Black Friday is a brilliant opportunity to pick up a deal on an iPad. While technically a single day (it falls on November 25 in 2022) Black Friday has gradually expanded to encompass Cyber Monday (on November 28), as well as the week leading up to the big day. These days, in fact, you’re likely to see Black Friday-branded sales and deals through almost the entirety of November.
This means you need to keep your eyes peeled for killer iPad savings from now on. Or, better still, let us keep our eyes peeled for you. In this article, we round up the best-value deals on the various iPad models currently available in both the U.S. and the U.K., as well as provide automated price comparison tables that will pull in the lowest prices across all the major retailers.

Latest 10.9-inch iPad (2022) deals
Apple’s 10th-gen iPad (MSRP $449/£499) launched as recently as last month, and we haven’t seen huge widespread sales yet. However, it dropped to $399 at B&H Photo ahead of Black Friday, so we could begin to see bigger discounts
Latest 10.2-inch iPad (2021) deals
The 9th-gen iPad (MSRP $329/£369) from last year remains on sale, and may be a better option if money is tight. We’ve seen it drop as low as $269.
Latest iPad mini (2021) deals
The 6th-gen iPad mini (MSRP $499/£569) came out in 2021, but we don’t expect the next version until 2023. Get the best price by checking retailers below:
Latest iPad Air (2022) deals
In the respects that count—from design to performance, from 5G to accessory support—the latest iPad Air (MSRP $599/£669) is a Pro in all but name. You can often find it on sale for $50-$100 off.
Latest 11-inch iPad Pro (2022) deals
Apple’s latest set of iPad Pro models are insanely powerful and well specced. You may be able to grab a small saving, but they’re so new that a large discount is unlikely. The 11-inch model’s MSRP is $799/£899.
Latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2022) deals
The 12.9-inch version of the Pro (MSRP $1,099/£1,249) is Apple’s top-of-the-line tablet. Don’t pay a penny more than you need to:
