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

iPad Air review

 

The iPad Air is incredibly thin and light, and it's the most comfortable 10-inch tablet we've used. It also comes with a nice boost in performance while maintaining good battery life.

A7 chip offers fast performance ; Thinner and lighter than before ; Global LTE support ; Long battery life

Touch ID not included ; Retina display is good, but no longer the best

Surprise: the iPad Air is the best iPad we've reviewed. In addition, though, it's also the most comfortable 10-inch tablet we've ever tested. Not every manufacturer can produce a thin and light device without also making it feel cheap or flimsy, but...

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

I initially had a lot of questions about what “Air” meant after Apple brought back the moniker for this iPad and the MacBook Air. But after using this iPad, I think I finally get it. This is what Air is supposed to mean now: the best all-around choice...

Smart Keyboard is a pricey add-on; No 2nd-Gen Apple Pencil support ; The iPad Air is a long-lasting 10.5-inch tablet with a gorgeous screen and speedy performance.

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.

Apple iPad Air (2019) review

 

This could be the best tablet in the whole iPad family

Excellent all-round video ; Solid, weighty audio ; Big, HDR-compatible screen

Awkward speaker placement ; Mini has higher pixel density

If you’re in the market for a tablet for movies and music on the go, there isn’t currently anything better out there

Apple iPad Air 2019 review: the top tablet for 90% of people

 

The last-gen iPad Pro is back with a new name, having lost a few features… and a few hundred pounds

More than enough power on offer ; 10.5-inch TrueTone screen is great for portable work ; Thin and light ; Excellent app ecosystem

Shame it’s last-gen Apple Pencil ; An OLED screen would be nice ; Speakers a bit measly
