After it was announced last September without revealing its launch date, Apple finally today introduced the iPad Air 2020 tablet for pre-order in many countries around the world, along with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.
And for the 64GB version that supports WiFi networks only from iPad Air 2020, it costs 599 USD, while the 256GB version that supports WiFi networks only costs 749 USD. Below are the official prices for this tablet in many regions around the world.
As a reminder, iPad Air 2020 gets an all-new design that clearly takes inspiration from the iPad Pro Series lineup. The screen frame is smaller, and the Lightning port has been phased out in favor of the USB Type-C port, although in the box you get a 20W charger.
The new iPad Air 2020 keeps the same dimensions as the previous generation of almost the same device, but due to the small screen frame, this new tablet got a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina screen with a resolution of 2360 x 1640 pixels, and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor was also transferred to a button Run on the side.
This latest tablet from Apple also got the Apple A14 Bionic processor, the same processor that is supposed to be the heart of the upcoming iPhone 12 Series lineup later this year. The new Apple A14 Bionic processor is manufactured using 5nm technology, making it the first in the world to use this manufacturing technology.
This processor includes six cores in total, two high-performance cores to handle the most complex tasks, and four intermediate cores to handle the least complex tasks. According to Apple, it has been reported that the new Apple A14 Bionic processor improves performance by 40 percent compared to the previous generation iPad Air. Moreover, it includes a graphics processor that is 30 percent faster.
On the back, the new iPad Air 2020 includes a 12-megapixel primary camera with a 1.8-inch lens that supports 4K video recording at 60 frames per second, slow-motion videos at 240 frames per second, and improvements in the stability of the footage scenes. With regard to the front camera, it includes a 7 megapixel sensor with a lens with aperture of 2.0 capable of recording 1080p videos at 60 frames per second.
The new iPad Air 2020 also supports WiFi 6, features two speakers, and supports the Apple Pencil stylus, which is attached magnetically to the side of the device for pairing, charging and storage. Apple will also provide a floating keyboard for this tablet.
The new iPad Air 2020 is running on iPadOS 14 and will be available in silver, gray, gold, green and blue colors.
