Well, the Apple iPad Air 5 might be about to answer like it’s going to be unreasonably powerful. This is because 9 to 5 Mac thinks the upcoming iPad which we’re expecting to launch in just a handful of hours following our apple March event live blog here will get an M1 chip. That’s the super-powerful piece of silicon that powered the iPad pro.
In the past, apple’s iPad airs have used the same chipsets as their contemporary entry-level iPad and iPad mini device which are also used in whatever iPhone is newest at the time. That makes them extraordinarily powerful anyway but apparently, Apple didn’t think that was enough as the M1 is used in Mac book pros amongst other things. We’re expecting the M2 to debut at the event later maybe apple is using the iPad airs to use up the stock of the older chipsets.
Mobile tech is already plateauing in terms of power, and that’s because we’ve already reached the point where a processor is better than we are. If I want to steer play a game or skim through menus my devices already react so much quicker than I can tell them to do stuff.

Even top-end iPad apps used for professionals work just fine on the A15 bionic mobile processor M1 just isn’t necessary. Sure there may be professional tier apps in the future that require the M1. But professionals are going to get the iPad Pro that’s the one designed for professionals it’s factually in the name. The iPad air devices are designed and marketed as mid-range alternatives for people who don’t need all the processing power of the top-end edition. They’re for students for people like me who go to the coffee shop and write.
