Apple’s 11-inch and 13-inch iPad Pros are now $300 off ahead of Prime Day

Best Buy still has a couple of summer sales up its sleeve ahead of this year’s Prime Day deals event, including one on select iPads. You can get an 11-inch Apple iPad Pro for $699 (was $999) and 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro for $799 (was $1,099) at Best Buy.

These are the prices for the 4th generation 11-inch and 6th generation 12.9-inch (sometimes listed as 13-inch) iPad Pros with Wi-Fi and cellular capabilities. Despite the different generations, they are both equipped with the M2 chip. The M4-equipped iPads launched this spring, which might be why these are on sale. Even so, a couple hundred-dollar discount isn’t anything to scoff at for a device that’s still fairly new. If you need them to be even cheaper, you can get the Wi-Fi-only versions.

Despite the gap in generations, the specs don’t differ much. The 12.9-inch screen on the 6th gen iPad Pro features a liquid retina XDR display instead of just the standard liquid retina. It also a slightly longer battery life than its smaller counterpart. Both run on Apple’s powerful M2 chip, which contains an 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU, and support iPadOS 16. These tablets run on 8 GB of RAM, enough for multitasking with apps, photo and video editing, and even basic gaming. 

These iPads offer 128 GB to 512 GB depending on your needs. If you’re an app fiend, you’ll definitely want at least 256 GB. The cheapest is 128 GB of storage. However, specific upgrades have a higher discount to account for the price difference (i.e. the 11-inch iPad Pro with 512 GB has a $400 discount instead of $300).

 

You can read more about this particular model in our iPad Pro 12.9 (2022) review. At the time, it was the “best pro tablet on the planet,” a moniker that doesn’t simply disappear after Apple drops its latest model.
