Apple’s all-new 2020 iPad Air only hit the market a few weeks ago but we’ve already seen a couple of very limited-time price drops on it. One such deal has returned to select 64GB models at Amazon where prices are up to $31 off. You can also save as much as $40 on some iPad Air models at Walmart. As far as Apple Black Friday deals go, these are probably some of the best we’ll see. These sales never last long, so it’s worth snagging one at a discount while you can.
There’s no risk that you’ll confuse the previous-gen iPad Air with the 2020 model even at a glance. The new model features a dramatically redesigned chassis, taking its design cues from the current iPad Pro, with flat edges and an edge-to-edge display with rounded corners. Thanks to the redesign, the display size has also been upped from 10.5 inches to 10.9 inches.
In adopting the iPad Pro design language, the iPad Air has also ditched the home button that has been present on Air models since 2013. Instead of Face ID in the iPad Pro, the 2020 iPad Air features a Touch ID fingerprint sensor built into the sleep/wake button. There’s support for the second-gen Apple Pencil, too.
The early iPad Air reviews and unboxings praised the new design and high-end features that have made their way to the Air line, as well as the balance of features and affordable price (compared to the iPad Pro).
Since the new iPad Air was only recently announced, you can’t walk into a store just yet to pick one up. Today’s discount is one the best iPad Air 2020 deal we’ve seen so far, though there’s no telling how long the deal will stick around.
