Amazon this week is offering Apple's newest 64GB iPad Air for $559.00, down from $599.00 in green and sky blue. This $40 off sale is a match for the previous low price that we saw for this tablet earlier in 2020.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with Amazon. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Fortunately, shipping times are also improving in comparison to similar sales earlier in December. As of writing, shipping estimates suggest stock will return between January 13 to 17, compared to early February estimates from a week or so ago.

You can place your order today to lock in this lowest-ever price. The 2020 iPad Air features a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with True Tone, the A14 Bionic chip, Touch ID, 12MP back camera and 7MP front camera, and a slim design similar to the iPad Pro.

I got the best deal on a iPad Mini 4 in mid October.

Often now, the prices can be higher during during special deal days (Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc) than the best prices during the year.

Solid I wanted one of these back when they first were announced but it was impossible to find them at my local Best Buy in the color I wanted. Maybe I'll check this out.

The best deal is getting these from someone who got it as a student. I paid $400 for a new mini 5 256gb with Smart Cover and 3 year AppleCare cash from a medical student. Found out if you buy these from university, the Apple care is 3 years instead of 2.

Is it just me, or have iPads (in general, all models) had larger discounts this entire year compared to years before?...Maybe I'm just more cognizant of it this year. ?‍♂️

Coming from a 2016 iPad Pro 9.7 inch, finally getting the new iPad Air last week was a breath of fresh air. My iPad Pro was by no means slow, still very very capable of handling everything, but man!- the new iPad Air zips.

The long press Touch ID is faster, actually.

Absolutely, in fact you don't even need to hard press down on the Power button, but just rest your finger and your instantly at your Home Page, no swipe up required! But seriously though, just love my Ipad Air 4, its practically the best all round Ipad you can get right now in my opinion.
