The iPad Air is the middle child of the iPad lineup. Often underrated, we give you 5 great reasons to go and purchase this device right now, whether it be for you or your family.
1: A Great Display
The iPad Air has a beautiful 10.5-inch retina display. Its screen is laminated, so using the iPad with a pen feels much smoother than on something like the 10.2 entry-level iPad. Apple decided to feature P3 wide color gamut into the iPad Air, which means that every color you’re seeing is as accurate as possible. Another nice point, the screen has Apple’s true tone technology, which adjusts the white balance based on the light around you, so that the screen looks as natural as possible whether you’re reading at night, during the day, or relaxing by the pool.
2: All-day battery life
Apple’s ‘Air’ devices are notorious for having excellent battery life. The iPad Air is no exception. Apple claims it will get up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge, which means you won’t have to worry about carrying a charger with you everywhere you go.
3: Extreme portability
Even with a brilliant 10.5-inch Retina display, the iPad Air remains extremely portable, at just one pound, so you can carry it virtually anywhere with you. Also, it’s a very thin device at only 6.1 mm thin, so portability won’t be an issue at all.
4: Very Powerful
The iPad Air features the A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine. It’s a very capable chip, beating out the vast majority of competitors far above its price class. You can design a 3D model, create stunning presentations, take notes, edit a video, and more. Also, the 4-core graphics engine inside the iPad Air delivers amazing performance, so you can play the most intensive games, or have some fun with AR, and the iPad Air will be able to keep up without a problem.
The iPad Air has support for Apple’s smart keyboard, along with the first-gen Apple Pencil. This is wonderful, as it can transform your iPad from a simple tablet to a full-fledged computer, which you can take notes in class, draw, write up emails with ease, and a whole lot more. It’s an amazing experience, and we recommend getting these two accessories if you can, as they’re sure to liven up your iPad experience.
