The M1 is a desktop-class chip that also powers the company’s last year’s Macs and iPad Pros. So, if you need a snappy tablet that can fill in for a laptop but can do without the bells and whistles of the pricier iPad Pro, the 2022 iPad Air is totally worth considering.
The M1 chip is impressively fast, so the tablet is not only great for casual iPad stuff such as reading, content consumption, and playing games but also laptop-like tasks. Even the most demanding of tasks won’t slow it down and it’s also suitable for intense gaming.
The iPad Air also has a 12MP ultrawide camera and supports the Centre Stage feature which keeps subjects centered.
Apple also supports its devices for a long time, so the iPad Air will be good for another five years at least.
