Review: iPad Air 2020 is a bundle of powerful joy
The all-new iPad Air is a beast. It has the power you need to get all but the highest-end tasks done. It’s Apple’s most adaptable system, capable of doing almost everything you need, and is the iPad to get this season.
The new iPad Air uses an A14X processor (Apple Silicon). It provides a 10.9-inch display and has a Touch ID sensor underneath the top and one of the side buttons. It carries a 12-megapixel rear camera. In contrast, the last generation iPad Air offered a 10.5-inch display, used an A12 Bionic chip, carried an 8-megapixel rear camera and had a familiar Touch ID Home button system.
The design marries more to the squarer design of earlier iPhones, but the tablet is light and durable with its 100% recycled aluminium frame. It has slim bezels, flat edges and is easy to hold, particularly as the tablet weighs just under a pound. That slight weight makes a real difference if you hold it for extensive periods.
