iPad Air 5 owners complain about build quality and creaking

Just days after receiving their new iPad Air 5 device, users take to social media to complain about the build quality.

Reports of the iPad Air 5 with a thinner aluminum housing have surfaced online, resulting in a lot of crackling and a hollow when users hold the device. Furthermore, there were some comments about the warping of the display due to light pressure on the back. A Reddit thread went on to say that they were concerned about build quality, leading several others to agree and expand on the issue.

Online reviews are trickling in, but so far haven’t mentioned a single bad build quality. Aside from new color options, the 5th-generation iPad Air shares some similarities with its predecessor, albeit with the new M1 chip, 5G connectivity, and USB-C for data transfer and charging.

The 5th-generation iPad Air will be available in stores in the US on March 18.
