Latest iPad Air returns to $400
Best Buy is currently taking $99 off Apple’s 10.5-inch iPad Air, dropping the entry-level Wi-Fi 64 GB model down to $400. That’s a match of our previous mention that sold out quickly earlier this month, and the best we’ve seen since Cyber Monday. Apple’s latest iPad Air sports a 10.5-inch Retina display, 8 MP, and 7 MP cameras, and support for Apple Pencil. All are powered by the new A12 64-bit SoC processor. iPad Air beautifully bridges the gap between affordability and a larger display.
