Best iPad Deals: The cheapest iPads on the market

Thinking it’s high time you got your mitts on a shiny new tablet from Apple? We’ve rounded up the cheapest iPad deals right now on the 9.7-inch iPad, iPad Pro, and others.

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 Apple has rapidly extended its tablet range to include the swish new Pro, Mini and Air version, making it a little bit trickier to know which one you should get.

But no matter – our handy iPad guide below should make everything clearer before you dive into our rundown of the best iPad deals around right now, featuring cracking offers on all the latest models.

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.

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.
