according to a Tweet late on wednesday Well connected Bloomberg Reporter Mark Gurman, “Apple marketing materials for new Air Padpad Air are starting to hit retail outlets, suggesting to launch later.”
The new new Padpad Air is the first Apple device with a Touch ID built into the power button. This has allowed Apple to add a fully laminated 10.9-inch liquid retina display with True Tone, P3 wide color support and an anti-reflective coating.
This is the first time Apple has introduced a new AXX-series chip in an iPad before the iPhone. The new new Padpad Air is powered by the new 5nm-based, six-core A14 bionic chip up to 40 percent faster performance and up to 30 percent faster graphics than the previous generation iPadh Air. This is the same chip that is expected to be used for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12-Pro models, which are expected to be announced this month.
