How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Review

The iPad Air is incredibly thin and light, and it's the most comfortable 10-inch tablet we've used. It also comes with a nice boost in performance while maintaining good battery life.

Pros
  • A7 chip offers fast performance
  • Thinner and lighter than before
  • Global LTE support
  • Long battery life
Cons
  • Touch ID not included
  • Retina display is good, but no longer the best
