When is it time to upgrade? (#82)

There’s a rumor going around that Apple will release a new iPad Air in March (alongside a new iPhone SE, if you were waiting for that). It makes sense, the iPad Air is due for a spec bump. Currently, it sports the A14 Bionic chip, which is fast, but not as fast as the A15 Bionic that’s in the iPad mini 6 released last year. It also has worse cameras, and you can’t get it with 5G if that’s your jam. In other words, due for a spec bump, not a refresh, so expect the new iPad Air, which’ll be the 5th generation, to move up on par with the iPad mini.

That’s how Switch to iPad #82 starts. The issue isn’t so much about the rumor, or iPad Air, though. Instead, I’m discussing when it’s time to upgrade your iPad to something newer, more shiny.

📧 Switch to iPad #82 is out now, and requires a paid subscription.
