Apple wants us to believe that the new iPad Air 5 gen spanks Air 4. I'm really not seeing much difference performance wise. I think iPadOS is hampering the device and would love to see it blur the lines between itself and macOS.
I guess you didn't read the story ('https://www.macrumors.com/2022/03/14/m1-ipad-air-benchmarks/') after this one? You know, the one where actual benchmarks say the iPad Air 5 is up to 70% faster than the iPad Air 4? If you can't "see" 70% faster performance, you're doing it wrong. ;)

True, I hadn't read the other article before posting. But answer me this: Will that 70% faster performance really amount to more than just apps opening and executing a couple of seconds quicker? ;)

what about real world usage? tests done in the lab but when you hold it in your hand it doesn't feel any faster.
