Apple unveils new iPad Air with A14 Bionic chipset

Today Apple took the wraps off its newest tablets. We have a brand new iPad Air as well as a performance boost for the entry level iPad.

iPad Air

Let’s start with the new iPad Air. It has a fresh design, which is clearly inspired by the iPad Pro line. The screen bezels are smaller, the port is USB-C and not Lightning anymore (and you get a 20W charger in the box).

The tablet has the same footprint as its predecessor, but because of the smaller bezels it now has a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with 2360×1640 resolution. TouchID is integrated into the new, top-mounted power button.

The new iPad Air is powered by Apple’s new A14 Bionic chipset, which is also expected to feature in the upcoming iPhone 12 family when it launches later this year. The A14 is built on a 5nm process, and it’s the first in the industry to reach that milestone.

On the rear there’s the same camera as on the iPad Pro models, a 12MP shooter with f/1.8 aperture, support for 4K video recording at 60fps, 240fps slow-mo, and improved video stabilization. For selfies you get a 7MP camera with f/2.0 aperture and 1080p video at 60fps.

The new iPad Air, running iPadOS 14, will be available next month in silver, space gray, rose gold, green, and sky blue starting at $599 (Wi-Fi-only) or $729 (Wi-Fi + Cellular) with 64GB of storage. It will also be offered with 256GB storage at $749/$879.

iPad (8th Generation)

The entry-level, eight-generation iPad (2020) now has the A12 Bionic chipset at the helm, with its 6-core CPU and 4-core GPU.
