I‘m tempted to replace my 4th gen iPad Air with this one, but I need to see what iPadOS brings this summer first. If iPadOS brings the rumored improvements, I may even get the iPad Pro instead.
In exactly the same boat, love my 4th gen and I see no need to update right this second since the added M1 wouldnt really change very much at the moment, it would just be slightly faster, but if there are significant "more towards macos capabilities" updates that are targeted at the M1 based ipads announced at WWDC I'll seriously consider upgrading

This is everyday pricing. Literally anyone can order through the edu store from Apple for $549.

It tells you how popular this iPad Air is given there is no discount.

If you use apps that edit very large amounts of stuff then the M1 chip with 8GB of RAM is a good deal. Also for task switching so you don't "restart" large apps as often in your workflow.

For light usage is probably overkill. In my case I'm using Shapr3D and other modeling apps so extra RAM is good.

Selling a tablet with 64GB in 2022 should be criminally punishable by flogging. A Sandisk 128GB SD card at full retail price is $15. Not exactly the same part, but it just goes to show

Still to much money for a watered down pro. It should start at 499 and come with 128gb of storage.

Not surprising, other than the inclusion of the M1 chip. The ipad air 5 is such a missed opportunity by Apple.

I got feelings bout the M1 in the Air so soon after the pro models. Makes me think Apple had TSMC produce way too many M1 chips even after the M1 Pro/Max was in production and should’ve dedicated more resources to producing those chips.

I don’t think anyone was asking for n M1 in the iPad, not without significant bump in what iPadOS provides.
