Apple has used its last key note to deliver its new iPad Air. This model retains the sleek and clean lines of the previous model, but offers a real gain in performance.

He was expected. One year later the heir to 2021 will not be found Very good iPad Air 4Apple is taking advantage of its latest announcement iPhone SE (2022) To offer the iPad Air 5 to the public.

From a stylistic point of view, the iPad Air 5 does not bring anything new compared to the previous model. The coatings look even sweeter and the tablet is now decorated with two new shades of purple and blue. Face ID is not yet listed here. Apple wants its Face Unlock solution on the iPad Pro.

On the screen, no change. We may have seen the Old appear or the Mini-LED appear, but this is not the case.

A lighter iPad Pro

Changes are found only within the product. In fact, Apple had a good idea to integrate the Apple M1 chip, which is an internal SoC on the MacBook Pro and Air, but the latest iPad Pro. However, these devices currently offer a real abuse of power. The CPU should offer 60% more performance compared to the older generation, while the GPU part guarantees to be twice as efficient.

In addition to its 5G connectivity, the iPad Air 5 is compatible with eSIM and wifi 6. Twice as fast as before, its USB-C port now supports 6K monitors. The tablet is still compatible with Apple Pencil 2 and Magic Keyboard.

This new iPad Air will be officially available for its WiFi version from € 699 on March 18th. For the WiFi + 5G variant you have to pay 869. The buyer will have a choice between 64 or 256 GB of storage. Pre-orders start March 11.
