to act quickly to secure yours for less. This is an excellent discount on the latest iPad to hit the market – if you can grab it in time.
iPad Pro 11-inch (128GB, 2020): $799 $749 at Amazon
The most portable iPad Pro comes with Apple's super-fast A12Z Bionic CPU and all the same specs as the larger 12.9-inch version, but it's cheaper if you don't need the larger Retina display. 128GB is enough storage for working, streaming, and gaming on the move - and with a $50 discount it's currently cheaper than ever. There are also bigger configurations on sale at Amazon too:
$799 $749 | 256GB: $899 $829 | 512GB: $1,099 $999 |
iPad Pro 12.9-inch (128GB, 2020):
$999 $949 at Amazon
The newest iPad Pro sports a stunning 12.9-inch edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display, and the fastest processor you'll find in any tablet - and right now it's $70 less than usual at Amazon. The 128GB configuration is the cheapest version of this device, but if you want more storage, you'll find savings on all versions of Apple's premium tablet at Amazon right now:
$999 $949 | 256GB: $1,099 $999 | 512GB: $1,299 $1,149 | 1TB: $1,499 $1,399
Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro 12.9-inch:
$349 $329.98 at Amazon
It's only $20 off, but the Magic Keyboard is a premium accessory for the iPad Pro - it costs more than the standard 2020 iPad after all. This is the first time we've seen that $349 price waver as well, so if you're looking to use your tablet as a laptop it's worth checking out.

Cyber Monday iPad deals: what we're seeing in 2020
2020 has been an excellent year for the previous generation iPad Pro deals. With this year's refresh and the two year age of the (still) powerful line of luxury laptops pushing prices down, we've seen sales that easily beat last year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday iPad deals over the course of the last few months.
That means we're looking to this line of tablets for the biggest offers this year and ahve seen some great ones, with prices on the 12.9-inch 64GB model with WiFi and Cellular sitting as low as $799 (£999) over summer matched and beaten already. For reference, we didn't see this model (without the cellular connectivity no less) drop further than $899 (£1,049) in last year's Cyber Monday iPad deals.
The iPad Mini 5, however, dropped to its lowest price ealier this year - beating last year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday iPad deals by some way. That's courtesy of a $50 / £50 reduction, bringing the dinky tablet down to $349 / £349 in late-August. If you're shopping for a smaller tablet in this year's Cyber Monday sales, you'll be pleased to know it's matched and beaten it.
The premium iPad Air sits between the 2019 iPad and the iPad Pro in terms of both performance and price. It was still fairly new to the scene over Cyber Monday 2019, and so discounts only hit around $30 / £30 off. Already we've seen Memorial Day sales and Labor Day sales beat that in the US, though UK retailers have been slower to discount the in-between device. Discounts so far in 2020 have seen iPad Air deals sitting as low as $399 (Black Friday 2019 pitted it at $469) thanks to a $100 discount, but over in the UK there's still not been a November-beating price.
The iPad Air has been on sale for around £450 - £460 after briefly dropping to £439 following Black Friday. Still, this is the iPad Air's second time around, and if those US deals are anything to go by we can also expect big things from this 2019 release in the 2020 Cyber Monday iPad deals.
How to find the best Cyber Monday iPad deals
The secret to finding the best Cyber Monday iPad deals for you is to make sure you know exactly what you want heading into the shopping frenzy. If, for example, you're after a more powerful model with plenty of storage for media editing or to replace your laptop, you'll want to pick up an iPad Pro with at least 256GB of storage under the hood.
A 2018 model should suffice (and can save you a lot of cash) but if you're after some newer features or you want to future-proof your purchase it might be worth splashing out on the 2020 model. By contrast, if you're just after a cheaper device for everyday streaming, a few games, and web browsing you'll be able to get away with a 32GB 10.2-inch iPad, or even an iPad Mini 5.
When it comes to the big day, you'll then need to know which retailer to check out first. Walmart, Amazon and Best Buy have offered some particularly good iPad deals over 2020, with Walmart and Amazon leading the pack over Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019. Check out these retailers for 10.2-inch 2019 iPad deals in particular, or head over to Best Buy for the iPad Air - they were responsible for the fantastic $100 discount over Labor Day.
If you're shopping for an iPad Pro, B&H Photo have held onto the top spot over the year with some of the best prices around, so you can bet they'll be ready to stay on top of the game come November. Newegg was also the retailer to beat for older models over Cyber Monday 2019 and over the course of 2020, so if you're looking to save even more cash on previous-gen devices this is where you'll want to head.
Over in the UK, we've seen Currys, Amazon, and John Lewis battling it out for the best iPad deals over the last year and during the course of Cyber Monday 2019. That means these may well be your golden retailer for Cyber Monday iPad deals this year, but don't sleep on Argos, Very and Laptops Direct either.
Once you've found the perfect iPad at the perfect price from the perfect retailer, it's time to see if you can do one better. We wouldn't wait too long to head to checkout as Cyber Monday iPad deals can prove competitive, but a quick price comparison at other leading stores will let you know if you've made a good decision or if you need to switch. It's worth checking that the iPad deal you found can be price matched by your chosen retailer as well, if you'd prefer to shop at a certain store.
Should you buy an iPad deal now?
We're seeing some of the cheapest iPad deals of the year right now, as sales ramp up towards the holiday season. With the 2020 sales season looking a little different this year, we're expecting excellent deals from now all the way to December, which means if you spot a price you like there's no reason to wait longer for Black Friday and Cyber Monday as you may do in previous years. There's no guarantee that these offers won't simply be replicated over the November shopping weekend, and competition will be significantly higher as well.
