Looking for a great last-minute gift idea? The latest Apple iPad 10.2-inch is still available at Amazon with delivery in time for Christmas, plus you save $30 on the usual price. That brings it down to $300, representing a 10% saving on the regular list price. For the latest Apple tablet, this is a good discount that comes at an even better time of the year. If you’re keen to snap up a different type of iPad such as the iPad Air or iPad Pro, we’ve got plenty of other iPad deals out there right now for you to check out.

We’re fans of the budget-priced Apple iPad 10.2-inch as we explained in our Apple iPad 10.2-inch review. As we concluded, it offers pretty much everything you could need at a very reasonable price. It has a beautiful looking 10.2-inch Retina display which is powered by an A12 Bionic chip that can contend with both multitasking for work or playing the latest games on Apple Arcade. Alongside that is up to 10 hours of battery life, an 8MP back camera, a 1.2MP FaceTime HD front camera, and 32GB of storage. The storage is a little low but you can always store the majority of your files on iCloud.

For those looking for a bit more flexibility, you can also purchase an Apple Pencil (1st generation) or Smart Keyboard to expand the functionality of the Apple iPad, making it a more practical work tool. These are just some of the reasons why we called the Apple iPad the best budget iPad in our Best iPad to buy guide. It’s a solidly dependable all-around iPad that should suit the majority of user needs.

The Apple iPad is normally priced at $330 but you can buy one for just $300 right now at Amazon. We’re reasonably confident the price will stay the same for a little while but the big issue here is whether Amazon will continue to offer stock for delivery in time for Christmas. We think the delivery dates will slip pretty quickly so if you want one in time for the big day, it’s a smart move to hit that buy button sooner rather than later. You won’t be disappointed.

Apple iPad (2018) — from $98

When this iPad model came out in 2018 it was hard to imagine it ever being available for just $119. It has a 9.7-inch Retina display that makes it good for browsing the web and watching movies. It only comes with 32GB of storage space, but this isn’t an iPad for loading up with modern apps and media anyhow. It would be a good starter iPad for the kids, or a good way to take the internet with you when you travel. This iPad deal includes a 1-year warranty and free 30-day returns.

We love iPad deals at any time, but how about an iPad deal on a recently announced model? That’s what’s going on right now at Amazon with the Apple iPad Air 11-inch M2 -- reduced by $29 when it hasn’t even been launched yet.

Why you should buy the Apple iPad Air 11-inch M2
Only recently announced, the Apple iPad Air 11-inch M2 is sure to be something special. We’ve compared the iPad Air (2024) with the iPad Air (2022) to see why it’s so great. Effectively, the killer feature here is that it has the Apple M2 chip we’ve seen in more recent MacBooks compared to the older M1 chipset. That makes it a great option for power users who want all the power possible from one of the best tablets.
