DESIGN AND DISPLAY
The iPad air 2022 m1 features a liquid retina display with a Wide color display (P3), True Tone display, Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating, Fully laminated display, Antireflective coating, 1.8% reflectivity, and 500 nits brightness and it supports second-generation Apple Pencil.
As mentioned above, the Air looks almost identical to the previous versions. You get the camera and the Apple logo on the back. Volume key, magnetic connector, and the sim tray on one side. The selfie camera and the touch ID on one side, two speakers on top and bottom, and the USB connector.
Unexpectedly Apple has slapped in the same M1 processor as the Ipad pro. This processor is an 8-core CPU, 8-core graphics Apple Neural Engine. It has 8GB of RAM and it is by far the fastest device for the price limit. The famous M1 chipset really steps up the performance of the iPad.
So what has changed?
So much has changed but so little has changed. This generation of iPad seems more like the perfect segment to fulfill the iPad needs. The M1 chipset makes everything better but having 64 GB as the base variant with a direct jump to 256 GB with almost similar pricing to the iPad pro really does make things confusing but hey, you get the Centre Staged Camera and 5g support.
