Is the iPad Air 5 offer from Amazon worth it?
The iPad Air 5 or 2022 model is the first non-pro tablet from Apple that is equipped with the powerful M1 series chipset. This puts the iPad Air 5 on par with the more expensive 12.9- and 11-inch iPad Pro. It has an impressive battery life and USB-C port for faster data transfer to boot. Likewise, support for Magic keyboard and Apple's Pencil 2 is a big plus given the low price.

The upcoming iPadOS 16 software update should also benefit the iPad Air 5. Apple plans to add MacBook-like multitasking experience to select iPad tablets. The update will also bring a slew of new features such as a dedicated Weather app and Freeform collaboration tool.
