Review Apple iPad Air (2020) – This tablet is made as an alternative to the iPad Pro which comes with many improvements including in terms of design as well as performance.
Compared to the previous generation iPad Air, Apple has overhauled the design of the New iPad Air, which this time looks slimmer with a thin bezel that surrounds the screen.
Because it has a thin bezel, there is no longer the Touch ID fingerprint sensor that the previous version of the iPad Air was placed at the bottom. Instead, now Apple has moved the TouchID above which is integrated with the power button.
Thanks to the thin bezel too, it makes the New iPad Air screen size bigger. Now doing things is more fun with the 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display which offers a resolution of 2360 x 1640 pixels.
The screen is equipped with an anti-reflective coating which also supports the P3 color gamut and True Tone. There is a 7 megapixel selfie camera on the front and a 12 megapixel camera placed on the back which has the ability to shoot 4K video at 60fps, 240fps slow-mo, and improved video stabilization.
The main highlight in the latest version of the iPad Air is the hardware sector, this tablet comes as the first device to be powered by the A14 Bionic chipset which is also planned to be used by the iPhone 12.
The A14 Bionic comes in a hexa-core design including 2x high-performance cores and 4x high-efficiency cores that have 11.8 billion transistors to deliver 40% better CPU performance than the previous generation. It also includes GPU performance improvements of 30% and 10x in machine learning.
Rounding out the specs, the new iPad Air has Wi-Fi 6 support, dual speakers, and it runs iPadOS 14. Apple didn’t reveal the battery capacity, but they did say that the new tablet comes with 20W fast charging support via the USB-C port.
