The 1st-generation iPad Air became available in November 2013 from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon in the United States.[2] In Canada, the prices and plans were more expensive at carriers Bell, Rogers, Telus, and others.[3]


The thinner iPad Air 2, was announced on October 16, 2014 and was released on October 22.[4] However, the original iPad Air continued to be sold at discount until March 21, 2016.

Aftermarket support[]

Aftermarket and refurbished units continue to be available through 3rd-party sources. However, user reviews of the older iPad Air have trended negative as it is considered obsolete, with operating system support limited to iOS 12.5.4.[5][6] It does not support the iPadOS operating system that was released in September 2019.[7]
