Love is in the air. The fifth generation of Apple's big seller is now available for purchase. Finally, the California-based company unveils a thinner device -- and at a height of a mere 7.5 mm (~0.3 inches), it has certainly earned the name "Air". The new A7 processor, familiar from the iPhone 5s, is at work in the newest iPad as well -- and it even clocks at a higher frequency than in its pocket-sized sibling. How did the iPad Air fare in our test laboratory? Read on to find out...
iPad Air vs iPad 4 comparison review: Which is the best full-size iPad?
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
If you're on the iPad 3 or earlier, the iPad Air is a highly appealing buy, and a bit of a bargain, we'd say. But paying the same price all over again a year (or less) after shelling out for the iPad 4 may be less clear-cut, unless you're flush with cash. Do you find your arm aching after using your iPad 4? If you find this annoying, the iPad Air is the answer to your prayers. But for us - and, we'd guess, for most users - arm ache is only an occasional annoyance, and not really worth spending upwards of 400 quid all over again.

100% Apple iPad Air review
Source: Expert Reviews English
There's no doubting that with the iPad Air Apple has made its best tablet so far. It's absolutely beautiful to look at, has a stunningly fast processor, excellent battery life and an amazing touchscreen. While the iPad 4 is far from out-of-date, the power and size on offer here could be compelling enough of a reason to upgrade. For most people, we think the hardest decision is going to be one of size, and whether they should buy the iPad Air or the smaller, but identically specced, iPad Mini with Retina Display. It's a tough call and the incredibly lightness and slim case of the iPad Air may just swing it for the larger tablet: it's something we'd happily carry everywhere. It's our new Ultimate award-winning tablet and the best you can get.

Apple iPad Air vs Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet

As users of Apple products including Macs and iPhones, the iPad Air is the natural and more fitting choice for us. We'd choose the iPad Air not only due to its stunning design and easy to use software, but also because it ties in well with the our Apple ecosystem including iCloud, our purchased apps and our AirPlay compatible speakers.

100% iPad Air review: Apple's sleek, fast, amazingly lightweight tablet
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
The iPad Air is the finest tablet currently available to humanity. But the same was once true of the iPad 4; is this enough of an improvement to warrant an upgrade? The Air has two main advantages over the 4: it's slimmer and lighter, and it's faster. The former is an appealing upgrade, since the iPad 4 can tire the arm when used one-handed, particularly for reading. But the latter won't make much difference for most users right now, since the iPad 4 is already more than powerful enough to deal with current apps. If you're on the iPad 3 or earlier, on the other hand, the Air is a no-brainer: a gossamer-light, gorgeous-looking, Lightning-compatible tablet with a super-fast processor and a decent price tag. Three months on we remain delighted with the iPad Air, its sleek looks and its super-slick performance.

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet vs iPad Air vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014): the weigh-in
Source: Stuff TV English
On paper, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet beats its rivals across most of our categories, but that battery life is a niggling concern; will it be enough to make best use of its features? For the time being, Apple's iPad Air is still comfortably ensconced in the top spot on our Top 10 Tablets list. But we foresee the latest Sony tablet giving it a run for its money.

Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 vs iPad Air head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Even though the iPad Air scored an impressive five stars when we reviewed it on release last year, since then the market has moved on and having won four of our nine rounds to the iPad Air’s three, we’ve got to give the best enterprise tablet award out of these two devices to the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2in. However, with two of the rounds resulting in draws the battle has been a close one and both tablets certainly have merit in the workplace. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 offers users a sizeable display, an array of productivity-focused applications and services, a robust battery life and a useful S Pen stylus. But to counter this, the iPad Air boasts a more travel-friendly design, more robust security and is significantly cheaper.

80% iPad Air review - latest iPad is great, but is the iPad still the best tablet?
Source: PC Advisor English
In many respects a triumph, the iPad Air also introduces compromises to hit the low-weight/thin-case targets. Sound quality through the new stereo speaker has deteriorated, and although a matter of taste we found the iPad mini-style case loses the premium feel of preceding generations of iPad. The iOS 7 interface, not popular with every user, cannot be avoided on this device and it suffers some stickiness in app zooming. Ultimately though the iPad Air will suceed by simple nature of its new weight – the lose of almost 200g is so significant to its handling, and means it could encroach on E Ink ebook readers; only with the power and versatility, not to mention gorgeous colour screen, of a real iPad.

iPad mini 2 Retina vs iPad Air comparison review: Which new iPad should I buy?
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
Which iPad would we recommend? Obviously that depends on your needs. If portability is top priority, the iPad mini 2 is still the best option, although the iPad Air is so slim and light that it's close to catching up; the iPad Air can be used one-handed for quite a long time without tiring the arm, which makes it great for reading - although if that's all you want to do with your iPad, you could save some money and just get the old iPad mini. The A7 processor on the new iPads make them superb games machines, and ideal for photo and video editing, especially for the next few years as such apps get more demanding. But the iPad Air has the larger screen to go with those activities - we'd rather edit movies on a 9.7in screen, and games are more immersive on the larger device. Hopefully we've summarised the strengths and weaknesses of Apple's new iPads effectively, but our last word would be this: if you heart is set on one of the new iPads, is portability or the screen your first priority? The two lines have got closer on both fronts, but the iPad Air remains the best option for a stunning visual experience, while the iPad mini 2 is a great buy if you want to slip a fast, powerful computing device in a handbag or rucksack pocket.

