Apple iPad Air (2019) Review

Score: 9.82/10

Apple iPad Air (2019) is a breath-taking tablet device released more than a year ago, having an enormous 10.5-inches screen, an extremely fast 2490 megahertz Octa-Core CPU, an 8 MP back facing camera and a 7 MP front camera. But it's time to get into more details.

Regarding its design, this device is majorly manufactured with Aluminum . Apple has made a very nice design job making the iPad Air (2019) as lightweight as 16.37 oz. This device is a very compact tablet device, taking into account that it has a 10.5" display and it is only 9.8 inches long and 6.8" wide. The iPad Air (2019) is just 0.24" thick, making its way into the thinnest tablets podium. This tablet is offerred in 3 different colors, gold, gray and silver.

Apple packed this tablet with a very good 10.5" display, and a 1668 x 2224 resolution, giving this portable tablet a nice graphical experience.

Apple decided to design this tablet using a high speed 2490 megahertz Octa-Core processor, packed into the Apple A12 Bionic APL1W81 system chip and a large 3 GB RAM memory. This tablet counts with a impressive 256 GB internal storage and even though it doesn't count with an SD memory card expansion slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of applications without even thinking about running out of space at all.

This device has wi-fi connectivity (but it can't provide it to other devices acting as a hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) , a really fast data connection and also HSPA+ data connection (a slower 4G network) and 3G fast internet connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This tablet has 2 Nano SIM cards so it can to use two different phone lines or carriers at the same time.

The iPad Air (2019) is equipped with two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 7 MP front-facing camera. It can also film 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 120 fps. In addition, the camera counts with time lapse video.

This device also includes a handful of useful characteristics as Fingerprint Reader, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Navigation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Barometer.

The iPad Air (2019) uses a great 8134 mAh Li - Ion non-removable battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it at all. An issue to consider is that this tablet's battery isn't replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to get older, although with its 8134 mAh you will probably discard this tablet before it becomes a real problem.

This tablet is being sold for about 779 dollars, a high price for comparing with other similar devices. No matter if you will use it to play lots of games, want a social tablet, are looking for a tablet device for work or are a photography fan, this tablet is probably a very good choice for you. Apple also sells the iPad Air (2019) with USB power adapter and Lightning to USB cable.
