You can also get the 256GB Wi-Fi M1 iPad Air on sale for $599.00, down from $749.00. Both of these deals are new all-time low prices on the 2022 tablet, and right now only Amazon has the discounts.


Additionally, both cellular models are on sale right now on Amazon. The 64GB cellular model has hit $599.00, down from $749.00, while the 256GB cellular model is available for $749.00, down from $899.00. Stock on the cellular models is far more sparse compared to the Wi-Fi tablets, so be sure to order soon if you're interested.

Our buyer's guide has a more detailed breakdown of these two iPad Air models and should help make any buying decision a bit easier.

64GB is unlikely usable for most folks unless you don't save anything locally and plan to always have a connection for data saved in the cloud, meaning most will spring for the 256GB version. At only $100 more, you can get the M2 Air with 256GB storage and all the refresh improvements. The 256GB M1 should receive at least the same $200 price cut as the 64GB M1.

Great deal, many people use this for streaming media consumption where 64GB is perfect. The M1/8GB is a major selling point and will last for years. Much better choice compared to A14/4GB iPad 10.

Great deal but 64gb is such a struggle sometimes depending on how iCloud is feeling. I've had to wipe and reset my iPad mini twice now because it decided it wanted to use like 40-50gb to store messages and photos when I never use either on the device. Then it downloaded an update and was so full it couldn't install it. Nothing I did would offload anything to the cloud either.

I'd be happy with 64gb in theory as I plan to store nothing on an iPad....but the way things work in reality I don't think I'll ever purchase a 64gb device again

Face ID and ProMotion are enough to seriously consider it over an Air, at least for me, and definitely over the base iPad for the 64GB one.

This is the iPad to buy if want an iPad Air. The M2 really isn’t much of an upgrade. Everything else is the same unless you need PencilPro support.
