The iPad Air 5 features a 10.9-inch liquid retina display with symmetrical bezel. It has a fingerprint sensor on the standby button on top and a USB-C port at the bottom, similar to iPad Air 4. The biggest upgrade for the 5th generation iPad is the brand new M1 chipset. The M1 SoC is going to give the iPad Air 5 a huge performance boost with its 8-core CPU and 7-core GPU. Apple claims that the CPU is 60% faster and the GPU is 2X faster than its predecessor.
The iPad Air 5 sports a 12MP ultra wide front-facing camera with a support for center stage. The center stage is Apple's new camera technology that keeps the subject of the video during video calls in the frame even if they move around. This helps in building a more dynamic experience. Apart from that, the iPad will also run on iPadOS15, which will give it multitasking capabilities, which it is sure to take on easily with the new M1 SoC.
On the connectivity, the iPad Air 5 supports 5G connectivity and will be available in both WiFi only as well as WiFi + cellular connectivity variants. The iPad Air 5 comes in the 64GB and 256GB storage variants. Also, unlike its predecessors, the iPad Air 5 will be available in an additional purple color apart from space grey, starlight, pink and blue finishes.
