iPad Pro vs. iPad Air: Which Tablet Is Right for You?

The new iPad Pro with tandem OLED and the 2024 iPad Air are two of the most advanced tablets available. Which is right for you, though? This useful video will help you make an informed decision. 

Coming to you from Matthew Moniz, this insightful video explores the new iPad Pro and iPad Air, highlighting their design and functionality. The iPad Pro's tandem OLED display is particularly noteworthy, offering exceptional brightness and contrast. However, despite its impressive specs, the iPad Pro's high price point and the need for additional accessories like the Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil Pro can make it a challenging investment. This video emphasizes how the new iPad Pro, while innovative, may not completely replace a traditional laptop for all users, especially when it comes to more intensive tasks that require a full computer setup.

The video also discusses the 2024 iPad Air, which, while more affordable, still offers a powerful performance with its M2 processor. This makes it a suitable option for artists and sketchers who need a reliable device for drawing and other creative tasks. However, it lacks the high refresh rate display that many users might expect at its price point. The video raises important points about the practicality and usability of these devices, encouraging you to consider how these tablets fit into your workflow and whether their features justify their costs.

Moniz also provides a detailed comparison between the new iPad Pro and other devices, including the MacBook Air and Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. The comparison highlights the strengths and weaknesses of each device, particularly focusing on the display technology and processing power. The tandem OLED display of the iPad Pro stands out for its vibrant colors and high brightness, making it a superior choice for visual content. However, the video also notes that for many users, the performance differences might not be significant enough to warrant upgrading from an older iPad Pro with a mini LED display.

The iPad Pro's new features, such as the reduced number of studio microphones and the removal of the ultrawide camera, are also covered. While these changes might seem like downgrades, the video suggests that they are based on user data showing these features were rarely used. Instead, the focus is on enhancing the overall user experience with features like the Auto True Tone flash for better document photography and improvements in sound quality and display performance. These updates aim to make the iPad Pro a more versatile and user-friendly device, though it still faces limitations in replacing a full computer for all tasks. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Moniz.
