Lol!

Seems like this is the new ipad strategy

1. Entry ipad - 10.5”
2. IPad mini - 8.5”
3. IPad Air - 11”
4. IPad Pro - 12.9” mini led

About right. Lol! Can trash all the androids

Android tablets are rubbish and we shouldn’t it with iPad.

Is the backlight bleed very bad on the air4?
Contemplating to either get the air 4 or the iPad pro 11 (2021)..

Does the backlight bleed on the air4, in general? 😳

If budget is not a concern, I'd go for the Pro...

Coz saw one of the bro in this thread had 3 sets returned due to backlight bleeding..

Wanna see if others have similar experience and how bad is it

I moved from the 9.7inch ipad pro to the ipad air 4. The screen is excellent and I did not notice any backlight bleeding.

btw. Does anyone have a recommendation for a budget cable to connect the ipad air 4 to a TV via HDMI?
The original apple one is just way too pricey.

Try searching for UGreen USB-C to HDMI cable.

Sure it can be done, but you're going to live with a lot of limitations and frustrations.

There are so many fantastic desktop apps for coding and a PROPER file management system on desktop OS.

Go search Reddit for more experience from others.

Not doubting you. I found this and various others. They don’t specifically say it supports iPad USB C output. Which is why I worry that it will not work.

I think most get WiFi, but I among a couple of others got Cellular. Depending on your usage, as I got it to use outside mostly, and I don't want to use hotspot.

I got wifi but now kinda regretting and don't mind if someone wants to swap with me (with me topping up of course). Hotspot is a hassle :s22:

read an article that says there may not be new iPad Air this year.. not sure how true
if you’re in the market for iPad Air.. can consider the 2020 iPad Pro 11 inch.. 928 at courts (128gb, wifi model) you get double the storage of air base model and promotion display..

Agree, the instant connectivity (well, maybe takes a couple of secs), is automated. And for me, its one of the pull factors on why i decided to go with the wifi Ipad version.

It’s quite seamless anyway.
