Did the $330 price tag for the latest Apple iPad feel a little too high for you? Right now as one of many early Prime Day deals, the latest Apple iPad is down to just $300, saving you $30. For the absolute latest technology, this is a fantastic deal if you’re in the market for a brand-new iPad. It’s just one of the many great Prime Day iPad deals we’re expecting to see in the coming days, but we can’t see this one getting any cheaper. It’s a rare discount on a very new and highly sought-after product after all.

The latest Apple iPad has everything you would expect from Apple and more. It offers a gorgeous-looking 10.2-inch Retina display so that, whether you’re typing up a document or watching your favorite show on Netflix, it looks fantastic. Alongside that is an A12 Bionic chip processor which ensures everything is super speedy at all times. That means loading up new apps is fast but it also means you can dive into the latest games on Apple Arcade and enjoy them at the speed and quality you deserve.

The latest Apple iPad also has an 8MP back camera and a 1.2MP FaceTime HD front camera so you’re well served whether you’re making a video call with friends or taking some quick snaps while out and about. With up to 10 hours of battery life, you won’t have to worry about recharging it throughout the day either as it should last you a decent length of time.

Throw in security features like Touch ID for secure authentication, Apple Pay support, and support for the Apple Pencil (1st generation) and the smart keyboard, and the Apple iPad is an impressively versatile device. Whether you’re using it for work or pleasure, or a little bit of both, you’ll be happy with everything it offers.

Ordinarily priced at $330, the new Apple iPad is down to just $300 as part of Amazon’s early Prime Day deals. We can’t see it staying at this price for long given that it’s a rare discount on a brand-new product, so if you’re keen to upgrade, we suggest jumping on board as soon as possible. You won’t be disappointed.

The back of the iPad Air 5.

For those who are on the hunt for iPad deals, you probably should take advantage of Best Buy's $150 discount for the Wi-Fi, 64GB model of the fifth-generation Apple iPad Air. From its original price of $600, it's back down to $450, which is what the tablet was going for during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you missed the chance to buy the device back then, you shouldn't let this opportunity slip through your fingers -- proceed with completing the transaction now while it's not yet too late.

Why you should buy the Apple iPad Air 5th Gen
The 2022 Apple iPad Air reigns over both of our lists for the best iPads and best tablets, primarily because of the power it packs for a reasonable price. You'll be able to watch streaming shows, play video games, browse the internet, and multitask between all of these apps without any issues. This is possible through Apple's M1 processor, which comes with an eight-core CPU for efficient performance, an eight-core GPU for amazing graphics, and a 16-core Neural Engine and 8GB of RAM for fast processing and rendering. The fifth-generation Apple iPad Air may be overkill for some people, but that only means you won't feel the need to make an upgrade for years to come.

The most popular iPad on Amazon (and one of our favorites) is $80 off
The iPad 10.2 on a table.

Apple tablets are some of the most popular and hold the market share in the U.S., and for very good reason. Probably one of the most popular, if not the most popular, tablets is the iPad 9th-generation, and that's very obvious given how many units it's sold on Amazon alone, which is over 10,000 in the last month alone. Not only that, but it's had an incredible 57,000+ reviews with an average rating of 4.8, which is actually very impressive, given how critical reviews tend to skew. If you want to grab one, you're in luck because Amazon has a great deal that brings them down to $249 from $329. That's a very respectable $80 discount, especially on a product that's essentially flying off the shelves.

Why you should buy the Apple iPad
There are a lot of great things to say about the 9th-generation Apple iPad, and beyond just the excellent price it's going for, it has a large 10.2-inch screen running the Retina display we all know and love, with vivid color reproduction and image fidelity. Under the hood, you'll find Apple's A13 Biochip, which is a couple of generations old at this point, but still more than powerful enough for most tasks that you'd throw at it on an average day. As for storage, it is admittedly on the lower side at 64GBs, but the 256GB model also has a deal on it, bringing it , and that's also worth considering.
