User Reviews 1 User Reviews The Air performed excellently as a tablet with fluid and fast processing for apps and games. I enjoyed the high quality laminated screen. Battery life also impressed with no issues. The older origami keyboard design lets you position the iPad in any orientation, though opening it can be awkward. But for most people wanting an affordable iPad with helpful "pro" features like a keyboard, the Air hits the sweet spot between price, design and performance.

User Reviews 2 In testing, I enjoyed the A12 chip's excellent performance for games, photo editing, and multitasking. Battery life also impresses at 10 hours. The screen looks great with True Tone and wide color. However, the two bottom speakers are a downgrade from the older Pro. The lack of ProMotion makes scrolling less smooth. And the 1st gen Apple Pencil charges awkwardly compared to the new model.

User Reviews 3 I found the iPad Air borrows the same design as the 2017 10.5-inch iPad Pro. While not futuristic, it gets most things right. The laminated display with True Tone and wide color is a major upgrade over the basic iPad. The A12 chip ensures smooth performance for years. Battery life is excellent at over 11 hours.
Compromises versus the Pro include only two bottom speakers instead of four. The 8MP camera is decent but most will use their phone.

The iPad Air (3rd generation) has emerged as a compelling choice, finding a sweet spot between the regular iPad and the more advanced iPad Pro models.

Drawing inspiration from its predecessors, it retains familiar features such as the physical home button, noticeable screen bezels, and compatibility with the same keyboard.

Positioned as an affordable alternative with a performance boost, the iPad Air caters to a broad audience seeking an ideal balance between price, design, and functionality.

Familiar Design with a Modern Twist

One notable aspect is its hardware, which borrows elements from older iPad Pro models. Despite featuring the classic physical home button and retaining large screen bezels, the iPad Air impressively aligns itself with the more premium iPad Pro series.

The inclusion of a keyboard connector and enhanced front camera sets it apart from the basic iPad, offering users a faster processor, a True Tone display.

Impressive Performance in Practical Use

In practical use, the iPad Air excels as a tablet, delivering a seamless and rapid performance for applications and games. The laminated screen, known for its high quality, enhances the overall user experience.

Battery life stands out, demonstrating no notable issues during testing. The origami keyboard design, inherited from earlier models, provides flexible positioning options, even though its initial opening might pose some challenges.

For users seeking an affordable iPad with professional features like a keyboard, the iPad Air presents an attractive option, combining a reasonable price point with commendable design and performance.

Strategic Hardware Choices

The iPad Air retains the Lightning port and Touch ID, opting against the USB-C and Face ID choices found in the iPad Pro.

While this decision brings certain compromises, such as a lower resolution screen without ProMotion and an 8MP main camera lacking optical image stabilization, it helps maintain a competitive price point.

Powerful A12 Chip and Notable Features

The A12 chip in the iPad Air delivers outstanding performance, excelling in tasks like gaming, photo editing, and multitasking.

The battery life, reaching up to 10 hours, complements the overall positive experience. The display, featuring True Tone and wide color, contributes to a visually appealing interface.

However, some drawbacks include the reduced number of speakers and the absence of ProMotion, resulting in less smooth scrolling. The 1st generation Apple Pencil, while functional, charges in a less convenient manner compared to the newer model.

Balancing Affordability and Performance

The iPad Air offers a swift tablet experience with an impressive display and support for the Apple Pencil.

The Smart Keyboard enhances productivity, making the iPad Air a recommended alternative for mainstream users.

While creative professionals and power users might find additional benefits in the iPad Pro, the iPad Air strikes an optimal balance of features and affordability for a broader audience.

In conclusion, the iPad Air stands out as a versatile and well-rounded tablet, combining key elements from both the basic iPad and the more advanced iPad Pro.

Its competitive pricing, robust performance, and commendable features make it a compelling choice for users seeking a capable and budget-friendly iPad.
