The iPad Air is a 2013 9.7-inch tablet that upon release received positive reviews for its robust, premium build and a thin and ultra-light design. Also well received was the excellent 2K resolution screen, strong performance, decent cameras and a reliable battery cell. While some users complained about the lack of touch ID functionality, it is non-expandable storage space that is the most significant letdown to an otherwise stellar device. Overall, the iPad Air is a great choice for anyone looking for a premium tablet and because quite some time has passed since it first hit the shelves, budget lovers now have a reason to smile.
