Apple ipad air 2 vs Apple ipad air (2020) Comparison

iPad Air 2 (2014) vs. iPad Air 4th Gen (2020): A Comparison of Key Features


  • The iPad Air 2 measures 9.4" (H) x 6.6" (W) x 0.24" (D), while the iPad Air 4th Gen is notably bigger, measuring 9.74" (H) x 7.02" (W) x 0.24" (D).
  • The WiFi-only models of the 2nd gen and 4th gen iPad Air weigh 0.96 pounds and 1.0 pounds, respectively.


  • The iPad Air 2 has a 9.7-inch Retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 and 264 ppi.
  • The iPad Air 4th Gen features a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with True Tone and a resolution of 2360 x 1640 and 264 ppi.


  • The iPad Air 2 features a 1.2MP FaceTime HD front camera and an 8MP wide-angle rear camera.
  • The iPad Air 4th Gen has a 7MP FaceTime HD front camera and a 12MP wide-angle rear camera

Storage Options

  • The iPad Air 2 is available in 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB configurations, while the iPad Air 4th Gen comes in 64GB and 256GB options.


Unsurprisingly, the iPad Air 4th Gen offers notable improvements over the iPad Air 2, including a larger display, a more powerful processor, a better camera system, and expanded accessory support. That type of advancement in technology is to be expected when there's a 6-year gap between the release dates of the models. The iPad Air 2 remains a capable device, but it's no longer compatible with the newest iOS and the 4th gen model provides a more enhanced user experience with its upgraded features.
