We’re not going to sugarcoat it, folks: iPad deals are becoming few and far between. What few deals there were during Black Friday sales were often restricted to $50 to $70 off on models like the iPad Air, or price cuts that required curbside pickup. Now, withsales starting in earnest on Nov. 30, we’re seeing some discounts return. But for now, you’ll need to be content with only getting decent price cuts if you’re already spending upwards of $1,000 on an 512GB iPad Pro. And many of those you can get come with a shipping date that’s in late December or January — far too late for Christmas.
