The company opened up preorders for all five of the new colors in both 64GB and 256GB configurations. At the time of publishing this article, the Sky Blue, Silver, and Green colors are already completely sold out. The only colors that remain are Space Gray and Rose Gold, with the Rose Gold only available in 64GB. Notably, Walmart seems to be running a sale on the new tablet, taking $40 off.

You can check the iPad Air 4 page on Walmart's website to see if you can grab one. If not, it seems all too likely that Apple is planning to open up its own preorders tomorrow morning along with the new iPhone.
