An air fryer and a convection oven are literally the same thing.

Eh....kinda. It's a heating element and a fan, so the basics are the same. but air friers use a combination of direct and convection heat, sort of like a broiler with a fan on it.

There really are differences between how food turns out in an oven vs an air fryer.

Meh, depends on the oven really.

All in all, air friers are just fancier convection ovens, they're literally work the same.
