This is the cheapest iPad from Apple. It usually costs $ 330 for the tablet with 32 GB of storage or $ 430 for the 128 GB model. Each has a 10.2-inch display and has the A10 processor, a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and a Smart Connector for connecting a Smart Keyboard. It is common for this model to be sold for up to $ 80 or $ 100 below the usual price, depending on the space needed. Models that support LTE connectivity are far less likely to get discounts.
There are currently no noteworthy offers for this model, but stay tuned as the discounts above usually come up every month.
Apple launched a new iPad mini in early 2019 that features the same 7.9-inch display and design from previous iterations with updated internal specs. The A12 Bionic processor of the iPhone XS is considerably more powerful than that of the iPad. Apple manufactures a 64GB and a 256GB model of the iPad mini with Wi-Fi support for $ 400 and $ 500, respectively. If you want LTE connectivity, the starting price is $ 530.
Sales of this model are somewhat less common, but we're currently seeing some deals that cost around $ 50 less than the 64GB version or the 256GB model.
The latest iPad Air is basically a souped-up version of the iPad 2019 with a slightly larger display (10.5 vs. 10.2 inches) that is better for several reasons: it's laminated so everything looks livelier, crisper, and has true tone , Apple's technology that adapts the color temperature of the screen to your lighting situation. Like the iPad mini, it has the A12 Bionic processor and is available in 64 GB or 256 GB memory configurations. This model costs from $ 500 and up to $ 600 for Wi-Fi models, while the version that supports LTE connectivity is available from $ 630.
We've seen the price of the iPad Air's 64GB / Wi-Fi model drop in the past by $ 100 to $ 400, although the deals currently closed are only $ 30 cheaper. On the other hand, you get a good deal on the 256GB model, which is $ 100 cheaper at Best Buy.
The 2020 iteration of Apple's iPad Pro is similar to that of 2018, except for the rear-view camera with two lenses. In contrast to the cheaper models, this model removes the headphone jack and uses a USB-C port instead of Lightning. Face recognition is also used to unlock instead of relying on the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. The iPad Pro has the most powerful internals of the entire Apple iPad range, which is reflected in the price.
The 11-inch model with 128 GB of memory starts at $ 800, and increasing the screen size to 12.9 inches raises the price to $ 1,000. Each size supports up to 1 TB of storage space. An increase costs $ 1,299 for the 11-inch model and $ 1,499 for the 12.9-inch model.
Don't expect big price cuts for this model, though the entry-level 11-inch and 12.9-inch models with 128 GB of storage are currently $ 50 cheaper.
