Engadget Review

iPad Air 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
