Upgrading from an iPad Air 2 to an iPad Air 3 may sound like a smaller improvement because you are going from the second generation to the third generation, but due to the release dates, this is a considerable upgrade. The iPad Air 2 was released in late-2014, and the iPad Air (3rd generation) didn’t arrive until March 2019. The display size increased from 9.7” on the Air 2 to 10.5” on the 3rd generation Air. The 10.5” display is also brighter at 500 nits and supports True Tone. Other big improvements that arrived with the 3rd generation iPad Air include support for the Apple Pencil and Apple Smart Keyboard, along with a 7MP FaceTime HD camera, up to 256GB of storage space, and the Apple A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine.
