Best Amazon Prime Day iPad deals you can expect
Apple’s iPad is by far the most popular and best-selling tablet in the world, and for good reason. Even the budget model is extremely powerful and well able to take full advantage of the iPadOS operating system, meaning it can handle everything from schoolwork to video editing. The more expensive iPad Air and iPad Pro have a modern design and support for premium accessories, and are even more capable.
During Amazon Prime Day 2022, we’ll likely see the budget iPad again, which is already quite affordable at $329, and gets reasonable discounts from around $50-100. Although it has an outdated design, this is still a perfect tablet for kids, students or anyone on a budget. It supports the 1st gen Apple Pencil, so it can be used for taking notes and drawing, and as mentioned before, it’s quite powerful despite its affordable nature.
The mid-tier iPad, the iPad Air 5, also known as the iPad Air (2022), is also expected to be discounted for Amazon Prime Day 2022. This tablet is the perfect middle ground — not as expensive as the iPad Pro, but still with its modern design and support for the same accessories, including the 2nd generation Apple Pencil.
So anyone who wants to step up from the budget iPad but aren’t interested in spending too much for the iPad Pro bells and whistles they may not need (more cameras, faster screen refresh rate, etc.) ) Should go with the iPad Air.
As mentioned, the 11-inch iPad Pro is expected to have some features that the Air doesn’t, such as a 120Hz refresh rate (as opposed to 60Hz), which essentially means using it feels smoother and faster. It also has an extra camera and a LiDAR sensor, plus bigger storage options, up to two whole terabytes! That means 2000 GB. As you’d expect, though, these storage options can get pretty pricey, so stay tuned for the best iPad Pro Amazon Prime Day 2022 deals right here when the time comes!
Apple’s biggest, latest, and greatest iPad Pro 12.9-inch is also likely to be discounted for Amazon Prime Day 2022. What sets this one apart from the 11-inch iPad Pro above isn’t just the size of the screen, but the technology behind it. This 12.9-inch iPad Pro has a mini LED display and is currently the only iPad to do so. This means the screen is pretty close to AMOLED screens at reproducing pitch blacks, and it generally looks better than LCD. If you love watching movies at night, or just want the biggest and best Apple tablet, stay tuned for the best Amazon Prime Day deals – right here!
While the bigger iPads steal the show, the latest iPad mini has its place in some people’s lives. It’s small, portable, has support for Apple Pencil (2nd generation) and looks modern. If you like small tablets and maybe want to buy the best one available for less, stay tuned for deals on these during Prime Day 2022.
Best Amazon Prime Day Samsung Galaxy Tab Deals You Can Expect
Second only to Apple, Samsung dominates most of what’s left of the tablet market and is arguably the only brand that continues to release premium Android tablets to this day.
Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab S8 and S8+ models are among the only Android tablets to rival what Apple’s iPad has to offer, and even more. Pro users will be pleased to know that all Galaxy S8 tablets come with a free S Pen stylus and have Samsung DeX support, the latter being a desktop interface that the user can activate at any time. So from a standard tablet Android interface, the S8 can morph into something akin to a Windows tablet — with windowed apps and a taskbar.
The latest massive 14.6-inch Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra from the Korean company is likely to be one of the most sought-after tablets during Amazon Prime Day 2022.
Last year the Tab S7 and S7+ models were discounted up to $166 during Prime Day, so we can expect similar deals or even bigger discounts on these models this year, especially with the newer models out now.
Samsung also has some great budget tablets like the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, which you should definitely look forward to during Amazon Prime Day 2022, if you want a good tablet with a stylus at a nice low price.
Of course, in the even lower spectrum, we’ll also see Samsung’s budget Galaxy A-series tablets discounted on Prime Day 2022. Stay tuned!
Best Amazon Prime Day Fire Tablet Deals You Can Expect
Amazon’s Fire tablets are extremely popular thanks to how affordable and easy to use they are for both kids and adults. It’s no surprise that Amazon’s own tablet deals get great discounts during Prime Day.
Last year, the Amazon Fire HD 10 and 8, which are already quite affordable, got up to $90 during Prime Day. So we can expect similar Fire HD 10 and 8 discounts, if not better in 2022.
And if you’re looking for one or more children’s tablets, whether it’s for gaming, learning or as an e-reader, we can also reasonably expect some great Fire Kids tablet discounts this Prime Day. Last time, the Fire 7 Kids tablet and the Fire HD 8 Kids tablet were $40 and $70 off, respectively. Stay tuned, we might see them discounted even further during Amazon Prime Day 2022!
Best Amazon Prime Day Lenovo Tablet Deals You Can Expect
Lenovo has comfortably carved a niche in the midrange and budget tablet market, offering its own unique models with a kickstand. Last year we saw a lot of Lenovo tablets discounted on Prime Day, so 2022 will be no different. Prime Day 2022 Lenovo tablet deals are likely to include discounts on the Lenovo Tab K10 and the Yoga Smart Tab. Stay tuned!
Which tablet should I buy during Amazon Prime Day 2022?
If you want a secure and generally great tablet for gaming, watching movies, surfing or even working, the iPad Air is the way to go. It’s significantly cheaper than the 11-inch iPad Pro, but still has a modern design. And since it’s already reasonably priced by default, don’t miss out on getting it through a Prime Day discount! We’ll have the best deals on it and other iPads when the time comes.
If you are an Android fan and want an Android tablet, you will find that the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is the best you can get in 2022. And last but not least, if you want a basic e-reader or a basic tablet for kids, nothing beats the affordable price of Amazon’s own Fire HD tablets.
