Imminent iPad Air upgrade could make it as powerful as an iPad Pro

Fifth-gen iPad Air to get M1 processor and 5G, according to latest report.

By replicating many of the Pro's features at a more sensible price tag, the 2020 iPad Air offered a compelling blend of power and affordability. The world has changed since then, with the Pro line upgraded with M1 processors in 2021 and the Air neglected for the entire year. But based on the latest rumors, the Air's glory days could return at the company's Peek Performance spring event.
