If you’re in the market for a new iPad and you’re on the hunt for iPad deals, you have an important choice to make. We’re in that time of year where Prime Day 2023 is likely looming. We don’t know when it will be, but we do know that products like the Apple iPad will get some sweet discounts. You have to choose whether you should buy an iPad from today’s tablet deals, or hold off and hope for a better Prime Day 2023 iPad deal.
We’ve done some legwork that will help you make that decision. We’ve looked back the peaks and valleys of the price of various iPad models on Amazon. Below you’ll find a table showing several iPad models’ full price, current price, price on Prime Day 2022 and price on Black Friday 2022. Finally you’ll see a prediction for what we think the price for Prime Day 2023 might go to. “NA” indicates that the iPad either hadn’t launched yet or didn’t have reported data.
|MSRP||Today’s Price||Prime Day 2022||Black Friday 2022||Best Price 2022||Prime Day 2023 (Prediction)|
|iPad (9th Gen)||$329||$300||$265||$265||$220 – $260|

|iPad Pro (6th Gen)||$1,050||NA||$999||$999||$969 – $1,025|
These predictions are based on how much that model of iPad usually drops during Prime Day. We also consider factors like how old the iPad is and whether or not a new iPad in that line was released in 2023.
