Funny thing is that where I live, the government is actively urging people to only get apps from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. There has been a tremendous amount of financial fraud through malicious APKs on Android. Most of the victims are housewives, retirees and other less tech savvy users. The banking apps have mandatory functionality added on Android to check for presence of malware and the banking app fails to launch if it detects questionable 3rd party installed applications (some of them are actually not malicious). These 3rd party side-loaded apps (installation is done through a web link which the user accepts) are then able to run the banking app in the background (login and password recorded by screen/keyboard intercept) and intercept 2nd factor authorisation and sms and in-app notifications. The fraud is completely done in the background but to the bank appears as a valid transaction by the account holder.
I wish the EU good luck with managing malware and financial fraud at a large scale.

This will have a positive impact on battery life: a 5000 nits display continuously on will take less than 10 times the energy of a 500 nits display continuously on. So if this factor is 2x, then a 5000 nits image displayed at 10% on duration will take on 20% of the energy of a 500 nits image displayed at 100% of the duration.

I have an iPad Air 4 and see no reason to upgrade. The only big deal is that colours are nicer. My iPad is WiFi only, the front camera is hardly used and I don't experience any real world issues with the A14 Bionic.
If I needed a new iPad, this one in blue would be the one to get, but for me, upgrading from an iPad Air 4 to 5 makes no sense.
