The $599 Apple iPad Air (2020) occupies a whole new pricing tier between the $329 10.2-inch iPad 9 (2021) and the $799 iPad Pro 2021 (11-inch). Here, you’ve got a mid-range iPad option for those who want Pro-level perks without paying up to a grand with the Magic Keyboard. But is it great enough to spend almost twice as much as you would on the normal iPad? I’d say so, as it’s my new favorite iPad.
