Amazon is offering Apple's recently-announced 10.5-inch iPad Air from just $449.99 right now. That price applies to the 64GB model in all three available colors and saves you $49 off the retail price. You can also save on cellular-enabled models with the same discount on the 64GB cellular device in silver or space gray — the lowest they've ever gone. If you want to up the capacity to 256GB, you can save up to $50 on 256GB models, too.

Announced in March, the newest iPad Air's screen size jumps up to 10.5 inches with this update. It also gains the A12 Bionic system-on-a-chip for a 70% boost in performance and twice the graphics capability of its 9.7-inch predecessor. The display also supports Apple's True Tone technology for color accuracy in all ambient light settings. Like the previous-gen 10.5-inch iPad Pro, the new iPad Air makes use of the Smart Connector on the edge of the device to support the Smart Keyboard and also maintains compatibility with the first-gen Apple Pencil.

It's pretty rare for such a new Apple product to receive a direct discount like this and as the discounts are matching a limited-time Best Buy sale, we expect they won't hang around for long at Amazon either.
