iPad Air (2022) Display.
The iPad Air’s 10.9” screen cannot be compared to the 11-inch Pro’s display, but it is still comfortable enough for streaming movies. It does not dim when you’re using it for laptop-like work, with split screen and multitasking modes. We would strongly recommend going with the 12.9-inch Pro model, if you need to replace your laptop with an iPad.
iPad Air (2022) Audio and Camera.
iPad Air (2022) doesn’t have an advanced speaker system as the iPad Air Pro, with just two speakers instead of four. But the two speakers are on opposite sides of the tablet (left and right in landscape, top and bottom in portrait) they are able to provide an Audio experience that is clear, loud, and great.
Though the rear camera remains the same single 12 MP unit as before, the front camera has been upgraded to a 12 MP ultrawide unit, similar to the Studio Display, with support for Apple’s own Centre Stage feature that is designed to keep you in frame during video calls.
iPad Air (2022) Connectivity.
Apple didn’t overtake the Pro’s Thunderbolt 4 USB-C port to the Air this year, but it did upgrade the speed of the port to 10Gbps, twice as fast as the 2020 models so you can transfer files or plug in to an up to 6K external display. Sadly, Apple also didn’t add back a 3.5mm headphone jack; the only iPad in the lineup with that port at this point is the basic version.
