Prime Day iPad deals: Available now

We're already seeing a number of bargains on iPads ahead of Prime Day, including the entry-level 32GB iPad for $249, the 128GB model for $329, and the 11-inch iPad Pro for $749. Read on to find out the best iPad deals on Amazon.

We've seen the price of Apple's entry-level iPad dip before, but this is about as low as it gets. You can typically get a brand-new 32GB iPad at the already reasonable price of $329, but it's currently $80 off. For the art lovers in your life, this model offers support for the Apple Pencil, a stylus that lets you scribble and draw on the screen with incredible accuracy.

This isn't the lowest price we've seen on Apple's latest 11-inch iPad Pro, but it's still an adequate discount. You'll get $50 off the two lower storage versions (64GB and 256GB), and even greater discounts are available for higher storage and some cellular models.

Apple doesn't have a lot of competition when it comes to great tablets, and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro makes that gap even more noticeable. You can currently get it for $949, or $50 off the list price, for the 64GB option. Snag even bigger discounts if you move up to higher capacity and cellular options.

Apple's latest iPad Air boasts a 10.5-inch Retina display and the same A12 Bionic processor featured in the iPhone XS. The 65GB option is currently available for $469, or $30 off. While that's not a huge saving, it's still a decent deal compared to the usual $499 list price.

The savings might not be much, but it's still the lowest price we've seen on this brand-new iPad Mini since it was announced earlier this year. The 64GB iPad Mini is available now for $385, or $15 off the typical $399 price. If you want even more storage, save $30 with the 256GB option.
