Apple launched the iPad Air today with an iPad Pro-like design priced at $ 599. The new tablet is the first device with Apple’s new 5 nm A14 chip – better than the iPhone 12.
The new iPad has a 10.9-inch screen for liquid retina with a Resolution 2360 × 1640. The screen also supports the P3 color gamut and offers more colors on the screen.
Instead of providing FaceID, Apple is providing a new TouchID for the power button. It has a USB-C port for charging and data transfer, as well as Wi-Fi 6 compatibility.
The new iPad Air has a 12MP rear camera that is used in the iPad Pro with 4K video recording capability. It also has a 7-megapixel FaceTime HD snapper on the front.
The device also has stereo speakers when held in landscape orientation. These can be very useful when watching Netflix or YouTube.
According to Apple, the new iPad Air is compatible with smart accessories like Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard Cover.
The redesigned iPad Air will be available in the US next month, starting at $ 599. You can buy it in five colors or, as Apple says, ready-made. Personally, the blue one is my favorite.
For comparison, the new iPad Pro 11-inch model costs $ 799. Many people might want to buy this new iPad Air at a cheaper price and a new chip.
