The best 2020 iPad deals: The new 10.2-inch model is on sale for $299


The iPad Air is getting a major revamp next month with a new processor, big display and USB-C. Starting price: $599. Meanwhile, the run-of-the-mill iPad also received an update. It’s available now and by far the most affordable Apple tablet: The eighth-gen iPad starts at $329 and is already on sale at Amazon for $299. Note, too, that Amazon is also offering the 128GB model for $395 — that’s $34 off the Apple Store price.

Amazon is also offering $20 off the iPad Mini and similarly modest discounts on various iPad Pro models. We’ve got the best prices for each iPad below. 

Also, we’re focusing on the Wi-Fi versions of the iPad. Using LTE on a tablet is cool, but for most people it’s not worth the additional cost — for the device and the monthly service — especially when you can easily tether your phone for free.

We update this list regularly.
