Black Friday 2022 tablet deals

iPad Pro deals


The iPad Pro models from Apple enjoyed some surprisingly great discounts this year on Black Friday. The 512GB version of the 2022 iPad Pro, for example, got its price reduced by $400! That was one of the best deals on an Apple tablet we had seen in a while.

On top of that, last year's generation 12.9 and 11-inch iPad Pros also got some nice discounts at BestBuy, which dropped their prices by $300 and $200 respectively. In fact, these deals are still live right now, so you still have a chance at getting a cheaper iPad Pro! Not to mention that there is practically no noticeable difference between the 2021 and 2022 models.

Discounts start at $300 for lower storage models and go to $400 if you wish to upgrade to 512 GB or more. Best Buy is now offering an extra savings of up to $450!

Currently, the iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) discounts start at $300 for lower storage models and go to $400 if you wish to upgrade to 512 GB or more. If you have a comparable gadget to trade-in, Best Buy is now offering an extra savings of up to $450 as well. The M1 iPad Pro 11" (2021) has a less impressive price cut, but is enjoying the same trade-in offer.

Apple Pencil deals and Magic Keyboard deals


The Apple Pencil is that one purchase that can help you utilize your iPad to its utmost potential. It is a must if you do creative work, but is also helpful for more casual things like giving your kid to color and draw.

The 1st and 2nd generation of the Apple Pencil, as well as the different versions of the Magic Keyboard, also got good discounts at BestBuy. The best offer was for the 2nd-gen Apple Pencil, which fell below the $100 mark thanks to a 31% price cut.


iPad Air and iPad mini deals of Black Friday 2022


Sometimes you want a great tablet but with a much smaller form factor. Well, the iPad Air and iPad mini are both very powerful and easy to pack in backpack when you commute or travel. They are also cheaper than the Pro models that Apple offers, so add to that a juicy Black Friday discount and you have one heck of a deal.

The iPad Air from 2022 with cellular connectivity got its price reduced by about $80 during Black Friday, while the iPad mini 6 got its price cut by $100 at Amazon.


iPad deals on Black Friday 2022: 


Want to enjoy Apple's software on a tablet without having to pay a premium price? The entry-level iPad will probably cover most of your casual activities like watching YouTube videos, playing a mobile game, or jotting down a quick note. Black Friday makes these affordable iPads, well, even more affordable. Suffice to say, it is the perfect time to save on an Apple tablet.

The 2021 entry-level 10.2" iPad also got some love at Amazon in 2022, making it about $60 cheaper than its usual price. No offers popped up on the newer version though.
