Apple iPad Air review (2019): Just right

 

The $499 iPad Air is a notable upgrade in almost every respect over the $329 iPad. It has a bigger, better screen, more storage and support for Apple's Smart Keyboard case. Unless you're on a tight budget, it's worth the extra cash and is probably the...

Excellent display ; Strong battery life ; Snappy performance ; Support for Apple’s Smart Keyboard

Uses the goofy old Apple Pencil ; A design that’s getting rather tired ; Only two speakers

Apple iPad Air (2019)

 

The new iPad Air is a tablet that works best with a keyboard case as a pseduo-laptop for anyone who wants a basic PC with Apple's software elegance.

Fast performance. Slim, light design. Nice display. Works with Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard case.

Camera could be better. There are a lot of other iPad choices right now.

Apple's iPad lineup has gotten pretty granular this year, but it's relatively clear to me who each of the models is for and why.

Apple iPad Air 2019 review: happy medium

 

A good step up from the basic iPad.

Fast processor ; Excellent screen ; Keyboard connector

First-gen Apple Pencil support only ; Speakers only on one side ; Touch ID isn’t as convenient as Face ID

With the iPad Air, most of the features that most people really want from a Pro machine become available without paying Pro prices. The iPad Air floats in the middle of the iPad lineup, and if you can afford it, you should get it over the basic iPad.

Magic Keyboard for iPad review

 

Is Apple's iPad keyboard worth it?

Attaches magnetically to iPad ; Pleasant typing experience ; Protects the iPad well

Weighs over 600g ; Angle not ideal for drawing

Apple's Magic Keyboard for iPad is a reliable and decent keyboard for your iPad Pro or iPad Air. Typing on it is comfortable and the case does a good job of protecting the iPad from any knocks. The viewing angle is decent for most purposes although...

iPad Air (2019) review

 

Is Apple's new iPad Air the best new tablet for creative professionals? We find out.

Colourful, laminated screen ; Smart Keyboard cover compatible ; Can fast charge via USB-C

Uses older Apple Pencil ; ProMotion video absent ; Two speakers, not four

The iPad Air has been resurrected to become Apple’s most balanced digital canvas, one that doesn’t compromises on performance, yet doesn’t push the boundaries of price. It’s a brilliantly sized tablet for drawing and photo editing, thanks to its bright...

iPad Air (2019) review: Apple finds the sweet spot

 

The sweet spot for most users is here, sandwiched between the basic budget iPad and the pricey iPad Pro.

Hundreds less than the iPad Pro ; A12 chip is blazing fast ; Fits existing iPad Pro 10.5-inch Smart Keyboard

No quad stereo speakers ; No Face ID ; No ProMotion display

Sandwiched neatly between the budget iPad and the pricey iPad Pro is the iPad Air, a strange set of tradeoffs and compromises that delivers most of what everyone wants from an iPad for hundreds less than an iPad Pro.
