Black Friday iPad deals — shopping tips

iPad 2022: The iPad 2022 is the latest tablet to join Apple's iPad family. It sports a new A14 Bionic CPU, 10.9-inch (2360 x 1640) Liquid Retina display, 12MP rear camera, and 12MP front camera. The new iPad also comes with a heft $449 price, which is $120 higher than that of its predecessor. This iPad has yet to see any discounts, so we'll keep a sharp eye out for deals. Meanwhile, we expect its predecessor could drop to $269 or less on Black Friday.

iPad mini 2021: Although Apple increased the price of the iPad mini by $100 for this generation, the iPad mini 6 received a multitude of upgrades starting with a redesign that includes an edge-to-edge screen. It also sports a larger 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display with 2266 x 1488 resolution. (The older iPad mini has a 7.9-inch 2048 x 1536 display). The new tablet also gets a current-gen A15 Bionic CPU, which is the same processor powering the iPhone 13. According to Apple, the new CPU should provide a 40% jump in performance when compared to the previous iPad mini. Price-wise, the iPad mini has already seen price cuts that take $39 off. However, the biggest discount we've seen for the iPad mini 6 is $100, bringing it to a neat $399.

iPad Air 2022: The iPad Air 2022 hit an all-time price low of $519 during the October Prime Day. It had regularly sold for $549 or $559. That means any Black Friday iPad deals for this tablet will have to match or beat this $519 price point. That said, we don't foresee this tablet getting significantly cheaper than $499 during the holidays. 

iPad Pros: Apple's professional tablets will see massive price cuts this holiday season. The base 11-inch iPad Pro is regularly $50 off, whereas the base 12.9-inch iPad Pro can usually be found for $999 ($100 off). Expect Black Friday iPad deals to take from $100 to $350 off various configurations of these tablets. The base models should see at least $100 off, whereas the higher $350 discounts will go toward the higher capacity models. Deals on the 2022 models could take from $50 to $100 off. 

What retailers offer the best Black Friday iPad deals?

History has shown that Amazon offers the best Black Friday iPad deals every year. This year, the retailer dropped the price of the base iPad to $269. We expect to see a similar discount for the current-gen iPad. Naturally, competitors like Best Buy and Walmart could price match Amazon's deals, which tend to sell out fast. 

Amazon: from $30 to $60 off select iPads (opens in new tab)
Best Buy: up to $329 off any iPad with trade-in (opens in new tab)
Target: shop all iPad accessories from $121 (opens in new tab)
Walmart: previous-gen iPads from $79 (opens in new tab)

Which iPad is right for me?

The 10.2-inch iPad is the most popular iPad for a reason. It's Apple's mainstream model that's both affordable and offers good bang for your buck. The tablet uses Apple's A13 Bionic processor, giving faster performance that makes the tablet more capable for iPadOS' multitasking tricks. It will also make your next round in Apple Arcade a bit smoother. Sure, it's been replaced by Apple's 2022 model, but it still remains a solid value.

The iPad Air (2022) is a solid pick if you want more power. Our iPad Air (2022) review explains why that tablet is the best iPad for most people. It's a lot like the iPad Pro, but its starting price is $200 less. The iPad Air has thin bezels and a flat-edge design, and it's also got support for the top Apple accessories — the 2nd Gen Apple Pencil that's much easier to charge and the Magic Keyboard which is a delight to use.

Apple's iPad mini is the smallest tablet in Apple's lineup (as its name implies). It's not light on power though, as the new 2021 model sports an A15 Bionic chip, which on paper makes it as fast as the iPhone 13. Beloved by many, its portable size makes it ideal for reading, writing emails and browsing social media. And don't worry, its screen is still great enough to watch some of the best Netflix shows.

Power users, though, will want the iPad Pro. It's available in both 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes. The new tablets are powered by Apple's M2 CPU, which means you'll get record-breaking speeds out of them.
