Apple’s all-new addition to its iPadOS lineup is officially on sale today ahead going up for pre-order last week. If you haven’t already locked in your order or had one show up at your door, Amazon is rolling out a launch day discount. Taking $30 off the usual $599 price tag, you can bring home the iPad Air 5 Wi-Fi 64GB in Starlight for $569 shipped. You can also save $29 on 256GB models. This is marking the second-best price in any case and a rare chance to save.
Apple’s new iPad Air 5 arrives in the same 10.9-inch form-factor as we saw last time around, with some notable internal improvements to justify the refresh. Now powered by Apple Silicon for the first time, there’s an M1 chip with Neural Engine at the center of the experience. Its 12MP Ultra Wide front camera comes backed by Center Stage support, and the 10.9-inch display rocks True Tone, P3 wide color support, and an antireflective coating. Staples from last time like Touch ID in the power button and Apple Pencil integration are onboard, as well. Learn more about iPad Air 5 over in our coverage at 9to5Mac.
