What's the job?
Relatively high end games, office work, emails, Web surfing (many tabs at once for research) , movies, multitasking, streaming music and feeding other media streamers, multiple organizational and shopping/searching apps, using as a standalone speaker for music when away from a decent setup. Just about every genre of usage.

Obviously you've never owned an iPad you only buy £50 rubbish.
we've got 2 iPads but I got them free
So how can £50 amazon tablet be better then free iPad?

nothing's better value than free where tablets are concerned!

Thankyou, Nescafe, for giving me one of them :)

Heat. Great tablet, the processor is acres beyond the android tabs, and that's coming from a techie who is android through and through. I have an Ipad air 2 because it's the best tool for the job. When a better specced and made tablet comes along with the latest Android on it and guaranteed ota updates for 3 years let me know as I'll buy it! PS if you have an extra £70 to spare the new ipad 128 is in John Lewis for 429 with a performance boost from the a9 chip.


I used both iOS and android but just curious if you never tried the Pixel C? I love mine. I accept it's not quite as fast as newer iPads but it's as dam near a perfect android tablet (bar pen support). I use that for reading and KODI and my iPad Pro for writing applications. Either way this is a good deal for a very nice screened product.

The concept of dirt-cheap 4G service on a monthly contract with reasonable number of minutes (and some data) is very nice.

Contacting the customer service is awkward via the supplied forms, you have to give your details all the time for a new request, despite having a my-account service (where I expected to be able to chat with them, or open tickets without hindrance).

I needed to contact CS for the third time in a month for stuff which I did not think would even need human interaction:

- the documented default PINs do not work (or just not obviously explain the difference between US and UK documents) - lost service for about half a day until they got me the PUK
- transferring number did not work - when given again the same details, it was all right. Took about 3 working(!) days to set up to happen the next day; of course it didn't. Or at least the old SIM stopped working, the number was just not moving over. They claim it can take over three working(!) days, but of course the old SIM was disconnected at the earliest time (grmbl), but the number did not start working for two days.
- EU roaming in theory is free now (yet?), but NO roaming is configured for pay monthly customers. You need to request it specifically, pay a quite hefty deposit, and send copies of bank account statements as you are a new customer. Without it, the SIM won't even connect where every other European SIM just works fine (and absolutely free).

All in all, I had no service for about four days, which probably would be resolved in 30 minutes at any other provider you know.
roflll
Isn't their customer service rubbish? I've had a look at reviews online (I know that most networks get plenty of bad reviews), but TPO sound worse than many of the others.Has anyone had a good experience using this network?

They are terrible and as I've mentioned in a thread before; Will vote down on every TPO link.
I gave them the benefit of the doubt about a month ago, and have really regretted it! Tried to port my number over to them, and the process took over 3 weeks, during which time I didn't have service on both my old network and on TPO. Be warned...

The iPad Pro has extra speakers that would be blocked by this cover.
Good price if you have the Air 2. Also pretty sure the iPad Pro 9.7 is an identical build?

Bought three of these sets, each in a different colour, for my kids for Christmas (as I'm sick of them pinching mine). They are great. However, after two updates they all stopped working and I've had to get refunds
Grey ones are 40p cheaper I can't see anywhere they are mfi certified though

Great price! Went for the 2017 iPad myself as I didn't see that the screen was that much worse and it'll likely be supported for longer (and I got 4% student discount).
How did you get a student discount?

Apple do 4% student discount on all iPads. I'm not actually a student anymore but have one of the NUS graduate ones which Apple accept in store.

Good value but very very little data. I use this daily on average :D
If that's true, you probably pay a little more than £3.99 for your contract :)


Indeed £16 for unlt/unlt/20gb :D
Feature phones = 2G basic phones?

TPO piggybacks off 3 network, so wouldn't work on those.

the data allowance will make this cold for most
But for those that can keep their data under 512MB then this is pretty good (I'm considering this). Turning my mobile data on only when you need it saves battery and allowance. Most of the time I have Wi-Fi at work and home, and Wi-Fi uses much less power than mobile data.

