Apple has renewed the iPad Air, and has fulfilled what was expected. The incorporation of the most powerful processor that Apple has in mobile devices, the M1, and the maximum connection speed, 5G, are its novelties.
The heart of the new iPad Air is already the same as that of the iPad Pro: the almighty M1 that Apple uses in mobile devices and computers. A processor capable of performing the most complex tasks without the need for ventilation and with very contained energy consumption. The most demanding games, editing photos and videos or viewing multimedia content will not be the slightest problem for this iPad, which will have a very long life and can perform at the highest level.
The USB-C connection is also improved, now supporting data transfer speeds of up to 10Gb/s, which is great for using external drives and importing large photos and videos. 5G connectivity (optional) will allow you to work, play or enjoy multimedia content anywhere at maximum speed. They have also improved the front camera that now allows 4K video and is compatible with Center Stage, that function with which you will always be in the center of the image even if you move.
The rest of the specifications as well as the design remain intact. We continue with Touch ID as an identification system, the screen continues to be 10,9-inch Liquid Retina, and it is still compatible with the second generation Apple Pencil.
We can get it in several colors: space gray, star white, pink, purple and blue. The price of the iPad Air 2022 from 64GB WiFi is 679 euros, while the Wi-Fi + 5G start at 879 euros. Models 256GB are priced at €849 (Wi-Fi only) and €1010 (Wi-Fi + 5G). They can be booked from March 11, with direct purchase from March 18.
