The latest iPad Air has an M1 chip and Center Stage camera, but the 2020 model is still an excellent tablet, especially if you find one at a discount. And we’ve never seen a better one than this: Costco sells the 2020 iPad Air for $400 (64GB) and $520 (256GB), saving $199 and $229, respectively. You don’t have to be a Costco member to take advantage of this sale.
The iPad Air 2020 shares the same design as the latest model, with a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, a power button with Touch ID, and sleek, unified bezels. The main differences between the two models are the processor (A14 vs M1), memory (4GB vs 8GB) and front camera (12MP Ultra Wide vs 7MP Wide). Those are all nice upgrades, but the savings here are even nicer.
We loved the 2020 model in our review, calling it “a better buy than the iPad Pro for most people,” and our opinion hasn’t really changed, especially at this price. So grab one before they’re gone forever.
