Apple’s newest iPad lineup is pretty impressive, between the iPad Pro’s M4 chips and the 13-inch option for iPad Air. If you’re like me and you don’t need the latest version of something, snagging the previous generation while it’s still available is a great way to save money and upgrade just a little. The 5th generation iPad is on sale at Amazon, where you can save a whopping $200. You could buy a pair of AirPods with the money you saved.

This iPad may be a previous gen, but it’s certainly not wimpy. It packs Apple’s M1 chip, which remains a great option if you’re just searching the internet, playing Candy Crush, or doing some light video and photo editing. A liquid Retina display makes everything you’re looking at pop off the screen, and a 12 megapixel front and back camera make you look stunning while FaceTiming your grandma. Support for Wi-Fi 6 provides from futureproofing, which prevents a hassle for future you. We’re obsessed with this lilac shade, but it also comes in blue, pink, space gray, and starlight. We looked at other retailers, and this is the cheapest deal you’ll find on the previous-generation iPad Air.
