91.7% Apple iPad Air 5 2022 Review: Many Yays, Few Nays | Notebookcheck
Apple surprised everybody by putting their fast M1 chip, that we already know from their MacBook Air and iPad Pro, into the brand-new iPad Air. Find out in our review who will benefit from this upgrade, and whether or not the more expensive iPad Pro is still worth the premium.

The iPad Air (2022) continues to be the sweet spot in Apple’s tablet collection, offering more similarities to the premium iPad Pro 11 than ever without a dramatic price increase. It does practically everything you’ll need from an iPad, and the M1 chip will continue to deliver high performance for some time to come.

90% Apple iPad Air (5th generation) review: Spec-tock-ular
Source: Android Authority English
The iPad Air (5th generation) gives you the most bang for your buck of any tablet to date. Apple’s software support is guaranteed to keep it fresh and stable, but it’s the overkill M1 chip and healthy supply of RAM that ensures it’s future-proofed for many, many years to come. Of course, aside from 5G support, this was fundamentally true of the last-gen iPad Air. Sure, it didn’t have an M1 chip, but the A14 Bionic was already far ahead of the pack in 2020, and remains competitive with the very best mobile silicon today. Meanwhile, the same gripes we had with the 4th generation Air are all present and accounted for, and the grumbles over the 64GB base storage and 60Hz refresh rate have only gotten louder with the passage of time. The iPad Air is in a weird spot, then. It’s still a fantastic gateway into the iPad ecosystem that offers just enough flexibility to function as an “iPad Pro Lite” for work and play. Likewise, if you only want to stream movies and play a handful of games, the base model is a steal, and its screen, design, and feature set are enough of a bump over the regular iPad to justify the extra spend. But even with all that bleeding edge raw power, the iPad Air (5th gen) feels oddly outdated at times — a tablet that received a massive boost in an area it already excelled in, while neglecting its legacy flaws.

Apple iPad Air (5th Generation) review
Source: What Hi-Fi English
While the iPad Air 5th Generation is undeniably an improvement over the iPad Air 4, its key upgrades are to its processor and front-facing camera. Those upgrades are each great in their own right, but for us what really matters are the picture and sound performance, and in these areas it’s pretty much business as usual. There’s nothing wrong with that, though, as the iPad Air is supremely talented in these areas and more or less untouchable by other tablets in its price range. There’s an argument that the standard iPad is the better performance-per-pound proposition for the pure content consumer, but the new Air is the model to go for if you can afford it.

Source: Think Digit English
There’s a big conundrum if you go buying the iPad Air 2022 in the market. It starts at ₹54,900 (WiFi) for the 64GB model and ₹68,900 (WiFi) for the 256GB option. This brings it really close to the 11-inch iPad Pro (WiFI) with 128GB storage which is an overall better product than the iPad Air 2022 at just 3,000 INR markup. Of course, this doesn’t involve the additional cost of accessories like Apple Pencil or Magic Keyboard but if you have the budget go ahead and get the 11-inch iPad Pro.

In short, the 2022 version of the iPad Air is the best of its kind to date. It’s very close to being as good as the somewhat more expensive iPad Pro, and if you’re already an Apple user and used to navigating the company’s ecosystem of apps and services, the iPad Air is actually the most obvious choice if you’re looking for a tablet right now. All the more frustrating, then, that Apple hasn’t gone all the way as far as the screen is concerned. It’s quite obvious that the sleek, slim and lightning-fast iPad Air deserves a Mini-LED screen. Let’s hope it comes with the next update.

86% iPad Air 5 Long Term Review: The new ‘base MacBook Air’?
Source: Tech PP English
In fact, the addition of the touch interface (good luck finding that on a MacBook Air or Pro) and Apple Pencil support brings its own set of benefits to power users, including general ease of use on the move and better stylus support – benefits which many notebooks at this price will struggle to match. Round that off with supreme portability, great design, and extraordinary battery life, and we think we can go out on a limb and say that if you are in the market for a powerful notebook that you can carry around, and are not tied down to specific desktop or platform apps, then the iPad Air (5th generation) is perhaps one of the best options you can get for around Rs 50,000.

