2020 iPad Air- Features

Published

on

Apple in September 2020 unveiled a redesigned iPad Air. It will launch sometime in October. Apple updated the iPad Air with a fourth-generation model that features a radical redesign that brings it closer in design to the iPad Pro. Priced at $599, the iPad Air is a middle-tier option between the low-cost $329 eighth-generation iPad and the more expensive iPad Pro, priced starting at $799. The iPad Air will be available for purchase in October, and pricing starts at $599 for 64 GB of storage. 256GB of storage is available for $749. Base prices are for WiFi models, with Cellular models available for an additional cost. The new iPad Air starts at Rs 54,900, and will start selling in India from next month.

Features of iPad Air

The iPad Air features a 10.9-inch edge-to-edge display with a 2360×1640 resolution, 3.8 million pixels, and a design that’s similar to the iPad Pro with an aluminum chassis that features flat, rounded edges that wrap around the fully-laminated display. True Tone support is included for adjusting the display to match the ambient lighting, as is P3 wide color, 500 nits brightness, and 1.8 percent reflectivity.

Apple’s iPad Air is the first iPad to offer unique color options similar to iPhone colors. The iPad Air is available in silver, space gray, rose gold, green, and sky blue. What’s most unique about the iPad Air is the new Touch ID sensor integrated into the top button, a first for an Apple device.

The iPad Air does not feature Face ID and relies solely on Touch ID for biometric authentication purposes. Other than being built into the top button instead of a Home button, the Touch ID functionality is the same as other devices that feature Touch ID.

Though there’s no Face ID, the iPad Air includes a 7-megapixel front-facing FaceTime camera along with a 12-megapixel rear camera which is the same wide-angle camera used in the iPad Pro. Speaker quality has been updated with the iPad Air now sporting stereo speakers in landscape mode for wider stereo sound when watching video.

Instead of a Lightning port, the new iPad Air has a USB-C port for up to 5Gbps data transfer along with support for connecting cameras, hard drives, and 4K external monitors. The iPad Air ships with a new 20W USB-C adapter for charging purposes.

Like the iPad Pro, the iPad Air supports the $129 second-generation Apple Pencil and it works with the $279 Magic Keyboard with trackpad that Apple offers. It is also compatible with the Smart Keyboard Folio and Smart Folio covers.

Five things you need to know about iPad Air:

  • New iPad Air resembles an iPad Pro
  • The first Apple device with the A14 Bionic chipset
  • New iPad Air supports Magic Keyboard and 2nd gen Pencil
  • It is the first Apple product to support side-mounted Touch ID
  • It lacks a LiDAR scanner

New iPad Air resembles an iPad Pro

For the first time, the iPad Air is getting a full redesign. The new iPad Air’s design is heavily inspired by the iPad Pro with squared-off sides and no home button on the front. The 10.9-inch Retina Display with True Tone is being stretched to the edges with similar bezels – similar to the iPad Pro. It doesn’t have a 120Hz ProMotion display, though. The updated iPad Air also now has a USB-C port, replacing the traditional Lightning connector. It’s also the first non-iPad Pro model to feature stereo speakers.

The first Apple device with the A14 Bionic chipset

The fourth-generation iPad Air is the first Apple product with the latest A14 Bionic processors. This is the same chipset that’s usually reserved for new iPhone 12 series, but those phones are not even out yet. Nevertheless, the chipset is made on the 5nm scale making it one of the first processors from any manufacturer in the industry. Apple claims the A14 Bionic is 40 per cent faster than the chipset found in the previous-generation iPad Air. Storage comes in at 64GB and 256GB.

New iPad Air supports Magic Keyboard and 2nd gen Pencil

And it will work with the Magic Keyboard. This is a new keyboard accessory that has a laptop-style trackpad for the iPad. The Magic Keyboard turns iPad Air into a floating display. The Magic Keyboard is originally designed for the iPad Pro, but since the new iPad Air has the same design as the iPad Pro, the accessory works perfectly with the redesigned tablet. The Magic Keyboard is sold separately and costs Rs 27,900. The new tablet is also compatible with the second-generation Apple Pencil stylus similar to the iPad Pro. The 2nd gen Apple Pencil doesn’t come in the box. You have to buy it separately for Rs 10,899.

It is the first Apple product to support side-mounted Touch ID

The new iPad Air doesn’t feature Face ID, instead it relies on a new Touch ID sensor built into the power button on the top of the tablet. It’s the first Apple device that comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. All you need to touch the top power button to use Touch ID for unlocking of the tablet or purchasing apps.

It lacks a LiDAR scanner

The new model the same12MP lens on the back as on the iPad Pro and a 7MP camera on the front. However, the Air misses on the LiDAR scanner that can be used to measure the distance to objects in a room. The expensive iPad Pro includes a LiDAR scanner and Apple’s new 3D camera technology is also coming to the iPhone 12 Pro Max. A LiDAR lens essentially enables new augmented-reality experiences on the iPad.
