The 2022 iPad Air is even more tempting at a $499.99 deal price
In our review of the Apple iPad Air (2022), we referred to it as the best sub-flagship tablet you can buy. I recently gave it a try, and I couldn’t agree more. You’re getting a lot of bang for your buck at the $600 retail price, but given the return to its all-time low price of $499.99 in this deal, it’s tough not to be tempted.
There have been a few opportunities to pick up the stunning Apple tablet at this price in the past 12 months, but they are fleeting. Apple isn’t famed for offering big discounts on its tech as it knows the loyal fanbase will often pay what is asked of them, so this near-$100 markdown is unlikely to be beaten anytime soon.
The iPad Air (2022) has made a name for itself by offering a beautiful blend of performance and value. Packing the M1 processor that was previously seen in Apple’s highest-end devices, it brings laptop-tier performance to a lightweight tablet and ensures that it is future-proofed for years to come. Upgrades over its predecessor include 5G support, doubling the RAM to 8GB, and an improved front-facing camera. The camera introduces the Center Stage feature, which dynamically adjusts the frame during video calls to keep the user-centered. Despite its power, the iPad Air maintains a battery life of around 10 hours and now supports faster charging. It’s a package with which it is difficult to pick major faults.
