Apple iPad Air (2020) review: The iPad Pro for everyone else

 

The iPad Air is the perfect middle-ground tablet. It's vastly nicer and more capable than the base iPad, but more reasonably priced than the iPad Pro.

Excellent hardware design ; Strong battery life and USB-C ; Wonderful display ; Pro-level performance ; Magic Keyboard support ; Fast fingerprint sensor

Base 64GB of storage ; Expensive upsell to 256GB

Apple iPad Air (2020) Review

 

Super-fast processor and internet speeds ; Excellent cameras ; Fantastic build quality

Unimpressive battery life ; iPadOS still doesn't multitask as well as Mac/Windows

The fourth-generation iPad Air gives you the power of an iPad Pro for less money, making it the best Apple tablet to buy in 2020.

Apple iPad Air (2020) review: take it from the Pro

 

It costs a little more this year, but if you're going to keep it for five years, it's the one to get.

Excellent screen ; Compatible with iPad Pro accessories ; Very fast processor

Price increase ; Only step-up storage option is a big jump, $749 for 256GB ; Touch ID on the power button takes some getting used to

The new 2020 iPad Air has the same design as the 11-inch iPad Pro and therefore feels just as nice to use. It also has the very fast A14 Bionic chip, which we are expecting to also be used in upcoming Mac laptops.

Apple iPad Air (2020) review: This is the one to buy

 

The iPad Air (2020) is the best tablet for most people

Sleek design with thin bezels ; A14 Bionic chip delivers excellent performance ; Good battery life ; Loud, clear speakers ; Support for Apple Pencil 2 and Magic Keyboard but...

Accessories are expensive add-ons ; No Face ID or headphone jack ; 64GB base storage ; Display could be brighter, more vivid

The best tablet for most people, the redesigned iPad Air has a modern chassis, fast performance and long battery life — plus, it supports Apple's best accessories.

Apple iPad Air (2020) Review – Marvel in the Middle

 

I've been using the new iPad Air (2020) for the past few weeks, throwing everything from writing and emailing to media editing at Apple's midrange tablet, and I'm struggling to fi…

iPad Pro design but far more affordable ; Screen is excellent ; Apple A14 Bionic processor is fast and future-proofed ; Touch ID is slickly integrated

Cellular and higher storage upgrades are expensive ; iPadOS still has some multi-tasking foibles

Apple iPad Air (2020) Review

 

The 2020 iPad Air has the design and power of the iPad Pro, while keeping the cost lower by removing bells and whistles most users don't need.

Gorgeous design; Magic Keyboard and 2nd-gen Apple Pencil support; Superb stereo speakers; USB Type-C, meaning better support for third-party accessories

Expensive first-party accessories

iPad Air (2020) review: A tablet designed for work and play Review | ZDNet

 

Apple's latest tablet answers some lingering questions while also giving users a valid option for power and affordability.

Powerful performance ; Solid battery life ; Great display ; USB-C ; Overall design

64GB isn't enough base storage ; The Magic Keyboard is still pricey

Our iPad Air (2020) review shows how Apple has made one of the best tablets ever, thanks to its A14 Bionic speed and Magic Keyboard support.

Overall, this iPad Air 4 review has shown why it's the best iPad out there, thanks to taking most of the iPad Pro features people will really appreciate, and making them available to a wider audience.

iPad Air (2020) review

 

The iPad Air (2020) means Apple's best iPad is now even better.

Incredible new design ; All-screen display ; Fast performance ; All-day battery – still!

This is the iPad for the rest of us – it's fast, powerful and remarkably fully featured. It feels like the future.

Apple iPad Air (2020) Review

 

When the original iPad Air was introduced back in 2013, it was a way to get the iPad experience but in a thinner form factor. Now since then, the iPad Air has become more of an iPad Pro Lite, meaning it has almost all the features of the main Pro model...

iPad Pro features in a more affordable package ; Great looking screen ; Slim design with thin bezels ; A14 Bionic offers fast performance ; Good battery life ; USB-C makes it more versatile ; Apple Pencil (2nd Gen) works great

Limited storage options (64GB and 256GB) ; Can get pricey with accessories ; No high refresh screen

The new iPad Air is a great device that is quick, supports the latest Apple Pencil, has USB-C and gives the same functionality as the iPad Pro just at a lower price.