Can we guess which store, or will you be telling us ;)
You could look on the receipt...shoreham in West Sussex

Is there actually a way to make the picture full size, out of interest? I've always wondered, since clicking on it is a link to the retailer, and 'open in new tab' doesn't help. A little hard to see the store name on a receipt that's about a square cm. General question since I appreciate people going to the effort of taking a photo of what they got, and it's frustrating when it's made unusably tiny.


I know what you mean, it's fine on phones and iPads but when viewing on a PC I don't know anyway of viewing the pictures at full size, it's about the size of a postage stamp, if you click on it it takes you to the stores website!

Depends what you looking at it on. On my phone you just click on the picture and it's easy to read the name of the store, or you can zoom in.

It was a general question by the first person but I thought I'd match their cheek of "shall we guess the store". :P

That's the description of AppleCare+ - This item is the traditional AppleCare that you could apply to a device anytime in the first year to extend to 2 years.
I'm pretty sure 1 year is for Macs, 60 days for iOS devices, last I bought any AppleCare anyway...wasn't too long ago.

As the post above this is the old one gives the same coverage as Legisation plus phone support.

Will this fit an iPad Pro 9.7" by any chance? Its the same dimensions, right?
I bought one via an eBay seller for £15 last December. Really good case, and having the detachable keyboard to match is great.
These cases are really heavy :| . Good price though, and they do work if you drop the iPad from 6ft or less.

I have this watch. It's terrible. Battery is just poor not even lasting a day. Just don't bother you will thank me for it. It's sat on my bedside cabinet for months.
Is this the fake version of the tag heuer connected watch?

Apparently a new version of that is announced on 14th march so hopefully this will have a new one coming too.
Had a Neptune pine (still got it somewhere).
Android unusable on this sort of screen size, imagine a round screen will be even worse. Only use mine as a 3g do for for the car or as a GPS device on my blade chroma.
For reference this is android running on a watch not an android wear device like the LG/Motorola etc watches.

I will say again there is NO confirmation that there will new models or on that date. Best not to listen to rumour and those telling people there will be new models on this date... they shouldn't listen to rumour either. Until it's fact. Check Apples event website as no mention on a event on 4th/5th or end of this month and they normally announce event dates in advance (months).

Which iPad Air is this?

This isn't a deal as such. Just a way to buy something over a longer period without incurring any interest. This is just a ploy by Apple to get more of their overpriced goods sold.


One day if you work hard enough, you too will be able to afford nice things
Which iPad Air is this?
It's poorly described too as nowhere on the page does it state the last version of IOS it'll support. I'm assuming it's already out of date for IOS 10.

Can Apple seriously still be selling the original IPad Mini?http://www.apple.com/uk/shop/product/FD543B/A/refurbished-ipad-mini-with-wi-fi-cellular-16gb-white-silver
I'm using one now and it's struggling to even render many web pages nowadays.

Of course they are, people will buy it just because it's Apple.

Oops ***embarassed face*** my bad! I should have checked what I'd wrote
Think before you vote hot for deal you see if stock is readily available. it's no dealf it's only available in 1 store.. it was a retailer advertising it would be classed as mis-advertising and don't think it can be classed as hot if only one ( or non ) on shelf
£212 sounds awfully expensive for an orange shelf label.
Voted hot cause good price but would personally not buy as 32gb is barely enough for me nowadays XD (I battle with keeping 1 GB of 32 on my phone, and 3GB of 32 oh my iPad)
This will perhaps be a one off! Bought one at this price from Sainsbury's when nationally they reduced the iPad airs to exactly this price. (£212) That was a year ago so this store must have found old stock from somewhere!

Would this work with a windows 10 tablet. Not too bothered about the case but I am looking for a decent keyboard. Thanks.
Mine arrived today and works perfectly with my Windows 10 tablet. The case is super nice and the iPad air cradle bit can come off so you can use it as a case for any tablet expect the tablet is not held in place. Thinking of modding it with a little elastic for luls. Bought it just for the keyboard which is pretty good and ultra slim for £7. Also the weird button next to alt automatically works as a start button in windows 10

I voted cold because of what I read on the main page.

