These iPads are still discounted following the Prime Big Deal days event

Amazon’s Prime Big Deals Days 2023 is already over, but some Prime Day deals for various models of Apple’s iPad remain online. We’re not sure how long they’ll stay available (this may be a glitch, for all we know), so if you want to take advantage of any of the offers that we’ve highlighted below, you’re going to have to move fast. The discounts may be gone as soon as tomorrow, so it’s highly recommended that you push through with any purchases as soon as possible.

Apple iPad 9th Gen (Wi-Fi, 64GB) — $270, was $329

The ninth-generation Apple iPad, the previous iteration of the brand’s entry-level tablet, is an affordable way of getting your hands on an iPad. It’s still a very capable device though, with Apple’s A13 Bionic chip that’s also found in the iPhone 11 series. It features a 10.2-inch Retina display, compatibility with the first-generation Apple Pencil, and protection from the Touch ID fingerprint recognition system.

The 10th-generation Apple iPad, the brand’s current entry-level tablet, is listed in our roundup of the best iPads as the best mid-range iPad. It’s powered by the A14 Bionic chip, which is also the processor of the iPhone 12, and it’s equipped with a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display and the Touch ID security system. The tablet also abandons the large bezels and home button of previous generations in favor of a full-screen design with slim bezels.

Apple iPad Mini 6th Gen (Wi-Fi, 64GB) — $469, was $499

We described the sixth-generation Apple iPad Mini as a little powerhouse because despite its compact size with an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display, it’s still capable of performing most tasks with Apple’s A15 Bionic chip that it shares with the iPhone 13. The tablet offers USB-C connectivity, all-day battery life, compatibility with the Apple Pencil 2, and the Touch ID security system.

Apple iPad Air 5th Gen (Wi-Fi, 64GB) — $559, was $599

The fifth-generation Apple iPad Air sits on top of our list of the best tablets because you’ll get excellent value for money with this device. Its high-performance Apple M1 processor is also found in the Apple MacBook Air 2020, so almost nothing will slow it down, and the device is equipped with a stunning 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display. It’s also protected by the Touch ID system, and it works with the Apple Pencil 2.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch 6th Gen (Wi-Fi, 128GB) — $1,049, was $1,099

Creative professionals will love the capabilities of the sixth-generation Apple iPad Pro, which is powered by Apple’s M2 chip, and there’s simply nothing like the tablet’s 12.9-inch Liquid Retina XDR display that brighter and more vivid than the screens of most mobile devices. It’s protected by Apple’s Face ID face recognition system, and it works with the Apple Pencil 2.

Apple iPad (9th generation) -- $229, was $329
iPad 9th Gen Digital Trends

We liked the Apple iPad (9th generation) back when it first launched in 2021. It's a good quality device even if it's no longer one of the best tablets around. It has the A13 Bionic chip that we've previously seen on the iPhone 11 range along with the latest iPhone SE so it's no slouch despite its age. It also has a 10.2-inch Retina display with True Tone support. True Tone means that the display adjusts to the color temperature of the room you're in so it always looks great. There's also support for the Apple Pencil (1st generation) and Smart Keyboard if you want to be more productive.

My favorite Black Friday tablet deal isn’t an iPad or Android tablet
Amazon Kindle Scribe leaning up against a log cabin.

As the Section Editor for Digital Trends' Mobile team, the way I use smartphones, tablets, and other devices is a bit chaotic. I get something new in to review, I test it out for a while, and then I have to put it away to focus on whatever is next. That means I rarely have time to keep using one specific device for very long at a time.

But there's one gadget that's completely broken this rule. It's the Amazon Kindle Scribe — Amazon's weird tablet/e-reader/notetaking hybrid device. It's on sale right now for Black Friday 2023, with Best Buy selling the Kindle Scribe for just $280 — a massive $110 discount from its normal $390 asking price. This is the model with 32GB of storage and Amazon's Premium Pen stylus.

Apple’s latest iPad just crashed to its cheapest-ever price
iPad 2022 first setup.

If you've been looking forward to iPad Black Friday deals, here's the first offer you should check out. The Wi-Fi, 64GB model of the 10th-generation Apple iPad, the latest version of this line of tablets, is down to its cheapest-ever price of $349 from Amazon. The $100 discount on the device's original price of $449 probably won't last long though, as there's always high demand for Apple devices, so if you don't want to miss out on this bargain, it's highly recommended that you proceed with the purchase as soon as you can.

Why you should buy the 10th-generation Apple iPad
The 10th-generation Apple iPad is the newest release of Apple's entry-level tablets, and while its specifications aren't as powerful as the iPad Air or iPad Pro, the device is listed in our roundup of the best iPads because it's a relatively affordable tablet that offers amazing bang for your buck. It's equipped with Apple's A14 chip, which is the same processor that's found in the iPhone 12 so it looks outdated, but the tablet is still pretty fast and smooth by today's standards, especially if you'll only be using it for simple tasks such as browsing the internet, checking social media, playing mobile games, and watching streaming shows.
