Worth upgrading from Ipad 5th Gen to Ipad Air 4?

I've been contemplating upgrading my Ipad 5th Gen to Ipad Air 4. Is it worth while? I havn't seen any comparisons online. I mainly do web surfing, reddit, youtube, stocks. But have noticed the battery doesn't last as long anymore.

Last time I seen it in store the screen looked fantastic, was buttery smooth, so was intrigued.

Apple online quote me a $155 CAD trade in price. Are we expecting to get something new this year that I should hold off?

I would do it just for the laminated screen

If Apple maintains its yearly release pattern, there should be an Air 5 this year, but it is hard to say with all the uncertainty of Covid and the stuff going on around the world.

My wife upgraded to the Air, I assume it's the 4. She likes the slighly larger screen, bit more lightweight obviously. Also, do not trade in your old IPad, you can get at quite a bit more than that privately.
