Black Friday 2019 iPad deals: The calm before the storm

por Omer O'Ferrall (2020-01-06)

man-1269217_960_720.jpgid="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> Sarah Tew/CNET This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2019, your source for the season's best gifts and deals, hand-picked by the experts at CNET. Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo and others have already unveiled major iPad discounts over the past two weeks, culminating in Walmart's head turner on this 10.5-inch iPad Pro. (The price has since creeped from $599 to $699 -- but it's still a total steal on a Pro-caliber Apple tablet with 512GB of storage.)

Most of the best deals, however, are still to come. And if you're in the market, take note: Walmart has announced that the new 10.2-inch iPad will hit $250 on Nov. 27. For now, Amazon and B&H are now selling it for $299. But if you can wait, you should. And xxxphoto that applies to last year's 9.7-inch iPad, too. We still like the 128GB version for $349 at Amazon. But the 32GB model has abruptly disappeared from most stores, suggesting that larger discounts are on the horizon.

Walmart Black Friday 2019: The best deals right now
The discounts on the newer iPad Mini and iPad Air are still pretty negligible. We'd recommend waiting for the next round of deals to come through before buying either one of them. 

Note that we're focused on the Wi-Fi versions of the iPad here. Using LTE on a tablet is cool but, for most people, not worth the additional cost -- for the device and the monthly service -- especially when you can easily tether your phone for free.

Sarah Tew/CNET This is a good deal on an older version of Apple's iPad Pro. Yes, the discount was up to $400 last week. And, yes, this 10.5-inch iPad was released in 2017. But still. Walmart's loaded configuration (512GB of storage, Apple's A10X processor) is a bargain at $699 -- even in 2019. Read our 10.5-inch iPad Pro review.

That deal is gone -- but the company is now offering $200 off the step-up 256GB model (and the 512GB and 1TB versions, too). Note that you need to be a member of Best Buy's My Best Buy reward program to see the sale prices. Read our iPad Pro review.
