The all-new iPad Air. It's more versatile than ever. The stunning 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with wide color lets you see photos, videos, and games in vivid, true-to-life detail.¹ It features the A14 Bionic chip with Neural Engine, delivering power and advanced machine learning capabilities to edit a 4K video, create a beautiful presentation, design a 3D model, and do all of these things with ease. And now with support for Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil (2nd generation)², fast, easy, and secure Touch ID and Apple Pay, a 12MP back camera and 7MP FaceTime HD camera, USB-C connector for charging and accessories, all-day battery life³, and fast Wi-Fi 6. With iPad Air you have the power to bring your ideas to life.
The iPad Air is a fantastic table for reading, sketching, media consumption, etc. I use it for watching training videos (I'm a professional software engineer), for doing mock-ups and other types of drawing, and many other things. Definitely worth the purchase if you need a powerful tablet.
I bought this to replace my older iPad Air 2. The screen was broken, the power button didn’t work anymore, and the battery life was far shorter than it originally was.
This new iPad Air works just as good as any lab top. The new Touch ID Power button is much more better than any iPad. It is easy to take all of the information from your old iPad and put it on your new iPad.
I Got the one with 256GB with the Zagg Keyboard and the 2nd gen Apple Pencil not to brag.

As with any technology product I did some homework before this purchase. After my Nvidia Android Shield K1 Tablet died (it did last five years) I looked into alternatives. I finally caved in to the fact that the iPad is the tablet I should migrate to. The best performance/value at this time is the iPad Air. I even opted for the 256GB version since it really didn't bump the price up that much.
After using the iPad Air for the last month I do not regret the decision. I did pick up a Logitech Folio keyboard/case that protects the tablet and seems to work well.
I had the 2018 iPad and this is an amazing upgrade. I love not having a home button. Gives so much more screen space. I also love that they were still able to incorporate finger print sensor to the power button!
Blazing speed! 716 Mbps vs. 140 Mbps on old iPad on same home network! Love the split screen capability, using 2 Apps side by side! Seamless migration from old iPad using iCloud backup. AND... Best Buy did a price match, making this an even sweeter deal! Thanks, Best Buy!
I love taking handwritten notes on my Ipad. Perfect for postgraduate stuff. I carry all my notes, books, and calendar here.
Its light and perfect size (not too small or too big). Perfect to carry in my purse.

Apple iPad Air (2020) review: The iPad Pro for everyone else
The iPad Air is the perfect middle-ground tablet. It's vastly nicer and more capable than the base iPad, but more reasonably priced than the iPad Pro.Full Review
