How to buy an iPad Air 2 with the best price ever

When Apple first announced the iPad Air in January, it promised a “best-ever price” for a 12.9-inch tablet, but that wasn’t the case.

That honor went to the iPhone 7 Plus, and it went up to $499 for the same price as the iPad Pro, a device that’s still available for pre-order right now.

So how much did the iPhone SE and iPhone 7 cost?

$599, which is still a huge premium for the iPad, but still a great deal for a device you can actually buy right now for less than $400.
