The iPad Air is available in five colors. Breaking down the score, it was found that the CPU performance in iPad Air 4 was also faster by 9.5% while the GPU performance was better by up to 30%. Because the new iPad Air 4 with A14 Bionic just beat iPhone 12 with same chipset in Antutu benchmark results.

However, we've expected it to go on sale around the same time as the new iPhone 12 and that has proved correct, with the iPad Air now available to order in both the U.S. and UK.

As with all Apple products these days, the company is keen to celebrate the new iPad Air's Green credentials - the casing is made of 100% recycled aluminum, the solder is made of 100% recycled tin, and the speakers use magnets made of 100% recycled rare-earth metals. The 64 GB WiFi model is priced at Rs 54,900 and 256 GB WiFi variant will cost you Rs 68,900.

The iPad is now available for purchase on Apple Online Store. It's the first iPad besides the Pro to support the magnetic, second-generation Apple Pencil, and it also works with the impressive but wildly expensive Magic Keyboard. Apple claims it is the first 5-nanometer chip in the industry.

The A14 Bionic in iPhone 12 models might have tweaked to deliver a limited performance. It comes with a USB-C port and features a 7 MP selfie camera, and a 12 MP camera at the back. According to Apple, you can do web surfing over Wi-Fi for 10 hours long. The only colors that remain are Space Gray and Rose Gold, with the Rose Gold only available in 64GB.