"The troll poster Sid Harper will put in his usual rubbish criticism - what a waste of space"...dont care if this is true or not but you want to use the few lines that apear on the main page to get people to look at your deal, not to make you look like a bitter vindictive troll yourself.

Never trust spammers, spammers always lying.
7day shop is a spammer, they sold/leaked my e-mail address to chinese spammers, few dodgy offers a day.

Not True!
I got one of these a few months ago for my ipad air 2. It looks genuine and chargers well, however when using ipad while plugged in to charger I get the slow glitchy screen touch response - a quick google says this is due to non genuine chargers!
I suppose it genuinely does charge Apple devices

but i thought the Chinese were a great bunch of lads ?https://fxtraderpaul.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/the-chinese-a-great-bunch-of-lads.jpg

Deffo don't buy a 'refurbished' one off Direct Vacuums. I got one and these machines are end of life units bought from Vax. All they do is wash the bits that you can see and send it out as a refurbished unit. I ended up getting one through Amazon Warehouse for £85 and it is bob on! A very effective and robust unit which turned out to be brand new open box!


I also bought same price from amazon warehouse and it was brand new, just open box.

To those who are flaming the OP I can confirm that this is/was a 100% genuine deal. I, too, thought this would be a wild goose chase which is why I sent my husband out to Tesco Extra Slough this morning. He got there for 9am and went straight to the Electricals counter. There were two guys in front of him who each bough one and then my husband got the last two, the only colour they had left was rose gold. They're both sealed boxes - 32gb wifi model for £265. Happy to post the receipt if someone can tell me how. PS the other one was for my dad (we did not buy these to sell on).


glad at least some people managed to get deal
Nothing in Aylesbury extra today
I was the first guy to be at the electricals desk at Slough store, my intention was to purchase 2, one for me and the other for my sister, but I then realised all the other people behind (5 - 6 people) me also were after this. They were all closely and anxiously huddled behind me waiting for the price to be scanned. One guy from behind 4th in queue spoke to me and said "excuse me is this the deal from HUKD, their £265" I think he wanted everyone to know he wanted one too so they all don't get too greedy. Because I'm a nice guy, I just bought 1 in the end so everyone else can get one too, but to be honest I'm so happy and very grateful to the OP. I feel bad for the people in the queue who missed out, should have been restricted to 1 per customer.

How quickly does the cash back normally go through ?
This has definitely been mentioned before, but a worthwhile reminder I suppose.

ipad air Introducing the iPad Air

The iPad Air is a tablet produced by Apple which combines high performance and low weight (along with the usual aesthetic quality that you’d expect from Apple’s design team). It’s part of the iPad range which started life in 2010, introducing touchscreen interfaces and virtual keyboards, features which brought tiny tablets closer to ordinary PCs than ever before.

iPad Air: Powerful Handheld Device

Tablets aren’t a new phenomenon. In fact, Apple themselves launched a semi-successful primitive tablet called the Newton in the early 1990s, before the iPod, iPhone and iPad were glimmers in Steve Jobs’ eye.

However, modern tablets have really only appeared in the past 10 years, primarily due to the adoption of touchscreen technology. These days, all tablets feature screens that can be manipulate via your fingers or specialist stylus devices, and hardly any come with keyboards as part of the package.

Apple has pioneered modern tablet development, integrating their iOS software into some of the most advanced tablets available. They also found a way to create tablets that people would use. Early versions worked well enough but failed to attract mass customer bases. When the iPad arrived in 2010, this all changed. By 2012, over 100 million iPads had been sold, and tablets had become utterly mainstream.

However, Apple haven’t enjoyed a monopoly in the tablet market. Firms like Microsoft, Sony, Samsung and Amazon have released popular tablets of their own, and Android compatible devices have attracted a higher market share than iOS models. This competition has spurred Apple on to continually reinvent their iPad range, delivering different features and higher performance with each iteration.

For example, the Air arrived in 2013 as a new variant of the iPad. Sitting alongside the iPad Mini (launched in 2012) and the iPad Pro (which appeared in 2015), it forms part of a trio of devices for consumers to choose from, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

This buyer’s guide will explain the features and advantages (or disadvantages) of the iPad Air, as well as the different versions available, allowing you to make the perfect tablet purchase.

