The new iPad Air was released in March of 2019 alongside the 5th generation iPad mini. It features a 10.5-inch Retina display, A12 Bionic chip, Touch ID, support for the 1st generation Apple Pencil, and support for the Smart Keyboard. In addition to the A12 performance boost, it features a fully laminated True Tone display with 2224×1668 resolution.

In most ways, this device is a direct successor to the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which has been discontinued. It is offered in 64GB or 256GB storage options, and comes in gold, silver, and space gray finishes. However, it does not boast a ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate display or a quad speaker array, like the 10.5-inch iPad Pro had.

Pricing starts at $499 for the base model.

The new iPad Air 3 is the follow-up to a legendary tablet, the iPad Air 2. The second-generation iPad Air introduced a thinner profile, laminated digitizer, and Touch ID to Apple’s tablet lineup for the very first time. The iPad Air 2 was also well-regarded for its speed — sporting 2GB of RAM for the first time in any iOS device, and a new chip that put an emphasis on GPU performance.

When looking back at the iPad Air 2, it goes without saying that the third-generation model has some big shoes to fill. And as you’ll see from our iPad Air 3 review, it proves to be a worthy, if not a slightly boring follow-up, because it’s essentially an iPad Pro lite. expand full story
