Apple unveiled the fourth-generation iPad Air in mid-September, and the tablet is set to start shipping on October 23. Pre-orders are still ongoing, and if you submit yours through Amazon, you will be able to enjoy a $40 discount to the latest iPad Air’s price of $599, bringing it down to $559 for a great deal on a device that hasn’t even rolled out yet.

The all-new iPad Air with 64GB storage features an edge-to-edge 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, made possible by moving the Touch ID sensor from the eliminated Home button to the tablet’s top button. The tablet is powered by the A14 Bionic, making it the first device with Apple’s latest chip, and follows the latest iPad Pro in ditching the Lightning port in favor of USB-C. It is also compatible with the Magic Keyboard and the second-generation Apple Pencil, for accessories that can further expand the iPad Air’s usefulness.

Apple’s latest operating system for its tablets, iPadOS 14, amps up the iPad Air experience by further integrating the Apple Pencil into the tablet’s note-taking capabilities, as well as adding the Scribble feature for text fields to recognize handwriting. The new version of iPadOS also introduces Universal Search to quickly find anything on the iPad Air or online, redesigned widgets to access information with a glance, and new looks for native apps such as FaceTime and Siri.

Apple has also designed the iPad Air to be environmentally friendly. The tablet is built with a 100% recycled aluminum enclosure, 100% recycled tin for the solder on its main logic board, and 100% recycled rare earth elements for its speakers. Even the tablet’s packaging is green, as it is made out of wood fiber that is recycled or sourced from responsibly managed forests.


The fourth-generation iPad Air hasn’t started shipping yet, but it has the potential to become one of the most popular models in Apple’s iPad lineup due to the combination of a powerful processor, and the wonders of iPadOS 14. If you pre-order through Amazon, you’ll shave $40 off of the tablet’s price, bringing it down to $559 from $599. It’s unclear if the offer will stay once the new iPad Air starts shipping tomorrow, so if you want to avail the discount, you should click on that Buy Now button before the day ends.

The most popular iPad on Amazon (and one of our favorites) is $80 off
The iPad 10.2 on a table.

Apple tablets are some of the most popular and hold the market share in the U.S., and for very good reason. Probably one of the most popular, if not the most popular, tablets is the iPad 9th-generation, and that's very obvious given how many units it's sold on Amazon alone, which is over 10,000 in the last month alone. Not only that, but it's had an incredible 57,000+ reviews with an average rating of 4.8, which is actually very impressive, given how critical reviews tend to skew. If you want to grab one, you're in luck because Amazon has a great deal that brings them down to $249 from $329. That's a very respectable $80 discount, especially on a product that's essentially flying off the shelves.

Why you should buy the Apple iPad
There are a lot of great things to say about the 9th-generation Apple iPad, and beyond just the excellent price it's going for, it has a large 10.2-inch screen running the Retina display we all know and love, with vivid color reproduction and image fidelity. Under the hood, you'll find Apple's A13 Biochip, which is a couple of generations old at this point, but still more than powerful enough for most tasks that you'd throw at it on an average day. As for storage, it is admittedly on the lower side at 64GBs, but the 256GB model also has a deal on it, bringing it
