    Default So the iPad 5 is the iPad Air?

    I've never purchased an Apple product, I was holding off on getting a refurbished iPad 4 b/c I heard the iPad 5 would be announced in October. So, are the iPad 5 and Air the same thing?

    No! Air is the thinner version of the full size iPad! iPad 1-4 have the same looks! Air looks like the iPad Mini!

    Yes. There is no iPad 5. The iPad air is the new full sized iPad.

    The iPad Air is 5th full size tablet, so I would say it's the iPad 5, but has been named by Apple as iPad air

    Stop confusing him. The iPad Air IS the iPad 5- regardless if it's thinner.
