2022 iPad Air packs a powerful M1 chip

Apple did not change much with the fifth-generation iPad Air when it announced the tablet in March 2022. The exterior design remains the same. So, you get a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina Display with slim bezels. The Touch ID/power button also remains the same, making authentication easy.

Internally, though, the 2022 iPad Air uses an M1 chip. This is the same SoC that powers Apple’s 2020 MacBook Air and 13-inch Pro models. With so much power under the hood, it is not surprising that the 2022 iPad Air is a performance beast. It can run the most demanding iOS apps and games without slowdowns or lag. This makes the tablet a perfect laptop replacement on the go, especially if you are heavily into graphic designing or photo editing.

Taking video calls is also a breeze, with the 12MP Ultra Wide front camera supporting Center Stage. So, never worry about being in the frame, as the camera does the hard work for you.

Save $149 on the M1 iPad Air

The M1 iPad Air sits right between the more expensive iPad Pro and the cheaper iPad 10 with its $599 price tag. That’s for the base variant with 64GB storage. With Amazon’s latest deal, you can get this model for $499.99, which delivers even more bang for the buck.

If you want more storage, the 256GB configuration with Wi-Fi is listed with a $99 discount. This means you can get it for $649.99, a fantastic deal. Amazon is also taking up to $149 off on the M1 iPad Air’s 5G model in various colors.
