Apple iPad Pro (2020) 1TB £1269 £954 at Amazon (save £315) Here’s one of the best iPad deals around. It’s on the 11-inch 2020 iPad Pro, which boasts Apple’s insanely fast A12Z Bionic processor. You can save a bundle on the 1TB version, if you’re quick.

iPad Pro 12.9-inch 512GB (Refurbished) £1169 £849 at Apple Store (save £319) The other option is to go for a refurbished model. The Apple Store sells them at huge discounts, so its a great way to get the iPad you want at an crazy-low price.

Best iPad Air deals

The iPad Air is the slimmest and lightest full-size iPad that Apple makes (only the iPad Mini equals it for slimness and bests it on the weight scales). At 10.5in, its screen is pretty big and there’s HDR support for showing off Netflix in all its glory.

Its sonic abilities are decent too, marred only by the slightly awkward speaker placement (they’re on the bottom when held in portrait mode, so if you watch a film in landscape all the audio comes from one side).

It too works with the Apple Pencil if you fancy getting creative, but like most modern tablets there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Air is Apple’s best all-rounder – it’s powerful enough for most tasks, the battery life lasts all day, and it’s slim and light enough to not weigh you down. This means for most of us looking to watch, listen and play on the move, it’s the best bet out of Apple’s iPad range.

Best iPad Mini deals

If you’re always on the go and want a small screen for dipping into e-books or casual watching, the iPad Mini could be your ideal travel companion. 

Its 7.9in screen is the smallest of any iPad, making it better suited to TV shows and YouTube videos than proper, cinematic viewing. But the fact it has the highest pixel density of any Apple tablet makes it a joy to watch on.

The speakers aren’t going to rival the best desktop computer speakers, but they’re not bad considering the size. And we’d wager that 99 percent of listening will be done through a pair of wireless headphones – in which case, the iPad Mini excels.

Put simply, this is arguably the best iPad around, and well worth considering for anyone always on the move.

Best iPad Pro deals

The iPad Pro is the biggest and most powerful tablet Apple makes. It’s aimed squarely at creative professionals – those pointy-glasses-wearing content creators who illustrate, design, animate and produce. And it’s perfectly suited to the task.

The latest range, launched in late 2021, includes 11-inch and 12.9-inch screen sizes. In our review of the Award-winning Apple iPad Pro 12.9, we called its mini LED-lit display “the pinnacle of portable cinema”.  

Then there’s the 2020 model, also available with 11-inch or 12.9-inch edge-to-edge Liquid Retina (OLED) displays with 120Hz Pro Motion technology. Both the 2021 and 2020 models should prove notably smoother than the version launched in 2017. 

The 2017 model has a 10.5in screen and is remains a good buy, especially if you can grab deal. It’s an OLED panel so you get stunning contrast ratio. And if it’s not big enough for you, you can always go for the more recent 12.9in model instead.

Apple’s own processors won’t slow down the action no matter how demanding your graphical needs, and it’s compatible with the Apple Pencil stylus (sold separately) for doodling on screen. Add all-day battery life and superb sound, and you’ve effectively got a mobile office for today’s creative professional.

The iPad Pro is bigger than Apple’s other tablets, and its feature-set is a little overkill for just consuming media. In other words, if you’re after a machine for just watching films, playing games and listening to music, you might be better served by the cheaper iPad Air. But if you’re creating content as well as consuming it, look no further.

Best iPad deals

The standard iPad is now in its ninth generation – and it just gets better and better.

Once the only member of the iPad range, the standard iPad is now considered the entry-level model, with a more modest price tag than its siblings. That also means it’s less well-specced – it has less storage than the rest of the family, less power, and not as thin as the iPad Air, with a slightly smaller screen. 

The latest entry-level iPad, the iPad 9, features a 10.2-inch display and offers a bunch of improvements including a faster A13 Bionic chipset, a new front-facing camera, and a True Tone display for the very first time. It runs the same iOS as Apple’s other tablets, giving it market-leading user-friendliness.

If you’re on a tight budget, this is the tablet for you. We’ve yet to review the 2021 iPad 9, but we were mightily impressed with the 2020 iPad (8th Gen), which picked up a What Hi-Fi Award.
