Best Apple iPad deals: Save up to $100 on new M1 iPad Pro – CNET




Apple unveiled new iPad Pros earlier this year, which are the first non-Macs to receive Apple’s M1 chip. The new iPad Pros are available in the same sizes — 11 and 12.9 inches — as the models they replace, but they offer more memory and storage in addition to the M1 goodness. The new iPad Pros come with up to 16GB of memory and up to 2TB of storage. A Thunderbolt port is also on board, and the 12.9-inch model boasts Apple’s Liquid Retina XDR display

The baseline models with 128GB of storage of the new M1-powered iPad Pros are discounted right now on Amazon. The 11-inch iPad Pro has been $50 off for the past few weeks, and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is $100 off right now. There are, however, no discounts to be found currently on the higher-capacity models.

There are also sizable discounts on older models if you don’t need the power of an iPad Pro. The eighth-gen iPad is only $299 at Amazon and Walmart, and you can save $60 on an iPad Air at Amazon.

Apple’s 10.9-inch iPad Air with 64GB of storage, in either space gray or green, is $60 off at Amazon. For most users, a 64GB drive is skimpy and will fill up fast. Thankfully, you can save $110 on the 256GB model in rose gold. Want a different color? Other color options for the 256GB iPad Air are discounted by $99.

We’ll be honest: This one is only for those willing to pay a premium for the smaller screen. You’re basically paying more to get the same basic specs as the 10.2-inch iPad, but with a more portable 7.9-inch size (albeit with 64GB of storage and a spiffier screen). The 64GB model is selling at a $30 discount and the 256GB model is $59 off.