As far as direct competition goes, the iPad Air (5th generation) slots in behind the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 ($699) and Lenovo Tab P12 Pro ($699), but ahead of the Galaxy Tab S7 FE ($529), unless you’re looking at the underpowered 5G model of the latter (which we don’t recommend). The Galaxy Tab S8 gets closer than ever to challenging Apple’s tablet dominance with faster charging, but it’s hampered by Android’s poor optimization for larger screens, not-so-stellar battery life, and is eons behind on raw performance.The iPad Air (5th generation) is still uncontested as the best sub-flagship tablet you can buy, and possibly the easiest product to recommend from Apple’s entire, behemoth ecosystem. If you’re rocking any pre-2020 iPad and don’t want to go Pro, this is the one to get. Let’s just hope the next Air gets to “tick” off some of those persistent caveats.

80% Apple iPad Air (2022) review: The chosen one
Source: Gadgets Now English
The iPad as a tablet has little competition. Apple may not be the number one player but no one blends the hardware and software in a tablet as seamlessly. But that’s been par for the course. The M1-powered iPad Air could usher in a new era of dominance for Apple as it brings a ridiculous amount of power to a tablet. And that too for Rs 54,900. Look if you think that the iPad Air is expensive then it’s absolutely fine. But then don’t forget that this is Apple — a company that gives the best of the experience at a top dollar. The iPad Air gives you that experience because of the M1 chip and then some more. It looks effortlessly stylish, is future-proof in terms of software updates and if you shell out extra cash, it will prove to be an absolutely capable laptop replacement. The iPad Pro is meant for the ‘pros’ who don’t want to settle for anything than the best. The iPad Air is meant for the majority of people who want an experience close to the best but aren’t willing to pay too much. The iPad Air will be most people's chosen one.

90% iPad Air (2022) Review: The Power of the Apple M1
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The iPad Air (2022) is yet another fantastic Apple device to be powered by the capable M1 SoC. This new iPad has very few changes compared to its predecessor but even these little things make it better to use, at the same price. The iPad Air (2022) is an excellent media consumption device and can also handle some gaming. With the Apple M1 SoC, the iPad Air (2022) is now on par with the 11-inch iPad Pro (2021) (Review) in terms of performance, while having a significantly lower price. As a result, the iPad Air (2022) will appeal to those who are looking for good performance but who don't necessarily want to spend a premium for the Pro models. While Apple's accessories are expensive, some of them such as the Magic Keyboard definitely help improve the capabilities of the iPad Air (2022). Based on my experience, the iPad Air (2022) might just be able to replace your laptop, as long as you're okay with adjusting your workflow to iPad apps.

Can The Ipad Air M1 Replace Your Laptop?
Source: Reviewed.com English
The M1 iPad Air is a big leap forward for the mid-range iPad. It has the same processor as the best iPad Pro, access to the same apps and accessories, and it's cheaper without missing key features. You may miss things like FaceID and the four-speaker system, but that's all confetti over what's already an excellent tablet. The issue isn't whether the iPad Air is a great tablet, though—it's whether it has the software chops to back up all that hardware. In many cases, for things like knocking out a few emails or taking notes for class, the Air shines as a working tool. But it still can't do everything a laptop can, and you may not realize it until you've already made the jump. Certain web apps, for instance, may not work on your iPad, so you'll want a desktop or laptop nearby for when those cracks start to show. (Filling out the forms my doctor uses is a horrendous process for that very reason.) That said, the M1 iPad Air is still plenty powerful for most tasks. It may not be able to do serious development work, but it's capable of executing most tasks with ease thanks to that snappy M1 chip.

