Amazing iPad Air deals are here right now thanks to Walmart trying to fend off Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day 2019 Walmart iPad Air deals

The incoming Amazon Prime Day sales are playing havoc with the tech market right now, with major rivals like Walmart launching some astonishing preemptive deal strikes of their very own to stay competitive. And that is simply amazing news for consumers, as prices are being driven through the floor.

A great example of this can be seen in the amazing price the latest and greatest 2019 iPad Air is currently been offered for both at Amazon and at Walmart, with the superb slate now available at its lowest ever price at both retailers, who are price matching each other in terms of discount.

Both iPad Air deals can be checked out in full below:

Apple iPad Air 10.5-inch Wi-Fi 64GB | $499.99 | $469.00 at Walmart

Apple iPad Air 10.5-inch Wi-Fi 64GB | $499.99 | $469.00 at Walmart
Walmart continues to compete with Amazon in the run up to Amazon Prime Day 2019 by price matching the retailer in terms of discount on the 2019 Apple iPad Air 10.5-inch tablet. The super slate is reduced by $30 down from $499 to only $469, which is the lowest ever price we've seen on the tablet. A12 Bionic chip, Touch ID Fingerprint Sensor with Apple Pay, and a True Tone and Wide Color 10.5-inch Retina Display make for an excellent combo. You also get free delivery, too.

Apple's newest iPad Air slate is available at Amazon right now for the exact same low price as Walmart, with the tablet discounted by $30 down from $499 to just $469. That price bags you a sleek powerhouse of a system loaded with Apple's rapid A12 Bionic chip, a crisp and clear 10.5-inch Retina Display, and strong stereo speaker system, too, among other advanced features.

In our Apple iPad Air 2019 review, we said that it was the "top tablet for 90% of people" before bestowing a maximum score 5-star score on it. "The iPad Air is a fantastic tablet," we noted. "The screen and power make it feel like an iPad Pro, but for a seriously good price. The perfect do-anything device for most people."

Naturally, the 2019 Apple iPad Air then proceeded to lodge itself firmly at the top of our prestigious best tablets guide, with only Apple's iPad Pro 12.9 pipping it to the top spot - but then again, that tablet costs over twice that of the new Air so that is understandable. As such, for anyone who is currently in the market for a new tablet, then this is our top recommendation and basically a mandatory purchase. Nothing else, Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 included, comes close.

A simply superb, best on the market for almost everyone tablet, now available at an incredibly low price point at not just one great retailer, but two.
