Introduced in September and formally released in October 2020, the iPad Air 4 is the latest tablet release from Apple. With a more modern design than the earlier generation, the iPad Air 4 features a similar design to the iPad pro, including a nearly edge-to-edge, 10.9” liquid retina LED display. The newest tablet from Apple also brings compatibility with features not seen on the previous generation of iPad Air, including compatibility with the new Magic Keyboard, the second-generation Apple Pencil, and USB-C. Let’s take a closer look at the new iPad Air 4.
Display and Design
As noted above, the iPad Air 4 boasts a 10.9” liquid retina LED display, similar to the one found in the current iPad Pro, however the display is capped at 60Hz, which is the same found in the previous generation of iPad Air. As far as the display, the 2360 x 1640 resolution absolutely delivers when it comes to the viewing experience. With the wide gamut of P3 color, the iPad Air 4 is able to offer better colors and contrast than the standard iPad. The display also features an anti-reflective coating, True Tone, and full lamination. The laminated display is especially stunning for those using the Apple Pencil, as the content appears closer to the screen. This simulates the feeling of writing on paper.
Also new to this generation of iPad Air, flat edges and slimmer bezels. This design was introduced in Apple’s 3rd generation of iPad Pro tablets, and it also being used on the iPhone 12. Paired with the nearly borderless screen, the iPad Air 4 feels like a modern tablet. Another bonus? Color options are available. The iPad Air 4 is available in silver, space gray, rose gold, green, and blue.
When compared to the regular iPad or even the previous generations of the iPad Air, the iPad Air 4 doesn’t do anything special that others can’t. However, moving to the A14 Bionic processor, the same chip found in the iPhone 12, the iPad Air 4 has a performance boost over the previous generation. According to Apple, this processor has double the graphics performance over the A12 processor, and is about 20% faster than the A13.
The iPad Air 4 features a 7-megapixel front-facing camera, perfect for those FaceTime calls in a time when we are relying on our tablets and phones to keep us connected to our friends, families, and coworkers. The new iPad Air 4 also boasts a 12MP camera that is capable of filming at 4K video. This is perfect for those who are film editors looking to do some work remotely, or students who are looking for a budget friendly tablet to learn the basics in the film editing industry.
With improved performance, better design, and a more beautiful display, the iPad Air 4 is worth a second look for those considering a tablet. It is a perfect fit for a mid-tier tablet between the regular iPad and the iPad Pro for those who are looking for performance, while still wanting to stay budget friendly.