What Can You Do With Your iPad Air?

Devices like the iPad Air have a wide range of potential applications. For example, they are relied upon by millions of businesses around the world to provide point of sale systems and customer information. You’ll often see serving staff at high-end restaurants using iPads to assist customers or in pop-up businesses where a highly mobile POS system is a huge advantage.

They can be used in academic and professional situations as well, helping to deliver presentations or lectures or taking down notes and storing them for future use. The ability to search the web silently makes them a handy research tool for all kinds of learners, from primary school to postgraduate.

However, iPads are most commonly used in the home. They are a handy, slimline computer that can be tucked away and quickly brought out whenever needed, and have a huge range of capabilities, including:ipad air front

  • Searching the web for TV schedules or trivia
  • Streaming TV shows, movies and sport
  • Playing games
  • Controlling smart devices in the home like speakers, lights, radios or cookers
  • Taking photos and capturing video
  • Checking social media profiles, posting content and sending e-mails
  • Running fitness apps to help with workouts and fitness routines
  • Carrying out video calls from anywhere in the world via FaceTime
  • Recording and editing music via apps like GarageBand
  • Navigating unfamiliar areas via mapping apps
  • Purchasing items online and processing payments
  • Reading eBooks
  • Hooking your iPad Air up with your TV to stream content
  • Maintaining a calendar and receiving notifications

As the list above suggests, iPads are very useful items to have around the house, with applications for kids, adults, travelling, cooking, education, socialising and, more than anything else, entertainment. However, let’s look at the iPad Air in particular. All of these functions are available for the Mini and iPad Pro too. What makes the iPad Air stand out from the crowd?

iPad Air: Specifications

The first thing to note when thinking about the iPad Air is that there are two options for purchase, an iPad Air 2 (which has been out since 2014) or to wait for the iPad Air 3 (which should be released very soon). Let’s take a look at the specs of the iPad Air 2:

  • Dimensions: 24 x 17 x 0.6cm
  • Weight: 437g
  • Processor: 1.5GHz tri-core 64-bit ARMv8-A "Typhoon"
  • Graphics processor: PowerVR GXA6850
  • Screen type: 9.7 inches, multi-touch screen with scratch-resistant glass
  • Screen resolution: 1536 x 2048 pixels
  • Memory: 2GB LPDDR3 RAM
  • Disk space options: Either 32 or 128GB flash memory
  • Operating system: iOS 8.0 or higher
  • Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-fi: (802.11a/b/g/n/ac); dual band (2.4GHz and 5GHz); HT80 with MIMO
  • Features a 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Outputs: USB 2.0
  • Max. Video resolution: 1080p

The Air 2 comes in two models: One featuring just wi-fi, and the other with wi-fi and 3G mobile phone connectivity. The mobile version is slightly heavier, but there are no other important differences.

There are also various cosmetic options to choose from. For instance, the iPad Air comes in a range of colours: gold, rose gold, space grey and silver.

The Strengths and Weaknesses of the iPad Air

When it was released, the iPad Air 2 was a significant development from the original iPad Air. The weight had been reduced, the screen was larger, Touch ID was introduced to allow fingerprint identification, an anti-reflective coating was applied to the screen, and the sound volume was beefed up too.

At the time of its release, commentators noted plenty of strengths. They were wowed by the new laminated Retina display, the ultra-high resolution 8MP camera, range of disk space options and the handy addition of Touch-ID. Many also talked about how well balanced the iPad Air 2 felt in their hands and its ability to handle split-screen apps.

It’s hard to find a negative opinion about Apple’s iPad Air 2, but nobody’s perfect. For one thing, the sound playback volume was still a little thinner than other tablets and the price level was relatively high as well, placing the original iPad Air 2 firmly in the top-end bracket of the tablet scene. As with all Apple devices, it relies on iOS, which isn’t everyone’s cup of tea (and is much less easy to customise than Android).

