This year's Amazon Prime Day iPad deals will heat up the summer with steep discounts on Apple's premium tablets. Although Prime Day 2022's date is unknown, according to Amazon's quarterly report, the big summer sale returns to its regular July scheduling. 

So if you want the best price on a shiny new Apple tablet, look out for this summer's Prime Day iPad deals. 

Prime Day shoppers can expect to see the lowest prices of the year on Apple's family of tablets. We look forward to seeing impressive discounts on the 2022 iPad Air 5. So far, the biggest discount we've seen to date took $70 off the 256GB iPad Air 5. Hopefully the 64GB entry model will follow with at least a $50 price cut for Prime Day. 

Naturally, the biggest discounts will go to the previous-gen iPad 4 as well as last year's M1 iPad Pro release. And in the spirit of competition, Best Buy and Walmart are bound to offer their own iPad deals.

Prime Day iPad deals start date 

According to Amazon's April quarterly report, Prime Day 2022 is expected to occur in July. The specifics of the actual start date of the next Prime Day event remains unknown. 

Prime Day typically occurs during the second or third week of July to coincide with Amazon's July 5 founding date. However, there have been a few exceptions to the rule. 

In 2020, Prime Day was pushed back to October 13-14 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The following year, Prime Day 2021 took place on June 21 and June 22 to kick off the summer. Although Prime Day 2022's date remains a mystery at this time, it will arrive before we know it. 

When the big day arrives we'll be sharing the best Prime Day iPad deals right here, so be sure to check back. If you plan on shopping this Prime Day, be sure to bookmark our Prime Day 2022 hub for the best deals on today's most coveted tech.
