The new iPad Air features a completely new thin and light design in five finishes: silver, space gray, rose gold, green, and sky blue. The new all-screen design features a larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display. To allow the display to extend on all sides, a Touch ID sensor is integrated into the top button. iPad Air is compatible with Magic Keyboard and its floating design, and built-in trackpad, Smart Keyboard Folio, and new Smart Folio covers, as well as Apple Pencil, which attaches magnetically to the side for easy pairing, charging, and storing.
Five colours, including new Rose Gold, Green, and Sky Blue.
Following in the footsteps of the iPad Pro, the new iPad Air features a USB-C port instead of a Lightning connector.
Starting price of $599.
The iPad Air will be available during October in the United States.
It is not clear when the iPad Air will be available in South Africa. While it normally takes about 3-4 weeks for new Apple products to arrive in South Africa, this may not be true due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
