Despite launching mere days ago, Amazon is already dropping the price on Apple's new iPad Air 5th Generation, with units in stock and ready to ship.

The new price drops at Amazon knock $30 off the 64GB, Wi-Fi models, putting the discounted $569.99 price within $70 of the best closeout iPad Air 4 price we've seen on the last-gen model at $499.99.

At press time, all five colors are on sale for $569.99 at Amazon, including the blue shade that we're particularly fond of. Looking for 256GB of storage or 5G capability? You can compare prices on every configuration across popular Apple resellers in our iPad Air 5 Price Guide.

The iPad sale comes on the heels of last week's MacBook Pro markdowns that are still in effect this Monday, driving prices on the 14-inch MacBook Pro down to as low as $1,749 and 13-inch models down to $1,149.99. You can read more about the deals here.
