It is just around the corner, . If you’re looking to bid on the Apple iPad, you’re in luck. We’re already seeing some decent savings on Amazon for Apple tablets.
One thing to note about Apple is that iPads are often sold elsewhere for a little less than their list price in the Apple Store, where the cost is basically never cut. There are decent sales at the moment (with savings of $ 30 to $ 60, or even more), but we can also see even better discounts once Prime Day officially begins on Monday.
In other words: you may see some attractive discounts right now, but you may want to wait until Prime Day officially begins before making your purchase. We will continue to monitor Amazon and its competitors, such as, other – all of which have already announced the Prime Day counter-sale – for any price drop on this popular brand of tablets. We have also compiled here.

The 8th generation iPad features a 10.2-inch screen powered by the A12 chip. The 32GB model has a list price of $ 329, but it has been reduced to $ 299 on Amazon. We saw it drop to $ 279 last year at Costco, and we may see this benchmark iPad drop during real Prime Day or one of the counter-sales.

Apple’s 10.9-inch iPad Air offers much of what the iPad Pro does, but at a lower price. That great value earned it our Editors’ Choice award last year, but the newest Pro raises the bar (work for more money). This offer covers all color options other than silver, so please note that prices may vary when selecting your style.
