On this page, we're tracking the best iPad Air 5 deals using live widgets that link directly to retailers in your region showing the best prices at any given time. The latest iPad Air 5th gen was released in March 2022, so it's still relatively new, but we're already seeing some fantastic deals on this Air tablet that offers more Pro-like performance than ever.

The official iPad Air 5th-gen price from Apple now starts at $599/£669.

Which is the best iPad Air to buy?

The 2020 4th gen iPad Air is still widely popular and available, but for the best value for money, the new 5th-generation iPad Air (2022) is a worthwhile upgrade. It doesn't offer much difference in terms of design, but it has the same M1 processor as the 2021 iPad Pro models for superb performance.

With a stunning 10.9-inch Liquid Retina IPS 1640 x 2360 LCD screen with a wide colour gamut, great speakers and very reasonable battery life, the iPad Air 5 is very similar to an iPad Pro lite, but at a more affordable price – just. 

This iPad Air also supports the 2nd gen Apple Pencil, sports a 12 MP, f/1.8 dual-pixel main camera and a 12 MP f/2.4 ultrawide selfie camera and comes in five colour options. To explore the key differences between the iPad Air 5 Gen and 4 Gen, see our full iPad Air 4 vs iPad Air 5 breakdown for a detailed comparison.
