Apple iPad Air 2022 review – “The device is too cool for school”

The new 2022 iPad Air is, as the saying goes, too cool for school. Apple has taken the 2020 model and upgraded it with newer parts, but without upsetting the price, resulting in a powerful yet reasonably priced tablet.

Storage

With 64 gigabytes of storage, it is possible to upgrade to 256 gigabytes, but this comes at a significantly higher cost.

Camera, audio and speed

The device has a selfie camera that is centered when the tablet is held vertically, in portrait mode. The camera is an updated 12-megapixel sensor with a 122-degree field of view and supports Apple’s Core Storage and Subject Tracking.

The camera app lets you record in normal and super wide-angle modes, perfect for bringing the whole family in for a FaceTime or group meeting.

Dual speakers are clearer than the previous single speaker.

Externally, it may look identical, but the new model has done away with the A14 Bionic processor in favor of Apple’s super-fast M1 chip.

Accessories

The iPad Air comes with a 20-watt power supply and USB C-to-C cable along with the usual documentation and Apple logo stickers.

In terms of using it as a laptop, which has become a popular option with the Magic Keyboard lately. iPadOS cannot replace a true desktop operating system simply because file management is difficult, multitasking is no fun, and web browsing on the desktop is impossible.

The previous generation iPad Air is even more capable of everything the majority of users would want to do on a tablet, so for most people this generation device isn’t that essential of an upgrade.

Battery

Battery life is as good as ever. Apple claims the new iPad Air’s battery is good for 10 hours of web browsing over Wi-Fi. Obviously more heavy use will drain more battery, but overall it’s still pretty decent.

design and color

Like all of its predecessors, the model is slim and square with rounded corners.

The tablet is available in five colors; dark or light gray, pink, purple and blue. The iPad Air also supports the second generation Apple Pencil while the base iPad only works with the first generation model.

The second-generation Pencil charges automatically when you magnetically clip it onto the top of the iPad, has a matte material that’s more pleasant to the touch, and a flat side that prevents it from rolling away.
