Best Deals on 2021 Apple 8.3-inch iPad Mini 

Some people might mistake the 2021 iPad Mini for a large phone, but it has more in common with a laptop than the average smartphone. With a smaller and thinner design, the newest iPad Mini has an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic chip. Currently, Best Buy has the best deals on the iPad Mini, and they recently dropped the price to $399.99.

The newest iPad Air is a quantum leap forward. It runs on the M1 chip with Neural Engine, has a 12MP Ultra Wide front camera with Center Stage, and the 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with True Tone also has P3 wide color and an anti-reflective coating for the best image of any iPad Air yet. This new tablet recently saw its first price drop over at Amazon. Right now, Prime Members can save $40, snagging this 2022 model for just $559.

Best Deals on 2020 Apple 10.9-inch iPad Air 

The previous generation of iPad Air tablets may have dropped in 2020, but there’s still a lot to love about this colorful tablet. The iPad Air 2020 uses Apple’s A14 Bionic chip, which offers the kind of power you’d typically expect from a laptop. And because it’s been around longer than its 2021 cousins, it’s easier to find on sale. If you are looking for iPad Air tablets, head to Walmart or Amazon to pick one up for $469.

Best Deals on 2021 Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro 

If you’re looking for the best possible price on the new generation of Apple tablets, we recommend going with the 2021 iPad 9, which you can purchase for just $279 at Amazon and Walmart. However, if you want a larger tablet from Apple, you’ll want to go with the premium 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Released in late 2021, this iPad Pro is powerful enough to replace most laptops (if you buy a separate keyboard). The high-speed M1 chip powers the iPad Pro, and the base model comes with 128GB of storage. Right now, Amazon and Walmart have the lowest price on the iPad Pro and, with even more storage (256GB), are selling it for $999.00.

Best Deals on 2021 Apple 11-inch iPad Pro 

Although the 11-inch iPad Pro has a smaller Liquid Retina display, it’s still large and fast enough for most users. So unless you miss that extra inch, we recommend saving yourself $250 and going with this model over the 12.9-inch iPad featured above. You can usually find this tablet priced at $799, but Walmart has recently lowered the price to $749.
