5th gen iPad Air is still using the same display as its predecessor so that’s 10.9” Liquid Retina IPS LCD panel with 500 nits of peak brightness, True Tone, P3 wide color gamut, and anti-reflective screen coating to name a few. Thus, there’s no mini LED or OLED as of now.

It promises 10 hours of movies and web browsing on Wi-Fi although the M1 chipset should be able to refine the performance by a ton. There’s iOS 15.3 onboard as usual. The tab is compatible with Apple Pencil, Magic Keyboard, a Smart Folio cover, and Smart Keyboard Folio as well.
