iPad Air 2019

The Apple iPad Air 3rd Generation (iPad Air 2019) is a tablet that was designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 2019 to 2020 as part of the iPad Air series. The tablet has been introduced on March 18, 2019, and its price started at $499.

The third generation of iPad Air features a Six-Core 2.5 GHz 64-bit Apple A12 Bionic processor with Quad-Core graphics, Apple M12 coprocessor, a new 10.5″ Retina LED-backlit LCD IPS Display with True Tone, fingerprint identity Touch ID sensor built into the Home button, Wi-Fi, 3 GB of RAM, 64 GB or 256 GB of flash memory, Bluetooth 5.0, Dual camera system; front 7 Mpix FaceTime Full HD camera, and rear 8 Mpix camera with 1080p video recording capability, accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, digital compass, Apple Pencil (1st Generation) support, Lightning port, 3.5-mm headphone jack, and an optional version with GPS, 3G, 4G / LTE data capability.

The third generation of iPad Air features an upgraded, 7 Megapixel front camera (used first in the iPhone 7 and up to the iPhone Xs), compared to the 1.2 Megapixel camera found in the previous generation. However, it retains the same, older 8MP rear camera.

The iPad has a 2.5 GHz Six-Core processor, the Apple A12 Bionic chip. That chip has a 66% faster clock speed than the 1.5GHz triple-core Apple A8X in the iPad Air 2. It also has a slightly larger 10.5-inch Retina display, which allows the LCD to adapt to ambient lighting to change its color and intensity in different environments, and P3 wide color gamut to allow the LCD shows more vibrant colors.

This iPad Air retains the Lightning port, keeps the headphone jack, and has a slightly larger battery of 30.2 watt-hours (up from 27.6 Wh), rated by Apple to provide the same “10 hours” of active use.

This iPad has been discontinued on September 15, 2020, and has been replaced by the iPad Air 4th Generation.

Today iPad Air 3rd Generation is 5 years old!
