Best cheap iPad deals in October 2020

iPad deals

Get ready for an influx of cheap iPad deals. Apple has officially refreshed its iPad line for 2020, so we expect to see a plethora of iPad deals in the coming days. 

So what iPad deals can you get right now? If you want an excellent, all-purpose iPad deal — Amazon has the new 10.2-inch iPad 2020 (32GB) on sale for $299. That's $30 off and the cheapest price we've seen for Apple's just-released tablet. Other cheap iPad deals you can get right now are listed below. 

iPad deals and Black Friday

We're expecting to see a huge range of Black Friday iPad deals this holiday season. No tablet will be spared. In fact, we're already seeing aggressive discounts on Apple's 2020 tablets like the 10.2-inch iPad and 10.9-inch iPad Air. However, it's the former that we predict will see the most dramatic price cut. Last year, the flagship iPad dropped to an unprecedented price of $229. We predict the new 2020 iPad will hit the same price if not on Black Friday, then definitely by Cyber Monday. Make sure to follow our Black Friday deals coverage for the season's best deals.

Best iPad deals — refurbs

Refurb iPads make for great iPad deals. We especially like the refurb iPads from the Apple Store because they come with the same 1-year warranty you'd get from a new factory-sealed iPad. Currently, refurb iPads deals at the Apple Store start at just $329. View Deal

iPad deals — which iPad should I buy?

Apple's iPad family is now bigger than ever. Currently, these are the models that Apple offers: 

The 10.2-inch iPad is the tablet for everyone. The mainstream tablet is not only the most affordable, but it's also the best value for your dollar. The tablet uses Apple's previous-gen 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

The new 10.2-inch iPad can 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 Air (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. However, 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.

If you want a 2020 iPad, you'll want to check out the new iPad Pros. They come in 11-inch and 12.9-inch flavors and use Apple's latest A12Z CPU with M12 coprocessor. They're pricey, but we expect retailers to offer better iPad deals on these tablets in the coming days. To date, we've only seen about $50 off the new iPad Pros. However, you can find cheap iPad deals on the previous-gen iPad Pros (2018 models), which are up to $150 off.
