Are you looking for a stylus to accompany your iPad? We thought we’d see some Prime Day discounts on the Apple Pencil, but while there are some small savings on the UK’s Apple white wand, there’s no price drop on Amazon in the US. But there’s a saving on our favorite Apple Pencil alternative, the Logitech Crayon, which has been reduced from $69.99 to $62.99 (Opens in a new tab). Available in orange or gray, it works seamlessly with all iPads from the past two years.
There is savings in the UK too, where you can get the Logitech Crayon discounted from $64.99 to £56.25 (Opens in a new tab). And in the UK, Amazon also has a £20 off Apple Pencil 1 (Opens in a new tab) And £5 off an Apple Pencil 2 (Opens in a new tab).
We ticked off $100 savings on the iPad Pro 11 2021 M1-chipped (Opens in a new tab) earlier, but if you want a bigger screen, Amazon also has a $100 iPad Pro 12.9 (Opens in a new tab) which was launched next to it. The 12.9-inch tablet now starts at $999 for a 128GB configuration. Both are not deals on iPad Prime Day, so you can take advantage of the discounts even if you’re not an Amazon Prime day member.
Another alternative to iPad Prime Day deals if you’re looking for a drawing and illustration device is to consider going for a drawing tablet. We’re tracking the best Prime Day graphic tablet deals, and there are plenty of good options. Our pick as a best buy for beginners or those just beginning to experiment with digital art is the XP-Pen Artist Pro 22 reduced by $100 from $499.99 to $399.99 (Opens in a new tab).
This 22-inch is a fairly large option, but if you want a smaller screen, there’s also a $100 off the awesome Huion Kamvas 16 Full HD – now only $319 (Opens in a new tab).
Our pick as the UK’s best buy is the XP-Pen Artist 15.6 Pro which has been reduced by £130 from £399.99 to £269.99.
So, with no official iPad Prime Day deals in the US, what are the alternatives? Well, we’re big fans of Apple here at Creative Bloq, but even we have to realize that the competition is getting better all the time. And one very tempting alternative is Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8, which Amazon has cut its price by up to 25% on this peak day!
Most of the lower 8GB RAM configurations are already sold in the US, but there are still some great deals available on the higher-spec configurations. The best buy is the Surface Pro 8 with 16GB RAM and 256GB SSD which has been reduced by $427 from $1,599.99 to $1,172.99 (Opens in a new tab). If you need more storage, the same 512GB device will be reduced from $1899.99 to $1439.99.
In the UK there are still some options left for lower specs, with the Surface Pro 8 with 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD dropping by £382.45 from £999 to £616.55. (Opens in a new tab). That’s more than a third!
This gives you a tablet with superior performance and style support with the added bonus of being Windows – so you can run full desktop software. This can be a game changer for people who like to use the pen for photo editing and drawing.
As Amazon Prime Day 2022 draws to a close, iPad Prime Day deals remain thin on the ground. In fact, the only specific iPad Prime Day deal we’ve found across Amazon sites in the US and UK is this: £100 – £230 off 2020 iPad Air in the UK.
This deal shouldn’t come as too surprising considering the new iPad Air was released just a couple of months ago, but it’s still a good buy, giving you the change for a stylish iPad that still has excellent performance now at as low as £1. 419. There’s savings across configurations and colors, and you can save from £100 on the 64GB WiFi model (now £419) to £230 off the 256GB WiFi + Cellular model (now £589). 256GB WiFi configuration is £130 off (now £539).
This is a very good savings of up to 26% off the usual retail price, and best of all there is currently still good availability across the five different color options.
Don’t forget that we track all kinds of other Apple deals during Prime Day as well as iPad Prime Day deals. You’ll find the best prices on MacBooks, iMacs, AirPods, Apple Watch, and iPads in our Apple Prime Day Deals Report.
That’s a good savings over the powerful 2021 iPad Pro, the 11-inch model. This is the wi-fi model, 128GB, and it comes in space gray, but most importantly, you can get an iPad Pro with $100 savings on Amazon—it’s less than
$799 to $699 (Opens in a new tab).
Just to give you an idea of who this iPad is best suited for, why not check out our 11-inch iPad Pro review. Its length and brevity is a great piece of kit, but it’s also likely to be overkill for many users – hence the hefty price tag.
A note on the bargain price – We also say $100 was wiped out from the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2021) during Black Friday last year, but that iPad still cost $999. So in context, this is a huge savings over the already cheaper 11-inch version. Respectable deal, really!
This is the best Prime Day iPad deal – but it’s not even a Prime Day deal! We will explain! Now, on Amazon, you can get the 2021 iPad 10.2″ (WiFi, 64GB) for $299, saving you $30 (Opens in a new tab). The thing is, you don’t need a Prime Day membership to get it. So is it the official Prime Day deal (even though it’s on Amazon)?! Um, aaah, who cares! It’s a great deal on a 2021 iPad at a really good price, so we’re excited to be promoting it.
There is a small discount on the latest iPad Air (2022) on Amazon right now. List price is $599 and it’s listed at $559 (Opens in a new tab). This is the iPad Air with the ultra-fast M1 chip and ultra-luxury camera. This offer is available to Prime members and non-Prime members, so get the click!
Want an iPad Air on this rush day? You’re in luck if you’re in the UK as the price of the 2020 iPad Air has dropped to £419 (Opens in a new tab) (This is a £100 discount). We have this model and absolutely love it. This deal is available in rose gold and silver gray and is for Prime members only (sign up here if you’re not a member (Opens in a new tab)).

The iPad Pro is such a powerful piece of gadget that it could give the MacBook Air a run for its money these days. So if you need a tablet that can handle just about anything you want to throw at it, the iPad Pro is the device for you.
This Amazon deal sees the ultra-powerful 12.9-inch 4G iPad Pro with Wi-Fi and a whopping 1TB of storage slashed to just £1,199 (Opens in a new tab) – That’s a huge discount of £270!
For some reason, the iPad deals on Amazon in the US aren’t as widely available as they are in the UK. But that could change as Prime Day continues. Meanwhile, B&H Photo is offering some excellent deals on the Apple tablet, including a $50 discount on the 2021 11-inch iPad Pro, bringing it down to just $749. (Opens in a new tab).
This particular model comes in silver, with an Apple M1 8-Core chip, 8-Core GPU and 16-Core Neural Engine, Liquid Retina display, 128GB SSD and 8GB RAM. There is a limited supply, so if a pro is what you’re after, grab it before they all disappear.

Our iPad Prime Day deals launch is this amazing Amazon offer, which cuts Apple’s standard iPad down to under £300 (Opens in a new tab). If you don’t need a tablet to do any heavy lifting, and simply want one for web, streaming, etc., then this high-quality little device is more than capable.
This model is usually £319, which is a bargain in itself, but you can now take an additional £20 off, bringing it down to just £299. This isn’t the first time Amazon has offered this deal, and it’s always fun. So if you want one, don’t delay because stocks usually fly off the shelves.
