    Apple finally made a 12.9 Air, and it is awesome!

    Went from the M2 12.9 iPad Pro to this one because my Apple Care ran out on the Pro, and I am so glad they finally made the Air in a 12.9" size, besides the touch button to sign on (instead of the Pro's face ID it uses), it is awesome! I just like a bigger screen, and that is the ONLY reason I spent the money on the Pro in the 1st place; the 12.9 Air is the one to get, save your money, and get the Air, you won't be sorry.

    I bought this open box. There were smudges from it being on display at a Best Buy location but it’s in great condition. The sound is better than I expected and I love the slim design.

    I tested this for 2 weeks and I could say was worth the money! Smooth in transition from one app to another. Audio is lit and the camera is definitely a good one!

    I’m a big fan of iPad Air, having owned each version since the 4th generation released. It is the perfect version of the iPad. The iPad Pro has a few nice features, such as Face ID, larger hard drives (the 4th gen only came with 64 or 256GB ssd versions), but the air always provided the best value. The new iPad Air 13 inch is a better iPad. The larger screen is my favorite upgrade. Having a writing space the size of a sheet of paper and a screen the size of a 13 inch MacBook makes the new air even better. Being able to use the new Apple Pencil pro and reuse the old keyboard seems like a compromise that I am fine with. The lower cost of the 13 inch Air maximizes the value. The colors are a bit washed out, but my blue stands out against the space gray and silver IPad pros.

    The Apple 13-inch iPad Air with the M2 chip has been a lifesaver for me as a re-entry college student. Its sleek design and powerful performance make it ideal for taking notes in class and creating detailed study notes. The crisp display and responsive Apple Pencil support enhance my productivity, making studying and organizing information effortless. The 256GB storage ensures I never run out of space, and the vibrant blue color adds a stylish touch. A must-have for any student!

    The 2024 ipad air is an awesome machine,full of vibrant color and speed. The 13 inch screen is great for watching movies and playing games. I recommend it highly to anyone seeking speed, color, and durability. Great choice over the ipad pro. It also gets the kids away from the game console played on the television,makes a great travel companion non road trips.

    The [ad itself is awesome but there is a problem with accessories. Bought a screen saver (Zagg). No one knew that it would cover the selfie camera and the mic. Can't talk to Ciri. Took forever to figure out what was going on. Apparently no one was making accessories to fit the 13 inch pads and that staff at Best Buy did not know either.

    The iPad Air 13 is awesome. I love the big screen as opposed to my previous smaller screens. Pictures are great to look at & I have the text on large because I’m older & I can really see it good. I would recommend this iPad.

    Was torn between keeping to the same 11-inch size but opted for the 13-inch, was glad I did as the extra screen space allows for some of the apps I use to fit properly unlike the 11-inch. The M2 processor feels snappy and battery life has been great so far!

    I am Droid person, but I had to buy a iPad because I'm an artist and only Apple has the procreate app. It is an amazing iPad to use with the Apple Pro Pencil for this purpose, absolutely love it! The battery life is just amazing as well, couldnt be happier with that!

    I got this for my daughter. So far it works great, does everything we want it to. Runs very smoothly, nothing has been a problem. It’s not heavy at all, it is really easy to grab and take anywhere with you. Recommend using this for college and taking notes as well as the Apple Pencil.

    Very happy to have purchased this iPad , it replaced my MacBook Pro and I’m very happy with this decision . If you’re not a heavy duty user , go for the iPad and the keyboard . Much more flexible and portable option.

    Walked in and was quickly asked if I needed help. Told the associate what I wanted. He checked the inventory, told me my options and quickly retrieved my choice and checked out my purchase applying my available discounts. No hassle, very knowledgeable and kind.

    I upgraded from the 4th generation iPad Air because I only had 64gb. So I jumped at the chance for a bigger screen and more space. I love my new iPad. I adjusted to the 13inch really quickly. Go ahead…go big or go home. Plus the new M2 chip makes it soooo fast. Love it.
