And the final piece of the iPad Pro jigsaw: the Magic Keyboard, which genuinely makes the iPad Pro 12.9 into more of a computer.*

Right now, I’ve found a couple of deals in the US: Walmart has it for $298, which is just over $50 off. However, Best Buy has it on sale for $199, but it looks like stock is severely limited.

In the UK, John Lewis is your pal, bringing the keyboard out for £164.50, which is a real steal. It says ‘reduced to clear’, which is an odd thing to say for an on-sale Apple product.

*MORE of a computer, not into a fully-fledged PC rival. Apple likes to say that it’s as good, but there are a lot of small niggles in terms of the compatability of some browsers and the user interface – as well as the app experience – that mean it’s better for entertainment and smaller, more powerful editing tasks.

If you’re going to buy that iPad Pro deal, then you should be thinking about getting an Apple Pencil as well – it’s going to have a real use, and the second-gen model, magnetically sitting on the flat edge of the tablet itself – and it’s $99, which is $30 off. 23%? Yes.

Look, I know it’s expensive for a stylus, and there are good Apple Pencil alternatives… but if you want the full iPad Pro experience, it’s a good investment.

OK, iPad lovers – here’s the best deal you’re going to find right now: the iPad Pro for $100 at Amazon (if you’re in the US).

It’s for the iPad Pro 12.9 – an exceptional model, and the one that I love the most for the larger-screened experience it brings.

It’s down from $1099 to $999, which is only 9% off, but a decent saving for something that we rate as a tablet… the screen alone is to die for.

If you want to go up in the sizes, you can get the 1TB version for $1699, which is another $100 off but is a smaller saving.

OK, we’ve spent the 72 hours over Black Friday looking for the best Cyber Monday iPad deals, and – we have to be honest – the deals are drying up a little bit as we approach the actual day itself.

That said, it’s not all terrible. There are some deals available above, but in the main we’re not seeing the same sales that appeared on Black Friday.

Fear not though, dear reader. There’s still a load of stuff that you can do to prep, the best iPad Pro deal we saw during Black Friday is still going, and… don’t forget, we like talking to you.