Apple iPad Air 5 Review – Perfect All-Rounder Tablet For Indians
Source: Cashify English
The Apple iPad Air 5 aka Air 2022 refresh is something that I’d definitely recommend to every other person looking to buy a premium tablet. Not only does it come with the portability of a tablet but, carries the performance of a laptop. I mean, of course, I would not go so far as to say that it replaces your laptop. However, there is way too much power in this iPad than you would even require. No Android offering comes remotely close to beating the Apple iPad Air 2022 in this price range. My only complain would be with the base model coming with only 64GB of ROM. The price gap between the base model and the 256GB variant is nuts. Honestly, what you are paying for is the processor and 5G connectivity. Apart from that, everything else is the same as you would see in the iPad Air 4. The iPad Air 5 is the perfect tablet for everyone because of the monstrous versatility that it offers. Seamless performance? HUGE Check. Fantastic gaming? BIG Check. Brilliant display? Check. Great battery life? Check. Good cameras? Check.

Stuck at home over the past couple of years, I have been slowly weaned away from my iPad, which otherwise is the device I carry everywhere for everything from recruitment drives to conferences and even international trips. Now, I have the luxury of sitting in front of the MacBook all the time for work. But as me and others slowly stumble back into a routine that has some semblance of the lives we left behind, the need for a portable device that is also powerful and versatile is slowly returning to our lives. This is where the new iPad Air powered by Apple’s M1 processor could make a serious impact.

80% Apple iPad Air 5th Gen Review: In a zone of its own
Source: The Times of India English
To be honest, the iPad Air 5th Gen is simply unnecessary for those considering to spend extra over the base iPad. At the same time, it is inadequate for those wanting to save some money over the 11-inch iPad Pro. This iPad Air is designed to sit perfectly in between, tempting prospective buyers of the standard 10.1-inch iPad to upgrade for the “Pro-like” experiences. For basic “iPad things”, this iPad Air is an overkill and you could be content with the standard iPad, or even the iPad Mini. That doesn’t mean the iPad Air 5th Gen is useless. In my two weeks with this iPad, I enjoyed the finer experience of its immersive display, good speakers, great video call camera, slick performance, and a beautifully polished iPadOS experience. This is an iPad for iPad enthusiasts who want to keep an eye on the budget. If you just want a good iPad without the bells and whistles of the Pro models, I can't think of anything better than the iPad Air 5th Gen.

At this point, you might be thinking, “Right, why don’t get I just get the regular iPad then?” With prices starting at S$499, that’s certainly an enticing option if you want to save money. However, the regular iPad has a markedly less powerful processor (A13 Bionic), its design is quite dated, the display isn’t as nice, its speakers are only on one side, and it doesn’t work with the latest accessories. It really is a basic tablet and the iPad Air provides a much better experience. To put it in another way, I think people would regret more if they settled for a regular iPad when they could have gotten the iPad Air rather than spending the extra outright on an iPad Air. So yes, the new iPad Air is by no means an affordable tablet. But it makes a strong case for itself as being the best tablet for most people. The design and form factor can hardly be faulted, the display is great, and the performance is utterly peerless. Battery life could be better but that’s my only real complaint.

85% Apple iPad Air (2022) review: Puts Android tablets to shame
Source: India Today English
The iPad Air (2022) is one hell of a machine which puts mid-range Android tablets to shame. It is fluid, powerful and, at the asked price, comes out as a more exciting package than even the iPad Pro. There is a chance that a lot of users might not be able to make full use of the M1 chip but, even then, the iPad Air is a great investment because you are likely to use it for a good number of years without any performance-related issues. The only problem for me is 64GB storage on the base model. I don't think it will be enough on a device like this. But, if that's not an issue, then the iPad Air gives you an iPad Pro-like performance for less. That’s a sweet deal.

The iPad Air remains the sweet spot in Apple’s collection; it sports an industrial design that looks great and feels good in the hand, offers iPad Pro-level productivity with the inclusion of a desktop-level M1 chipset and full compatibility with the premium Magic Keyboard – something that can’t be said of any other non-Pro iPad. The Apple Pencil 2 support remains solid too, making for a capable tablet for students, gamers and even creatives that feel they won’t make use of the ProMotion display on offer from the (near-identical but more expensive) iPad Pro 11. There are also the added benefits of 5G connectivity and Apple’s Center Stage camera tech, bringing the iPad Air in line with the rest of Apple’s tablet collection.iPadOS 15 is another strong point, offering not only a large library of apps fully optimised for the 10.9in display but smart features like split-screen multitasking, dictation and even the ability to copy and paste text from within images, making for a capable tablet that’ll do practically anything you need without complaint.

