We saw some decent deals on iPads on Black Friday, with stores offering some pretty chunky savings on Apple's much-loved tablets. And the good news is that if you're a musician who's thinking of upgrading - or perhaps you're planning on buying your first iPad - there are still bargains to be had as we head into Cyber Monday music deals territory.
There are plenty of reasons to consider an iPad, of course - it has a great range of DAWs, synths, effects and other apps that you won't find anywhere other than on iOS.
Whether you’re looking to save on the standard iPad or the Air - which we think hits a real sweet spot for music makers - you can pick up an Apple tablet for a great price this weekend, and now the flagship Pro version has been discounted, too. You can find your perfect iPad below.
