    Taylor, staff member was excellent. I researched this and was questioning a couple of factors. He listened carefully and found the exact match. 256 was the memory I wanted. The iPad Air is fast, bright, and transfers easily from my 10 year old iPad. Well worth the price.

    I love my iPad Air 11-inch (M2). It’s flawless. I also purchased the Apple Pencil Pro which makes drawing, writing and editing so much smoother.

    So far it is great! I haven’t had it very long and am still trying to get used to the difference between this one and my old iPad. I’m not a techie so can’t speak to technical aspects. I really don’t know why Apple had to change the charging port so now I have to have a specific cord and the one that comes with it is short so had to order new cords!! Maybe I should have taken a star off for that!! All in all I think I’ll be happy with this.

    The Best Value Apple Tablet to Date.

    The newest generation iPad Air with the M2 chip is honestly more tablet than most people could ever need. The screen is fantastic, performance is off the charts, audio is great and build quality is excellent. I have used it with Lumafusion to edit 4k videos and it doesn’t hesitate. I’ve used it with the pencil pro to draw and it’s smooth and enjoyable. Battery life is excellent, too. It’s probably the best value proposition from Apple when it comes to tablets.

    Great replacement. Last device was a replacement under warranty that had many hidden flaws including poor battery performance damaged charging port slow processing. This device is new much better than anything Best Buy or Apple refurbished. Battery life much better. Some Aps needed to be reinstalled as they did not transfer over as well as other times. Wireless transfer at home easy DIY and needed to update software for 15 minutes before transfer

    I had an iPad Air 5 so this was not a huge upgrade for me. The screen and the new Apple Pencil Pro are definitely better. Speed? I am not sure I have noticed, the 5 was adequate. I use my ipad daily, From my calendar to banking to Quickbooks to notes at meetings. I always have it with me, so I recommend it to everyone. Its a beautiful tool.

    Just received my new and first iPad a few days ago and am quite enjoying the adventure of getting acquainted with it. At first I was disappointed that there was not an actual book of instructions in the delivery box but then I discovered a website with detailed instructions. Since I already have an iPhone, some of the basics are already familiar. So, when I have a question, I can just look it up. Soon the iPad and I will be very good friends.

    My father got sick and tired of carrying around a big smart phone and using it for everything. So i picked this Ipad out for him; Dad has dropped his cell service and went back to an inexpensive phone he can easly put in his pocket. When he is home or traveling, he can use the ipad. He is a happy camper! It goes to show ya, smart phone are over priced-esp is you have internet at home already.

    I’m an Apple person and love my IPad Air… I traded in a new 128 gb for a new 256 gb when the new ones came out… I kept thinking between the Air and pro and decided on air for price and what it can do that’s not too much different than the pro model…

    Fantastic ipad. Extremely capable BUT you wont notice much if any difference if you had the proor ipad Air with the M1 chip. If you only use an iPad for books and web surfing get the cheaper one. I use mine for video editing and thats why i go for the ones with Apples M series chips.

    My old iPad was no longer supported so I bought a new one. Best Buy had an equivalent model in stock locally so they got the sale. I don’t think current models vary much in price, so availability & convenience were top of mind. Back to work again.

    iPad Air M2 vs iPad 10th gen: core differencesThe iPad Air was recently updated with the crushing M2 chip inside. Meanwhile, the iPad 10th gen dropped in price, to $350. So... how do both of these compare?
