Now is a great time to buy a 2022 Apple M1-equipped iPad Air, as they’re back down to their all-time low prices. The 64GB WiFi model is now on sale for just $500, or $99 (17 percent) off, while the 256GB model is available for $650, also $99 off the normal price of $749.

The M1 chip gives the 2022 iPad Air a substantial performance boost over the previous model, making it a solid choice for content creation, gaming, and other demanding applications. Performance is also increased thanks to 10Gbps USB-C ports that have double the bandwidth of the latest model. At the same time, battery life remains unchanged at an excellent 10 hours. All of those things make the iPad Air 2022 future-proof and helped it earn a top-notch 90 score in our Engadget review.
He has more than speed going for him. You get a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina LCD with Apple’s True Tone feature to optimize the display’s color temperature based on ambient light, for starters. It also comes with an upgraded 12-megapixel ultra-wide front-facing camera and supports the same accessories as the last model (keyboard skins, Magic Keyboard, and Apple Pencil). The main drawback is the lack of Face ID.
The 64GB iPad Air hits that $500 price (in all colors except blue) thanks to a 7 percent discount and a $59 checkout coupon (applied when you click to pay). Meanwhile, the 256GB model is marked down to $650 thanks to different combinations of payment coupons and discounts.
