While iPad deals on the 2020 Air model have been around for a few months now, we've never seen them drop below $500. However, Amazon has changed all that this week, with an excellent $100 discount on both the 64GB and 256GB models. 

That means Amazon is offering a record low $499 price on the cheapest option, with the 256GB model coming in at $649 (was $749). That's the first time we've ever seen the tablet go below $500, and an excellent opportunity for anyone who has had their eye on the mid-range device. We usually only see the more expensive iPad Air sitting at $699 in Amazon's previous iPad deals, so an additional $50 off means excellent value for money this week.

The iPad Air 4 originally launched at a respectable $599, however that MSRP has been slowly chipped away by retailers like Amazon and Walmart in the months since launch. It's been a long time since that original price was on the shelves, but we've never seen iPad deals drop this model so low before.