For most buyers, these are minor gripes. When it was released, the iPad Air 2 was state of the art. It’s aged a couple of years since, but it remains one of the most accomplished tablets around.

Different Versions and Releases of the iPad Air

  • The iPad Air - The first iPad Air emerged in September 2013, sporting iOS 7, access to the Apple App Store, plenty of installed apps like Siri and Safari, seamless synching with Macs and other Apple devices, the ability to make Skype calls and a revamped interface and screen. Basically, this streamlined tablet looked the part and delivered the kind of features everyday users needed (and still does).
  • The iPad Air 2 - The iPad Air 2 represented a big step forward over the iPad Air, with a lighter design, larger screen and the innovative Touch ID touchpad that allows you to store your fingerprint and make secure online payments without entering your card details every time. It comes in a single size (9.7 inches), but you’ll find two different disk storage options (32MB and 128MB) as well as Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi and 3G versions.

When you check the iPad Air listings on HotUKDeals, you’ll notice that a range of storage sizes is available (32 and 128GB at the moment). Does this make a major difference to the performance of the pad, and is it worth spending up to £100 extra for more space?

Don’t assume that more storage space automatically equals vastly improved performance. In the past, that may have been the case, with bloated software quickly filling up disk space. These days Apple closely watches the efficiency of iOS and its major apps, trying to keep everything as lean as possible; so huge disks aren’t essential.

You can also store software, photos, videos and documents on cloud-based services, instead of keeping them on your local disk, reducing the need for extra space. Apple’s iCloud is hooked up automatically to every iPad Air and allows you to store anything purchased via iTunes. You’ll receive a free allowance (usually around 5GB) and then pay a small amount for extra storage. Given the price difference between 32GB and 128GB iPad Airs, this could well be the cheapest option.

Then again, it can be handy to have large amounts of disk space at your disposal. For example, if you intend to shoot large amounts of 4K video, you won’t be able to store it straight away in the iCloud. In that case, you’ll need a big disk on which to store your footage as you capture and edit it. The same applies to music producers and artists.

Larger disk storage sizes are also useful for fans of high definition movies and TV. If you want to store films on your iPad, HD versions occupy far more space than low-definition equivalents. Again, you can’t really store large video libraries on the Cloud, so a larger disk makes sense.

These are specialist requirements and don’t really apply to everyday users. If all you want to do is play iTunes tracks, store photos and stream Netflix, the 32GB models will do just fine and cost far less to purchase.

What Kind of Accessories Should You Buy for the iPad Air?

When you make an iPad Air purchase, the accessories you buy along with your tablet could make a huge difference to how you use the device (and how long it lasts). Here are some of the most common accessories available:

  • External Keyboards - All iPads have a ‘virtual keyboard’ installed as part of the furniture, but if you don’t like using touchscreens and want something more user-friendly, you can also purchase external keyboards to hook up to your tablet. Products like the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard are designed to slot underneath the iPad, which stands upright, just like a normal laptop. That way, you can use software like Office for iPad and instantly detach the keyboard for storage or other uses as the need arises.
  • Pencils and Styluses - If you intend to use your iPad for freehand drawing, writing thoughts or for diagrams and presentations, it may be a good idea to find a stylus you are comfortable with. Unfortunately, the Apple Pencil doesn’t work with iPad Airs (just the iPad Pro), but it’s not the only choice on the market. Products like the Adonit Jot provide precise drawing, while the chunkier Cosmonaut from Studio Neat is ideal for kids.
  • Cases - Whenever you buy a product for hundreds of pounds, it makes sense to protect it from damage and general wear and tear. In the case of the iPad Air, specialist cases are an essential purchase. Apple’s own Smart Case is the leader of the pack, featuring a microfibre lining that protects against smudges and also folding into a handy stand to prop up your tablet. There’s also the Smart Cover, a cheaper option that attaches to the iPad Air via a magnetised sheet. But Apple’s cases and covers aren’t the end of the story. Models from firms like Logitech, Belkin and RC all offer sturdy protection (often with keyboards integrated into the case, which can be a handy double-up if you need a solid typing option).
  • Headphones - If you intend to take your iPad Air on the road or need to listen privately to TV, music or movies, a good set of compatible headphones will be vital. If you can afford them, go for a pair of Bluetooth enabled wireless headphones to give you a much mobility as possible. Models from Jabra tend to have good battery life and solid performance. However, go for in earphones from Bose if you need complete sound cancellation (which could be especially handy for frequent fliers).
  • Charging devices - All iPad Airs need to be charged up and, although you’ll receive the standard Apple charger with your device, there are other charging products that could be worthwhile. For example, you might want to extend the range of your charger or hook it up to a laptop via a Lightning USB cable. Power banks are another option, providing a ready store of charge for when you really need it. Swivel chargers are also available, making it easier to charge multiple devices (handy for families).