90% Apple iPad Air (2022)
Source: PC Mag English
After years of reviewing iPads, my perspective on them changed this year when my teenager started using one as their primary school computer. If you have a focused workflow—like taking notes, filling out forms, and/or sketching—the iPad is a better option than a traditional laptop because it keeps you focused. iPadOS unlocks access to the tablet-optimized creativity apps you can't get on Android devices, including those within the Adobe Creative Suite. It's the best platform for single-task computing. If you primarily want a tablet for consuming content, the base model iPad is your best choice. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro remains a luxury option—unless it's the primary tool with which you make serious money, it's not necessary. The 2022 iPad Air gives you many of the same features of the iPad Pro, including an M1 processor and second-gen Apple Pencil support, for a much more attainable price. For everyday creators and students with a tablet-focused workflow, the iPad Air is your best option, and our Editors' Choice winner.

The iPad Air 2022 is an outstanding tablet and an excellent choice if you’re looking to upgrade an ageing device. It’s fast, looks stunning, and can do just about everything the even pricier iPad Pro can. But as an upgrade to an already fantastic tablet, it misses the mark in a few ways. Areas I’d hoped would be refreshed (screen tech, storage options and front camera placement) have remained the same, while features that were great already – notably performance – have received all the attention. Still, this remains my go-to recommendation for anyone looking for a tablet that’s for more than just casual web browsing and emails.

So, should you buy the iPad Air 5? To be fair – yeah, it is very hard to recommend the iPad Pro over it. You basically get all of the power of the Pro and access to the same accessories – the Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard. Still, if you are considering an iPad as your serious work machine, the big screen of the iPad Pro 12.9-inch definitely gives you more real estate to play with. But I feel the main comparisons will be drawn between the iPad Air (2022) and iPad Pro 11 (2021). They basically have the same specs, but the iPad Pro 11 has 120 Hz ProMotion display, and there are slightly different storage options. Let’s ponder that a bit – what storage options we have with the iPad Air 5 and which one you should probably go with.

80% Apple iPad Air 5 (2022) review: A superb tablet and laptop alternative
Source: Expert Reviews English
I’ve seen others wondering where the iPad Air 5 (2022) fits into the iPad range, especially since the iPad Pro 11in is so similar and more capable. I think, however, that it’s more appropriate to flip that question and ask what the point of the smaller iPad Pro is, now that the Air has inherited its M1 processor. If you don’t mind missing out on the Pro’s 120Hz display, its Face ID camera and its slightly superior audio system, the iPad Air delivers a very similar overall experience and performance for a lot less cash. Moreover, what you’re getting here is a laptop alternative that’s as powerful as a MacBook Air but one that costs as much as £300 less. The smaller screen and 64GB base storage might give you pause, but there’s no denying that 2022’s iPad Air packs in an awful lot in for your money.

The iPad Air has everything the last generation offered, but supplements this with future-focused 5G support, and a better chip. It’s a genuine improvement to Apple’s most versatile tablet and gives developers a platform to support even more demanding applications in future. Overall, it's an excellent tablet that reinforces the Air’s position as the reference standard that defines the mid-range expectation of what tablets can do.

The iPad Air 5 Is Peak Apple - Impressive And Frustrating
Source: Slashgear English
The fact that there's an Apple M1 inside this thing, the same chipset that's in the excellent MacBook Air and Mac mini, makes the limitations of iPadOS all the more frustrating. I can't help but think about how macOS runs so smoothly on Apple Silicon, and how it doesn't demand the same workflow adjustments I always have to go through when I try to switch wholesale from a Mac laptop to an iPad. I'm not saying macOS on the iPad Air would be completely smooth sailing. It's definitely designed with a keyboard and a mouse or trackpad in mind, after all. Thing is, though, I see an increasing number of people using their iPad with a keyboard too, especially since Apple's official Magic Keyboard for its tablets has gotten so good. The size means that yes, it's more cramped to type on than a MacBook keyboard, sure, but not by that much, and already I'm hitting a decent accuracy rate. I can't see it happening, of course. Apple benefits from there being separation between iPad and Mac, and has already shown its vision of cross-compatibility by virtue of being able to run iOS and iPadOS apps on macOS machines.

