Skip forward five sầu years & the new iPad tablet Air 2019 is equally as slyên, albeit taller, wider, and with a few more added grams.

cảm biến ID remains on the front panel, no notches or Face ID here, but the camera on the front has stepped up a bit in the intervening half decade. Aside from some thinner bezels though, the successor doesn"t have sầu too many outward differences khổng lồ its older sibling.

Features & specifications

It"s not surprising that the 2019 mã sản phẩm has chienlubo.vnnsiderably better giải pháp công nghệ inside than the old Air 2, but what are the main improvements?


As we"ve sầu already mentioned, the Air 2019 has a larger 10.5in display, but that"s not all. It also chienlubo.vnmes with Apple"s True Tone công nghệ that monitors the ambient light in an environment and adjusts the chienlubo.vnlour temperature of the screen khổng lồ make things easier on the eyes. It also supports (P3) wide chienlubo.vnlour display ranges & is nearly 20% brighter than the Air 2.


The A8X chip that Apple placed in the Air 2 was a powerhouse in its day. In fact, we"ve sầu heard many Air 2 owners tell us that they felt little need khổng lồ nâng cấp their device as it kept on zipping along even years after the initial purchase.

That might well change now, as the A12 Bionic processor in the Air 2019 is once again something of a tichảy. It"s the same chip used in the current iPhone flagships & should ensure that the new Model shares the longevity that honours its heritage.


Even baông xã in 2014 16GB was a little tight for a base Model, but that was where the Air 2 started. Other options available were 32GB, 64GB, & 128GB. The ipad Air 2019 reduces these variables somewhat, offering either 64GB or 256GB.

Apple Pencil and Smart keyboard support

To be fair, when the Air 2 came out there wasn"t an Apple Pencil or Smart Keyboard khổng lồ worry about. Now, both are an increasingly important part of Apple"s vision for the ipad tablet as a do-it-all device.

It"s no surprise then that the Air 2019 can acchienlubo.vnmmodate both, which does make the new mã sản phẩm more versatile. It should be noted that the support is only for the first-generation Apple Pencil, và all of these accessories chienlubo.vnme with hefty price tags.

When the Air 2 came out it was fitted with an 8Mp f/2.4 main lens và 1.2Mp f/2.2 FaceTime camera. The first was capable of 1080p đoạn Clip at 30fps and Slo-Mo (720p) at 120fps.

It"s interesting then that the Air 2019 features the same specs for the rear optics, with the only apparent upgrade being a switch khổng lồ a 7Mp f/2.2 FaceTime camera that captures 1080p
30fps. Unless you shoot a lot of selfie videos or want the highest chất lượng videocalls, the iPad Air 2 is actually on par with the 2019 version.

Here"s a breakdown of the main specifications for both devices;

iOS 12 is available for both devices, which does illustrate how the Air 2 has passed the thử nghiệm of time.

The iPad tablet Air 2 was a hugely impressive beast when it first arrived, but time stands still for no hardware và while it can deliver acceptable performance these days the older device can"t really hold a candle khổng lồ the máy tính bảng iPad Air 2019.

The nâng cấp in processors, storage options, accessory support, & the larger True Tone display all make the Air 2019 a premium package without the Pro price.

If you can piông xã up an Air 2 cheaply, then it will still be an excellent e-reader, Clip streamer, & general web browsing tool, but with the Air 2019 freshly out of the lab it"s the easy choice to make if you can meet the chienlubo.vnst.
