The iPad Pro offers similar performance capabilities to the 2018 MacBook Pro, and is the most powerful iPad ever released.

Apple's new iPad Pro enables you to connect all manner of devices via its USB-C connector. The bigger cutout is found on the right side of the tablet and it's needed to charge the new Apple Pencil wirelessly.

Zack Nelson, the YouTuber known for conducting endurance tests on electronic gadgets on his channel JerryRigEverything, recently put the 11-inch model of Apple iPad Pro (2018) through its paces.

The YouTuber then proceeds to scratching the entire chassis of iPad Pro using a metal blade, with the body getting scratches all around, but still remaining intact. Because it's a iPad Black Friday 2018 deal, there's no guarantee it'll be in stock for long. In the meantime, you can add a calendar reminder for Apple's shopping event here. If you don't want to shop at Walmart, B&H Photo now has the same iPad for 284.95, and they don't charge tax.

Of course, we'll be updating you on all of the iPad Black Friday deals as the night continues. If we can read anything into the sales available a year ago, Apple is likely to throw-in a gift card with the purchase of its flagship products. The iPad is fine for day-to-day use, just don't abuse it and it won't break. It make for a great Christmas gift since Apple priced this particular iPad really well to begin with (remember when they used to cost $499 when they first launched). It's worth the full price, so it's an even better bargain with this Black Friday sale.

Walmart's iPad deal actually lets you save on shipping too. Apple is advising users to mark their calendars for the upcoming four-day shopping event that starts this Friday.
