iPad Air is a mid-priced tablet from Apple for those who want a powerful tablet that supports the Apple Pencil, but for that, an older design and lower specifications than the iPad Pro are being sacrificed. At least that was the case for the iPad Air 3, because the new iPad Air announced today comes with a modern design with many powerful features. Here's everything you need to know about iPad Air 4, redesigned 2020 version.
iPad Air 4 Release Date
The new iPad Air 4 for 2020 will be available in early October, although no exact date has been officially announced yet. Pre-orders can now be made from here.
iPad Air 4 Price
The price of the new Apple iPad Air 4 jumped $ 100 from the previous version, as expected, given the rumors about its upgraded design. IPad Air 4 will start at $ 599. Prices for all models are:
- 64 GB Wi-Fi version is priced at $ 600
- 256 GB Wi-Fi version is priced at $ 750
- 64 GB Wi-Fi + cellular SIM at $ 730
- 256 GB Wi-Fi + cellular SIM at $ 750
iPad Air 4 Specs
In addition to the refreshed design, the iPad Air 4 is also a beast of the interior. It features the A14 Bionic processor, which is the best in the world at the moment which will support the series of iPhone 12, which is translated to 40% faster performance than the Air 3. The Air 4 is also capable of 30% faster graphics processing. Apple also indicated that the iPad Air 4 will include a faster neural engine and improved machine learning capabilities.
Another noticeable change that we expected is the presence of a USB Type-C port in place of Lightning. This port will allow data transfer of up to 5Gbps which is 10 times faster than the previous Air model.
The new iPad 2020 tablet once again has two stereo speakers, but this time they will each be on a different side. Thus, users will get a distinct audio experience when viewing visual content in landscape mode.
New color options
The new iPad Air will be available in five colors:
iPad Air 4 will come with a 7MP Face-time front camera that captures 1080p video. The rear camera of the 2020 iPad Air is the same as that of the iPad Pro, and it is a 12-megapixel sensor capable of recording 4K video at 60 frames per second.
Software and OS
IPad Air 4 will run on iPadOS 14, which comes with a number of good updates that will benefit the user a lot. It is worth noting that the Apple Pencil will become more useful, especially with the Scribble feature. It is a feature of iPadOS 14 that allows users to write in any text field with the Apple Pencil, instead of having to switch between it and the on-screen keyboard.
Safari will now be able to translate websites into seven different languages. Safari will also get enhanced privacy features, including checking for weak user passwords.
The iPad's home display will contain redesigned widgets in Today View, which will now make better use of the tablet's larger screen to show more information. Tools can be organized better with the new Smart Stack option, which can stack several different UI items in one space.
