It’s a good time to be a late adopter, as the last-gen M2 iPad Pros are falling to record low prices on their way out the door, allowing you to save anywhere from $200 to $400. Apple’s M4-based iPad Pros may be the hot new tablets for 2024, with ultrathin builds and OLED displays, but 2022’s iPad Pros are still formidable slates for doing just about all necessary iPaddy things.
The cheapest way into one of these M2 iPad Pros is the base 11-inch model with 128GB of storage, selling for $599 ($200 off) at Best Buy. Stepping up to the 256GB model runs $699 (also $200 off), and the beefy 512GB is $799 (saving $300).
These discounts drop the 2022 11-inch iPad Pro down to the same price as the new 2024 iPad Air that just got the same M2 processor (because choosing an iPad must always be confusing as hell, apparently). However, opting for the older Pro over the new Air gets you a higher 120Hz refresh screen, Face ID, more cameras, and an extra GPU core.
The 2022 iPad Pro touts a speedy M2 processor, a hover feature with the second-gen Apple Pencil, and support for Wi-Fi 6E. However, its design remains unchanged from the 2021 model.

If you want a bigger screen, you can get the 2022 12.9-inch iPad Pro with M2 processor for as low as $799 ($300 off) with 128GB of storage, $899 ($300 off) with 256GB, or $999 ($400 off) with 512GB — each available from Best Buy.
Just like the 11-inch above, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro offers Face ID, an M2 processor, and 120Hz refresh. However, by picking the big boy, you also get a lovely Mini LED screen. It may not be quite as fancy or nice as the Tandem OLED in the new ultrathin M4 model, but it’s still an excellent panel that’s nice and bright. This makes the outgoing iPad Pro a much better buy than the new 13-inch iPad Air with the same processor that its discounted pricing is currently matching.
Apple’s 2022 iPad Pro comes with a fast M2 processor and supports Wi-Fi 6E but otherwise shares the same design as its predecessor. The larger 12.9-inch model sports a higher-quality Mini LED panel than the 11-inch version.
