During the Apple event, the American company from Cupertino announced the iPad Air 2020 in addition to the Apple Watch Series 6, the Apple Watch SE and the iPad 2020. The new iPad Air has been given a completely new design. However, that is not all!
iPad Air 2020
The fourth generation iPad Air is the first iPad without a home button, but with Touch ID. Apple has incorporated the new Touch ID sensor into the power button at the top right of the iPad.
The design of the iPad Air 2020 has been completely renewed. The model is inspired by the 11-inch iPad Pro. The aluminum edges are more angular and the Lightning connector has made way for USB-C.
Under the hood, the iPad Air 4 has the brand new Apple A14 chip. According to Apple, this is about 40 percent faster than the processor of the current iPad Air. The new 16-core Neural Engine also ensures better performance, up to 70% faster machine learning.
The new iPad features a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display. Unlike the iPad Pro, the iPad Air has a single camera and ProMotion is not available. These features remain exclusive to the iPad Pro for now.
