The new iPad Air, now in its fifth generation, was only just released into the wild on Friday, and you can already grab a discount on the retail price. Amazon's reduced the starting price for this stunning new tablet by $29.01 from $599 to $569.99. OK, so it's only a saving of 5%, but it's almost impossible to expect more on an Apple tablet that's only just been released. And the deal is available on all but one of the five colours on the 64GB WiFi configuration of the new tablet – though you'll probably need to be quick to be guarantee the colour you want.

The 5th generation iPad Air has specs that give even last year's iPad Pros a run for their money, packing the same powerful M1 chip into a super portable device with a stunning 3.8 million pixel 10.9-inch Liquid Retina screen, and Apple Pencil 2 support. The 4th generation iPad Air was previously one of our favourite tablets for the balance between performance and price, and this has just topped it.

Save $29.01: Amazon's often the first to offer small savings on Apple products, and it was lightning fast with the new 5th generation iPad Air, already offering $29.01 off just a day after the tablet's release. Unfortunately, this saving is in the US only, on the 64GB WiFi configuration.
