Before getting started, we check the back just to make sure this isn't an old iPad masquerading around in a new box.

New Model number: A1822—check.

Stacked up against the Air 1, the 2017 model looks very similar. Key differences include:

The absence of a lock switch (if the Air 2 did it, you can too, iPad 5)

Microphone slots shrunk down to microphone holes (less chance of junk ingress?)

Single row of speaker holes (more holes = more luxury?)

And in case you're wondering, the headphone jack did survive.
