Black Friday is around the corner and with it some of the best technology deals of the year. Even Apple, known for its expensive gadgets, gets involved. If you’re looking for the technology giant’s latest products, you’re in luck: both iPads are already seeing a drop in prices by the end of 2020: the eighth-generation iPad typically starts at $ 329, but is already on sale in. In addition, we are seeing even better deals from retailers like Costco, and Best Buy is teasing “up to $ 70 off”
We update this list with the advent of new deals and the expiration of old ones, so be sure to check back often for the best price.

The eighth-generation iPad has a 10.2-inch display powered by the A12 chip. The 32GB model has a list price of $ 329, but most retailers sell it for $ 299, which is also an educational discount from Apple. However, if you have a Costco membership, this $ 279 price tag is the best you’ll find right now. Read our review for the iPad 2020.
Apple’s 10.9-inch iPad Air has 64 GB of storage and is a solid device for the price. In fact, it provides a good share of the iPad Pro’s experience for much less money than this model. $ 40 off the regular price of $ 599 will be a welcome discount for customers looking for a combination of percentage features.

Larger iPad Pro models are currently downsized on Amazon. You can save $ 50 for 128GB, 256GB or 1TB models and $ 20 for 512GB models. But just keep in mind that we expect upgrades to the iPad Pro in 2021. Read our review of the iPad Pro 2020.

Let’s be honest: this is only for those who want to pay a premium for the smaller screen. You essentially pay a big premium to get the same basic specs as the 10.2-inch iPad, but with a more portable 7.9-inch size (albeit with 64GB of storage and a sleeker screen).