At this point, you might be thinking, “Right, why don’t get I just get the regular iPad then?” With prices starting at S$499, that’s certainly an enticing option if you want to save money. However, the regular iPad has a markedly less powerful processor (A13 Bionic), its design is quite dated, the display isn’t as nice, its speakers are only on one side, and it doesn’t work with the latest accessories. It really is a basic tablet and the iPad Air provides a much better experience. To put it in another way, I think people would regret more if they settled for a regular iPad when they could have gotten the iPad Air rather than spending the extra outright on an iPad Air. So yes, the new iPad Air is by no means an affordable tablet. But it makes a strong case for itself as being the best tablet for most people. The design and form factor can hardly be faulted, the display is great, and the performance is utterly peerless. Battery life could be better but that’s my only real complaint.

Apple iPad Air 5 (2022) Review: The best tablet option for just about everyone
Source: XDA Developers English
However, as is usual with Apple products, you will likely pay way more than the base retail price to get the full experience. The $599 model of the iPad Air 5 (2022) comes in just 64GB of storage, which is really low in 2022 standards. The next (and only) option up is 256GB, whose price jumps to $749. Then you may want a keyboard or Apple Pencil to take advantage of the awesome capabilities of the iPad Air. Adding both will run your cost closer to $1,000. There are third-party options for keyboards, but not the Apple Pencil. Despite that, I still think the iPad Air 5 (2022) is worth it. I have long said Apple’s best products — the one product that in my opinion deserves the hype — is the iPad Pro. This iPad Air, with M1, is basically giving you iPad Pro-level performance for less. And that’s an absolute win.

80% iPad Air (2022) review
Source: Techradar English
Two years ago, the iPad Air wowed us, and the 2022 model repeats the feat: it's an impressively versatile and capable tablet. The powerful new M1 chip is welcome, and the extra punch will be appreciated by digital artists and gamers especially, even if it doesn't offer a clear everyday benefit in the way improved battery life would. The iPad Air 2022 is also now dangerously close in price to the iPad Pro, which has seen discounts since its launch last year, and it’s harder to pin down the Air’s place in the iPad lineup as a result. But this is a great tablet for a spot of word processing, digital sketching, gaming, messaging and more. It’s all the things that make Apple’s iPad great, in a stylish design with some attractive color options.

95% 2022 M1 iPad Air review – a leap in speed and performance
Source: Tech Guru Daily English
It might not look it, but the latest iPad Air has had quite the update with new features, even faster performance and now 5G connectivity that make it the ideal companion to work, play and to enjoy your content. We see the iPad Air as “the middle iPad” because it offers a lot more power than the entry level iPad but is far more affordable than the iPad Pro. Since its upgrade last year, with the new all screen design, the iPad Air has a lot more in common now with the iPad Pro than the entry level iPad. And with the addition of Apple’s M1 processor, the iPad Air has gone from the middle iPad to an upper iPad that’s closer to the iPad Pro than ever before. Sure, it doesn’t have Face ID, a larger Liquid Retina XDR display and mini-LED backlight of the iPad Pro.

Apple iPad Air (2022) review
Source: Yugatech English
Apple's iPad Air is the best iPad for most people; it’s significantly better than the basic $329 iPad and is nearly identical to the 11-inch iPad Pro that costs $200 more than the Air. If you want a bigger or smaller screen, the iPad mini and 12.9-inch iPad Pro are still great options. But for anyone who wants a premium tablet that’s about as future proof as it gets, the iPad Air is the way to go.

