While Apple’s entry-level iPad is great for casual use, the Apple iPad Air is for when you need a little bit more oomph. It’s speedy, sleek and powerful. What more could you want?

Normally priced at $599, the Apple iPad Air Wi-Fi-only model is slightly larger than the previous iteration, with a 10.9-inch Retina display compared to 10.2. It’s also zippier, thanks to Apple’s A14 Bionic chip (the older model uses the A12 processor). Plus, it has 64GB of on-board storage instead of 32GB. In just about every way, the Apple iPad Air is bigger, faster, sharper and sleeker.
Said a fan: “Easiest and most powerful iPad Apple next to the Pro.”
Your on-the-go companion
There’s a reason it’s called the iPad Air: It weighs only a pound. That's right; 16 little ounces. So slip it in your tote and off you go.
“...It's a bit faster, a bit thinner, a bit lighter, and a bit shinier than all the tablets I've used before,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “But, taken altogether — and taken along with the second-generation Apple Pencil — it feels like an entirely new experience. I haven't been this struck by a new device in a while...it fits itself into my workflow immediately. I think the highest praise I can give it is that it's amazing how quickly it effectively disappeared: Within a couple days of using it, I stopped noticing it, because everything about writing and taking notes with the iPad and the Pencil felt second nature; it felt like it had always been there.”
At $500 (was $599), the Apple iPad Air combines the power of the iPad Pro with the light-as-a-feather, compact design of the standard iPad. If you want more speed and power than the entry-level model but you’re not ready to spring for the Pro, this is the one to get.

Despite semiconductor shortages peaking during the second quarter of 2021, Ford says it delivered better-than-expected operating results by leveraging strong demand for new vehicles, like its Bronco SUV, according to its most recent earnings report. In April, Ford had expected to lose about 50% of its planned Q2 production, resulting in a profit loss for the period. With demand for the Mustang Mach-E, which CEO Jim Farley said is already profitable on Wednesday's earnings call, and other Ford vehicles up 7x from last year, Farley said "the business is 'spring loaded' for a rebound when semiconductor supplies stabilize and more closely match demand," according to a statement released by Ford.

Recent decades in Britain have been warmer, wetter and sunnier than in the last century, with last year the third warmest on record, a report by climate scientists said on Thursday.

Brazil’s youngest Olympic medallist, Rayssa Leal, arrived home on Wednesday to find a lawyer she did not know had trademarked her nickname because she was worried unscrupulous business people might take advantage of the 13-year-old skateboarder. Flavia Penido said she applied to register the ‘Little Fairy’ nickname given to Leal, who won a silver medal in Tokyo in the street category. Penido watched Leal’s performance that enchanted Brazil in the early hours of Monday morning and soon after consulted national trademark authorities to see if anyone had registered the name for skateboarding clothes or equipment.
