Much of Apple's new iPad Air is a known quantity.
The design, screen, speakers, rear camera and fingerprint scanner have all been carried over from the 2020 model.
Apple's updated front-facing camera with center stage feature will be found across the entire iPad line
It's compatible with the same case, keyboard and stylus accessories as before.
And the M1 chip inside the new Air is lifted from last year's iPad Pro and MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini and iMac.
What's new is that you can get a combination of features in a tablet starting at $599.
It's now the lowest price you can get access to Apple's impressive M1 processor,
You also have the option of 5G for slightly faster than LTE cellular speeds.
Aside from the new processor and 5G, the iPad Air remains the iPad for those looking for a better tablet than the base model.
