    I want an Ipad Air, but all I want is Wifi.

    Can I use this Wifi only and never activate the phone part?

    This is such a good deal much cheaper than the Wifi only model.

    I see they're dumping the models that can't run all of iOS 9, which could be nice for some people but has made these obsolete once iOS 9 is released.

    The only part of iOS 9 unsupported on these models is split screen view.

    For now, but that seems to be a big deal with a lot of people and could be a reason for the huge price drop.

    Air doesn't run as hot and gets better battery life than air 2 so there are things gained as well.

    That's a good deal. I figured the low price was due to activation be required.
