After nearly 2-year neglect, Apple finally updated its iPad lineup with new devices, including the new iPad Air at its Let Loose event on May 7. The iPhone maker called it the ‘biggest’ iPad announcement since the device’s inception. Unlike the MacBooks that were released via a simple press release, the iPad Air was introduced in a live-streamed video by the company, giving a glimpse into its features, capabilities and price.

iPad Air features and specifications

The new iPad Air has been released in two screen sizes - 11-inch and 13-inch, both of which get familiar Apple features like Centre Stage. The camera has now been moved to the landscape edge, along with new landscape stereo speakers with spatial audio. What’s also new is the new Apple Silicon M2 chip. The iPhone maker claims it is a staggering 50% faster than the M1 iPad Air.
