It’s as rare as a four-leaf clover to see top-of-the-line Apple products on sale, but among these iPad deals, there lies a singular opportunity.

On top of all these great details, the 2020 iPad Pro has a USB-C connection for fast charging and file transfers and a whopping 10-hour battery life. Add an Apple Pencil (sold separately, like the keyboard), and you have a powerful creative tool as well.
