Expert review

After skipping a year, the Apple iPad Air had a long-awaited update in 2022. The 5th generation of the Air gets some tempting features, most notably the same M1 processor found in the iPad Pro, which should give it the power it needs to make an impact in a crowded iPad line-up. Price wise, it’s far cheaper than a Pro and only slightly more expensive than the Mini, so read our review to see where the Air falls in terms of quality.
