It’s an extremely elegant tablet, that comes with all the excellent features that iPads have become known for over the last decade.

In iPad Air (2020) review, we declared it "one of the best tablets ever" and praised it for a whole load of things. In particular, its impeccable design, smooth functionality and speedy performance impressed us the most — we’re still not quite over the removal of the headphone jack though.
