It’s been a few months since we’ve seen all-time low prices for Apple’s previous-generation iPads. If you’ve been eyeing an iPad, now’s a great time to buy a new one or get an upgrade with Amazon’s deals.
Right now, the 2021 iPad 9 is on sale for less than $270. The 10.2-inch Apple iPad features WiFi and LTE, a touchscreen retina display for watching all your favorite shows, and an ultra-wide front-facing camera plus for video calls. The 256GB iPad is on sale for $399 in both silver and space gray. Usually $479, this iPad deal is a record low price for Apple’s previous-gen iPad.
The fifth-gen iPad Air was released in 2022 and is an excellent iPad Pro alternative equipped with Apple’s almighty M1 chip. Whether you want a tablet for work or taking care of online chores from bed, the iPad Air 5 is both lightweight and powerful. Right now, the fifth-gen iPad Air is on sale at Amazon. You can save up to $70 on multiple colors and models with a 10.9-inch display.
Whether you’re a professional artist or an art student creating professional-quality work, the iPad Air’s Liquid Retina display is great for creating high-quality illustrations in Procreate or motion graphics in Adobe Spark without worrying about lag or unnecessary pixelization. The screen space makes the transition from using a drawing tablet to a standalone computing tablet a little bit easier.
With the iPad Air 5, you get the Pro performance without the price tag. Features include 5G compatibility, a much improved front-facing camera, and support for Magic Keyboard — making Apple’s iPad Air 5 a creative and mobile gaming powerhouse. You can also upgrade to 256GB of storage and save $70.
