Last September, Apple launched a new version of the iPad Air onto the market. The device is a compromise between the iPad (8th generation) and the iPad Pro, finally following the latter’s design line.
This design premium with lower margins and the same processor as the iPhone 12, make this a very desirable product. And as our colleague from podcast Daniel Pinto says in his analysis of the equipment, this is the real opponent of the iPad Pro.
Apple has a winner on this iPad Air
I also recently purchased this same 4th generation iPad Air, which has been my lifesaver in the event of a malfunction of my MacBook. The performance is simply phenomenal for the type of device it is, and with the help of an old Magic Keyboard and a mouse, it is very usable for someone who spends the day writing articles, as is my case.
Working on an iPad Air? Yes, it is possible!
As Daniel says in the video, the user experience is done without any hiccups. But if you really want a 120Hz device, iPad Pro remains the device to buy.
Face ID is not on this device that comes with Touch ID. It is something I appreciate, although it is not in the most convenient place. Putting it over the volume buttons would be the best option, in my view.
You have in this two good columns, and support for the new Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil of 2nd generation. For those who want a good compromise on Apple tablets, this is the model to buy. Although it is a good resource solution, it still cannot be a full replacement for a computer.
