Why the Apple iPad Air 5 is popular
The Apple iPad Air 5 (review) is the first in its lineup to be fitted with a powerful Apple M1 chip. It makes the slab relatively as powerful as the more expensive iPad Pro but in a svelte and lightweight package. Multitasking is handled smoothly by the machine. Even better, gaming with graphics-intensive titles doesn't stress the processor and graphics at all.
The benefit of the chip extends to the battery life. It helps deliver phenomenal endurance that lasts multiple days between charges and in modest usage. This is valuable for binge-watching movies and TV shows as well as browsing for long periods. More importantly, the tablet can be charged quickly through its USB-C port.
At the front of the iPad Air 5 is a bright and crisp 10.9-inch Retina display. This supports the newer Apple Pencil 2nd generation for writing and drawing. When it comes to cameras, the 12 MP rear snapper can take sharp photos and 4K videos while the 12 MP ultrawide selfie can be handy in video calls due to compatibility with the Center Stage.
