The best iPad Pro deals right now: December 2022
A range of Apple iPad Pro tablets, each with different specifications, are currently on sale. Here are the best iPad Pro deals for the holidays, including one for $400 off a 12.9-inch model.
Apple is notorious for having high-quality—albeit, high priced—products that, well, never really go on sale. So when you snag a discount on any Apple product, it’s worth noting.
And, if you can spot a deal on Apple’s most powerful and impressive tablet—the iPad Pro—it’s worth buying. The iPad Pro is by far the most expensive tablet Apple makes, but there are still discounts to be had, especially around the holiday shopping season.
While ZDNET editors are collecting the best iPad deals we could find in a separate guide, I couldn’t help but notice there are so many iPad Pro models on sale. Whether you want last year’s model (5th generation) or the latest and greatest with an M2 chip (6th generation), there are literally dozens of discounts available at all the top retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo.
Here are the best iPad Pro sales — listed below for you to quickly peruse, add to your cart, and move on with your day.

Yes, it can. The new M2 chip makes it a powerhouse tablet, and, when combined with iPadOS, it is as close as you can get to a laptop without actually buying a laptop.
