Apple has rolled out a new support program for owners of 3rd Gen iPad Airs who are experiencing a particular problem. Evidently there are some Airs that have screens that randomly go blank and stay that way. Permanently. Some may exhibit some flickering or a flash before going blank, but once they go, it sounds like they come back.
I spent most of yesterday taking the new iPad Mini for a spin and watching my daughter have a blast with it. Now it’s time to focus on the new iPad Air. Where the Mini felt almost foreign because I haven’t used one for so long, the new Air still feels quite familiar. Even though I didn’t hang onto it, I tried the 10.5″ iPad Pro when it was released in 2017. I really liked it, but the 12.9″ still won out, in the end.
