iPad Air 5 vs iPad Pro 2022: Will This Year Go Pro?

You might think that the dilemma of the iPad Air 5 and iPad Pro 2022 isn’t much of a dilemma. After all, the new iPad Pro (2022), launched alongside the new iPad 10.9 (2022), brings top-notch laptop performance to the tablet format. However, the iPad Air (2022), which is Apple’s other large tablet launch following the beginning of the year, is also not formidable. Regarding price and feature set. How about now with the newer and fresher Pro models out?

Ah, iPad Air 5 vs iPad Pro 2022 Design The new iPad Pro looks a lot like the old one (Image credit: Future) The iPad Pro 2022 and iPad Air 5 actually boast very similar designs. Both have flat surfaces, sharp all-aluminum bodies, and even display bezels. In terms of size, the iPad Air 5 is again very similar to the 11-inch iPad Pro 2022. The cheaper tablet measures 247.6 x 178.5 x 6.1mm, and the 11-inch Pro measures 247.6 x 178.5 x 5.9mm. It’s the same except for a 0.2mm difference in thickness in favor of the Pro. The iPad Air 5 is partly lighter than its Pro sibling, but hands down as we’re talking 461g vs 466g. Of course, there’s also the 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2022, measuring 280.6 x 214.9 x 6.4mm and weighing 682g, making it a lot better than the two above. It’s big, all three of these tablets are throwing away Apple’s creaky old Lightning connector. The Pro models use the faster Thunderbolt 4 standard, but prefer the universal USB-C port. Also, the differences in biometric authentication systems are not easily visible. While the iPad Air 5 hides the Touch ID sensor behind the power button, the iPad Pro 2022 has Apple’s great Face ID system, which uses a front-facing camera and sensor. One way the iPad Air 5 strikes back is its color choices. The more affordable tablets come in an impressive selection of space gray, starlight, pink, purple and blue. The iPad Pro 2022, on the other hand, only comes in silver and space gray. iPad Air 5 vs iPad Pro 2022 DisplayiPad Air 2022 (Image Credit: TechRadar)The iPad Air 5 and the smaller iPad Pro 2022 have similar displays, but they are not identical. For the Air, we’re looking at 10.9 inches and 1640 x 2360, while the Pro offers 11 inches and 1668 x 2388. Meanwhile, the larger iPro scales up to 12.9 inches and 2048 x 2732. Both Pro displays are distinguished by: 120Hz ProMotion adaptive refresh rate, iPad Air 5 fixed at 60Hz. The 11-inch iPad Pro 2022 is also slightly brighter than its cheaper sibling at 600 nits instead of 500 nits. However, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2022 surpasses both by moving from standard IPS LCD technology to a mini LED LCD panel. This offers many benefits, including a much higher typical brightness of 1,000 nits and much more vivid and contrasting color output. This upgrade has paid off. This upgrade is a disappointment that the 11-inch iPad Pro 2022 didn’t join its extra-large sibling in the mini LED segment, whatever the screen “head, shoulders and torso is paramount” in the iPad Pro 12.9 (2022) review. The screen is better than the iPad Air 5, but not so much. The latter also incorporates a ToF 3D LiDAR scanner, completing a much more comprehensive package for the Pro that complements augmented reality (AR) experiences. The Air and Pro both offer a 12MP selfie camera, but as already mentioned, the Pro has a TrueDepth camera that supports Face ID authentication. Both support Center Stage to track faces in video calls. Along with more advanced processors (more on that in a moment), it supports the iPad Pro 2022, which features a better all-around camera system than the Air 5. That said, in the iPad Pro 2022 review, the camera isn’t a real upgrade over the previous model, it’s better than great. So, none of these slates match the best iPhone cameras. iPad Air 5 vs iPad Pro 2022 Specs and Performance iPad Pro 12.9 (2022) (Image Credit: Future) Apple is improving the performance of its two iPad Pro 2022 models to equip the device has been installed.

Elsewhere, the iPad Pro 2022 offers Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3. This is better than Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 on iPad Air 5. However, both cellular models offer 5G connectivity.
