Best Apple iPad deals: iPad Air and M1 iPad Pro models at lowest prices yet

You can save up to $100 at Amazon on both 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models based Apple's new M1 chip. The lower-cost and still highly capable iPad Air is also heavily discounted.

Unlike Apple's new iPad Pros, which are the first non-Macs to receive Apple's M1 chip, the iPad Air has yet to receive an M1 jolt. If you aren't a creative type who requires the most power from your iPad, however, the iPad Air should have enough muscle and boasts a roomy, 10.9-inch display framed by thin bezels and a host of features, including USB-C and support for the Magic Keyboard and Pencil 2. And right now, the baseline model with 64GB of storage is at its lowest price ever on Amazon with a $99 discount. Need more storage space? The 256GB model is $110 off.

In addition, you can save $50 on the new 11-inch iPad Pro and $100 on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. With their current discounts at Amazon, these models have dropped to the lowest prices we've seen yet.

Apple's 10.9-inch iPad Air with 64GB of storage, in either space gray or green, is $99 off at Amazon, which drops it to its lowest price ever. For most users, a 64GB drive is skimpy and will fill up fast. Thankfully, you can save $110 on the 256GB model in rose gold. Want a different color? The other color options for the 256GB iPad Air are discounted by $99.

We'll be honest: This one is only for those willing to pay a premium for the smaller screen. You're basically paying more to get the same basic specs as the 10.2-inch iPad, but with a more portable 7.9-inch size (albeit with 64GB of storage and a spiffier screen). The 64GB model is selling at a $30 discount and the 256GB model is $59 off.
