As hardware and performance continue to improve, the lines between laptop and tablet are starting to blur. Particularly on models like the latest, which comes equipped with Apple's M1 processor, the same series found in its MacBooks. This sleek, versatile tablet hit shelves last month, and we're already starting to see some discounts pop up. Right now, you can save up to $49 on the , though only on the purple or starlight (aka white) color variants. Or $40 on the , with prices starting at just $559. If you prefer a little extra storage, the space gray is also available for $70 less than the price from Apple directly, and the purple and pink variants are $24 off.
The latest generation iPad Air is packed full of cutting-edge hardware and specs that have it "mostly caught back up" to the pricier iPad Pro, according to.

And the stunning 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with True Tone and P3 Wide Color make it a great choice for creators and artists.

On a single charge, it has a battery life of up to 10 hours, and features a USB-C charger, as opposed to the Lightning cable found on other models.
