The Best Black Friday iPad Deals
Apple took the wraps of its new iPad Pro tablet at the Apple October last, so if you're in the market for a new iPad, now's the perfect time to buy one. Select retailers have begun lowering the price of previous-gen Apple slates, so you can jump on some early Black Friday deals right now.
We're gathering the best iPad deals you can buy now, so that you can get Apple's best tablets at a fraction of their cost.
In terms of tablets, few manufacturers can challenge Apple. Its iPad Pro line is as close as we've ever gotten to having a true laptop replacement.
Get a 5th-gen iPad for under $330
Black Friday came early at Adorama, with the retailer offering the Apple iPad 9.7-inch Tablet for $319 ($110 off). Meanwhile, Target has the Apple iPad 9.7-inch WiFi Tablet (5th Gen) on sale for $329.99 ($100 off). With its A9 64-bit chip, 2GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, the 2017 (5th-generation) iPad is still a solid buy. In fact, a new CPU and Apple Pen support are the only main differences between the 2017 iPad and the current-gen model.
iPad Pro deal predictions
Deals on the 10.5-inch iPad Pro aren't common. However, when it's on sale for Black Friday, Apple's 10.5-inch tablet usually sees discounts of $100 to $125, which drops its price from $649 to an all-time low of $524. Meanwhile, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro — which is even harder to find on sale — has dropped as low as $829, which is $120 off Apple's $949 base price. There are no deals on either tablet at the moment, but students can user their .edu e-mail to save $50 on the tablet at Best Buy. Alternatively, keep an eye on B&H Photo, which in addition to Best Buy, is one of the best retailers for iPad deals.
