Starting with the 64GB Wi-Fi M1 iPad Air, Best Buy has this model for $399.99, down from $599.99. This is an all-time low price on this model of the 2022 iPad Air, and it's available in every color. You'll also find the 256GB Wi-Fi iPad Air on sale, as well as both cellular devices, one of which is only available on Amazon.




Apple introduced new M2 iPad Air models last month, which is why we're seeing steep discounts on the previous generation models more often. You can still save a bit of money on the 2024 models if you're interested in owning the latest version.

Secondly, Amazon has the 64GB Wi-Fi iPad mini 6 for $399.99, down from $499.99. This one is a second-best price on the iPad mini, and it's available in every color. You'll find every iPad mini 6 model on sale right now, with the exception of the 256GB cellular model.

FYI, look for open-box. Oftentimes you get a far better deal. I was able to score a practically brand new 128 GB iPad Pro 11" M2 at Best Buy without an Apple box for just $476. Love it so far. Way better than the M1 iPad Air too.
Face ID spoils me. Touch ID feels like such a regression when using the Air.

I've reached a point where I don't buy the 64GB models anymore, but for a specific type of kiosk/enterprise use case, fine. At 128GB I'm much more comfortable.

At this point, I'll just spend the extra to get the latest Air. But I'm not sure that M1 would become instantly obsolete.

The M1/2 may be a good deal for some as they will still be able to run the newest features on the upcoming iOS 18/iPadOS release, but everyone should stay away from the mini because the chip is basically obsolete and will never support the newest features going forward, especially as there is a new model rumored for later this year.
Apple devices have hit an inflection point where devices with older CPUs than A17 Pro and M1 becoming instantly obsolete. Expect these devices to hit lower resale values on par with Intel Macs.
