Apple, the developer of top products including the iPad, iPhone, and Mac PCs, rarely discounts its devices.
However, you can find sales if you know where to look. The iPad tablet, for example, is a popular tool for studies, creative applications, and productivity. Still, with so many generations on the market alongside variants such as the iPad, iPad Pro, and iPad mini, it's far from impossible to pick up a discount device.
We've rounded up the best iPad deals, including accessories, that we could find across various retailers so you can snag an iPad or accompaniment for less.

We chose these deals on iPad tablets based on trusted retailers, discounted prices, and product reviews (both good and bad). Deals on tablets change daily and even hourly, so if you're interested in the best discounts, be sure to check a retailer's website often for deals of the day.
Any iPad model will be suitable if you need a tablet for basic tasks, including browsing the internet or streaming, so this is often a question of individual taste. Senior users might want to opt for a larger display in the name of eye comfort; however, all iPads come with accessibility features and the Siri voice assistant. Apple's largest display comes in at 12.9 inches although there are rumors that the tech giant is working on future devices with larger screens.
Apple iPads -- arguably, the classic iPad and iPad Pro, in particular -- may be able to replace your traditional tower PC or laptop. There's much to be said about the portability of iPads when using your tablet for work and productivity purposes, especially when combined with accessories such as a keyboard and a stylus.
However, multitasking can be challenging and standard laptops can still provide more flexibility when it comes to managing your workload. Despite how flexible iPads can be, they may also struggle with other purposes, such as gaming, compared to your PC.
