Now that Apple's slate of 2022 products are up for preorder, the deals are starting to roll in. This time, you can save on the newly-released 10.9-inch iPad Air 5 before it even makes its way to retail shelves.
Kicking off the deals, Walmart is leading the way with a
$40 discount (sold out) on the 64GB Wi-Fi models and a $70 markdown (sold out) on the 256GB Wi-Fi models. These epic sale prices deliver the best iPad Air deals we've seen on the devices.
You can also save on two Wi-Fi + Cellular configurations of the new iPad Air 5 in Space Gray at B&H Photo. Both the 64GB and 256GB options are $20 off MSRP, making them $729 and $879 respectively. Each model is currently attached to an estimated March 18 ship date.Shop the B&H deals
If you want to snag one of these deals, it would be prudent to act quickly, as these discounts may be a pricing error and it's unknown how long they will last.
The iPad Air 5 made its debut on stage during Apple's most recent "Peek Performance" event on March 8 (here's what we thought about the keynote). It retains a similar form factor to its predecessor, but it's been beefed up considerably with Apple's M1 chip. Its new 8-core CPU offers a 60 percent boost to performance, and its 8-core GPU bolsters its graphical performance to make it twice as fast as the iPad Air 4.
The new iPad Air 5 also features a new Ultra Wide 12-megapixel camera with Center Stage, a feature that automatically pans to ensure users are in view while moving around. It retains the same 12-megapixel rear camera as the previous iPad as well. While B&H Photo's deals focus only on the Space Gray models, the iPad Air 5 comes in Pink, Purple, Blue, and Starlight options as well.
As a reminder when shopping B&H, you may eligible to save even more. The retailer's Payboo Credit Card allows for a unique money-saving application with its "Save the Tax" instant savings benefit, which is available in certain states, along with special financing on qualifying purchases made with the card.
For those who opt for the "Save the Tax" benefit, that means B&H will apply an instant reward to customers' Payboo cards equal to the sales tax they would have paid. It's an instant reward, and buyers can then see it applied straight to their order. This means you're saving a bit more on your purchase, so long as you live in a state where these benefits are valid.
