Amazon today has introduced a new record low price on the 256GB Wi-Fi iPad Air in Rose Gold, priced at $659.99, down from $749.00. This version of the iPad Air has been on sale for around $699.99 the past few weeks, making Amazon's deal today the new lowest price we've ever tracked.

At the time of writing, only Rose Gold is available at this $89 off discount price. Amazon sometimes adds more colors to sales like this as they go on, so there is a chance we'll see more discounts on the iPad Air in the coming days and weeks.



For the 64GB model, we're tracking the same sale that we've seen on Amazon for the past few months. You can get the 64GB Wi-Fi iPad Air in multiple colors for $549.00, down from $599.00. Both iPad Air models are shipped and sold by Amazon, and are in stock.

They have to. The 11 inch 2021 iPad Pro M1 128gb (still enough memory for most people, but better screen with better contrast and pro-motion, face ID, lidar, cameras, M1 speed and more) is priced at $799 but has already been seen on Amazon for $749. Considering they have held the 2020 iPad Air 256gb on sale for a long time at $699 the $50 dollar difference to the sale price of the Pro was too small... most would go for the Pro at only $50 more.

The iPad Air is a great machine but it should be priced nearly $100 less across the board standard to separate it from the Pro.

This or 2018 refurb iPad Pro for light video and photo editing?

FWIW, the screen of an iPad Pro is much better - deeper blacks and better contrast & ProMotion. The only thing that is better on Air 4 is the TouchID, if this is useful for you.

I know it is silly.
But I cannot afford both an iphone and an ipad.
So why can´t I call from an standalone ipad ?
Can Apple please give me a good reason ?

Until it comes down to $612, this is still more expensive than what I paid for my new one last month. 😛
At least, this is heading to the right direction.

Correction, until it comes down to $565...(Got mine for $599, legally tax free)

You’ll need an iPad with LTE and an account with your carrier for calls.
I would also recommend having a headset - doubt you’d want speaker calls whenever youre in public and have to always look at the a
ipad to accept. Use AirPods and enable announce calls so you know who’s calling.
Lastly Apple doesn’t have to give you a good reason you need to understand the iPad originally was not designed to be a phone it’s a tablet so some features will be missing and your use case will need to be adjusted in how you use it for calls.

Thanks for good help. You spent time to give me a good answer.

I would need a incoming and outgoing actual phone number.

I know about the LTE. But I need the full service of a national normal phone number and service.
