2022 iPad Air 5 is one of Apple’s best tablets

There are so many reasons to love the iPad. It’s easily the best tablet on the market, and is well suited for leaning back to watch video or leaning forward to write a report. As a mid-range model, the new iPad Air 5 has some high-end features, like a big screen and speedy processor, but at a price lower than top-tier computers.

The 2022 Air has the same formfactor as the 2020 one, sticking with the 10.9-inch display, thin bezels and USB-C port. But Apple upped its game by putting in an M1 chip, the same powerful processor used in the MacBook Air. And the 2021 iPad Pro also has an M1, so the new iPad Air offers the same performance as the more-expensive models.

The fifth-generation iPad Air added other bells-and-whistles too, like 8GB of RAM. And it sports a 12MP ultra-wide front camera with Apple’s fantastic Center Stage feature.

In fact, Apple’s newest tablet is good enough that it might be a better option than the 11-inch iPad Pro for many buyers.
