Black Friday is here, and it’s probably the best time to get your mitts on a shiny new tablet from Apple. We’ve rounded up the cheapest deals on the 9.7-inch iPad, iPad Pro, and other.
Back in the day, knowing which tablet you wanted was pretty simple: if you wanted something to watch movies and play apps on you bought an iPad. But with Apple having extended its tablet range to include swish new Pro, Mini and Air versions, knowing which to get can be tricky.

iPad Deals: Which iPad should you get?
The iPad 9.7-inch is the latest standard model and the perfect all-rounder for gaming, browsing and working. The iPad Pro is a more feature-rich option if you’re planning on doing some serious tablet-gazing, but the iPad 9.7-inch offers the perfect balance of functionality and price, and is the go-to iPad for most people.
The iPad Pro is a big step up from the iPad 9.7-inch, in price, size and functionality. You have the choice of iPad Pro 10.5– or 12.9-inch versions. Both offer the best screen, camera and performance we’ve seen on a tablet.
If you want the full functionality of an iPad but in a smaller model, the iPad mini 4 will be right up your street. It’s lighter and more manageable in one hand than its bigger brothers, and while typing is trickier because of the smaller keyboard, it’s a great size for reading and commuting. This is also the cheapest iPad you can get.
Black Friday Deals
In short, if you want a tablet just for Netflix binges and web browsing then stick to the iPad 9.7-inch, or iPad mini if portability is important. But if you want the best iPad and are prepared to pay for it, the iPad Pro is the best tablet you can get.
