Apple has just unveiled the new iPad Air 5th Gen with the M1 chip, which is up to twice as fast as the previous Apple iPad Air tablet computer model. There are numerous innovations with a brand new front camera, an integrated 5G modem, a faster USB-C port, and compatibility with the Magic Keyboard.
As expected, Apple unveiled the all-new iPad Air 5th Gen, which notably received an upgrade to the Apple M1. Compared to the previous model based on the Apple A14, the new iPad Air Apple model offers 60 percent faster processor performance and a graphics chip that is twice as fast.
According to Apple, there isn’t a single tablet on the market that can keep up with this performance, and even the most popular Windows laptop in the same price range shouldn’t be able to compete with the iPad Air. Elsewhere, too, the iPad Air is getting closer to the iPad Pro, as the tablet is compatible with the second-generation Apple Pencil, which attaches magnetically to the side of the tablet, allowing it to be charged.
There is also support for the Apple iPad Air keyboard case known as the Magic Keyboard. The USB-C port offers twice the bandwidth in the new model. A brand new 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle front camera not only promises better image quality but also supports Center Stage, a feature that intelligently selects the image section to always keep the user in the middle of the picture.
