Yes, it would help if you bought an iPad on Black Friday, as it's a terrific time to score a huge discount, especially on the discontinued iPad Air (2019). Discounts on the existing iPad mini (2019), iPad (2020), and iPad Pro (2020) are also possible.
Lots of power at a discount
Black Friday into Cyber Monday is a great time to find awesome discounts on iPads. This year, we believe the biggest discounts will be found on the current iPad (2020) and iPad mini (2019), and last year's iPad Air (2019). It would be best if you also were on the lookout for slight discounts on this year's iPad Pro (2020), both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models.
Why buy an iPad Air (2019) on Black Friday?
Apple made significant changes between last year's iPad Air and the new model. The newest model has a bigger display, better processor and rear-facing camera, support for the second-generation Apple Pencil, 4K video recording, a USB-C connector, and more.
Despite this, last year's model is still worth considering. With a 10.5-inch display, the iPad Air (2019) is larger than the iPad (2019 and 2020), and it still supports an Apple Pencil (first-generation). Plus, the front-facing camera is the same one you'll find on the newer model. If you aren't quite ready to switch to USB-C, keep in mind that the iPad Air (2019) still comes with a Lightning connector.
Why buy an iPad mini (2019) on Black Friday?
The current iPad mini isn't likely to get a 2020 replacement like the iPad (2019) and iPad Air (2019). And yet, Amazon often discounts this model regardless. Though we don't yet know how much Amazon will discount the iPad mini (2019) on Prime Day, it could prove significant. The iPad mini (2019) is best described as an iPad Air (2019), but with a smaller display. Not surprisingly, it makes our list of the best iPads of the year!
Why buy an iPad (2020) on Black Friday?
Apple's signature iPad is typically on sale throughout the holiday buying season. This year's model offers an A12 Bionic chip with 64-bit architecture and Neural Engine. You'll find a 10.2-inch display and two storage sizes, 32GB and 128GB, like last year's model.
Why buy an iPad Pro (2020) on Black Friday?
Yes, the iPad Pro is expensive. However, if you've been waiting patiently to make your purchase, you might soon be rewarded. Released in March 2020, this year's iPad Pro models are likely to get replaced early next year. Because of this, you will start to see nice discounts arrive during and after the Black Friday holiday shopping period.
The iPad Pro comes with an A12Z Bionic chip with 64-bit architecture with Neural Engine and Embedded M12 coprocessor. It's available with 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB of storage.
iPad Air (2019)
Not as flashy as the newer iPad Air model, but this version is still impressive. From its awesome 10.5-inch display to its beefy internals, this is a great iPad to own, especially if you can get it at a nice discount.
iPad mini (2019)
If you want a smaller sized iPad, this is the only one you can get. Featuring the same internals as the iPad Air (2019), the latest iPad mini fits nicely in the hands, making it the most mobile iPad on the market. Buy it for less, and enjoy it!
You could be highly rewarded with Prime Day deals on this iPad. Nearly identical (inside and out) compared to this year's model, the iPad (2019) is a great entry-level tablet for yourself or younger family members.
