In its September 15 event, Apple launched a couple new hardware. No, not the iPhone 12 series just yet. But a couple of new Apple Watches and iPads, including the new iPad Air 4.
The new iPad Air 4 2020 features a large 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display. The uniform bezels were made possible by putting the TouchID fingerprint scanner on the lock/power button at the top — making it the first Apple device to have this feature.
Under the hood, it’s powered by the latest Apple A14 Bionic chip that’s built on an impressive 5nm process. It comes with 2x performance cores and 4x efficiency cores that should provide 40% better performance from its predecessor. There’s also a new GPU that’s 30% faster.
The battery longevity is relatively the same. But this time, you’d be charging it via the USB Type-C port using the included 20W fast charger.
Of course, it has support for the Apple Pencil stylus and the Magic Keyboard with a touchpad. It will also come in cool new colors — Rose Gold, Green, and Sky Blue, apart from the usual Space Gray and Silver options.
The rest of the specs have been carried over. There’s the 12-megapixel main camera on the back, 7-megapixel on the front, and stereo speakers.
The iPad Air 4 has a starting price of Php33,990 in the Philippines and is now available through Apple’s website. It should be available in Power Mac Center and other Apple Authorized resellers in the coming days or weeks. You can check the full specs list and pricing below.
