If you missed the boat on Black Friday deal on the ever-popular iPad Air, it's not too late! It's now Cyber Monday and deals are still going strong. We're gathering all the best offers, deals and bundles on the device from all top retailers right here. 

We're seeing discounts from a variety of retailers, especially now that there are so many newer iPads to choose from, including the new iPad mini, iPad Pro with M1 and new iPad (9th gen). The model we're discussing here, the iPad Air 4 (2020), is the newest iPad Air model released by Apple.

The iPad Air 4 went on sale 23 October, 2020. Despite a design shift to look similar to the latest Pros, the slate was the very first Apple device to come with the A14 Bionic chip, as well as moving Touch ID to the power button.

The 10.9in Air is an excellent halfway house between the entry-level iPad and high-end iPad Pro – and ideal for those who need some extra power, but don't want to spend hundreds of pounds on a device that may not replace their laptop. 

We're also looking at the best iPad deals across every model if you want to see other top offers. We're also tracking the best Cyber Monday Apple deals across all retailers

Best iPad Air 4 Cyber Monday deals

Right now, the biggest discount we can see on the iPad Air 4th gen is £40 off from Currys.

Alternatively, you can save £170 on the 256GB option with cellular connectivity. The only catch is it's currently listed as "temporarily out of stock". Amazon will let you know when they expect to see stock return, so if you're not in a rush it's a great way to "pre-order" the Air 4 at the reduced price for when stock eventually does return. You can always cancel your order and get a refund if you change your mind.

Apple Black Friday/Cyber Monday event

Don't forget that Apple's annual four-day Black Friday/Cyber Monday event is now live and will run until 29 November (Cyber Monday). Apple is offering gift cards worth up to £160/$200 on a second purchase when you buy specific Apple devices. Here's everything you need to know about the event.

Apple Educational discount - iPad Air (4th gen) offer

Apple offers students and staff in higher education discounts on the iPad Air in its Education Store.

Apple isn't the only retailer that offers student discounts, however. KRCS also offers up to 10% off, as does MusicMagpie (up to £150 off), if you're interested in saving on the iPad Air 4 by buying refurbished.

When was the 2020 iPad Air released?

The 2020 iPad Air was announced at Apple's 15 September 'Time Flies' event. Pre-orders were live from 16 October, with the device officially available from 23 October. 

This followed the same schedule as the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, although we had to wait until November for the Mini and Pro Max. 

What features does the 2020 iPad Air have?

The new iPad Air is a significant upgrade over its predecessor, now sporting a design similar to that seen on the 2018 iPad Pro. A new 10.9in screen size has much smaller bezels, with Touch ID now built into the power button instead of below the screen. However, there's no Face ID support.

Don't forget to pick up a case for the Air 4 – see the best ones here.

Impressively, the Air is the very first device to sport Apple's new A14 Bionic chip, with a serious boost in performance expected over last year's A12. The single rear camera has also been upgraded to a 12Mp, f/1.8 sensor. 

Elsewhere, the iPad Air also follows the Pro in shifting to USB-C, while there are new green and blue colour options to add to the existing Silver, Space Grey and Rose Gold.
