Why you shouldn’t wait until Prime Day to shop the iPad deals


iPad (2020) 8th Generation

With this year’s Prime Day deals, shoppers are excited about the discounts that Amazon will be offering for the annual shopping event. These offers will include Prime Day iPad deals, which will likely prove to be very popular again as Apple’s tablets are among the best in the market.

However, if you have the budget now, should you still wait for Prime Day to buy a new iPad? There may be huge discounts on various models of Apple’s tablets on June 21 and June 22, but there are a few key reasons why you might want to take advantage of the iPad deals available before Amazon’s shopping event begins.

The various versions of the iPad are fixtures in Nerdshala’ Best Tablets, with the fourth-generation iPad Air as the best overall tablet, the eighth-generation iPad as the best value tablet, the fifth-generation iPad mini as the best 8-inch tablet, and the fifth-generation iPad Mini as the best value tablet. 12.9-inch model of the next generation iPad Pro as the best large-screen tablet. Apple’s tablets stand out among their competition, as can be seen when comparing the iPad Air 4 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, or the iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface Pro X.

With positive reviews on all current iPad models, there will be a large number of shoppers who will choose Apple’s tablets on Prime Day, which could result in shipment delays as Amazon scrambles to fulfill orders. It’s not uncommon for customers to wait a month before receiving a purchased iPad during shopping events, and Prime Day will likely be no exception.

If it’s okay to get your new tablet in July, or maybe even in August if demand is very high, you might be interested in checking out the Prime Day iPad sales that Amazon will be offering. However, if you don’t want to wait that long, or if you need your new iPad as soon as possible, you should buy one ahead of the annual shopping event.

Today’s best iPad deals

If you’ve just decided to buy a new iPad, the good news is that there’s no shortage of iPad deals that are currently available not only from Amazon, but from other retailers as well. It’s unclear whether Prime Day iPad deals will be better, but if these offers are good enough for you, you shouldn’t hesitate to click one of the Buy Now buttons.