88% iPad Air 2022 Review: M1 Is a Very, Very Nice Addition
Source: CNet English
Assuming the iPad won't take a leap into Mac-land, right now all the iPads are capable and useful, and all have been updated enough in 2021 or 2022 to feel good enough. I love how the iPad is a relatively lower-priced versatile computer in Apple's lineup, but it all depends on what you're looking to get out of it. I'd still recommend the basic iPad for a lot of people, but this iPad Air is a solid step up, and the one I'd probably want to buy the most. But keep in mind: The 64GB $599 model doesn't have enough storage. You'll need the 256GB model, which is $750. Apple's entry-level iPad, meanwhile, costs $329 for 64GB of storage and $479 for 256GB. You're paying nearly double the price for the entry-level Air. Is the extra $270 worth it for you? Maybe. Is it worth it to pay another $200 to get the entry-level 11-inch iPad Pro, which has 128GB of storage (more acceptable) and better cameras, 120Hz display, even better speakers, lidar and Face ID? Probably not. I wouldn't pay up for the Pro at this point… not until Apple finalizes its plans for that model later this year.

100% Apple iPad Air (2022) review: Great becomes greater
Source: Pocket Lint English
If you don't need the scale of the iPad Pro, but want something more exciting than the 9th Gen iPad, the 2022 iPad Air's addition of an M1 processor helps future-proof it when it comes to running those ever-increasing power-hungry apps. If you own the 2020 model then there's little upgrade appeal, but for everyone else this is a super iPad.

iPad Air 5 review roundup: Apple’s ‘go-to’ tablet gets even better

“The 2022 iPad Air is one of the best premium tablets you can buy, now with enough power to be as good at content creation as general-purpose browsing and TV-watching,” says The Guardian. “If you’re in the market for a new tablet, basically for any reason, the new iPad Air should be your go-to,” opines Popular Science.

90% Apple iPad Air (2022) review: Almost future-proof
Source: Engadget English
By now, you probably have the gist of this review: The new iPad Air is a modest upgrade over the previous generation. That’s true, but it’s also damning the Air with faint praise. To be clear, it’s an excellent tablet. It’s extremely fast, has a lovely screen, runs a massive ecosystem of quality apps and will be a capable device for years to come. If I sound unenthusiastic, it’s because this was always true. It was definitely time for Apple to update the iPad Air, but the company got so much right with the 2020 edition that this new device is a logical improvement to a formula that was already working. As such, anyone who bought the 2020 Air or one of the last few iPad Pros won’t find a ton new or different here. But compared to the 2019 Air, or any base-level iPad from the last few years, the new model is a massive upgrade. Overall, I think the iPad Air is the best iPad for most people: It’s significantly better than the basic $329 iPad and is nearly identical to the 11-inch iPad Pro that costs $200 more than the Air.

90% iPad Air (2022) review: So good I almost regret buying my iPad Pro
Source: Zdnet.com English
When it's all said and done, you're looking at $599 for the 64GB iPad Air, $129 for the Apple Pencil and $299 for the Magic Keyboard. That's $1,027 to buy everything you'd need to convert the iPad Air into a 2-in-1 device, with just 64GB of storage. For some that's sure to be enough space, but not for everyone. The base storage model should be 128GB, and it's unfortunate that's not the case. But, really, the base storage is my only gripe with this year's edition of the iPad Air. It's as powerful as the iPad Pro, but costs hundreds of dollars less -- even when you max out the storage -- with a display that's on par with the 11-inch iPad Pro. If you're in the market for an iPad, and the base model and iPad Mini aren't enough for you, the iPad Air is where your search should begin, and most likely, end. The more Apple pays attention to the iPad Air, the less the 11-inch iPad Pro makes sense to me.

