Apple iPad Air (2020) review: An iPad for all seasons

 

Apple's 2020 iPad Air is a leap forward over the previous generation - and it's all to do with the evolution of the iPad Pro.

Excellent performance ; USB-C forward-looking ; Touch ID button works well ; Trackpad support means true laptop replacement ; Variety of colours

Lack of Face ID can annoy ; No 128GB option ; Accessories expensive ; No rear camera flash

This iPad costs significantly less than the Pro model and, for many users, it offers significantly better value - although the price can quickly ramp up with accessories. The Air is powerful, desirable, fun and functional - it's an iPad for all seasons.

iPad Air (2020)

 

The iPad Air is a huge improvement on the 2019 variant, but it's also much more expensive.

Apple iPad Air 4 (2020) review: An iPad Pro in all but name

 

The new iPad Air is a powerful, portable and practical alternative to a traditional laptop

Nearly as fast as the iPad Pro ; Thin and light ; Decent camera

Accessories are expensive

Apple might not call this tablet an iPad Pro but the 4th-generation iPad Air is very much a tablet that deserves to be viewed in the same light, and mentioned in the same breath. It’s a brilliantly usable productivity tablet and a highly capable laptop...

iPad Air 4th generation (2020) review

 

A bit more pro and a lot more expensive. Is this iPad Air still the iPad for everyone?

Vastly improved design ; Almost unreasonably powerful ; USB-C for charging and accessories

Speaker set-up weird in portrait ; No ProMotion ; Limited storage options

Pointing to iPad’s future rather than its past, this is a meaningful, impressive iPad Air update

Apple iPad Air 2020 (4th Gen) tablet review

  (Rating Hidden)

Apple is asking you to pay a hefty premium over the standard iPad for the iPad Air's few extra features - a larger screen, lightweight design and faster processor are the main benefits. We've put all this and m...

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: 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
