Amazon Prime Day starts June 21, and we expect Fire Tablets—especially the new Fire HD 10—to get a discount, but there are already several deals available on other tablets. If you’ve been thinking about getting one for yourself or picking one up as a gift, check out the deals below.
The Best Amazon Prime Day Tablet Deals
Some of Apple and Samsung’s most popular tablets are on sale currently, but we expect more deals on these devices in the coming days. We also expect some iPads to get deeper discounts, but they’ll likely be backordered with longer shipping times as we get closer to Prime Day. Check back to see when Amazon’s Fire tablets go on sale.
Apple iPad 8th Gen 32GB 10.2-Inch WiFi Tablet
Apple’s newest iPad is significantly faster than the older 7th Gen model. The new 8th Gen model comes equipped with the company’s A12 Bionic SoC that first appeared in the iPhone XS, and this chip far outstrips the A10 SoC in the older 7th Gen tablets. The 8th Gen tablet also has a slightly higher resolution screen and is in general an all-around enhanced version of its predecessor. It remains the best tablet in the $300 range for students and casual users.
Apple iPad Air 4th Gen 64GB 10.9-Inch Retina WiFi Tablet
The fourth-generation iPad Air gives you the power of an iPad Pro for less money, making it the best Apple tablet to buy. It fits a 10.9-inch, 2,360-by-1,640 screen into the same body size as the 10.2-inch iPad by reducing the bezels, and comes equipped with Apple’s A14 Bionic processor, which is more than capable of running top apps and games.

Since its release, it got a $50 discount for a short period of time from Amazon, so it’s possible we see that same discount again during Prime Day.
Apple iPad Pro 12.9-Inch 128GB WiFi Tablet (2021 Model)
Apple’s 2021 12.9-inch iPad Pro comes equipped with the company’s M1 SoC that contains eight CPU and GPU cores that were custom designed for Apple’s mobile devices.
