TL;DR: Select variants of the new Apple iPad Pro and iPad Air are on sale for their lowest-ever prices on Amazon, saving you as much as 23%.
If I may put on my tin-foil hat for a moment, all signs seem to point to a new version of the iPad Pro arriving sometime later this year.
For one thing, Apple’s decision to hold out on updating its powerful premium tablet in 2019 means it’s probably due for a refresh very soon. (Such is the tech industry — everything moves so goshdarn fast.) But what really sold me is the fact that latest iPad Pro is currently enjoying its biggest-ever discount on Amazon, as if the retailer’s trying to clear out some of its existing stock and make way for that new-new.
Anyhoo, since Apple itself has yet to release the slightest crumb of detail about a hypothetical 2020 edition of the iPad Pro, you should absolutely consider snagging one of those 2018 models if you’re in the market for a new tablet — at up to 17% off right now, they’re hardly ever this cheap.
For its part, that gorgeous tablet is a Mashable’s Choice Award-winner packing some serious power — “more power than almost anyone will ever need,” tech reporter Raymond Wong acknowledged in his review. It runs on the A12X Bionic, a real beast of a mobile chip that makes smooth gaming and streaming possible, and features a long-lasting battery that delivers up to 10 hours of usage on a single charge. Ideal for the intense multitasker or the creative professional, it’s a real workhorse with tons of potential.
If you’re concerned that the iPad Pro might be overkill for your computing needs (fair), you’ll probably prefer the 2019 iPad Air — it’s got a 10.5-inch Retina Display, offers support for the Apple Pencil, and features the same speedy A12 Bionic chip that powers the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. It’s also a Mashable’s Choice Award-winner, and at the moment, one of its variants also happens to be listed at its lowest price in Amazon history: Normally $779, you can order the space gray model with WiFi and cellular and 256GB of storage for just $599 (a 23% savings).
Still rather have the iPad Pro? Coolio — here are your two options as far as storage size and connectivity go:
