Apple's iPad Air 5 has been out in the market early this year, but the powerful tablet already sees a major and rare discount. Buying the Wi-Fi model with 256 GB storage can save you up to $70 during the Amazon Prime Day starting this October 11. It's rare for Apple to generously offer great deals like this, so now's the time to act if you've craved for an iPad.

TL;DR

  • Amazon is slashing the iPad Air 5 prices starting today.
  • Both 64 GB and 256 GB Wi-Fi variants of iPad Air 5 get rare discounts.
  • Save up to $70 when you buy the iPad Air during the two-day Prime Day event.

The two-day exclusive Prime deals will incredibly reduce the price of the 2022 iPad Air tablets in all colors. Specifically, the 64 GB Wi-Fi variant now retails for $559, which is a $40 savings from its original price. On the other hand, the 256 GB storage has a far better deal as it is down to $679 from the $749 launch price.

Currently, you can't find similar iPad Air 5 deals offered outside Amazon, even from Apple. The event will see the discount running in several countries including the US until October 12th.

Is the iPad Air 5 offer from Amazon worth it?

The iPad Air 5 or 2022 model is the first non-pro tablet from Apple that is equipped with the powerful M1 series chipset. This puts the iPad Air 5 on par with the more expensive 12.9- and 11-inch iPad Pro. It has an impressive battery life and USB-C port for faster data transfer to boot. Likewise, support for Magic keyboard and Apple's Pencil 2 is a big plus given the low price.

Besides the premium and sleek build, the iPad Air 5 comes with a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display that matches the resolutions of both pro iPad models. There is also a snappy TouchID positioned at the top while the front and rear house a 12MP camera capable of 4K video recording.

The upcoming iPadOS 16 software update should also benefit the iPad Air 5. Apple plans to add MacBook-like multitasking experience to select iPad tablets. The update will also bring a slew of new features such as a dedicated Weather app and Freeform collaboration tool.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
