Aside from the new iPhone SE 3, Apple also announced the updated iPad Air 5 2022. The latest tablet now comes with the M1 chip, the same one from the iPad Pro models.

The M1 chip has an 8‑core CPU and 8‑core GPU. Apple says it performs 60% faster than the A14 Bionic from the previous generation iPad Air, and up to 2x faster than the best-selling windows laptop in the price range.

It has the same flat design with quad speakers and the same 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with 2360 x 1640 resolution, HDR support, and True Tone, P3 Wide color. It is also Fully Laminated, which means there’s a little gap between the glass and the screen panel.

Another big update of the new iPad Air is the front camera. It now has a 12MP ultra-wide shooter and supports Center Stage. Apple also updated the USB-C with up to 2x faster transfer speeds.
