Best Apple iPad deals: iPad Air hits lowest price ever with $99 discount

And you can save more on the 256GB iPad Air.

Unlike Apple's new iPad Pros, which are the first non-Macs to receive Apple's M1 chip, the iPad Air has yet to received an M1 jolt. If you aren't a creative type who requires the most power from your iPad, however, the iPad Air should have enough muscle and boasts a roomy, 10.9-inch display framed by thin bezels and a host of features including USB-C and support for the Magic Keyboard and Pencil 2. And right now, the baseline model with 64GB of storage at its lowest price ever on Amazon with a $99 discount. Need more storage space? The 256GB model is $110 off.

You can also save $50 on the 11-inch iPad Pro, and the eighth-gen iPad is only $299 at Amazon and Walmart.

Apple's 10.9-inch iPad Air with 64GB of storage in either space gray or green is $99 off at Amazon, which drops it to its lowest price ever. For most users, a 64GB SSD is skimpy and will fill up fast. Thankfully, you can save $110 on the 256GB model in rose gold. Want a different color? The other color options for the 256GB iPad Air are discounted by $99.

The eighth-gen iPad features a 10.2-inch screen and is powered by the A12 chip. With a list price of $329, the 32GB model is the most affordable iPad and is currently selling at a $30 discount at Amazon and Walmart.

We'll be honest: This one is only for those willing to pay a premium for the smaller screen. You're basically paying more to get the same basic specs as the 10.2-inch iPad, but with a more portable 7.9-inch size (albeit with 64GB of storage and a spiffier screen). The 64GB model is selling at a $30 discount and the 256GB model is $59 off.
