New iPad Air (2020) review

The new iPad Air for 2020 borrows all the best design elements from the iPad Pro. It has a bigger screen, smaller bezels, and works with all the Pro accessories. It also has a wicked fast A14 Bionic processor and TouchID on the power button. It's the best iPad for most people, if you can afford the $599 price.

      @Kabita Patra I have that one as well. It was giving me problems so I updated to the air pad air 4. Still use my old one from time to time but do really enjoy using the air 4. The Touch ID on my new one is very fast and feels very natural. Someone watching me would assume I did not have any password at all.

    I don’t think that laptops are boring, especially not Apple laptops or Dell. Now I do agree that the iPad is just fun to use. I primarily use my iPad Air for personal use. I use a MBA as my main work device. This rotation of devices for me work, as I need a working desktop for work, and for personal I use need something to knock out emails, watch media, and edit photos. Great video as always.

    I watched your review after paying for iPad Air. And you confirmed that I made a great decision between iPad Air and iPad Pro.

    If anyone doesn't have an iPad, makes sense for him to recommend iPad air. But if someone already has a base iPad ($329), why will he go beyond and spend $200 more just coz of the bezel or 32GB memory. Since when 32GB memory is small enough for iPad. Other reviewers like Dave etc. explain 'iPad', this guy wants to sell iPad. There is a thin line between reviewing and selling, this apple-verge guy makes sure ppl buying base iPads are not elite enough.

    The only reason I would buy a tablet
    1. Watching videos
    2. Social media
    3. Some light photo editing for social media
    4. Playing casual games
    Probably the base model of an iPad Air is the optimal choice for me, considering iOS on a tablet is nice. Though I probably won't get one anyway since I don't have the luxury to just fork out $600 for just a device for the 4 points I point out.

    “The nicest computing experience you can have for $600 or less...”, plus the $299 keyboard, plus the pencil for $129, lets go ahead and call it $1100 as shown. Don’t get me wrong, I have it all too, but its not quite a $600 purchase. Very nice product all put together though, worth the money in my opinion.

    Listening to music can have a tremendously relaxing effect on our minds and bodies, especially slow, quiet classical music. This type of music can have a beneficial effect on our physiological functions, slowing the pulse and heart rate, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing the levels of stress hormones.::

    not so sure, iPad Pro 128GB is just about the same price as Air 256GB and you get all the bells and whistles including 120Hz display and better sound.

    In Europe you are looking at 667 Euro , make it 256Gb and it becomes 835 euro (974$) , so now you think wait a minute , Ipad pro 128 GB is only 857 euro (22 euro more than ipad air 256gb ) but you get :
    a) 120gz refresh rate
    b) 4 Stereo speakers
    c) 6GB RAM
    d) LIDER/Extra telephoto lense
    e) Smaller Bezel (1 inch extra screen state)
    f) Higher multi core performance
    Think Apple is just creating confusing price stratagy to make you seem you get a good deal (Same story with Iphone 12 and Iphone 12 pro)
