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

Apple iPad Air (2019) review: The best balance of features and price?

 

The 2019 model is very similar to the previous generation Pro, but now with Pencil support. Does it make more sense than buying an iPad Pro?

Powerful and speedy performance ; Battery will last a full day ; Pro features like Pencil and Smart Keyboard support are great ; IPadOS improves the experience

Additional accessories aren't cheap ; TouchID over FaceID ; No Type-C port

The latest Air is much like the iPad Pro in all but name. So if you can live without the FaceID, uniform bezels and Type-C port offered by the current Pro, then this 10.5-inch iPad is a compelling offering. Especially considering its sub-£500 price point.

The best iPad in 2019 for most punters

Gorgeous screen

Should really have four speakers

The iPad Air offers a premium tablet experience for a lot less money than the Pro

iPad Air (2019) review

 

Apple's iPad Air has resurfaced, and while it doesn't look very exciting, it does have some horsepower underneath its dated hood.

Brilliant-looking laminated screen Cheapest Smart Keyboard iPad Fast charges via Lightning-to-USB-C

Uses the 1st Gen Apple Pencil Traditional design doesn't wow Two speakers instead of four

The new iPad Air (2019) has serious horsepower hidden behind its laminated screen and uses Apple’s excellent Smart Keyboard for proper 2-in-1 for productivity. Its traditional design and first-gen Apple Pencil compatibility make it look dated, but it...

iPad Air (2019) review

 

It's not quite an iPad Pro, but it's Apple's next-in-line 'Air' to the throne.

Colourful, laminated screen ; Smart Keyboard cover compatible ; Can fast charge via USB-C

Uses older Apple Pencil ; ProMotion video absent ; Two speakers, not four

The iPad Air has been resurrected to become Apple’s most balanced digital canvas, one that doesn’t compromises on performance, yet doesn’t push the boundaries of price. It’s a brilliantly sized tablet for drawing and photo editing, thanks to its bright...

Apple iPad Air (2019) tablet review

  (Rating Hidden)

It's an old name, but the iPad Air is a brand-new tablet with a screen that's larger than that on the standard iPad. But it's more than just a big screen; this tablet boasts a more up-to-date processor and high-end screen technology that Apple hopes...

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
