iPad Air 2022


Still the best Apple tablet

Great display ; Support for excellent accessories ; Seriously powerful internals ; Attractive design and array of colours

Annoying front camera placement ; No 128GB storage option ; Creaky body

Improvements haven’t been made in the areas I’d hoped for. Nevertheless, the iPad Air 2022 remains a superb tablet in a number of ways: it looks great, supports class-leading accessories, and comes packing top-notch performance.

Apple iPad Air (2022) review: the best affordable tablet you can buy


The iPad Air 5 delivers the power of a MacBook Pro in a stylish frame and with user-friendly software

Astounding M1 chip ; Great 10.9-inch screen ; Wealth of tablet-optimised apps ; Gorgeous design and colours ; 5G option

iPadOS can limit creative work ; 60Hz screen ; Middling camera ; Average battery life

The iPad Air (2022) gives you a great screen, ridiculous amounts of power, a cool and sleek design, and useful extra features. iPadOS is user friendly and packed with apps to take advantage of it, though is also still the thing that stops it reach its...

iPad Air (2022) review


A great, versatile tablet that struggles to establish an identity

Great design ; Speedy performance ; Incredibly versatile

Too close in cost to iPad Pro ; Battery life only average ; 64GB is too little storage for base model

Apple iPad Air (2022) review: Great becomes greater


We test the 5th Gen Apple iPad to see whether the Apple M1 processor and 5G connectivity make a major difference for the 2022 model...

Excellent performance thanks to Apple M1 processor ; Improved front-facing camera ; 2nd Gen Apple Pencil stylus support

Still no Face ID ; Storage limited to 256GB (and still no 128GB option) ; Rear camera isn't great ; Accessories are expensive

If you don't need the scale of the iPad Pro, but want something more exciting than the 9th Gen iPad, the 2022 iPad Air's addition of an M1 processor helps future-proof it when it comes to running those ever-increasing power-hungry apps. If you own the...

iPad Air 5 (2022) review


The iPad Air is the best iPad for most people - even those considering an iPad Pro 11.

Near-identical to iPad Pro 11 ; Incredible M1 performance ; iPadOS 15 is well polished

Display limited to 60Hz ; No Face ID ; Build quality issues with our sample

The iPad Air (2022) continues to be the sweet spot in Apple's tablet collection, offering more similarities to the premium iPad Pro 11 than ever without a dramatic price increase. It does practically everything you'll need from an iPad, and the M1 chip...

Apple iPad Air 5 (2022) review: A superb tablet and laptop alternative


The iPad Air (2022) is a wonderfully powerful and compact productivity tablet but a tad overpowered for media consumption

Fast performance ; Beautiful design ; Good battery life

Keyboard and stylus cost extra ; Overpowered for regular tablet tasks ; Base model has only 64GB storage

I’ve seen others wondering where the iPad Air 5 (2022) fits into the iPad range, especially since the iPad Pro 11in is so similar and more capable. I think, however, that it’s more appropriate to flip that question and ask what the point of the smaller...

Apple iPad Air (5th Gen) review: the best iPad for most people


Apple's latest 5th generation iPad Air packs the same M1 chip found in the Pro model and retains a sleek premium design. But is it worth a buy?

Fantastic 10.9-inch display ; Contains Apple’s M1 chip ; Design remains premium

No Face ID biometrics ; Yes, it’s still pretty expensive ; No 120Hz refresh rate

iPad Air (2022) vs iPad (2021)


The iPad Air has been updated to include the M1 processor. But does the price increase mean you'd be better off with a 10.2in iPad (2021) instead?

If you want crazy levels of performance, pretty colours, and a clean modern design that’s close the Pro models, then the Air lets you have that on a (relative) budget. For most people though, the price increase of the Air in recent years will make it a...

Apple iPad Air (2022) Review


Excellent performance ; Works with second-gen Apple Pencil ; Fits existing iPad cases and keyboards ; Light and easy to carry

Battery life could be longer ; No millimeter-wave 5G support

The 2022 iPad Air offers many of the benefits of the iPad Pro for hundreds of dollars less, making it the ideal tablet for creators.

Apple iPad Air 5 Review (2022): Tablet Sweet Spot - SlashGear


Apple has been trying to blur the line between tablet and laptop for years, and with the M1-equipped iPad Air 5, it may have succeeded in those endeavors.

Desktop-class performance in an affordable tablet ; 5G option is convenient ; Center Stage camera is useful for video calls ; Solid battery life

Version with more storage is expensive ; Price of accessories adds up quickly
