If you just locked in the Black Friday discount on Apple’s latest 10.2-inch iPad, Amazon is now marking down a must-have companion accessory. The official Apple Smart Keyboard for 10.2-inch iPad is now on sale for the lowest price we have ever seen at $79.99 shipped. Normally fetching $159, today’s offer stacks up to nearly 50% in savings and is well below our previous $114 mention from earlier in the fall. This is also $17 under the previously-set all-time low. Arriving with a folio style design, Apple’s in-house Smart Keyboard turns its latest 10.2-inch iPad (as well as some other devices noted below) into more of a workstation thanks to the physical typing experience. Pairing to your tablet via Apple’s Smart Connector, there’s no need to fuss with Bluetooth or recharging the accessory, either.

Fittingly for the Smart Keyboard above, we’re still tracking near-holiday pricing live on Apple’s companion 10.2-inch iPad. Sitting within $11 of the all-time low, the ongoing price cut marks a return to the Black Friday discount at $280 via Amazon. That continues to be down from the usual $329 going rate and makes for the most affordable iPadOS experience currently in Apple’s lineup.
And speaking of other must-have accessories for iPad, Apple’s latest Magic Keyboard will complement the experience of an 11-inch Pro model at its best price of the year. Dropping down to $210 in both white and black styles, this keyboard folio is $89 off and marking a rare chance to bring the unique floating hinge design with built-in trackpad to your iPad Pro workstation for the lowest price in years.
