The Cyber Monday iPad deals are still here, even as the clock ticks away towards the end of the annual discount season. This year's been a little different, with some of the fastest-moving Cyber Monday deals we've seen, with inventory running out left right and center.
The base iPad deals aren't huge, but there are some still to be found on most variants. For example, we just found $15 off the iPad Air's cellular model. That deal, and some of the iPad Pro deals we're seeing, can be contingent on the color you pick, so don't be dissuaded if the first option isn't discounted. The 10.2-inch iPad meanwhile is proving the most difficult to find (with or without a deal), but Best Buy is offering trade-in bonuses, and Apple's got a deal for cellular models.
Below you'll find all of the best Cyber Monday iPad deals you can still get right now — including a list below of the iPads that are shipping immediately, without warning of backorders.

Cyber Monday iPad deals — which iPad should I buy?
Apple's iPad family is now bigger than ever. The 10.2-inch iPad is the tablet for everyone. The mainstream tablet is not only the most affordable iPad, but it's also the best value for your dollar. The tablet uses Apple's A10 Fusion chip. That shouldn't be a deal breaker though. While the A10 Fusion chip is indeed dated, it still packs enough power for streaming movies and playing some Apple Arcade.
It can also be used for sketching and drawing, thanks to its Apple Pencil (1st gen) support. For the first time, you can also pair the 10.2-inch iPad with Apple's Smart Keyboard. Check out our new iPad (2020) review to see why we love Apple's latest tablet.
True to its name, the iPad mini is the smallest tablet in Apple's lineup. It houses Apple's A12 Bionic chip with an M12 coprocessor. (That's the same CPU found in the iPhone XS family). It happens to be the tablet we own and we love it for everything from streaming Netflix to playing Mario Kart. However, keep in mind that it's long overdue a refresh from Apple. Once it's been refreshed, there will likely be better iPad deals on this tablet.
If you want unrivaled power, you'll want to check out the new iPad Air or iPad Pros. The latter come in 11-inch and 12.9-inch flavors and use Apple's new M1 CPU. They will be available for sale in the second half of May. As for the 2020 iPad Pros, you'll find great iPad deals on those tablets. The base models are currently up to $100 off.
How to find the best Cyber Monday iPad deals
Where to find the best deals: Generally speaking, Amazon tends to offer the best Cyber Monday iPad deals. On any given day of the week you'll typically find discounts that run the gamut from $50 to $200 off. Other retailers like Best Buy, B&H Photo, and Walmart tend to offer similar prices. However, it's rare that they undercut Amazon's deals.
Check all colors: Amazon tends to give different color iPads different prices. For instance, the base iPad 64GB tablet in black might sell for a discounted $299 price, but the white model might sell at full price. So when looking for iPad deals at Amazon, it's worth checking various colors for the lowest price.
Beware the iPad Air: The iPad Air is now one of the oldest iPads in Apple's lineup. There are also strong rumors that it could be updated with an iPad Air 5 complete with a new A15 Bionic CPU and OLED display. As a result, you might want to wait before buying this model.
