All of Apple's latest iPad models, including the iPad Air 4, now feature USB-C charging compatibility. That means you need to invest in some new cables to charge your favorite lightweight tablet. Never fear! We've compiled a handy list of all the best USB-C charging cables for iPad Air 4 just for you.
As usual, Anker comes to the table with the right balance of quality and affordability. The Anker USB-C cable is long and durable, and it comes with a neat carry pouch that allows you to let out only the length of cord you need, keeping the rest organized and tangle free. Thousands of users agree that this is the leading USB-C cable for the price.
You simply can't go wrong with the original. We know that Apple cables are made with quality materials and they always work seamlessly with our Apple devices. This cable is not the cheapest, but it's not the most expensive either.
The original, only longer
If you enjoy the reliability of an Apple original but you prefer a longer charging cable, it is also offered in a two-meter length. Surprisingly, even though it's a longer cable, it's the same price as the one-meter version.
Durable, fast charging
Here's a high-quality cable from Belkin that promises faster charging and longer durability due to its tightly woven aramid fibers. This cable is four feet long; it comes in white, black, and even pink! For performance and materials, this is one of the best USB-C charging cables for iPad Air 4.
Now here's an extra useful charging cable. Not only does it come with the USB-C connections you need to charge your iPad Air 4, but this multifunctional cable also includes USB-A, lightning, and micro-USB connectors to provide power for all of your different devices.
The right angle
If your charging cables tend to bend and break, check out the right angle connector on this Aukey USB-C cable. It keeps the charging connector flush against the device and leads the cable off to one side. This makes for less bending and breaking. It also keeps cables more organized.
Amazon's own brand is known for its efficient, low-cost accessories. The AmazonBasics USB-C cable is an extra short, no-nonsense cable that works well at a very low price.
