If you find something you love, don't let the 2019 iPad hold you back.
There are some great alternatives on the market right now and we recommend going hands-on with them ahead of the 2019 iPad's launch. If you find something you like at a price you love, go with your gut.
The 2018 iPad Pro and the 9.7-inch iPad are all excellent devices and all of them run the company's iOS 12 operating system.
We could see prices on these models dip a bit when the 2019 iPad arrives, but you don't have to wait to save. We've seen a bunch of deals emerge in early 2019.
There's a trade-in that drops the price of the iPad Pro 2018 to $549 at Best Buy and a few other deals you should be aware of.
There are also several top notch Android tablet options out there including Samsung's Galaxy Tab S4 and Galaxy Tab A 10.5.
