Amazon US is the gift that keeps on giving right now when it comes to iPad deals. It is rare to see new products at a discount, so a cool $80 off a new 2022 iPad Air, now just $519 (opens in a new tab)it’s excellent.

These models were only released in March of this year, and you can’t get them for less than $599 directly from Apple. We were lucky enough to get hands-on experience with this nifty little tablet and were really impressed. It’s one of the best ipads for drawing (opens in a new tab)and we love the range of colors it comes in.

It’s a very different story in the US, with Amazon removing large numbers of the entire iPad range. But beating all offers so far is the 2021 10.2-inch iPad, now just $269 (opens in a new tab)! Amazon often discounts this item, usually $329, a cool $30 savings is usually where the discount ends, so for the retail giant doubling that savings is a deal not to be missed.

This item dropped to $279 last month, but this takes an extra $10 off to be the lowest price ever recorded on Amazon.

Good morning everyone in the UK. It’s Kerry. again. I’ve already had several cups of coffee this morning and I’m feeling a little high from the intense burst of caffeine and the THRILL OF ALL THE OFFERS. (Sorry, it was a long night.)

Ok, so where are we? The Amazon Prime early access sale has kicked off in the UK and, I’m not going to lie to you, my excitement came to an abrupt end when searching for iPad deals. Disappointing is an exaggeration. So far I haven’t seen anything different from yesterday, butI’m holding on to the hope that Amazon saves the best deals for today or tomorrow.

Seeing that Amazon hasn’t found the products (yet), I looked elsewhere and managed to find the 2021, 10.2-inch 9th-gen iPad for £275 on eBay (opens in a new tab). The RRP for this device is £299, so it’s not a huge saving, but it’s the cheapest model you’ll find online in the UK right now.

In the US, there are still a few hours to go before the official Amazon Prime Early Access sale kicks off, but there are a few iPad deals to be had right now, including $100 off iPad mini 2021, now starting at just $399 (opens in a new tab). There’s also up to $70 off iPad Air 2022 (opens in a new tab)reducing the price of the newest iPad with the M1 chip to just $559 for the initial configuration.

We’ve had time to go through all the official members-only Prime Early Access deals on Apple products launching in the UK at midnight, and no iPads to be found, so Amazon’s best iPad deals are still the ones that we’ve listed above, which are open to non-Prime members.

If you’re interested in what Apple deals are available only to Prime members, it’s primarily iPhone 13 Pro – Up to 7% off (opens in a new tab)and Apple Watch (Series 7 and SE), at least for now. Savings on Apple Watch are similar to what we saw during Prime Day, with £40 Off GPS Setup (opens in a new tab). But Apple’s biggest savings right now is £375 off a 2020 27-inch iMac, now £1,624 (opens in a new tab).

The Amazon Prime early access sale has officially started in the UK and so far the best Amazon sale iPad deals on offer aren’t exclusive Prime deals – they’re open to everyone. You may save £34 on 2021 iPad 10.2-inch 256GB configuration, now £424.99 (opens in a new tab)but perhaps the most tempting depends on £40 off iPad mini 2021 (opens in a new tab).

We really like the iPad mini (pictured above), as it’s more powerful than the standard iPad, but also more compact, at 8.3 inches. That makes it a great option for drawing and other creative work on the go. Amazon is £20 off the base 64GB configuration (now £459). That doesn’t give you much storage, but there’s £40 off the 256GB version, now £579.

If you’re looking forward to Amazon deals on other Apple products besides the iPad, then we’ve got good news. Right now, Amazon has $50 off the new Apple Watch Series 8 (opens in a new tab). The deal is only available in the 45mm GPS configuration, but it’s a huge saving considering the Series 8 launched last month.

We hope this bodes well for more deals from Apple, including Amazon sale iPad deals. Remember that you can find more savings like this on our main page apple sale amazon page.

Released in March this year, the new iPad Air 2022 is a beauty. Being only a few months old, we didn’t expect to see any discounts on such a new device. But Amazon US has triumphed, $50 off this year’s iPad Air, bringing the price down to $549 (opens in a new tab) in a range of colors. You can’t get these devices for less than $599 directly from Apple, so this deal is worth a look. The question is, will you choose blue, pink, purple, space gray or starlight?

So, after scouring the internet for the best iPad deals all day, we’re now in a pretty good position to pinpoint the best deals. And this one, detailed above, which drops a 2021 10.2-inch iPad to just $299 (opens in a new tab) it’s still there. A $30 savings might seem pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but at $329, this device already offered incredible value for money, so the fact that it’s now down to under $300 is a big deal. total bargain.

The swamp standard iPad, this machine is a barely small device, with 64GB of storage and WiFi, it’s ideal for families to share and surf the web, stream videos, play games, and take photos. A fabulous off-roader at a really great price.

Hardly the best deal we’ve seen, but in the UK the iPad Pro is currently £35 off, up to £864 (opens in a new tab). Hopefully a more impressive discount on the top-end iPad will emerge over Amazon’s sale, but hey, £35 off is better than nothing.

Smart Folio for iPad Pro

Me again. I don’t know about you, but in my house (with three wild kids running around) a quality iPad case is essential. Unsurprisingly, Apple’s own iPad cases are the best you can get, but also unsurprisingly, they’re often the most expensive. That said, in the UK you can get a new Apple Smart Folio for the fifth-gen 12.9-inch iPad Pro for less than £90.

Available in two colors, you can save £10 on the black version, now £89 (opens in a new tab)or if you are very brave, it is also available in white for even less – now just £84.22 (opens in a new tab).

If you want a smaller, more travel-friendly tablet, we’ve found the perfect deal for you! Originally priced at $499, US buyers can currently purchase the iPad Mini 2021 64GB for just $399.99. (opens in a new tab) That’s a huge savings of just under $100! This compact tablet measures just 8.3 inches, but still packs a punch with Apple’s A15 Bionic chip. At 20 percent off, this is the lowest price we’ve seen yet on the iPad Mini.

The UK still doesn’t see a deal to match the US discount on the iPad Pro 12.9, but you can save £34 on the 2021 version of the iPad 10.2 with Wi-Fi and 256GB storage, down to £424.99 from £459 (opens in a new tab) . It’s not the lowest price we’ve seen on it (that’s £419 from earlier this year), but it’s still a nice saving on a very capable iPad.

Afternoon everyone – Happy Monday! It’s the editor of CB Kerrie, here to bring you the best new iPad deals this afternoon. If you live in the US, I’m about to become your new best friend, with the news of $300 off a new iPad Pro.

This particular model is 2021, 12.9-inch iPad Pro with WIFi and 256GB storage, and it’s currently on sale for just $899 on Amazon (opens in a new tab) – that’s the lowest price ever recorded for this device. Amazon’s list price is $1,199, but we’ve seen it cheaper even this year, but it doesn’t come close to this low price.
