While Apple’s entry-level iPad is great for casual use, the Apple iPad Air is for when you need a little bit more oomph. It’s speedy, sleek and powerful. What more could you want?
And now’s the time to act, because Amazon has the Rose Gold version on sale for $675 — you’ll save $74, an all-time low. That's impressive, considering Apple products rarely go on sale. You'll be in good company too: The Apple iPad Air is so popular, it’s earned a five-star rating from more than 9,500 reviewers.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
The Apple iPad Air Wi-Fi-only model is slightly larger than the previous iteration, with a 10.9-inch Retina display compared to 10.2. It’s also zippier, thanks to Apple’s A14 Bionic chip (the older model uses the A12 processor). Plus, it has 256GB of on-board storage instead of 32GB. In just about every way, the Apple iPad Air is bigger, faster, sharper and sleeker.
Says a fan: “Easiest and most powerful iPad Apple offers next to the Pro.”
Your on-the-go companion
There’s a reason it’s called the iPad Air: It only weighs a pound. So slip it in your tote and off you go.
“...It's a bit faster, a bit thinner, a bit lighter, and a bit shinier than all the tablets I've used before,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “But, taken altogether—and taken along with the second-generation Apple Pencil—it feels like an entirely new experience. I haven't been this struck by a new device in a while...this is a great little device, it fits itself into my workflow immediately. I think the highest praise I can give it is that it's amazing how quickly it effectively disappeared: Within a couple days of using it, I stopped noticing it, because everything about writing and taking notes with the iPad and the Pencil felt second nature; it felt like it had always been there.”
At $675 (was $749), the Apple iPad Air combines the power of the iPad Pro with the light-as-a-feather, compact design of the standard iPad. If you want more speed and power than the entry-level version but you’re not ready to spring for the Pro, this is the one to get.
Take it from this five-star reviewer: "My new favorite toy."
