Remember, this deal is for Walmart Plus members only. (You must have a paying account to participate). This is one of the best iPad deals we've seen in a while, so hurry and snap one up while you can.

Despite being a generation old, the 2020 iPad Air sports a large 10.9-inch display, speedy A14 Bionic CPU, and support for USB-C charging. Plus, with Magic Keyboard support, it's as close to a laptop replacement as you can get. It's now at its lowest price ever and cheaper than the $469 price low we saw from Amazon earlier in the year. 

While it can't beat the new M1 chip in the iPad Air 5, the iPad Air 4 still performs extremely well. It has a 10.2-inch Liquid Retina display, 64GB of storage capacity (or 256GB if you opt for a pricier option) and powerful A14 Bionic chip. This is impressive considering the tablet weighs just one pound.

The iPad Air 4 could even be an easy replacement for a laptop in your life. If you add the Apple Pencil and the Apple Magic Keyboard, the tablet becomes an amazing productivity device. You'll also get a stellar 10 hours of battery life, which is enough to get you through your day without needing to grab a charger.

While it's a shame this tablet doesn't have Face ID or a headphone jack, the lack of these features isn't a deal breaker. The inclusion of a USB-C port and an excellent webcam are more than enough to make up for these omissions.
