The iPad Pro 12.9-inch is the biggest iPad available, with a massive Liquid Retina display powered by an M1 laptop chip. It might not have quite the same amount of RAM as a MacBook, but for most light computing tasks, it can serve as a laptop replacement. All the colors and storage options are reduced in the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale, so it's the perfect opportunity to save some money on an iPad Pro.

iPad Mini : $499 $399 at Amazon

This is another great deal if you're not a Prime member - $100 off an iPad Mini. This is the lowest price the iPad Mini has ever been, and you're getting a lot of tablet in a small package for a lot less money in this Amazon Prime Day deal.

The iPad Mini brings the snazzy edge-to-edge display of the iPad Air to a smaller form factor, along with a slick aluminum shell and Touch ID in the power button. It may not have the M1 of its siblings, but the A15 Bionic will still do you very well, buzzing its way through almost every task with aplomb.

The $100 saving at Amazon makes the little tablet that could only $399, although you'll have to watch out for the colors. The iPad Mini in Pink still only has $50 off.

iPad Air 10.9

iPad Air 256GB : $749 $669 at Amazon

The sales look to be across the board on the iPad Air - if you want an iPad with a little more storage, you're still going to be saving some money. Need extra space to store all those games, apps, and photos? The 256GB variant of the iPad Air is now down to $669 at Amazon. That's an $80 saving on full price - not too shabby at all.

Usually, storage updates on Apple products are extremely expensive, sometimes adding hundreds to the price of a device. Here, you will be paying a little more for some more gigabytes, but you'll get around an extra 190GB over the previous model and pay less than normal for the privilege. Nice.

Screen protectors

Ksleri Matte Glass Screen Protector: $12.99 $10.39 at Amazon

iPads have big screens - it's part of the point of an iPad. But those screens, while as durable as a screen can be, are still made of glass and not completely scratch or breakproof. A screen protector is a must, and a matte screen protector like this Ksleri one will make your iPad Air more visible in direct light. There's currently $20 off a pack of two in the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale.

Need one for a different iPad? We've got you covered with the best iPad Pro screen protectors, iPad Mini screen protectors, and best iPad 2021 screen protectors.

iPad Keyboard case for iPad 10.2: $51 $42 at Amazon

You don't have to fork out a bundle for an iPad keyboard case - this one will fit a 10.2-inch iPad, fully protect the tablet when closed, and add a keyboard and trackpad to make it more useful. It's pink, too, and if you look closely, its bumpers in the corners look a little like ears. Cute! In the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale, it costs $42 - a little $10 discount from full price is always a nice bonus.

Logitech Combo Touch for iPad Pro 12.9-inch

Logitech Combo Touch iPad Pro: $229 $169 at Amazon

We love the iPad Pro Magic Keyboard from Apple, but it is definitely on the expensive side and can make an iPad Pro purchase very costly. That's why this Logitech alternative is such a fantastic deal. It offers all the same features, including backlit keys, function keys, a trackpad, and more all for just $169 instead of $229.

iPad Pro

iPad Pro 11-inch: $799 $749 at Amazon

Another reduced iPad that's not in the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale - the 11-inch iPad Pro. The savings here might not be quite as impressive as those on the iPad Pro 12.9-inch, but you're still getting an incredibly powerful tablet for a little less than normal. At the moment, you can save $50 on the base 128GB model, so you'll only pay $749 at Amazon.

Only a little smaller than its bigger stablemate, the iPad Pro 11-inch retains all the power of the big Pro in a smaller package. There's that mesmerizing Liquid Retina display keeping things going, as well as a 120Hx refresh rate to make sure that the UI is slick as the day it was released. Available in more storage options than you can shake a stick at, it's well worth a look.

Fire HD 8

Fire HD 8: $89 $44 at Amazon

You know it's possible to get a really good tablet experience for a lot less than it costs to pick up an iPad? This Fire HD 8 deal means you can grab one of Amazon's tablets for less than $50. For the same price as a bottom-rung iPad 2021, you could pick up around five of these Fire tablets and still have some dollars left over for a bag of Hershey's Kisses. Sure the screen isn't as big or nice, and it's less powerful, but it bears repeating - it's a tablet for under $50. Grab a Fire HD 8 at Amazon for $44.

One of the cheapest around - but that doesn't mean its rubbish. The screen is HD and plenty good enough for some Prime Video, and the Amazon App store has more apps than you can shake a stick at. It's also less than a fifth the price of the cheapest iPad at the moment in the deal of the century.

iPad Air

iPad Air Cellular: $749 $669 at Amazon

Perfect for the iPad user on the go, the iPad Air Cellular gives you the internet wherever you are. If there's signal, of course.

It's a pretty good saving, and you can grab one from Amazon.

Jamjake Smart iPad Pencil: $39 $27 at Amazon

Ok, so the Apple Pencil is really cool - it's also really, really expensive for a plastic rod with a battery in it. This one from Jamjake may not be quite as smart or clever as the Apple Pencil, but it's also a third of the price.

You can replace the nib too so that when its soft surface gets damaged, you don't have to throw out the whole pen. Smart. And it's in the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale. Double smart.
