accessories for iPad Air 5
The iPad Air 5, like all best iPads, is a very versatile device. It’s great for watching Netflix, typing up your assignments, or even gaming with your favorite games; however, the right accessories will make your iPad experience even better. From styluses to keyboards and the best chargers, here are our favorite accessories for the new iPad Air 5.

The extremely fast pairing makes it easier than ever to start listening to your iPad Air 5 audio, and the inclusion of Spatial Audio is really neat if you like listening to Apple Music. The six-hour battery life in the buds themselves, along with the ability to quickly charge in the case, make it easier to keep your AirPods in your ears all day long.
