There was one notable exception from Apple’s fall new product event back in early September: the iPad Air. Apple’s popular tablet did not get the bump to the next generation, so the Air 2 remains as top-of-the-line 9.7-inch device. Staples is currently discounting many of these models in different configurations by $100. This deal is a nice value on a product that will likely remain in Apple’s line-up for another year.
The Apple iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi 16GB configuration is available in all three colors for $399 (Reg. $499). This deal is also
available at Target. You can bump up to 64GB for $499 (Reg. $599) – which is the best value in our opinion – or go to 128GB for $599 (Reg. $699). Additionally, Staples has the 64GB model with Wi-Fi + Cellular configuration for $629 (Reg. $729). Shipping is free on all of these deals or you can elect for in-store pickup if you’d prefer to get your hands on it today.
This iOS device has a 9.7-inch Retina multi-touch display with a 2048×1536 resolution, A8X chip with a M8 motion coprocessor, Touch ID and a built-in 8MP iSight camera with 1080p HD capabilities.
Apple did elect to upgrade the iPad mini this month and retailers are now dropping the price on the previous generation mini 3. Target is currently offering the Wi-Fi 16GB model in all three colors for $299 (Orig. $399) and the 64GB model for $399 (Orig. $499). Also available in 16GB Space Gray at Staples. Free shipping is available on all of these deals. The smaller iPad has a 7.9-inch Retina display with 2048×1536 resolution, Apple’s A7 64-bit chip with M7 motion coprocessor, a 5MP iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording and Touch ID.
