If you’re on a budget though, they are not particularly cheap. Apple tend to have
strict price controls and don’t offer much in the way of discounts themselves.
Other retailers tend to stick to the Apple price protocol so often there isn’t much
room for manoeuvre on the prices.
It’s worth bearing in mind that there are other tablets that tend to be cheaper than iPads. However, if you have set your heart on having an iPad, then here’s some tips for trying to secure a discount and/or some other kind of deal.
We’ll be looking at Wi-Fi only iPads. This is the simplest way to buy an iPad as you don’t need to think about network issues or buying a SIM for your iPad. You will simply be using the iPad at home on your home Wi-Fi. The four iPads are available here: https://www.apple.com/uk/ipad/
The cheapest option is the iPad currently retailing at £319 for the 32 GB option on the Apple website. It goes up to £439 for the 4G compatible model. This is the standard model which is good for browsing the web and standard internet applications. It’s still a little bulky so best used at home. It doesn’t have the processing power of the other iPads as you will see.
The iPad Mini is more expensive with prices starting at £479 but it does have more processing power with its new A15 bionic chip. It starts at 64GB and goes up to a massive 256GB so there’s plenty of storage space on the device. Given its smaller size, it’s great for using on the move so you might want to consider buying a SIM package for it.
The iPad Air is a premium product and supports the “magic keyboard” and Apple Pen. Being able to attach the keyboard can turn it into a laptop with extra processing power. Prices start at £579. Here’s a review of the iPad Air that will run through all the technical bits you need to know and sets out its case for why it considers that this is the best iPad.
Finally, there is the iPad Pro, the top of the range iPad which starts at £999 for 128GB of storage and goes all the way up to a cool £2,149 for 2TB of storage for the Wi-Fi and 5G version! Imagine 2TB of storage in an iPad! It’s considered great for creatives with all that processing power being suitable for editing photos and videos. It is effectively a laptop once you attach Apple’s magic keyboard.
As mentioned though, there are very few discounts to be had and the price
doesn’t vary much. It’s always worth checking to see if there are any voucher
codes out there by Googling it. Online retailers such as Amazon can be cheaper
so always worth having a look there too.
John Lewis is often the same price as Amazon but it is worth bearing in mind that they have an extended 2-year warranty on their electrical items. So, if the price is the same, there is an advantage to buying it at John Lewis.
