iPad Air 5 rumored to have Apple M1 chip


New rumors emerge about the possibility of the fifth-generation iPad Air having Apple Silicon M1 processor. According to 9to5Mac, the iPad Air 5 will have the same M1 chip that Apple uses on the 2021 iPad Pro and the first Apple Silicon Macs. 

When it comes to performance, the M1 chip is about 50% faster than the A15 Bionic and 70% more powerful than the A14 Bionic, a chip installed on the 4th generation iPad Air. Specifically, the A15 Bionic has a 6-core CPU and a 5-core GPU, Apple M1 chip instead comes with an 8-core CPU and a 7-core GPU, as well as 8 GB of RAM in its base configuration.

The M1 processor will also ensure excellent performance for the iPad Air range, which can be used as a computer thanks to the Magic Keyboard, without forgetting that the next-generation iPad Pro will be available by the end of the year with a more powerful chip.