100% Apple iPad Air 5th generation (2022) review: a top-quality package
Source: Stuff TV English
The new Air catches up where it needed to – Centre Stage; 5G – and blazes ahead with that unexpected M1. It’s powerful, smart, sleek and great to use. If your onboard storage needs are relatively low – with you streaming, having the system intelligently offload games, and saving files to the cloud – the 64GB model represents good value. Where things become more complicated is when you opt for 256GB. At that point, you’re 30 quid away from the 11in iPad Pro – albeit with half the storage. But the Pro nets you ProMotion, Thunderbolt, a LiDAR and four-speaker audio. At that point, we’d go Pro. At 64GB, though – or if you prize storage over all else and go for that 256GB model – the Air won’t disappoint. It’s a top-notch tablet, supported by an ecosystem that makes it highly versatile for an increasingly wide range of users.

100% Apple iPad Air (2022) review: the best affordable tablet you can buy
Source: T3 English
The new iPad Air is an F1 car disguised as a nice mid-range saloon. It's a practical, portable tablet with a great screen and speakers, hiding a processor that's capable of meeting even pro needs. Few people who buy the iPad Air will ever push the M1 hard, but it's not like Apple has raised the price here – it'll do all the basic jobs perfectly, and then if ever get more ambitious, you'll know it can handle it. It's a bit of a shame that the screen is still 60Hz, because certainly the processor can handle 120Hz, and it's a more pleasant experience even outside of using Apple Pencil. And it'd be nice to have stronger camera performance indoors. But I don't consider these dealbreakers – for the majority of people, this is the best tablet on the market.

90% iPad Air (2022) Review: Flying faster than ever
Source: Mobile Syrup English
When I take a few steps back, I think that there are actually two viable new iPad Air options available here. There’s the base 64GB model for people looking for an upgrade over their existing entry-level iPad. Then, beyond that, there is the 256GB model for people really looking to take the plunge and use an iPad as their main computer, but aren’t interested in shelling out the extra cash for a Pro. If you’re looking to upgrade your current iPad and usually spend some time reading and browsing the web, then the standard storage configuration will be enough. You’ll love this iPad’s more modern design compared to the Home button clad models like the 10.2-inch iPad. If you want to save a few bucks and don't care about speed or the modern hardware design, then the $429 standard iPad is still a great tablet. The other iPad Air here is for a completely different customer -- someone who’s looking for the larger 256GB model that’s aimed at creators. These people will likely buy an Apple Pencil or the Magic Keyboard and truly use this as a competitor to the MacBook Air.

iPad Air (2022) preview and first thoughts: the actual iPad Pro killer?
Source: Phone Arena English
Should you buy the iPad Air 5? To be fair — yeah, it is very hard to recommend the iPad Pro over it. You basically get all of the power of the Pro and access to the same accessories — the Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard. Still, if you are considering an iPad as your serious work machine, the big screen of the iPad Pro 12.9-inch definitely gives you more real estate to play with. But I feel the main comparisons will be drawn between the iPad Air (2022) and iPad Pro 11 (2021). They basically have the same specs, but the iPad Pro 11 has 120 Hz ProMotion display, and there are slightly different storage options.

Apple M1 8-Core GPU: Integrated graphics card offering 8 cores (depending on the model) designed by Apple and integrated in the Apple M1 SoC. According to Apple faster and more energy efficient as competing products (like the Tiger Lake Xe GPU).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


M1: System on a Chip (SoC) from Apple that integrates a processor (eight 64 Bit cores, 4 performance and 4 power saving cores) and a 8 core GPU (7 cores activated in the MacBook Air).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.90":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


Apple: Apple Inc. is an American multinational corporation which designs and manufactures consumer electronics and software products. Apple software includes the Mac OS X operating system but nowadays Macbooks are also able to run Windows. Apple has at least sporadically been considered the most valuable company in the world since 2011 and has consistently ranked among the Top 10 companies in the world.

In the laptop sector, Apple's market share was 9.3% in 2014 and 10.3% in 2016. The latter corresponds to the 5th place. In the smartphone segment, Apple achieved 15.3% in the first quarter of 2016, which means a market share loss when compared to the 18.3% in same quarter of the previous year.
Nevertheless, Apple ranked second place behind Samsung in both years.

There are tons of reviews on Apple laptops, smartphones and tablets. The ratings are significantly above-average (as of 2016).


88.27%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
