Apple’s M2 iPad Pro lineup does not pack significant upgrades over the 2021 models. If you don’t need the extra power, you can get the M1 12.9-inch iPad Pro for $200 off on Amazon.

The entry-level variant of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro for $899, down from $1,099. You can use the money saved towards additional accessories or upgrade to a higher storage variant.

Get the M1 iPad Pro and save your money

Rumors indicated Apple’s 2022 iPad Pro lineup could feature MagSafe wireless charging and a glass back. Contrary to all the leaks, the only upgrade on the 2022 iPad Pro refresh is the faster M2 chip. If you don’t have a professionally heavy workflow, all that power won’t be of much use. Instead, get the perfectly capable M1 12.9-inch iPad Pro and save your money.

In Cult of Mac‘s M1 iPad Pro review, we loved its big and beautiful screen, performance, and Center Stage support.

It has the same feature set as the newer model, including Stage Manager support in iPadOS 16. You can connect it to an external monitor or high-bandwidth accessories via the USB-C port. Despite its age, the M1 chip inside the 2021 iPad Pro is powerful enough to handle your demanding workloads. And it features a stunning 12.9-inch miniLED-based Liquid Retina XDR display. With iPadOS 16, you can use the tablet as a reference monitor for your creative work.

Save $200 on the 2021 12.9-inch iPad Pro

Amazon is offering a flat $200 off on all the 12.9-inch iPad Pro variants, including the cellular models. Thanks to the discount, you can get the 256GB Wi-Fi iPad Pro for $999, which is still $100 cheaper than the MSRP of the entry-level 128GB model. The 2TB storage configuration is out of stock, but you can get the 1TB model with a similar discount. All 2021 iPad Pro models with up to 512GB storage pack 8GB RAM, while the 1TB and 2TB models are equipped with 16GB RAM.

Apple is no longer officially selling the M1 iPad Pro, and stocks will run out soon. So, pull the trigger on the deal you like as quickly as possible.
