This is the cheapest we've ever seen the 2020 iPad Air

With the release of the newer iPad Air 5th generation just a couple of months ago, we were expecting the price of the previous 2020 model to come down, but this Walmart+ Weekend iPad Air deal is the cheapest we've seen yet. You can get the 2020 iPad Air from just $399 (opens in new tab) for the 64GB configuration – a saving of $140.

No, it doesn't have the M1 chip (see below for that), but iPad Air 4 is still a fantastic tablet for creatives, with a 10.2-inch Liquid Retina display and powerful A14 Bionic chip. Paired with an Apple Pencil and Apple Magic Keyboard, it can even make a highly portable alternative to a laptop for digital artists and creators, with battery power lasting a good 10 hours.

The only catch with this deal is that, as part of the debut Walmart Plus Weekend, it's only available for Walmart+ members. Fortunately, there's an easy solution to that because you can sign up for a free 30-day Walmart+ (opens in new tab) trial (you can always cancel later before you start paying the monthly subscription fee). 

See our full guide to the Walmart Plus Weekend for more details about the event, or if you're more interested in the latest 5th generation iPad Air, head over to Amazon, which has £30 off the new 2022 iPad Air (opens in new tab) with 64GB of storage.
