Over M1 model, the new M2-powered model has a brighter display (and a bigger one in the 13-inch model) but uses the same liquid retina technology, is available in new 512GB and 1TB storage options, gets same cameras and body, and a similar battery life as well. The only major changes would be the M2 chip, more storage options and the new location of the camera.

iPad Air 2024 Vs Galaxy Tab S9

The Apple iPad Air with M2 chip would surely be faster than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 on the Tab S9. While both of them offer decent hardware, the Galaxy Tab S9 gets you a better display that is an AMOLED panel with a higher 120Hz refresh rate. It also has the S-Pen bundled with the tablet whereas you’ll have to purchase the Apple Pencil Pro separately in case of iPad Air.

Finally, the choice would boil down to which operating system suits your workflow. If you are invested in the Apple ecosystem and want softwares like Final Cut or Logic Pro to work on, the iPad Air is a better pick.

However, if you want to buy a tablet for consuming digital content, are a part of the or Samsung ecosystem in specific, have to draw a lot for your work, and want the flexibility of running various Android-based softwares, then the Galaxy Tab S9 is a better pick for a cheaper price tag of Rs 56,999 considering it comes with an S-Pen in the box itself. Overall, we’d say both of them can handle gaming well and other demanding tasks as well but its the software choice that will drive your purchase.
