iPad deals — which iPad should I buy?

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

  • 10.2-inch iPad (32GB/128GB): $329/$429 
  • 7.9-inch iPad Mini (64GB/256GB): $399/$549 
  • 10.5-inch iPad Air (64GB/256GB): $499/$649 
  • 11-inch iPad Pro (128GB/256GB/512GB/1TB): $799/$899/$1,099/$1,299 
  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro (128GB/256GB/512GB/1TB): $999/$1,099/$1,299/$1,499

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. 

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.
