Apple's upgraded fifth-generation iPad Air, sports key upgrades including an ultra-wide 12Mp front-facing camera with Apple’s AI-powered Center Stage technology, upgraded 5G connectivity and the same Apple M1 chip found not only in the latest iPad Air, but the likes of the 24in iMac and MacBook Air too.

In fact, Apple claims that the M1 in the new iPad Air represents a 60% boost to CPU performance and up to 2x the power in the GPU department compared to the A14 Bionic in the 2020 iPad Air.

Despite this, the new iPad Air starts at the same $599 in the US, and it’s actually £10 cheaper in the UK at £569.
