iPad has been the choice for many when it comes to productivity, entertainment, and even gaming. Moreover, it can be a great companion alongside your iPhone or your MacBook considering you are rooted into the Apple Ecosystem. Even if you aren’t, iPads are one of the most advanced tablets available in the market for an average consumer to integrate it into their workflow. So here are some of the models you can purchase and some of the best offers on iPad in India:
iPad Air 4 (2020)
While the newly unveiled iPad Air with M1 chip may be more powerful, it does seem to have some build quality issues. However, the iPad Air that was released in 2020 with the very same design doesn’t seem to suffer from this issue and is also powerful enough for all your needs as it has the A14 Bionic chip under the hood.
It has a 10.9-inch 2360 × 1640 Liquid Retina LCD display. Touch ID has now moved to the top and will be integrated into the power button. Another change in the new iPad Air is the inclusion of Type-C port for charging instead of Apple’s lightning port. This will help in the diversity of connectivity options available in the market.

In addition, a new USB-C port allows faster connectivity and cellular models with 5G.
