Many of the best Prime Day tablet deals last year wowed us with huge discounts on iPads, Amazon Fire tablets and more. For 2022, we're expecting a whole lot more of the same!

There's no doubt that Prime Day 2022 will be one of the best times of year to score steep discounts on the industry's best tablets. It's an especially excellent time to save on Amazon's family of Fire Tablets and eReaders. 

So if you're looking for an affordable tablet for yourself or the kids, they'll be cheaper than ever on Black Friday.

Amazon Prime Membership: 30-Day free trial (opens in new tab)
Prime Day offers exclusive member-only discounts for Prime members. If you're not a Prime member, be sure to sign up for an Amazon free 30-day trial to shop Prime Day 2022 deals.

Looking for a price break on Apple's premium tablets? Prime Day 2022 will be your best bet. 

One deal that we may see return this summer is more deep cuts on the 4th Generation iPad Air (opens in new tab). With a new one out and available with M1, you'll see this outgoing model discounted heavily. 

Not only that, but the M1 iPad Pro (opens in new tab)has been getting some impressive price chops recently, so expect that to be on the cutting board too.

Plus, it should come as absolutely no surprise, that Amazon Fire tablets will be available for dirt cheap too. In fact, I'd fall off my chair with surprise if we didn't see Amazon gadgets for sale on Amazon's sale event.

We'll be rounding up the best Prime Day tablet deals during the sale right here. However, if you need to secure a tablet sooner than later, here are five Prime Day-worthy tablet deals you can shop right now.

Best Prime Day-worthy tablet deals

Apple iPad Pro (11-inch, 128GB, M1 chip): was £749 now £699 @ Amazon UK (opens in new tab)
The big improvement in Apple's M1 iPad Pro is the inclusion of its beasty M1 chip, which comes armed with a next-gen neural engine and more cores than you’d care to count for some insanely good performance.

Apple iPad Air: was £519 now £499 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
The previous gen iPad Air copies a lot of the iPad Pro’s homework and offers us a great tablet at an even better price. As you can read in our iPad Air review (opens in new tab), we’re huge fans of the sleek design, powerful A14 Bionic chip, and awesome battery life.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A8: was £219 now £158 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
The Galaxy Tab A8 from Samsung is the budget big slab to beat with a 10.5-inch display, 32GB storage, and an Octa Core processor for under £200!
