The iPad Air 2 was released in 2014, and the 4th generation iPad Air was released in 2020. This nearly six-year span in release dates means major improvements that go beyond improved internal specifications. The iPad Air (2020) includes a bigger display and a new exterior design similar to the iPad Pro.
