There are brilliant cheap iPad deals available all year if you know where to look. Luckily, the editors at Macworld UK do. We are always on the look out for deals, offers and discounts on iPads, and we share the very best iPad deals with you here every day.

We'll help you find the best place to buy an iPad, whatever your budget. You'll find deals on the latest iPad models, including the iPad Pro, but also on older models that are still worth buying and could offer huge savings.
If you've yet to decide which iPad you'd like to buy, check out our iPad buying guide 2018.
Apple Refurbished Store
One of our favourite tricks is the Apple Refurbished Store. There, you'll find iPads with huge discounts, some of them on the latest models. These are items that have been returned, but you will really struggle to spot any evidence of that.
Apple replaces the battery and outer shell of every refurbished iPad, and you'll still get all of the accessories and manuals that would come with a new model. Plus, you'll also get the same one-year warranty as a brand-new iPad.
The only thing that gives the game away is the box - Apple replaces the original with a white box to prevent people from buying the discounted models and selling them as new.
You can take a look at iPads in the Apple Refurbished Store here.
Of course, the Refurbished Store isn't the only place offering savings on iPads. You can find great deals elsewhere and we've scoured the web to find them.
From here on we'll be focusing on UK deals, as we're based in the UK. For the best Apple deals in the US, check out Macworld US's guide to what's on offer.

Where to find iPad deals
We've already mentioned the Apple Refurbished Store, which we'd always recommend checking before you buy an iPad, but other retailers offer discounts on iPads, too.
You'll often find great deals from third-party reseller KRCS on iPads.
It's also worth checking for iPad deals (and related accessories such as software, keyboards and mice) from the following retailers:
If you've found that you're missing out on Amazon's Lightning deals, which run for just a few hours and offer limited stock, we'd recommend signing up for Amazon's 30 day free trial of Prime, which will get you access to deals 30 minutes before everyone else. Plus, you'll get free next-day delivery with the Prime trial, as well as access to Prime Instant Video and more.
Best iPad Student Deals
Another great resource to help you save is the Macworld UK's Student Deals page, particularly the Tech & Mobile section. Right now, Apple is offering up to 10% off Macs, which includes 5% off iPads. You also get up to 50% off Apple Care and 8% off accessories.
Simply create an account, log in, and verify your student status, and the discount is yours. See all Macworld UK student tech deals here.
