The standard 10.2-inch iPad is still the cheapest iPad Apple sells, but there is now a new iPad with a 10.9-inch display that costs a bit more. If you’re looking to pick up a deal and save money on either the 2021 iPad (9th gen) or the 2022 iPad (10th gen), then you’ve come to the right place.
You can find great deals if you know where to look – and that’s where we step in! We’ve checked all the best places to pick up the iPad at the best price for you, so you can get a bargain. One thing to note if you are shopping outside of the U.S.–Apple has increased the price of the 9th-generation iPad! Read more about that here: Is Apple ripping off the rest of the world with inflated prices? The main reason we mention this is it might make the discounts on the older iPad look better than they are – which is why we quote the price it was as well as what it is sold for now.
There is more than one kind of iPad though. The standard iPad also has more expensive siblings including: iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad Pro and if you click those links you can see deals on those models. Also have a look at our best iPad deals round up and our iPad Buying Guide if you aren’t sure which model you want. You may also like to check out our round up of the best Apple deals.
Keep in mind that the Black Friday deals season is almost here with Black Friday starting on 25 November this year – find out what to expect from Black Friday iPad deals in our separate article.

Best refurbished iPad deals
The deals you will see above are generally from Apple resellers rather than Apple itself – Apple very rarely drops the prices. Apple does, however, sell reconditioned iPads in its refurbished store. So you might be able to grab a bargain.
The iPads in Apple’s refurbished store may be ex-display stock, or they may have been returned to Apple due to a fault, but they are fully reconditioned now and come with a full year’s warranty. It’s not like buying secondhand.
Check out the US Apple Refurbished Store to see if there are any iPads available right now.
If you are in the UK you may be able to find a iPad at Apple’s Refurbished Store. For example, we’ve seen a 128GB gold iPad (8th-gen) for £329 and a 32GB iPad (7th gen) for £209.
