iPad Air 2019 review: happy medium


Apple’s new iPad Air has almost all of the features people want from a iPad Pro — without paying Pro prices. Compared to the basic iPad, you get a better screen, a keyboard connector, and a much faster processor. But it still has a physical Touch ID home button for unlocking and a lightning port for charging.

    I love these conversational reviews, especially Dieter's. It feels incredibly casual and intimate without losing any informational value. Very well-written and put together and definitely a vibe I hope to incorporate into my own projects.

    I'd go for the IPad Mini instead of the Air, and I'd only use it for light browsing and mobile gaming, along with reading ebooks. Iphones in my book are a premium product and are too expensive and restrictive for my taste.

    Although I want the latest pro but price wise and for what I use the iPad for everyday the mini 5 is all round the iPad for me. And for most things other than burning cds the iPad basically replaced my ancient computer

    The only reason I got this iPad Air was because of jerryrigeverything video…
    Kept thinking the Pro might bend in my messenger bag…
    If it’s going to bend…. I rather have a cheaper one bending

    I had trouble deciding Air or Mini 5 but got the mini. Odd because I had the original mini and thought I should try a full size iPad, but I just like the Mini size. Very portable yet nicer than a phone for reading and long battery life. The Mini is a tablet for tablet-ly things, the Air with a keyboard would certainly be nice to replace most of what I do on a laptop. I wish I could afford both!

    Make a new product that does less than what it could do years ago…genius. Like if I sold you a new car with no air conditioning, because that is too high-end.
