Apple introduced the latest iPad Air at the Apple Event on March 8, 2022. Apple dubbed the 5th generation iPad Air the “most powerful and versatile iPad ever” thanks to the Apple-designed M1 chip that provides superior performance. With M1, this makes it miles ahead of previous iPad Air variants. The device comes in five colors: Space Gray, Starlight, Pink, Purple, and Blue. It is a well-rounded device with competitive pricing—while having Apple’s most powerful chip.
Curious about whether the iPad Air is the device for you? Are you a student or a professional who needs a powerful portable device for work on the go? Or a content creator who produces breathtaking photos or videos online? Here at Power Mac Center, the Philippines’ premier Apple reseller, we have these iPad Air features–and more–that will convince you to get your own today.
Apple M1 Delivers
Apple brings the high-power M1 chip from the Mac to the iPad Air. We’ve seen what it can do with a MacBook or an iMac, but what about an iPad? The M1-powered iPad Air can run all of the demanding apps at the same time. It offers a huge leap in power efficiency, giving its battery life a significant boost to help the device run all day. With both the CPU and GPU running at 8 cores, faster performance and graphics rendering make the iPad Air a powerful device packed into a thinner package.
Better Cameras that Capture All
Tired of having to adjust your device to try and capture everyone with the Front Camera? The iPad Air now uses an Ultra Wide 12MP Front Camera with the Center Stage feature that tracks the current user and smoothly follows them around. The transition to a wider angle makes the device useful when the entire family needs to be within the frame in a video call or when friends all need to be in shot for a dance video.
Aside from the Ultra Wide 12MP Front Camera, the 12MP Wide Rear Camera of the iPad Air is for the photographer in you. Enjoy taking sharp and color-accurate photos and 4K videos, scanning documents clearly, and experiencing Augmented Reality (AR) like never before.
Gone are the days of slow and interrupted 3G and 4G browsing thanks to Apple including 5G support for the iPad Air. 5G is the latest in broadband cellular technology, a huge improvement over its predecessors with greater bandwidth, larger channels, and highly responsive thanks to its lower latencies.
The Philippines is slowly transitioning to 5G since 2020 as telecom networks slowly develop and launch their 5G-equipped cell sites. Last year, it was reported that 5G download speeds in the country are 10x faster than 4G.
With this, the iPad Air can now reach speeds of up to 3.5 Gbps with 5G, while eSIM and Wi-Fi 6 support also offer great flexibility. This device has you covered when you need a seamless internet connection—great for downloading heavy files, loading graphics-heavy websites, using apps that require a lot of bandwidth or streaming movies on Apple TV with your friends and family.
The iPad Air also has a USB-C port, which is a faster data transfer port compared to its previous generations. It boasts a faster transfer speed of 10Gbps for quickly moving high-quality photos and videos from the device to your computer or an external USB-C hard drive. The iPad Air can also support the use of other devices such as external displays or cameras, maximizing the USB-C port for productivity.
Taking Productivity to the Next Level with iPadOS 15
Make the most of the iPad Air with iPadOS 15. Since this device runs on the latest Apple M1 chip, it’s perfect for those working with multiple apps at the same time.
Multitasking is now seamlessly integrated with the new Split View and Slide Over features. Notes are now system-wide thanks to Quick Note — now you can jot down notes while another app is open.
Want to share experiences between family and friends during a FaceTime call? Now it’s possible with SharePlay.
