The best Cyber Monday tablet deals: iPad, Surface Go, and more

Black Friday 2019 is done and dusted, as the British say, but there are still more deals to come. Cyber Monday is today, and with deals hitting stores across the web and in retail, there’s still time to bag a bargain. This magical Monday will see a vast number of deals across smartphones, TVs, smartwatches, and more. But if you’re here, it’s because you’re after one thing only — a new tablet, and boy are you in the right place. Cyber Monday will see some huge deals on some of the biggest tablets out there, from Apple’s iPads all the way to Amazon’s cheapest Fire tablets.

Many of Cyber Monday’s deals will be similar to those we saw on Black Friday — which is excellent news for anyone who missed the initial deals. However, we expect to come across a few additional deals that exceed the value offered on Friday and across the weekend. But the only way to know for sure is to keep an eye on the biggest deals as they come in — and we’ve gathered them all below. We’ll be updating this list often, so make sure to check back regularly to stay up to date on the best Cyber Monday tablet deals.

There are more deals than just tablets though, and if Apple’s tablets have caught your eye, check out our main rundown of the best Cyber Monday iPad deals. Otherwise, check out our Cyber Monday page for the biggest deals across a range of categories.

The best tablet deals for Cyber Monday

If you’ve been following our Black Friday deals then a lot of what you’ll see underneath will come as no surprise. Apple has waded into the deals hard with a bunch of tempting offers across its range, and you’ll be able to find discounts on almost every form of the world’s most popular tablet range. Amazon is offering heavy discounts on its Fire tablet range, too, and the 7-inch Fire tablet could represent the best value prospect all around. Otherwise, keep an eye on Microsoft’s Surface range and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab series, as there are some excellent bargains to be had from both.

How to create and share WhatsApp QR code for groups

WhatsApp recently released a feature that allowed you to share contacts using a QR Code. This allowed for users to share their own and scan other QR Codes, saving users the trouble of exchanging mobile numbers or contact details. A new feature lets you share WhatsApp QR Code for groups, allowing you to invite others to join your private groups.The feature is currently in beta, but once it becomes public will maintain the same steps.A pre-requisite to this step is being the Admin of a group. This helps prevents members of the group from abusing the feature.In addition, the QR code is static. Anyone with access to the QR code can join the group, so be careful who you share it with.Step 1.If you are the admin of a group, tap on your group settings. You can quickly access this by pressing the header of your group.Alternatively, you can also press the three dots at the top right of the group window, and tapping on Group info.Step 2.Tap on Invite via link. You’ll see a lot of options here, but there will be a new option for QR Code, tap on that.WhatsApp will generate a QR code for that group.Step 3.If you’re looking at scanning the code, go back to your main screen on WhatsApp (where all your chats are located).Press the 3 dots at the top right of the screen and choose Settings. Look to the right of your name and status to see a QR Code icon.Once you tap on it, swipe to the right and you’ll get the option to scan a WhatsApp QR Code.If you’re looking to share the code, you can take a screenshot of the QR code and send it to the person for them to scan via their computer screen using their phone.Alternatively, if the person is in physical distance, they can also scan the code directly from your phone screen.The feature is currently in Beta, and might not be available to all users. You’ll have to wait patiently for the feature to become public.With the help of QR codes, adding people to a group is now further streamlined. You no longer have to add a person as a contact to add them to a group.Errors, omissions? Be sure to let us know what might be wrong and we’ll make an adjustment.

Just $89.95, the MagiMask is the future of AR

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are two topics which have been kicking around for quite some time, with the former dating back decades. And thanks to the advances in phones and consoles, they both continue to get better. And cheaper.Augmented Reality really took off with the launch of Pokemon Go, ushering in an exciting and fun way to blend the real world with collectible characters. Over on the retail front, places like IKEA and Amazon are making AR an instrumental part of their shopping experience.What does the future hold for AR technology? It looks an awful lot like what MagiMask is doing today.Whereas most conventional AR accessories have an image that’s viewed via split-screen, the MakiMask is a singular full-screen experience. What’s more, it’s four times the resolution as compared to today’s common experience. That means fewer headaches and less eye strain.Beyond the AR aspect, the MagiMask is a fun way to enjoy movies and games on your handset.
