[edit] Features

  • New larger 10.9" screen with 1.44 aspect ratio (4.3:3)
  • A14 Bionic. What makes iPad Air faster than most PC laptops and then some. 5-nanometer process. 2022 has A15 Bionic chip.
  • Breakthrough 5‑nanometer process technology allows for many more transistors in the same space. The result is increased performance in nearly every area and even more power efficiency for up to 10 hours of battery life. 11.8 billion transistors
  • 6‑core CPU: The new six-core CPU with four high-efficiency cores and two high-performance cores gives you a huge jump in performance and is faster than most PC laptops. 40%faster than the previous generation with A14 Bionic chip compared to A12 Bionic chip
  • 4‑core GPU: A14 Bionic delivers blazing-fast graphics so you can render 3D objects or play an immersive high-frame game from anywhere. 2022 has A15 Bionic chip.
  • Apple‑designed next‑generation Neural Engine: The next-generation 16‑core Neural Engine can process 11 trillion operations per second, resulting in a 2x increase in machine learning performance. And machine learning accelerators deliver a 10x jump in computations, elevating machine learning applications to an entirely new level of performance.
  • It can use the Smart Keyboard Folio, or attach the Magic Keyboard for responsive typing and a built‑in trackpad as well as the Apple pencil.
  • Cost: from $599
