With Apple introducing some brand new colours to the new iPad Air (4th gen) will you be sticking with one of the traditional colours or will you mix things up?

Wanted the Rose Gold for ages, but the blue looks great, so I’d end up checking them out in store before deciding.

I want the Mini though. Sometimes I wish I had a bigger screen for watching videos, but I can’t justify £579 for a WiFi Air just for a TV.

I’m not buying, but if I were, I’d probably get the Rose Gold. When I got my XS Max, I wanted gold, but at last minute decided to go Space Gray because I was afraid I’d get sick of the flashy gold color over time and regret it. Well, ever since, I’ve regretted sticking with the same old black color that I always get.

I’m getting really tired of all Space Gray colors, which I never thought I’d say. You can’t go wrong with the other colors though.

  • Silver would probably be my second choice. It looks so clean and crisp.
  • Green is relaxing and calming imo.
  • Blue has that clean look that Silver has, but with a more “icy” twist.

If I upgrade from my 2017 iPad Pro, I’ll get the sky blue. That blue colour looks really good :)

Silver. Literally every Apple device I've owned has been the black/space grey model, so I decided some time ago that my next device(s) would be the white/silver model. I like the more traditional rather than exotic colours.

I think I’m going with the Sky Blue to go with my Blue Apple Watch, and hopefully my blue iPhone. I would start singing that I’m blue song but I’d rather not, hehe.

If I were to buy one, I'd go for the Green. Sky Blue would be a close second for me. However, I just got my 2020 11" Pro, so I won't getting it.

Hopefully the new colors don't chip as easily as the Space Grey does.

I'm all over the map on this. My MBP is space grey, but I don't love that color on the iPad so it won't be that. The silver always looks great to me; the green is probably my favorite of the colors but I worry that it won't look sufficiently businesslike in a meeting. That may leave the blue, which looks cool and collected, but still professional.

If I was buying the new Air, I’d get Sky Blue. I do plan to buy the eventual Mini 6 (or Pro 5), so hopefully they offer that in Sky Blue. I was debating between Green and Sky Blue, but once I saw a hands-on video of the colors, I prefer the Blue. The Green doesn’t look as good as I originally thought.
