The 1st gen iPad Air and the 3rd gen iPad Air appear to be close when you consider the generations, 1st to 3rd. But, Apple took a break in the iPad Air release cycle, and this means the 3rd gen iPad Air is actually 6 years newer than the 1st gen iPad Air. Upgrading to a 3rd gen iPad Air will bring several notable improvements, starting with the display and processor. The display is bigger, a 10.5” Retina display with True Tone, and the tablet is powered by Apple’s A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine. In comparison, the original iPad Air has a 9.7” Retina display and is powered by an A7 chip. Other highlights of the 3rd generation iPad Air include up to 256GB of storage, an 8MP wide camera on the back, and a 7MP FaceTime HD camera on the front.
