Black Friday is a brilliant opportunity to pick up a deal on an iPad. While technically a single day (it’s the day after Thanksgiving in the US, which worked out as November 25 in 2022) Black Friday has gradually expanded to encompass Cyber Monday (November 28), as well as the week leading up to the big day. These days, in fact, you’re likely to see Black Friday-branded sales and deals through almost the entirety of November.
This means you need to keep your eyes peeled for killer iPad savings. Or, better still, let us keep our eyes peeled for you. This article is where we round up the best-value deals on the various iPad models available in both the U.S. and the U.K., as well as provide automated price comparison tables that will pull in the lowest prices across all the major retailers.

Apple’s Black Friday sale for 2023
Each year Apple holds a Black Friday shopping event, but rather than offering discounts it just gives gift cards for certain products. In 2022 this promotion applied to the iPad Air, iPad mini, and 9th-gen iPad:
$50/£50 Apple Gift Card: iPad Air, iPad mini
$30/£30 Apple Gift Card: iPad (9th-gen)
The offers are available on Apple’s website during the sales period, but we don’t know yet what will happen in 2023. It’s just possible Apple will announce some actual discounts, but don’t count on it.

Latest 10.9-inch iPad (2022) deals
Apple’s 10th-gen iPad (MSRP $449/£499) launched in October 2022, which meant Black Friday 2022 came too early for deep discounts. However, it did drop to $399 at B&H Photo. This year we can expect bigger savings.
Apple’s latest set of iPad Pro models are insanely powerful and well specced. You may be able to grab a small saving, but they’re so new that a large discount is unlikely. The 11-inch model’s MSRP is $799/£899.
