The new iPad Air may be one of the next tablets from Apple after the iPad Pro 2020. If it is then it will come with plenty of improvements on its predecessor.
The iPad Air is the second most top-end tablet of Apple, which sits above the iPad Mini (2019) and entry-level iPad ranges. The last launched tablet of this series was the iPad Air 3 in 2019. So this new tablet which is going to launch will be iPad Air 4.
Leaks about Air 4 starts rolling in for new Air 4 iPad, which are mentioned below. Till now we have not enough to tell you about this tablet.
iPad Air 4 Release date and price
Unlike phones, Apple doesn’t rely on a yearly release pattern for its new tablets. We are saying this because the iPad Air 3 was launch on March 19, 2019, but Apple didn’t repeat this for its new tablet. It is expected that Apple will release its new tablet at some indiscernible point in the future.
We are expecting to release for a later 2020. But the only rumor that we heard about release date says that it might be later than that, maybe in March 2021.
The rumor that we heard about price says that the price of Air 4 will start at $649 (roughly £500, AU$900). This price is for a version of 128GB storage. The Air 4 will only go up for the 256GB and 512GB versions according to leak.
The price of the previous iPad Air was starting from $499 / £479 / AU$779. There will be a great increase in prices in some regions.
Apple doesn’t always change the price of its new tablets to the new one. Apple often discounts the older models to differentiate them. So we can expect that the price of the new Apple iPad Air 4 will not increase too much.
The first leak that we heard about the new Air 4 gives us some key possible details. It details two big changes in the tablet.
The first one is that it is expected that the iPad Air 2020 will come with USB-C connectivity instead of a lightning port. The second detail that was mentioned is an 11-inch size, while the size of Air 3 was 10.5-inch.
Due to these changes, the new Apple Air 4 will seem more like the iPad Pro 2020 than previous models.
Another smaller leak that we heard suggested that the iPad Air will come with an in-screen fingerprint scanner. Apple didn’t use this technology in its any phone or tablet till now while many Android phones are using it.
It is expected that the new tablet will come with a similar design to the iPad Pro. The new tablet will have a Face ID log-in, four stereo speakers, one rear camera, a Liquid Retina display, and also the A14 or A14X Bionic chipset.
These are all leaks and new that we know so far. We will update this article as soon as we heard some new updates.
