Black Friday consistently proves itself to be the best time of year to save on Apple products, and that includes iPads. If you're looking to score yourself one of the best tablets this year, now's your opportunity.
If you're buying an iPad for the first time, the 10.2-inch iPad (WiFi/64GB) for £299 at Currys would be a great place to start. It's the cheapest iPad Apple currently offers, but its A13 Bionic CPU provides great performance for streaming, browsing the web and some light gaming. It's £50 off its usual price right now. John Lewis offers the same price.

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.
iPad Air 2022: The iPad Air 2022 is our choice for the best tablet on the market, making it a great choice of tablet for a wide range of users. It's powered by Apple's M1 processor, which features an 8-core CPU. Its 12MP ultra wide front camera supports Center Stage. The tablet also features a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display (2360 x 1640), USB-C charging, and Magic Keyboard support.

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 Sure, it's been replaced by Apple's 2022 model, but it still remains a solid value.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 with a lower starting price. 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.
