Last chance to order an iPad Pro 12.9 for delivery in time for Christmas

The different versions of Apple’s iPad fly off the shelves during the holidays, as iPad deals are always popular among bargain hunters who are looking to give the tablet as a gift to their loved ones or to themselves. If you’re searching for one, Amazon is selling the 128GB model of the fourth-generation iPad Pro with a $50 discount, bringing its price down to just $949 from its original price of $999, in a deal that’s likely your last chance to get the tablet shipped in time for Christmas.

The fourth-generation iPad Pro features a 12.9-inch edge-to-edge Liquid Retina screen with ProMotion, which adjusts the display according to the movement of content, and True Tone, which tweaks colors to match the ambient light. This makes the tablet great for watching shows, playing games, working with multimedia, and everything in between.

The latest version of the iPad Pro is powered by the A12Z Bionic chip, which Apple claims makes the tablet faster than most PCs in the market. The iPad Pro also comes with a LiDAR Scanner to enable more immersive augmented reality capabilities, which becomes even more important as the technology’s applications continue to expand. The lidar Scanner is joined by a dual-camera at the back, composed of a 12-megapixel sensor and a 10-megapixel wide-angle lens, for all your photo and video needs.

Apple promises up to 10 hours of battery life for the fourth-generation iPad Pro, which is impressive given the size of its display. The tablet’s capabilities are anchored on iPadOS 14, which introduces stackable widgets, enhancements to iPadOS-native apps like Photos and Notes, and the Scribble app that converts handwriting to text, among many other additions.

If you’re still on the hunt for tablet deals for the holidays, you should consider splurging for the fourth-generation iPad Pro. This masterpiece of a tablet is a great gift for a loved one or for yourself, and the 128GB version is currently on sale on Amazon at $50 off to lower its price to $949 from its original price of $999. This could also be your last chance to receive the iPad Pro before Christmas, so don’t hesitate and click that Buy Now button as soon as you can.

Today's best Prime Day iPad deals
Apple iPad (2021) -- $250, was $329

The 2021 Apple iPad may offer few discernible upgrades over the previous two generations but that's because it follows an 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' mentality. It offers everything you could need from a simple tablet and a few extras that make it well worth the price. On the surface is its delightful 10.2-inch Retina display with True Tone support. That means that imagery looks great at all times with the iPad being the ideal device for streaming content or browsing the internet in style. Its stereo speakers certainly help ensure that this is a great option if you love to catch up with shows on Netflix while on the move.

Apple iPad is at its cheapest-ever price before Prime Day 2023
The iPad 10.2 on a table.

Amazon is currently offering some great iPad deals including being able to buy the Apple iPad (9th generation) for $250. It's currently showing as $279, reduced from $329, but add it to your basket and it gets even cheaper with $29 off at checkout bringing it down to just $250. That's $20 cheaper than it even managed during Black Friday although it was the same price back in March. It's unlikely that it'll be even cheaper during the Prime Day deals next month, although it could happen. That's why we suggest buying it now and choosing the longest shipping method so the return window spans all of Prime Day so you can return it if it somehow gets even cheaper. All you have to do is return it in its original condition for a full refund or replacement within 15 days of receipt. Want to know more about the iPad (9th generation) before you buy? Here's what to know.

Why you should buy the Apple iPad (9th generation)
The Apple iPad (9th generation) might be aging technology but thanks to Apple supporting its products for longer than most, it's still ideal if you want one of the best tablets but need to keep costs down. It's powered by the A13 Bionic chip which remains pretty reliable thanks to the App Store offering so many thousands of apps and games. A gorgeous-looking 10.2-inch Retina display gives you plenty of room to see what you're doing and it makes everything look great compared to other tablets in this price range.

The 10th-generation Apple iPad is already available, but the 9th-generation Apple iPad has certain advantages on top of its lower price. In our 2022 Apple iPad versus 2021 Apple iPad comparison, you may want to go for the 9th-generation Apple iPad if the thicker bezels appeal to you for browsing, and if you've invested in multiple Lightning cables as the 10th-generation iPad uses a USB-C port for charging.
