Apple iPad Air (2019)

Description

As its name implies, the 2019 iPad Air is light and thin tablet for everyday use. However, it does pack a punch thanks to the Apple A12 chip inside it – the same found in the iPhone XS and XS Max. Among its key selling points are the support for the Apple Pencil (1st gen.) and for the Apple Smart Keyboard cover. The 10.5-inch display supports Wide Colors and Apple's True Tone technology but lacks the higher, 120Hz refresh rate of ProMotion. Face ID is also missing, but you do get Apple's Touch ID fingerprint reader for user authentication.

This device is also known as Apple iPad Air 3
