Let’s be honest, the iPad, as a standalone tablet, is so far ahead of the competition in terms of hardware, software, and app support, that it’s just getting silly now.

I mean, just take a look at our best tablets list and you’ll see the top three spots are taken by Apple’s slates — and for a good reason. Nothing out there gives you an experience so finely tuned as an iPad, which elevates it above competing tablets that are great for only gaming and binge-watching. 

Plus, you can actually get stuff done on an iPad and, thanks to the tablet-centric OS, it’s easier for touch operation than the likes of Microsoft's Surface Pro 7. So, it's no surprise to see so many people picking one up over the last 12 months. If you’re in the market for an Apple tablet, let us help by finding the best of the rare iPad price cuts.
