B&H Photo is offering Apple’s previous generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro Wi-Fi + Cellular 512GB for $699 shipped. This is down from its $1,279 original price and is a match of our last mention. For comparison, Apple’s latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro Cellular + Wi-Fi 512GB would be $1,499. Though not the latest-and-greatest, this iPad is still a fantastic option for those looking for a larger device. You’ll still be able to use Apple’s Smart Keyboard and Pencil with this model. Plus, it has a 120Hz ProMotion display, which is absolutely phenomenal.

If you want an arguably better typing experience, opt for the Brydge Keyboard at $170 shipped on Amazon. I currently have this keyboard on my iPad Pro and it’s a great option for those who want a little more travel in their keys. Plus, the hinge is far more versatile than the fixed positioning of the Smart Keyboard.

For those looking to save a bit more on their typing experience, check out the OMOTON Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard for $16 Prime shipped when you clip the on-page coupon would be a great option. The main downside here is there’s nothing to hold it to your iPad, but if you carry it in a backpack, it gets the same job done.
