Apple today announced the arrival of a new iPad Air that will certainly surprise many of the brand’s fans, featuring a design quite different from its predecessor, coming much closer to the lines of the popular iPad Pro. Interestingly, it will not be just in design that these two models will show some similarities.

One of the highlights of this new iPad Air is the presence of extremely low margins, eliminating the controversial vertical margins present in last year’s model. For the first time, Apple decided to remove the traditional circular Touch ID, repositioning the biometric sensor to the top of the tablet.

Regarding its price, it will be available in UK from € 679 for the Wi-Fi version and € 819 for the version with support for mobile networks.

During the presentation of the new tablet, most of the new capabilities and features were focused on the level of performance guaranteed to users. Thus, this seems to present itself as a perfect alternative for users who look at the iPad Pro but have a tighter budget.

To ensure a unique level of performance, the new iPad Air will debut the A14 Bionic processor manufactured with 5nm lithography. According to the brand, this processor will guarantee a 40% performance improvement when compared to the previous model. In addition, the quality of the graphics processor will bring great improvements in the most varied tasks.

This is the most advanced processor ever developed by Apple, which will provide programmers with capabilities never before seen in Apple products. During the presentation video, some impressive examples of how crucial this processor could be were demonstrated.

Obviously, to present itself as a true productivity beast, the new Apple iPad Air arrives with support for the already very popular Apple Pencil. As with the iPad Pro, the pencil can be magnetically attached to the tablet. To complete the whole “productivity pack”, compatibility with the Magic Keyboard could not be missing.

Another great novelty is the choice of USB-C over the traditional lightning input, allowing support for fast charging at 20W.
