Powerful. Colourful. Wonderful.

iPad Air does more than a computer in simpler, more magical ways. And now with more features and capabilities, it’s more versatile than ever.

Your creative studio on the go.

With A14 Bionic, you have the power to bring your ideas to life. Shoot a 4K video, then edit it right there on your iPad Air. Use the second‑generation Apple Pencil to paint and illustrate with dynamic brushes and subtle shading.1 And with the enhanced graphics and machine learning performance of A14 Bionic, you can unlock new creative possibilities with photo editing, music creation and more.

 

The notepad where your best ideas are born.

With Apple Pencil, you can easily take notes, organise your thoughts, and mark up screenshots, email and more. And with iPadOS 14, your handwriting becomes as powerful as typed text. Convert your sketches into perfect shapes, turn handwritten notes into typed text and write in any text field with Scribble.

 

Make working hard feel like hardly working.

With the incredible versatility of iPad Air, you can work any way you want. Use the Smart Keyboard Folio, or attach the Magic Keyboard for responsive typing and a built‑in trackpad. It’s perfect for the things you need to do, like sending an email. Or the things you want to do, like writing a short story. And with all‑day battery life, iPad Air is ready to work for as long as you need it.
