iPad Air brings more of our most powerful technologies to
more people than ever. The A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine.
A 10.5‑inch Retina display with True Tone. Support for Apple Pencil
and the Smart Keyboard. And at less than 500 grams and 6.1 millimetres thin, carrying all that power is effortless.
iPad Air features a large 10.5‑inch Retina display, while remaining extremely portable and perfect for getting things done anywhere. It’s thin and light, and features advanced wireless connectivity. And with up to 10 hours of battery life, iPad Air can go all day on a single charge.
With Wi‑Fi speeds up to 866 Mbps and Gigabit‑class LTE, iPad Air keeps you connected wirelessly and effortlessly.2And with eSIM, you can easily access mobile data plans from your iPad Air all over the world.
The A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine enables a whole new level of power and intelligence. It uses real‑time machine learning to transform the way you experience photos, gaming, augmented reality and more. With all this power, you can edit a video. Create a beautiful presentation. Design a 3D model. Stream your favourite show. Or do all of those things at once.
A four‑core graphics engine in the A12 Bionic chip delivers amazing performance for incredible augmented reality experiences, photorealistic effects in 3D games and stunning graphics within apps.
The immersive 10.5‑inch Retina display with wide colour lets you see photos, videos and games in vivid, true‑to‑life detail. And no matter where you take iPad Air, True Tone, high brightness and an antireflective coating give you the best viewing experience.
True Tone dynamically adjusts white balance based on the light around you. So images look natural and are easier on your eyes whether you’re reading a book in bed or surfing the web poolside.
The front and back cameras on iPad Air let you take stunning photos and 1080p HD videos. But you can also do much more. Make a Group FaceTime call. Scan a document, sign it and send it back. Or create new worlds by using the camera for augmented reality experiences.
Augmented reality combines digital objects and information with the real world to create entirely new experiences. iPad is the perfect device for truly immersive AR — with front and back cameras; the A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine; a large, vivid display; and sensors for motion tracking.
Apple Pencil features the precision, responsiveness and natural fluidity of a traditional writing instrument, and the versatility to become so much more. With Apple Pencil, you can turn iPad Air into your notepad, canvas or just about anything else you can imagine.
Take notes and jot down ideas as naturally as you do on paper. You can even search your handwritten notes and convert them to text. You can also mark up documents, add drawings to notes, or snap and annotate a screenshot.
The Smart Keyboard lets you write a research report or create a presentation on a full-sized keyboard whenever you need one.4 It connects easily without the need for pairing or charging, so it’s always ready to go. And when you’re done, it folds to create a slim, lightweight cover.
Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard sold separately.
