Best iPad deals and sales for January 2022

You can’t afford to be picky when it comes to hunting around for the best iPad deals due to the ongoing microchip shortage. Retailers can’t cram enough stock onto the shelves. We’re seeing some excellent iPad sales, but also heightened demand. Take the brand new Apple iPad Air, for example. The tablet is often out of stock at Amazon and is on backorder, with no predicted availability. These dates are being pushed further back by the day, so if you’ve been holding out on a discount on that particular model you’ll need to decide what’s more important: Saving a few bucks or having it in your hands earlier.

Today’s best iPad deals

  • Apple iPad 10.2 (256GB, Wi-Fi, 2021 model) — $449, was $479
  • Apple iPad Air 10.9 (64GB, Wi-Fi) — $551, was $599
  • Apple iPad Air 10.9 (64GB, Wi-Fi + Cellular) — $720
  • Apple iPad Pro 11.0 (128GB, Cellular + Wi-Fi) — $997, was $999
  • Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (128GB, Wi-Fi) — $999, was $1099

iPad 10.2 Deals

  • Apple iPad 10.2 (256GB, Wi-Fi, 2021 model) — $449, was $479

There aren’t many discounts happening on the latest Apple iPad 10.2 at the moment, and we wouldn’t recommend holding out for them either. This model is often on backorder, so if you want this model, order one as soon as you see it.

iPad Air deals

  • Apple iPad Air 10.9 (64GB, Wi-Fi) — $551, was $599
  • Apple iPad Air (64GB, Wi-Fi + Cellular) — $720

Amazon has few iPad Air deals available, but it’s the best place you can shop today: It’s offering the 64GB, Wi-Fi + Cellular model of the latest iPad Air for $729. As far as Apple deals go, that’s one of the best we’ve seen in a while with the size of the discount surpassing the Apple Watch deals we’re seeing on the now-discontinued Apple Watch Series 6. This is one of the few iPad models still in stock at leading retailers with a maximum shipping time of one week.

iPad Mini deals

  • Apple iPad Mini (64GB, Wi-Fi) — $499

Unfortunately, the iPad Mini is another iPad that is on backorder in most configurations, but we did find one deal.

iPad Pro deals

There are iPad Pro models you can shop today, both on the iPad Pro 11.0 and the iPad Pro 12.9, but there are no significant discounts except for $100 off the plus-sized model to customers who purchase today. You’ll need to act fast, though: The iPad Pro 11.0 and iPad Pro 12.9 are both on backorder.
