I buy this iPad replacing my iPad 7 gen, Just something to surf the web and social media on and play the occasional game. The speakers on this thing are INCREDIBLE. So loud and full of depth, it’s great to stream music off of. Recommend this for the regular user, and with it’s new A14 Bionic processor, this thing can handle some serious multitasking for you. If you’re could not buy an iPad Pro, I recommend you consider this as an option instead, unless video editing is something you’re planning to do constantly. This iPad It has served me well so far.
I honestly wanted the newer mini to replace my old mini 2, as my intention was to use it only for light reading. However, this iPad has changed my entire classroom experience. Toggling back and fourth between my Mac and my iPad has never been easier, especially during study sessions and exams. The size is perfect, as it also fits in my book bag without feeling so cramped. It loads up pretty fast, but if you're looking to replace the iPad for a laptop. I personally wouldn't recommend it as I still use my laptop for the heavier workload.
It is super light. The 2nd Gen pencil works with no effort required. Suggest, get the pencil with it because it is a serious deign tool - when used with a drawing app like Becasso. Nice that the power outlet allows a USB3 key for storage purposes.
The screen resolution is better than the previous model. Really clear picture.
It's better than the model it replaces for me. (Three years old.)
A bit pricey - yes - but all in all for the next few Months at least, it's the coolest iPad for the money.
This was a replacement for a Gen 2 iPad Air I had, nothing wrong with it just wanted a newer one. The boxed edge styling is very nice and brings it into the new iPhone era. The unit is extremely fast, much better screen and the 4 speakers!! The sound from this iPad is absolutely unbelievable!!! And to me, getting rid of the home button and increasing the screen size and reducing the border around the screen is a huge plus. Very glad I bought this !!
My first tablet was an android type and I really liked it. But then I got this new iPad after having an iPhone for quite a while and it is night and day difference. Equality a picture plus download speed is way better and the size of the screen makes me not have to squint anymore I would recommend this iPad to anyone who has extra money to spend a fortune on it but it’s worth the money in the long-haul.
Love this IPad. It’s one of the best purchases I’ve made this year. And to add, buying it from Best Buy was a wise choice. They even price matched it to Amazon’s price as I was going to order it from them but, didn’t have to. The color I wanted wasn’t in stock but the salesman ordered it and it arrived on time! No complaints here!

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
A:AnsweriPadOS and the pre-installed applications take up about 10-12GB of iPad Air's storage. Some pre-installed apps can be uninstalled. The system storage will fluctuate depending on how you use the device and at times it may take up more than 12 GB of storage.
With a 64GB iPad Air, expect to get about 52GB of usable storage. With a 256GB iPad Air, expect to get about 244GB of usable storage.
