New iPad Air (2020) review

The new iPad Air for 2020 borrows all the best design elements from the iPad Pro. It has a bigger screen, smaller bezels, and works with all the Pro accessories. It also has a wicked fast A14 Bionic processor and TouchID on the power button. It's the best iPad for most people, if you can afford the $599 price.

    • No since my iPad air 3 still works but I will upgrade if it is slow or laggy doesn't catch up with software updates or anything that doesn't satisfy I will upgrade.

  • The only reason I would buy a tablet 1. Watching videos 2. Social media 3. Some light photo editing for social media 4. Playing casual games Probably the base model of an iPad Air is the optimal choice for me, considering iOS on a tablet is nice. Though I probably won't get one anyway since I don't have the luxury to just fork out $600 for just a device for the 4 points I point out.

  • I bought the 256GB version and it was 806 EURO. On a side note, is the pencil worth buying?

  • “The nicest computing experience you can have for $600 or less...”, plus the $299 keyboard, plus the pencil for $129, lets go ahead and call it $1100 as shown. Don’t get me wrong, I have it all too, but its not quite a $600 purchase. Very nice product all put together though, worth the money in my opinion.

  • Listening to music can have a tremendously relaxing effect on our minds and bodies, especially slow, quiet classical music. This type of music can have a beneficial effect on our physiological functions, slowing the pulse and heart rate, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing the levels of stress hormones.::

  • In Europe you are looking at 667 Euro , make it 256Gb and it becomes 835 euro (974$) , so now you think wait a minute , Ipad pro 128 GB is only 857 euro (22 euro more than ipad air 256gb ) but you get : a) 120gz refresh rate b) 4 Stereo speakers c) 6GB RAM d) LIDER/Extra telephoto lense e) Smaller Bezel (1 inch extra screen state) f) Higher multi core performance Think Apple is just creating confusing price stratagy to make you seem you get a good deal (Same story with Iphone 12 and Iphone 12 pro)
