Apple has announced a new iteration of the iPad Air. The new and even more amazing iPad Air 5 comes with the same design as its previous version, but with a huge upgrade on the inside.

It seems that the rumors turned out to be true. The new iPad Air 5 comes packed with Apple’s M1 chip. This means that you will get tons of power and other great upgrades inside this thin and light design. The new iPad Air’s M1 processor features an 8-core CPU that is 60 percent faster than the A14 Bionic, and its GPU is two times faster than the one found in the base model of the MacBook Air. Not only that, but we also get a 16-core Neural Engine and 5G support.

Apple’s M1 chip will also allow users to create and do more with the iPad Air gen 5, as it will enable them to use Procreate to create social media filters play graphics-intensive games. The best part is that it comes with an all-day battery to keep your creativity flowing.

The new iPad Air also features a new 12MP Ultra-Wide Camera that now supports Center Stage, which means that you will always be in the center of the show while making video calls. It also features a 2 times faster USB-C port. In addition, it supports the Smart Keyboard Folio, the Magic Keyboard, and the second-generation Apple Pencil to make it even more productive. Further, the new iPad Air will get more features thanks to enhanced multitasking functionality which comes as part of iPadOS.

However, some things will seem very familiar, as we will receive the same 10.9-inch Liquid retina Display, True Tone, P3 wide color, and anti-reflective coating. Touch ID is still present and built into the top button to unlock your new iPad. Stereo speakers are also part of the package, but you will have to use your iPad Air in landscape mode to take advantage of this feature.

The iPad Air 5 comes in five different color options, including Space Gray, Starlight, Pink Purple, and a new Blue variant. The best part is that it is still available for just $599, and you can pre-order yours starting on Friday, March 18. Unfortunately, we don’t get a storage boost, as it also comes with the same 64GB storage space as its predecessor, but you can also opt for the 256GB storage option.
