Prime Day 2021 is approaching so get ready for the best iPad deals of the summer. Amazon's annual 48-hour shopping event occurs on June 21 and 22. This year, we expect Apple's entire family of tablets to see sizable discounts — some could hit all-time low prices. 

From the 7.9-inch iPad mini to 12.9-inch iPad Pro, we'll see markdowns from $40—$400 on various configuration iPads. While previous-gen iPads will get the biggest discounts, we'll also see the best price of the season on the new iPad Pro. 

The lowest price we've seen so far for the newly released 11-inch iPad Pro with M1 chip is $749 ($50 off). We expect it to return to this price during Prime Day with competitors like Best Buy and Walmart offering the same deal. Amazon currently has its larger sibling, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (256GB) on sale for $900 ($199 off). This is the lowest price we've seen for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro to date.

As for the entry level 10.2-inch iPad, it's frequently been on sale for $299 ($30 off) at Amazon and other retailers. We could see it discounted another $20—$30 price drop for Prime Day. 

Apple's mid tier iPad Air 4 could see a $540 ($59 off) deal price in the next round of Prime Day iPad deals. The rumored next-gen model iPad Air won't see the light of day until 2022 so we don't expect it to go much lower than that — at least not until the holidays. 

Rarely on sale, the 7.9-inch iPad mini is long overdue for a considerable discount. Historically, we've seen it drop to as low as $335 ($64 off) on Amazon. Given the age of the tablet, Amazon could offer it for just $299 ($100 off). It hit this price during Black Friday at Best Buy, undercutting Amazon's price by $36.

Competing retailers are offering Prime Day iPad deals alongside Amazon. We'll be tracking prices to bring you the deals on iPads during the sale. If you can't afford to wait for Prime Day, you can score awesome Prime Day-like savings today. Here are the best iPad deals you can get right now. 

Prime Day 2021 runs from June 21 to June 22 with offers of fantastic iPad deals. Be sure to bookmark our Amazon Prime Day 2021 deals hub for the best Prime Day discounts.