What About the iPad Pro and the iPad Mini - Are They Worth Considering?

The iPad Air isn’t the only model in the iPad family. In fact, when you search for iPad Air deals, you’ll almost certainly come across iPad Pros and iPad Minis for sale as well, so it makes sense to quickly talk about their own strengths and weaknesses.

The iPad Mini is, as its name suggests, a smaller version of the iPad Air. In its most recent incarnation (the iPad Mini 4), it weighs just 299g and is 0.6cm thick. Despite being so small, the Mini has a 64-bit processor, and advanced camera and the same Touch ID technology you’ll find on the iPad Air.

One of the great things about the Mini is its price tag. You’ll often find Minis retailing for less than an iPad Air, making them extremely economical. The graphics on the Mini also tend to be markedly sharper than other models but with the smaller display size, this won’t necessarily make a huge difference to TV and movie fans.

As for the Pro, it’s the most powerful iPad out there. The larger screen size makes it useful for artists and designers (and anyone who wants to work freehand with an Apple Pencil, which only the Pro supports). It also works with Apple’s Smart Keyboard, an ultra-light keyboard that doubles as a case.

Generally speaking, the Pro will appeal to professional users and those with a little extra money to spend. The Air is ideal for general home use, while the Mini is perfect for taking on holidays or coach journeys.

Are there any Alternatives to the iPad Air 2 or 3?

It’s also worth exploring the alternatives to iPads in general. Apple isn’t the only tablet maker in town, even if they do have a reputation as a market leader. Other companies also produce great products, often at lower prices.

High-quality alternatives include the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, which probably has a better screen than the iPad Air, is slimmer and easy to use, although it falls down on battery life a little. Google’s Pixel C is another popular competitor. In this case, the powerful system architecture and excellent screen, as well as the flexibility of Android probably make the Pixel the finest Android based tablet.

There’s also the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, which runs Windows 10, has an excellent keyboard and kickstand and a razor-sharp screen. Again, it’s a real competitor to the iPad Air, and it’s well worth thinking about before you make a purchase.

Whether you opt for an Apple, a Google or a Microsoft device, there are plenty of excellent tablets on offer at HotUKDeals. With Apple, you pretty much know what you’ll get: a reliable, high-end tablet with excellent support and regular software updates. You may pay extra, which many people are happy to do. But if you want a tablet for less, look at other manufacturers.

When and Where to Buy an iPad Air

There are plenty of places to pick up an iPad Air 2. Before you make a decision, be sure to check the HotUKDeals iPad Air listings to see which companies are running discounts. And head to the Apple Store as well to compare the specs of the various iPad options. It’s worth double checking, just to make sure you need the iPad Air instead of the Mini or the Pro.

Now, search for current deals. Expect to find reductions from Apple themselves at their website at www.apple.com, along with retailers like Currys, John Lewis, Asda, Argos, Tesco and online sellers like Amazon and the BT Shop. When you’ve found a deal or voucher that looks good, just head to the vendor and take advantage of the offer.

It also helps to pick the right time to search. Apple hasn’t always been eager participants in Black Friday’s retail festival, but recently they have been known to offer generous discounts, so search in late November as the day approaches. Look out for great deals around the January Sales as well.

When the iPad Air 3 materialises, it could also be an opportune moment to search for iPad Air 2 deals. Sure, you may be purchasing an older tablet, but it’s still a market leader and prices should plummet when its successor arrives.
