    I assume it's the latest generation. It says 2013 on the box.

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), and Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what a reasonable price may be. Don't check just once source, but get an average from all sites for a more accurate idea. Some sites may be higher/lower than is realistic. Then adjust the price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc. If the model is recent enough, you can also check the Apple refurbished store to see what similar models are selling for.

    The same applies, whether it's sealed or not. You could also post it in the Marketplace forum.

    A refurb model is $340. I doubt you are going to get much more than that. Be happy with anything over $300.

    iPad Air was released in 2013. The (current) iPad Air 2 was released in 2014. It looks like a older model.

    Does it have touch ID? The newest ones have touch ID.

    Craigslist and eBay are the most popular venues. You can also try the MacRumors Marketplace.

    Never heard of it. The ones I mentioned are the most popular. I'm sure there are thousands of other, more obscure, venues.
