The base model Apple iPad Air is available on Amazon for just $539 (as of this posting). This is the same model I have, and I love the new design, USB C charging and amazing screen. The Air includes 64 gigabytes of storage.
The iPad Air features an all new design with a stunning 10.9 inch Liquid Retina display. The Touch ID fingerprint sensor works quickly and reliably. It supports the Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard.
The iPad Air is available in Sky Blue, Green, Rose Gold, Silver, and Space Gray. I have the Sky Blue to match my iPhone 13 Pro.
The iPad Air is a lot of tablet for $599, well worth it. Of course, if you can get it a bit cheaper, even better!
