Apple has introduced a new iPad Air that looks very similar to the company’s iPad Pro.
The new tablet was introduced during Apple’s virtual event.
Apple has significantly changed the design of the iPad Air, which was introduced last year between the iPad and the iPad Pro.
Bells were prominent in last year’s Apple iPad Air with a button for Touch ID, but this time the bezel around the screen is much smaller.
The iPad has a larger 10.9-inch liquid retina display with True Tone support and anti-reflective coating.
Apple has moved the Touch ID fingerprint sensor to the top of the power button.
The tablet is powered by an already powerful Apple A14 Bionic processor, and according to the company, its performance is 40% better than last year’s iPhone Air, while the graphics support has also been improved.
Apple says it is the most advanced chip it has ever made and includes mission learning accelerators.
Apple also showcased apps based on this technology during the event.
Like the iPad Pro, the new tablet also adds a USB Type-C that offers 20-watt fast charging support, as well as 5GB of data transfer support with Wi-Fi Six.
As far as the camera is concerned, there is a 12-megapixel camera on the back like the iPad Pro with improved video stabilization while there is a 7-megapixel camera on the front.
The tablet also has Apple Pencil support that will be magnetically attached to the device and will cost the user $129 (over Rs 21,000).
Similarly, Apple’s Magic Keyboard will be available for $299 (approximately Rs. 50,000).
The new tablet will be available to consumers next month at a price of $599 (approximately Rs. 100,000).
Apple also introduced an entry-level iPad priced at $329.
The tablet has a 10.2-inch display, A12 processor, 32 to 128 GB storage, while the LTV version will start at $459 and will be available to consumers from September 18.
