    This is my 4th iPad, my 2nd Air. I love the 13” screen and M2 processor! Plus, the 13 has twice the storage of my 10.9 4th generation. I addition, since I’m a BB Total member, I got a generous trade in and two years of Apple Care for free!

    The tablet is built with quality and the LTE / 5G is active without any issue, check out t-mobile’s offer for $10/ 5gb over 150days as a “placeholder” if you’re not interested in a long term data plan.

    If you can afford it buy it.. The color isn’t as purple as I thought it would be. Screen is huge compared to the 9th I had. Maybe I’ll buy the pencil to pair it with

    This new IPad Air is definitely a top tier tablet. With this new enlarged screen and powerful chip, I am basically using this as a computer. Although yeah IPad OS is not the most friendly OS for using it as an actual computer, Apple has so many apps that can act as an alternative for you to stay productive and not feel blocked- at least for what I use this for. Battery life is crazy good. It can last for multiple days for normal browsing. I played a round of wild rift and from a full battery only 8% was used. My surface pro 9 could never. LOL. Durability. Well I went from the very first iPad Pro to this. I think Apple has proven that they build their products to last. I never renewed yearly even if they release a new model, cus no need. Display on this is good. kinda sucks it’s only 60 FPS max on IPAD Air but that never bothers me.

    Apple products never disappoint. It is built to last. iPad Air M2 comes in with a very sleek look similar to the previous models- except this time it is now in a 13 inch. The only thing that bothered me is that when I got this. There is a small dented part by the camera. I returned it and immediately got a new one from Best Buy’s return policy. 60 fps, 2 speakers, Touch ID, never bothered me opposed to the IPad Pro version. These never stopped me from being productive. The only thing I wish is the thunderbolt capabilities. That would be epic for iPad Air as I am basically using this as a laptop and file transferring would be more convenient with the thunderbolt. The nicest thing is being able to just go from iPHone files to iPad and how iCloud sync works. I can just access everything on this IPAD!! Battery life on this is superb. My surface pro 9 could never. Durability is okay as it looks like it can easily bent. Display is nice and bright. Except the 60 fps but it’s cool. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone,

    I purchase this as upgrade to replace my mom iPad Air 3. She likes the size of 13” iPad Air 6, she love the size for watching videos. We end up returning and buying the 11” instead. Was someone who works all day with her hands and then has to hold iPad 13” that become heavy after few moments was not ideal for her. I have a 14” 2 in hp envy laptop and this iPad was only slightly lighter with no case and keyboard. It comes down to your device size and system preference. If your works with your hands all day or have arthritis in your hands I would NOT recommend 13”. This is not a device to be holding a long period of time just watching YouTube or Facebook scrolling or playing digital puzzles.

    I bought this the day it came out! I needed a good option as a second screen for work when traveling! This was the perfect iPad for that. The screen is only slightly smaller than my MacBook Air. But not having any wires connected makes it completely worth it! Of course I have other uses for it but this was the main one! No regrets at all!!

    I love my new IPad Air, it's fun to use for my job. I'm not very knowledgeable with today's tech. But I'm learning. I have not used the camera yet so I'm getting excited about that. I also love the new size I got. Hope to try and spend lot's of hours with my new IPad.

    I have an older 12.9 inch iPad that I use mostly for my music. I keep several thousand scores on the pad It is a little slow to flip pages and I cannot write (use Apple Pencil)with the older iPad. With this new one I can write notes when needed and it is a speed demon

    Looking for a bigger iPad without paying the big bucks for a "pro" model, and this fits the bill. Don't care for the on/off button on the side of the display. It makes it harder to use the fingerprint reader. I don't like having to use a six-number PIN instead of a four-number PIN, either. Otherwise, it does everything I want it to do, but I'm not asking for much, since I use it primarily for content consumption.

    Upgrade from mini 5 to 13” air. So far very pleased with purchase. I must admit it’s taking some time to adjust to new size and weight. But overall I’m glad I made the switch.
