Test: Apple iPad Air (2019) Surfplatta (Sammanfattning)

Upphottad. I år har Apple återupplivat en produktetikett som vi trodde var död och har satt i lite ny hårdvara i ett gammalt hölje. Den nya surfplattan placerar sig mellan instegsmodellen iPad och Pro-modellerna och möter konkurrens från Android-toppskiktet i fråga om pris. Vår recension kommer att visa huruvida detta är ett recept på framgång.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21860 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10.4 ms rise
↘ 17.6 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 62 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
58 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 27.6 ms rise
↘ 30.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 93 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (36.8 ms).

Även om Apple iPad Air (2019) placerar sig själv mellan iPad Pro 11 och iPad (2018) så konkurrerar den i fråga om pris mer med aktuella Android-surfplattor från toppskiktet. Till skillnad från instegsmodellen iPad så har den en större och helt laminerad skärm, mer lagring och en kraftigare SoC, vilket kommer med ett ökat pris på 2.000 kronor.

I fråga om teknik så levererar Apple återigen en bra surfplatta som inte har några egentliga fel och som använder teknik som visat sitt värde under tidigare år. Men det blir nu som användare lite svårare att få en översikt över modellerna, något som försvåras ytterligare av att det finns flera generationer av Pencil samtidigt.

Apple iPad Air (2019) kombinerar en modern SoC med beprövad teknik.

Våra största klagomål rör att Apple har varit sparsamma när det kommer till inkluderade tillbehör, att ytterligare tillbehör är dyra och att det tar lång tid att ladda den. Men detta spelar knappast någon roll vid användning till vardags. Med ett lågt instegspris, Touch ID och sin ljudport är iPad Air fortfarande en tilltalande produkt.
