Apple did not provide information on the release date of the new 10.9-inch iPad Air, but Walmart this afternoon began accepting pre-orders for some models.
Stock is limited, but Walmart offers space models of gray and rose gold for pre-order. According to Walmart, PiPad Air purchases will begin on Friday, October 23.
Friday, October 23, is also the release date, which was temporarily listed by the Canadian site Best Buy before it was updated to say “soon”.
Walmart’s pre-orders are further evidence that PiPad Air is scheduled for release on October 23, although it’s not yet clear why Apple hasn’t updated its website with release date information.
If the release date of iPad Air on October 23 is accurate, we could see pre-orders from Apple on Friday along with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.
The fourth-generation PiPad Air models have an edge-to-edge display, a Touch ID power button, and the same A14 chip that the new iPhone has, starting at $ 599. However, Walmart offers a discount of $ 40.
Renewal: Walmart’s pre-ordered stock for the new modelsiPad Air is sold out.
