Exclusive New iPad Air Wallpapers

If your goal is to have as much screen real estate as possible, then the iPad Air 4 is the clear victor in this regard, especially since the bezels are much thinner.

And like the iPad Pro, the iPad Air is getting a USB-C port. The latter also features the brand-new A14 Bionic chip, and let's just say we're hyped for the performance here.

The other device that was unveiled today during Apple's Keynote 2020, with the permission of the Apple Watch Series 6 and SE, is the iPad Air. It definitely looks like an iPad Pro on the outside (especially since it also has flat sides and a raised camera bump) so if you've been looking to get the Pro look for less, the Air may be what you've been waiting for.

The entry-level eighth-gen iPad gets the A12 Bionic chip.

It also supports Apple Magic Keyboard and the new Apple Pencil that can be magnetically attached to the iPad Air. However, the 8th-gen iPad is considerably cheaper if you go for the base model, which means that you can use the leftover cash for some extra accessories.

The 10.2-inch iPad 8th gen comes with A12 Bionic chip that was last seen on the iPad Air 2019. There is also support for the 1st-gen Apple Pencil as well as keyboards from Apple and third-party vendors.

The A14 Bionic, which will ship first with the new iPad Air, is going to be Apple's fastest yet. The new 8th-gen iPad will be available at a starting price of Rs 29,900 and Rs 37,900 for the 32GB and 128GB Wi-Fi versions while the Wi-Fi + LTE variants will cost Rs 41,900 and 49,900 respectively.

The iPad's Touch ID function will be tucked into the power button at the top of the device, removing the home button and allowing for a larger screen. It's the first iPad to ship with such a connector since the iPad Pro switched to it over Lightning in 2018. That's a pretty big leap in terms of speed, and you don't have to pay an arm and a leg to get that performance either. Apple resurrected the iPad Air past year as a mid-priced option between the regular iPad and the more expensive iPad Pro. We aren't sure how much of this is down to the new screen and how much to the chipset, but it still bodes well for the battery life of the iPhone 12 lineup.

It comes in five colours: silver, space grey, rose gold, green, and sky blue.
