    iPad Air I bought is brand new and working as expected. Without any issues. They dis price match for me as other site was selling 50$ lessthan best buy site price. So I have got it 150$ lessthan actual apple site. It’s really good deal. I like the purchase on Best Buy and I recommend everyone to shop with Best Buy. This is my own and honest review.

    Absolutely loved this iPad ! I can add it to my att plan for $10 a month so worth it ! Plus I got approved for a credit card at Best Buy for 0% interest as long as it’s paid off within a year . The iPad graphics are amazing and it’s almost like a mini laptop . I take it everywhere with me and it’s very light not too heavy . I am in love with the quality and the sound of this iPad. Very slim design even with the case on it !

    I have been using the iPad Air, and I must say, it has truly exceeded my expectations in more ways than one. As someone who enjoys staying up-to-date with the latest news, reading ebooks, multitasking, streaming content, and taking notes, the iPad Air has become an indispensable tool in my daily life. The first thing that struck me about the iPad Air is its stunning display. The 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display provides crisp and vibrant visuals, making reading news articles and ebooks a delight. Whether I'm catching up on the morning headlines or immersing myself in a novel, the display quality of the iPad Air never fails to impress. When it comes to productivity, the iPad Air truly shines. The powerful A-series chip ensures smooth performance, allowing me to effortlessly multitask between apps without any lag. Whether I'm responding to emails, editing documents, or attending virtual meetings, the iPad Air handles it all with ease. One of the standout features of the iPad Air is its compatibility with the Apple Pencil. Taking notes has never been easier or more intuitive, thanks to the seamless integration of the Apple Pencil with the iPad Air. Whether I'm jotting down ideas, sketching diagrams, or annotating documents, the Apple Pencil provides precision and responsiveness that truly enhances the note-taking experience. Additionally, the iPad Air is perfect for streaming my favorite content. Whether I'm watching movies, TV shows, or videos online, the vibrant display and powerful speakers deliver an immersive viewing experience that rivals that of a larger screen. In conclusion, the iPad Air is a versatile and powerful device that excels in a variety of tasks, making it the perfect companion for both productivity and entertainment. If you're someone who enjoys reading news and ebooks, multitasking, streaming content, and taking notes with the Apple Pencil, I highly recommend the iPad Air as a worthy investment that will undoubtedly enhance your digital experience.

    I’m planning to start flight school and needed a tablet with GPS. The touch id is great, speed is amazing, and the color blue is pretty neat. I love Apple products and definitely will buy another in the future.

    I recently bought this iPad Air for going into college and having something to use while not home to study and work. And this iPad Air was just the right thing for me and it’s great to move around and carry around because it’s not too big or too small, it’s perfect. And I love that I can add an Apple Pencil with it along with its keyboard which is good. I love this iPad Air so much.
