Apple’s newest and best iPad Pro device comes in two versions: the iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2018) and the iPad Pro 11-inch (2018). Both come with the powerful A12X Bionic processor, the same battery capabilities, and a variety of storage options. The larger version offers more screen real estate for creatives; while the smaller model is more portable and easier to take on the move. 

Here are the best iPad Pro Cyber Monday deals on the latest 2018 models. And we’ve also found some stonking discounts on the older 10.5-inch iPad Pro (2017)…

The iPad is Apple’s baseline tablet. The latest model, the iPad 10.2-inch (2019), raises the tablet’s specs closer to those of the latest iPad Air, with the addition of Smart Keyboard support and a slightly larger screen. It boasts strong battery life, decent performance, and it’s cheaper than the other iPads – giving you some of Apple’s best iPad features on a more limited budget. 

You’ll find all the best iPad Cyber Monday deals on the 10.2-inch model below. And for even bigger iPad Cyber Monday deals, look to the older (and slightly smaller) 9.7-inch, 6th-gen model from 2018.

How much are iPads on Cyber Monday?

As offers on Apple products are rare, we’re likely to see iPad deals at an absolute maximum of around 40 per cent off. But that’s still a fair amount off (especially when prices run into the several hundreds) – and even with smaller discounts, anything is better than paying full whack. 

In terms of where to look for deals, Apple itself isn’t exactly renowned for rolling out massive price cuts on its gear – it usually offers gift cards. Last year, you could pick up a discounted iPad at Walmart, Currys, Very, John Lewis and Amazon on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Last year, we saw discounts on the 2018 11 iPad Pro and 12.9 iPad Pro models, so as these models age, it’s a fair bet that you’ll be able to snag some significant Black Friday and Cyber Monday iPad Pro deals, especially on pre-2018 iPad Pros. We may also see discounts on the 9.7-inch iPad, which received a major update in 2018, adding Apple Pencil compatibility among other things. If using a Pencil isn’t high on your list of priorities then you’ll be likely to save on a 2017 model if you shop around. If you’re after an iPad Air or iPad mini, you’re also likely to save on older stock, and may even get a bit off the newer models.

How to get the best iPad Cyber Monday deals 

iPad Pro

Get ready to hunt for an iPad Black Friday deal

If there’s one thing you can be sure of when it comes to the best Black Friday iPad deals (and the best Cyber Monday iPad deals, of course), it’s that they’re going to be in short supply, and serious discounts are going to be even more rare, so you’re going to need to be prepared to leap on a good deal as soon as you spot it. The best offers are likely to appear as lightning deals with limited stock available, so keep checking back here for news on them as soon as they come up.

For the best chance of finding great Black Friday Apple iPad deals, you’ll need to keep an eye on as many retailers as possible; Amazon had some good deals last year and you can expect some more this time around, but you’re also likely to find savings from eBay and John Lewis as well as major electrical stores. If you’re in the USA, watch out for iPad deals from Walmart and Newegg, while in the UK firms such as Currys PC World and Very are likely to come up with the goods.

Decide in advance roughly what model you’re after; do you want a standard iPad, a Pro, a Mini or an Air? And watch out for retailers shifting older models at knock-down prices; they’ll look pretty much the same but you’ll have to make do with poorer performance than the latest iPads, especially if you’re running iOS 12 on aged stock.

Finally, try to overcome your Black Friday excitement and take the same care you would for any other major purchase. Check for cashback offers, make sure the guarantee’s going to cover you if something goes wrong, and make sure you keep your receipt in case you need to return your shiny new purchase.

Which iPad should I buy?

iPad Apple Pencil

You’ll need a newer iPad for Apple Pencil support

If you’re likely to fill up your iPad with photos, videos and music then you should naturally opt for as much storage as you can comfortably afford (up to 1TB on the iPad Pro), but do you really need to pay the extra for a cellular model? The smarter option is to tether a Wi-Fi iPad to your iPhone, and use that for a mobile signal when you’re out of range.

If you want maximum power, specs and screen size, then go for the best iPad Pro money can buy – the iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2018), which boasts an A12X Bionic chip for super-speedy graphics, and 2732 x 2048 resolution. See our iPad Pro 12.9-inch review here. 

The slightly smaller (and cheaper) iPad Pro 11-inch (2018) is another excellent choice for creatives, and has the same super-charged A12X Bionic chip. Both the iPad Pro models work with the second generation Apple Pencil – although you’ll have to buy that separately. The Apple Pencil 2 attaches magnetically to the iPad, where it also charges and pairs, and it’s one of the best styluses available for drawing. Both models are available with 64GB. 256GB, 512GB or 1TB of memory.

If you’re not so fussed about screen size, or top specs, then the new 10.2-inch iPad (2019) could be for you. It’s a lot cheaper than the 2018 models, and has a still impressive A10 chip and 2160 x 1620-pixel resolution. It supports the first generation Apple Pencil, and is available with 32GB or 128GB of memory.

Other iPads include the iPad mini (see our iPad mini review here), which has a A12 chip and 7.9-inch screen. It’s extra portable, as the name suggests, and is compatible with first generation Apple Pencil. 

There’s also the iPad Air, which has 10.5-inch display and also has an A12 chip, plus several older models of the iPad. The 2017 versions have previously been on sale over Black Friday, so you may be able to pick up a Black Friday iPad deal on one of them. When looking at older iPads, remember that if you want to use your new iPad for drawing then be sure to plump for a model with Apple Pencil support.
