It's the big one.

Apple

The persistent rumors about two new iPads coming in the fall may help explain the frequent discounts being applied to virtually all of the models in Apple's current lineup. The entry-level iPad, which was marked down significantly last week, is now back to its previous price. This week, the best deals are on the two iPad Pros.

Regularly priced at $999, the 64GB 12.9-inch model costs $800 at Amazon at the moment -- that's a 20% discount and the lowest price we've seen to date for Apple's super-premium tablet. (The 1TB version is a whopping $400 off.) The 11-inch model is also on sale at Amazon, for $675, which is just $30 higher than its all-time low.

The current deals on the newer iPad Mini and iPad Air remain negligible; we'd recommend waiting for the next round of discounts on them to come through before buying. And if you're looking to pick up the lower-priced iPad, it might be worthwhile to wait it out, as bigger price breaks may return in the next few weeks. 

Note that we're focused on the Wi-Fi versions 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.

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the Cadillac of Apple's tablet lineup and, arguably, the entire tablet category. Amazon is currently selling the baseline 64GB model for $800 -- the lowest price we've seen to date. Likewise for the deluxe 1TB model, which is also at its all-time low of $1,350. You get a gigantic, gorgeous display, scary-fast performance and lots of bells and whistles including Face ID and support for the Apple Pencil 2. But the price is high, which makes finding a worthwhile discount a must.

Amazon has ramped up its discount on the slightly smaller iPad Pro. The 64GB base model now costs $675 -- nearly $100 less than it did last week, and 15% off its $799 list price.

Apple still sells the entry-level 9.7-inch iPad for $329, but it's available for $249 at plenty of other stores, including Amazon and Walmart. This excellent, all-purpose tablet continues to set the bar for design, features and performance in this price range.

Best Buy was briefly selling the 128GB iPad for $300, but the price has now crept back up to where it's been for months, $330.

The smallest model in the current iPad lineup comes with the smallest discount. You can find the iPad Mini at most retailers for $384 -- that's $15 off the Apple Store list price.

The iPad Air sits between the entry-level 9.7-inch iPad, which is usually on sale for about $250, and the 11-inch iPad Pro, which starts at $799 and has a more powerful A12X processor.
