EXCITING NEWS!!! The new iPadAir was just announced at the AppleEvent today. It has amazing new features that make you want to go for an iPad when you are on a budget but still want to have a powerhouse gadget.
They also announced an improved version of the iPad 2020 with more power. However, the iPad has the same touch ID and design.
iPadAir’s design received a complete overhaul. It now looks like the newer generation iPadPro 2019 and 2020, and finally has a USB-C connection too! It also received a new way TouchID works, which is now integrated into the StandBy button at the top. There is no Face ID here, but I don’t mind this since you will be able to use accessories that were only available for the iPadPro 2019 and 2020, such as Magic Keyboard and ApplePencil 2!
Using the ApplePencil 2 on your iPadAir means you now have the double-tap feature available, it attaches and charges on the side of your iPadAir, and it is just so much more convenient to use compared to the Apple Pencil first generation.
If you are thinking about getting your first iPad, then this is the one I would recommend. It is more expensive than the normal iPad, but a lot cheaper than the iPad Pro. The extra money you spend will be well invested and this device will last several years.
With the iPadOS14, having and using an Apple Pencil on your device is the best experience ever!
It will be hard for me to give you the reasons why you should go for the iPadPro instead of the iPadAir. One might be the screen size, as the iPadPro has an 11-inch and 12.9-inch version whereas the iPadAir will only be available in a 10.9-inch size.
Anyway, I cannot wait to get my hands on the iPadAir!
