What Black Friday iPad deals to expect?
Apple recently announced the release of a new version of the iPad Air which will be available in Octobers. That means that all of its predecessors like the iPad Air 3 will be heavily discounted during Black Friday. We also expect to see big discounts on the iPad Pro and the 10.2-inch Apple iPad with the 10.2 iPad seeing up to $100 off. If you’re looking for a portable, budget-friendly option, the iPad Mini should also be seeing discounts, anywhere up to $50 off. iPad accessories will also be on sale so if you’re looking for a new cover or a Bluetooth-enabled keyboard for your iPad we expect to see a lot of deals. Apple products like the Magic Keyboard will also see discounts anywhere between $20-$30, maybe even more.
What Black Friday iPad deals did we see last year?
Last year some of the best must-have offers were on the iPad Mini and the 10.2-inch iPad both seeing $50 off. Older models like the iPad Air 2 and the original iPad Air also saw big discounts up to $150 off. The newer iPad Pro also saw significant discounts with some variants seeing up to $50 off and the 1TB version seeing $20 off.
Should you buy a new iPad on Prime Day or Black Friday?
Prime Day and Black Friday are both set to take place in the fall of this year. Since Prime day was bumped from its usual summer spot we expect there to be a lot of pent-up demand this season. The best advice we can give you is to get your holiday shopping done during Prime Day this year. There are a few reasons for this. Amazon saw hefty shipping delays during the crux of the pandemic and a lot of must-have products are still unavailable or waiting for a restock. This means that if an iPad you really want sells out during Prime Day, there might not be enough time for a significant restock before Black Friday and by extension Cyber Monday. With the inevitable shipping delays as well, any product you buy on Black Friday might not arrive in time for your Christmas gift exchange. Discounts will also be similar during both events so feel free to get your holiday shopping done a little earlier this year. If you do decide to wait till Cyber Monday, stay in the know with these Cyber Monday iPad deals.
