Get ready for an influx of cheap iPad deals. Apple has officially refreshed its iPad line for 2020, so we expect to see a plethora of iPad deals in the coming days.
So what iPad deals can you get right now? If you want an excellent, all-purpose iPad deal — Amazon has the new 10.2-inch iPad 2020 (128GB) on sale for $395. That's $34 off and the first iPad deal we see for Apple's just-released tablet. Meanwhile, B&H Photo is taking up to $400 off the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2018) with prices starting at $799. It's one of the biggest iPad deals we've seen, albeit for the previous-gen iPad Pro. Other cheap iPad deals you can get right now are listed below.

iPad deals and Prime Day
Amazon Prime Day starts on October 13 and we expect Amazon's 48-hour sale to offer a variety of iPad deals. Look for massive discounts on the entry-level 10.2-inch iPad, which could hit $249 ($80 off) now that the new iPad 8 is here. The iPad Air will also see dramatic discounts thanks to the October launch of the iPad Air 4. In terms of the iPad Pro — the 2018 models will continue to see the biggest discounts ($700 off or more), whereas the 2020 models will see more modest price cuts of $50 to $100 off. Our recommendation is to look for deals on the older models and the new iPad 8. We'll be updating this page with the best cheap iPad deals all throughout the month.

Best iPad deals — refurbs

iPad deals — which iPad should I buy?
Apple's iPad family is now bigger than ever. Currently, these are the models that Apple offers:
- NEW 10.2" iPad 2020 (32GB/128GB):$329/$429
- NEW 10.9" iPad Air 2020 (64GB/256GB):$599/$749
- 10.2" iPad (32GB/128GB):$329/$429
- 7.9' iPad Mini (64GB/256GB):$399/$549
- 10.5" iPad Air (64GB/256GB):$499/$649

- 12.9" iPad Pro (128GB/256GB/512GB/1TB):$999/$1,099/$1,299/$1,499
The 10.2-inch iPad is the tablet for everyone. The mainstream tablet is not only the most affordable, but it's also the best value for your dollar. The tablet uses Apple's previous-gen A10 Fusion chip. That shouldn't be a deal breaker though. While the A10 Fusion chip is indeed dated, it still packs enough power for streaming movies and playing some Apple Arcade.
The new 10.2-inch iPad can be used for sketching and drawing, thanks to its Apple Pencil (1st gen) support. For the first time, you can also pair the 10.2-inch iPad with Apple's Smart Keyboard.
True to its name, the iPad mini is the smallest tablet in Apple's lineup. However, it houses Apple's A12 Bionic chip with an M12 coprocessor. (That's the same CPU found in the iPhone XS family). It happens to be the tablet we own and we love it for everything from streaming Netflix to playing Mario Kart.
If you want a 2020 iPad, you'll want to check out the new iPad Pros. They come in 11-inch and 12.9-inch flavors and use Apple's latest A12Z CPU with M12 coprocessor. They're pricey, but we expect retailers to offer better iPad deals on these tablets in the coming days. To date, we've only seen about $50 off the new iPad Pros. However, you can find cheap iPad deals on the previous-gen iPad Pros (2018 models), which are up to $150 off.