70% Apple iPad Air Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Apple iPad Air starts at Rs 35,900 for the 16GB, Wi-Fi model and we feel this is a bit too much for what’s on offer. The drastic weight loss and new internals aside, we don’t see why someone would buy the Air instead of the 32GB iPad mini with Retina. Not only are you getting double the capacity but it’s spec-for-spec identical to its larger sibling. We’ve also seen that 16GB is simply not enough for iPad apps and your media files, so there’s another problem. If Apple had fitted a better camera (8MP iSight from the iPhone 5) and Touch ID (from the 5s), then there would be a better distinction between the two tablets and perhaps, the high starting price of the Air could be justified. Overall, if really must have the extra 1.9-inches of the Air, then go for it but we strongly suggest you get the equally well equipped 32GB iPad mini with Retina for the same price.

This is truly the new iPad we've wanted for a long time, at least as far as the design and form factor is concerned. With the iPad Mini, it was clear that Apple's focus would be on improving the portability and use comfort. The only drawback is that the thinner aluminum on the back does not feel as solid as the previous generations. But, without doubt, the best tablet in the market is now even better.

iPad Air vs Nexus 10 head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
For yet another year Apple has secured its place as king of the 10in tablet space. However, given the fact that the Nexus 10 is over a year old at this point, this isn't really all that surprising. We're amazed that the Nexus 10 managed to stack up as well as it did against Apple's new iPad Air given its age. We can't wait to see what Google has up its sleeve for the next Nexus 10, and, given the ongoing usefulness of its original, it will undoubtedly be impressive.

A Grounded Evaluation Of The iPad Air
Source: Hot Hardware English
Summarizing the iPad Air is tricky business. One one hand, Apple has done some great things here, most notably with the physical design. The iPad Air isn't just lighter than its predecessor, it's almost half-a-pound lighter, which is a significant reduction in weight that's both noticeable and appreciated.

90% Apple iPad Air: The TechSpot Review
Source: Techspot English
The display on the iPad Air is no longer the highest resolution panel found on a tablet but it continues to look as good as ever. I have zero complaints with the IPS display as colors and text were sharp and vivid while brightness remained a strong point. The 4:3 aspect ratio will still cause some to gripe compared to 16:9 offerings that are more suited to video and the outdoor performance isn’t anything to write home about. Either way, I suspect this screen will continue to be used in future iPads as there’s simply nothing wrong with it. If you’re looking to pick up a full-sized tablet this holiday season, the iPad should be near the top of your list if Android isn’t a priority for you. In the event you already own an iPad, an upgrade to the Air should be a justifiable investment should you have the third generation tablet or older. If you’re rocking the fourth generation, I would probably stick with it until next year’s model shows up.

Apple has always said that the iPad isn’t intended to replace a laptop, and if you need to run the full version of Microsoft Office then there are many Windows laptops, as well as tablets such as the Microsoft Surface, that will be more suitable. However, the arrival of Apple’s iWork and Microsoft Office Mobile proves that the iPad Air can certainly handle productivity software when it needs to.

iPad Air vs iPad 4 head to head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
It perhaps will come as little surprise that the iPad Air has won in a head-to-head review over its predecessor, the iPad 4, but is it worth the upgrade? We think so. While there's not that much in the way of new specs beyond the upgrade to Apple's 64-bit A7 chip and the firm's iOS 7 operating system, the iPad Air is so much more comfortable to use due to its slim profile and low weight.

Apple always likes to talk about the “magical” experience of using the iPad, and holding the iPad Air in my hands does remind me of what it was like when the very first iPad was launched. I can understand why the fanbois who already own the iPad 4 weren’t tempted to queue overnight to buy the iPad Air, but people like me who have an older iPad may well find the urge to upgrade hard to resist this Christmas.

When Apple unveiled the iPad Air, many dismissed it as simply another rehash with a faster processor. The iPad Air is the best iOS tablet to date – with a sleek design, excellent performance and battery life. But be warned: the 16GB of storage on the entry level model will get used up quickly by large 64-bit apps, so it's worth considering the 32GB option if you're an app junkie.

90% iPad Air review: The best tablet gets better
Source: PC World English
The iPad was already the best large tablet out there. If it had any deficiencies, it was really in terms of weight and size, and that’s where the iPad Air shines. It’s still got a battery that will last for 10 hours, and now it’s twice as fast as it was before, opening the door for even more apps that can boost personal productivity or just entertain you that much faster. It’s right there in the name: The iPad Air is still an iPad, but it’s lighter and thinner and twice as fast to boot. If you want a tablet you can comfortably hold with one hand, look elsewhere. Otherwise, look no further than the iPad Air.

The iPad Air features an impressively slender form factor and, thanks largely to its A7 processor and optimizations in iOS 7, it still manages to perform twice as fast and deliver just as much battery life as its predecessor. In fact, Apple’s latest tablet, as it exists, is definitely one of the best (if not the best) tablet out there right now. However, I can’t help but feel that it could be even better. Where’s my TouchID? How about a bigger, better camera on this late 2013 tablet? I suppose this opens the opportunity for an iPad Pro, with such premium features. Or just next year’s Air. But I can’t help but want them now.

The iPad Air is, undoubtedly, the best iPad Apple has produced yet, and by far the most comfortable full-sized tablet we've used. We're not sure the inclusion of a 64-bit chip is worth users getting too excited about yet. While it offered a slight bump in performance, and likely aided the improvement in battery life, the iTunes App Store is still desolate when it comes to 64-bit optimised apps. The only real improvement – besides the slightly better performance and battery life – is its design, and the new-look thin and light tablet makes it worth the upgrade.
