SAVE $99.01: The 2022 iPad Air is back down to its holiday season record-low pricing. Grab it in your choice of colorway at Best Buy or in a more limited selection at Amazon as of Jan. 30. At just $499.99, you’ll save 17% off its $599 list price.
We’re about a month and change past the holiday season, so any regrets you have about not grabbing fancy new tech at discounted holiday prices are settling in now.
Just because we’re heading into February in two days doesn’t mean you have to wait until November for record-low pricing again. In fact, as of Jan. 30, the 2022 iPad Air (WiFi, 64GB) has returned to the $500 all-time low price we saw it at about a month back, and in every single colorway if you’re shopping at Best Buy. Amazon also has the tablet discounted, but only in purple, blue, and starlight.
Color preferences aside, the 2022 Air is one of the most versatile tablets Apple has out on the market. Mashable senior editor Stan Schroeder calls this iPad “the sweet spot of Apple’s tablets” in his review, citing how its features-to-cost ratio makes it great “for both casual users and professionals.”
Those features include a high-powered M1 chip (the same one that was formerly only in iPad Pros), 8GB of RAM, and a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display. In other words, it’s a high-powered tablet that’ll have no trouble running a game or editing software, and can likely handle most multitasking you throw at it. For comparison, the 2022 iPad, which launched in late 2022 as compared to the Air’s early 2022, comes with an A15 chip, and is only $50 less than the Air.
The biggest downside is the 64GB starting storage, but at nearly $100 off, it’s easier to swing. Strictly casual users might want to think before they buy, but for people who want a little extra power and a lot of bang for their buck, this deal on the iPad Air is hard to beat.
