Save $50 on latest iPad Pro 11.0 with this rare early Prime Day deal

Andy Boxall/DigitalTrends

If you are looking to take advantage of Prime Day deals to purchase a premium tablet, then you’re in luck. It’s rare to see discounts for newly released Apple products, but they do happen every once in a while. A perfect example is this early Prime Day deal for the Wi-Fi model of the 11-inch, 128GB version of the fourth-generation iPad Pro. The offer, which joins the list of Prime Day iPad deals ahead of the October 13-14 event, cuts $50 off the tablet’s price to take it down to $750 from $800.

Apple, which released the fourth-generation iPad Pro in March, claims that the tablet powered by the A12Z chip is faster and more powerful than most Windows laptops. The latest version of the iPad Pro, however, remains easy to handle with a width of only 5.9mm and weight of only 471 grams. The Liquid Retina IPS screen offers vibrant colors, and the slim 6mm bezels provide just enough of a border so that you won’t accidentally touch the display while holding the tablet.

Apple went all-in with augmented reality for the 2020 iPad Pro. The tablet incorporates a lidar scanner, which is the same technology used by self-driving vehicles to measure distances, and combines that with the Pro camera system that includes a 12MP wide camera and a 10MP ultrawide camera to enable new augmented reality experiences.

Apple promises up to 10 hours of battery life for the iPad Pro, though that will depend on what you’re doing on the tablet. Its charging port uses a USB Type-C connector, not the Lightning cable used by iPhones, which opens up more options for where you can plug it in.

The iPad Pro is a valuable machine for students and professionals alike, and the recent iPadOS 14 update introduced more multitasking tools and expanded Apple Pencil support, while also improving several Apple apps for an even better experience.

The 11-inch, fourth-generation iPad Pro was only released seven months ago, so while $50 off might not be much, any discount should be considered a bonus for such a powerful device. The tablet is on sale for only $750, from the original price of $800, so if you are looking for an iPad Pro, you should take advantage of the offer now as it’s unclear how long it will last.

The 11-inch iPad Pro is a great tablet that Apple needs to kill
The Apple Pencil attached to the iPad Pro (2022).

Apple’s iPad has come a long way since it first launched in 2010. It now spans four different variations: iPad, iPad mini, iPad Air, and iPad Pro. The iPad Pro lineup is the most peculiar because it has always come in two sizes ever since it debuted in 2015. There was always a 12.9-inch size, but the smaller model started with a 9.7-inch display, then a 10.5-inch one, and we now have the 11-inch model that exists today.

For some time, there wasn’t much difference between the two iPad models except for the screen size — if you wanted something more portable, the smaller one was the way to go. You could choose it and not miss out on any features that were only available on the larger, less-portable iPad Pro model. But since Apple added M-series chips to the iPad Pros, the 11-inch version has felt a bit out of place, as Apple only gives the larger 12.9-inch version the much-improved Liquid Retina XDR display with mini-LED technology.

Though Apple has had great success with the iPad, it hasn’t been without some fumbles here and there. We’re going to take a look at some of the worst iPad models that Apple has released so far, and why they made this list.

The 2022 iPad Pro is quite a fascinating device. It’s got more firepower than a majority of Apple’s own computers. It offers arguably the best stylus experience of any mainstream tablet. The build quality is amazing, the screen is stunning, and the keyboard is fantastic.

Yet, I haven’t met a single person who can wholeheartedly recommend this tablet, especially after looking at the price tag. But that’s not the only reason to avoid dropping north of a thousand dollars on this sleek machine. Yes, the M2 chip inside the 2022 iPad Pro breathes fire, and Apple also claims some notable on-paper improvements.
