Best Apple iPad deals: Save $100 on previous-gen iPad Pro models – CNET

Apple unveiled new iPad Pros earlier this year, which are the first non-Macs to receive Apple’s M1 chip. The new iPad Pros are available in the same sizes — 11 and 12.9 inches — as the models they replace, but they offer more memory and storage in addition to M1 goodness. The new iPad Pros come with up to 16GB of memory and up to 2TB of storage. A Thunderbolt port is also on board, and the 12.9-inch model boasts Apple’s Liquid Retina XDR display

You won’t find any discounts currently on the new M1-powered iPad Pros, but there are sizable discounts on older models. You can save $100 or more right now on previous-generation iPad Pro models on Amazon, and the eighth-gen iPad is only $299 at Amazon and Walmart. The iPad Air and Mini models also enjoy price cuts on Amazon.

The new 11-inch iPad Pro features Apple’s M1 chip and comes with storage capacities ranging from 128GB to 2TB. Walmart’s brief $50 discount on the 128GB and 256GB models from last month is long gone; there are no price breaks to be found at the moment on any of the new 11-inch iPad models.

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 in gold.
