The Black Friday weekend continues, and if it's an Apple iPad you're in the market for this autumn, then it's an iPad you shall get (and if it's literally any other product, be sure to read our when does Black Friday end? guide.


Gone are the days where the humble tablet's presence had us confused: is it a smartphone or is it a computer? We've leant into the lightweight and portable iPad's perks of easy transportation, the ability to watch our favourite shows and films on a bigger screen than that of our smartphone, as well as connect with friends and family via video calls. We're big fans of the Apple iPad, and have recommended it in guides such as the best tablets for older people, and now, we've found you some top savings on it, too.

The Technology team are dedicated to helping you find the best deal on the products you want, and we search a range of reputable retailers to make sure the deal we're suggesting has the biggest saving. The largest discount we've spotted on an iPad is on the 10.2-inch 2021 iPad in Space Gray. At Tech in the Basket, you can save £110 on this slightly older model.

Plus, we like to recommend products to you that the Technology team have hands-on tested, such as the Apple iPad Mini review and Apple iPad (2021) review – this is so you can be sure you're buying a decent piece of tech that is cost-effective in that it's durable and comes jam-packed with features that makes it worth the price tag. We know that tech gifts often come with a hefty price-point so it's important you're getting the most for your money.

Let's take a look at the best Apple iPad deals for Black Friday 2023.

Why we chose it: In the Technology team's iPad (2021) review, we liked it for its extensive features, such as multitasking abilities like Split View and Centre Window which allows you to see all of your tasks at a glance while also prioritising certain jobs, which punch well above its entry-level price point. We also liked its slim and lightweight design, as well as the ease of set-up, particularly for existing Apple customers, which makes it a great option for older family members.

The 5th generation of iPad Air comes with all of the features we know and love on an iPad, such as touch ID, advanced camera, fast Wi-Fi connectivity, USB-C, and support for the Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil.

For example, they're eco-friendly as you're shopping second-hand, they're fully functioning as all refurbished items go through several rounds of testing to ensure they're fit for purpose, and they're cheaper, as you can see with this Apple iPad.

What's the difference between an iPad and an iPad Air?

The main two differences between the standard Apple iPad and the Apple iPad Air is that the iPad Air looks sleeker, thinner and more modern, but it's also more expensive. We've dived a little more into the specs for you below.

The 2020 and 2022 iPad Air models come in the following dimensions: 247.6mm in height, 178.5mm in width, and have a thickness of 6.1mm. Both iPad Air models come with two storage sizes: 64GB and 256GB, as well as two Wi-Fi options: Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi cellular.

A front camera and back camera are features of the iPad Air, and the design is thin, lightweight, and modern. At the moment, you can buy the Apple iPad Air from as little as £579 at Amazon.

With the standard iPad, we love how accessible the tablet is; the iPad has the same chipset as the iPad Pro, and we found the performance and user experience was fantastic. However, in our iPad 2022 release date page, we thought the design had some catching up to do in comparison to the modern-looking iPad Air.

What's the difference between an iPad and an iPad Pro?

The iPad Pro is the most expensive model in the iPad series, and we've broken down how it differs to the standard iPad.

The iPad Pro truly is the best of the best in the Apple iPad series, just a few of its notable benefits are: it's lightning fast, brilliant for working and for creative tasks, vibrant display, easy to set up, user accessibility is top-notch, and the Apple Pencil increases your productivity.

At the moment, you can get £99.01 off the iPad Pro (2022) with 128GB storage, plus Wi-Fi and Cellular.

While the iPad Pro is the fastest, most powerful iPad ever made, you should consider whether what you're wanting to use your tablet for actually requires that much power. If you're planning on getting rid of your laptop and work exclusively on an iPad, then opt for the iPad Pro. If you're hoping to communicate with loved ones via video call and watch your favourite shows on a streaming service, then maybe shop for the standard iPad.

In our iPad Pro 2021 review we said that Apple has thrown its very best technology at the device to appeal to a (smaller) audience that will truly appreciate the increase in power, speed and functionality that accompanies the high price tag. This may not be you, and that's fine! There are plenty of fantastic iPad deals to be had.
