Techradar Editor's Choice 2016

Expert review by: Gareth Beavis (techradar.com)

iPad Air review

 

It's no longer king, but the Air is still an excellent choice

Sleek design ; Powerful innards ; Great suite of free apps

No TouchID ; Camera features lacking ; 16GB version is too small

Want the best tablet on the market? Then get the iPad Air. It's got a stunning design, powerful innards and a superb suite of apps. It's as near to tablet perfection as you're going to get.

iPad Air review

 

Apple's old challenger gets a lower price point - is it still worth the cash?

Size and weight reduction ; Faster 64-bit processor ; Better battery life

No slo-mo video recording ; No 8MP rear camera upgrade ; Price

Apple iPad Air review

 

The iPad Air is the latest tablet to arrive in Apple's range. It's adopted the Air name, just like the MacBook Air, to show off its thin and light stature. No Apple iPad 5 branding to be found here even though, in essence, the Air is the fifth...

Thinner, lighter, faster, iLife and iWork apps are great, truly desirable tablet

Same camera as iPad 4, no 802.11 ac, can't realise 64-bit speed yet

Apple has done it again: the iPad Air is a tablet better than the last iPad. Simply put the iPad Air is the best iPad the company has ever made. It's light, it's thin, it's fast, it's amazing.

Oh how we hate being a cliché sometimes. Yes, it's true, having held the new iPad Air in our hands we can confirm that its lightness is what will convince

iPad Air review: Still going with iOS 10

 

Incredible value at a new lower price, the iPad Air is small, light, incredibly powerful and has an amazing screen

Now, with the newly renamed iPad Mini 2 (previously the iPad Mini with Retina Display), you can have the same resolution and performance, so the choice you have to make really comes down to size. If you travel all of the time and want a tablet that...

iPad Air vs Xperia Z2 Tablet comparison review

 

The iPad no longer has the tablet market to itself. As 7in Androids such as the Nexus 7 and Tesco Hudl offer cheaper but acceptable alternatives to the iPad mini, market share declines even as tablet sales go up. But the iPad Air remains the king of...

Ultimately it is a matter of personal preference. Both these tablets stand head and shoulders above the rest of the 10in tablet world. They are thin and light, well made, designed and built. They offer great displays and excellent performance, decent...

Apple iPad Air review

 

With all due respect to Microsoft and the makers of tablet PCs over the 20 years preceding its launch, the iPad was the tablet that invented the current tablet market. It's been with us a few years, but the iPad remains for many the byword for quality...

In many respects a triumph, the iPad Air also introduces compromises to hit the low-weight/thin-case targets. Sound quality through the new stereo speaker has deteriorated, and although a matter of taste we found the iPad mini-style case loses the...

Apple iPad Air video review: it's all about the weight

 

Foremost, the iPad Air is about lightness. We tried a 128GB model with 4G and on the scales this – the heaviest possible version of the iPad Air – weighs just 478g, and is only 7.5mm thick. If you've used any previous full-size iPad, you'll notice...

Apple iPad Air review

 

Apple's fifth-gen iPad twins a 64-bit A7 chip with a 9.7in Retina Display while shedding a heap of muscle mass - and all that makes it just about the perfect tablet [UPDATED: now with iPad Air vs iPad 4 video]

Screen produces luscious colours all day long ; Prettier and more portable than rivals ; Ace App Store and free Apple apps ; Ushers in dawn of 64-bit software

Lack of ports, adapters are pricey ; iOS walled garden may frustrate you ; Not a complete laptop replacement ; More capacious versions are expensive

The Retina display, iApps and skinny-as-a-Mini build join forces to make this the best tablet money can buy
