Apple has brought to the world the most powerful, versatile, and the most colorful iPad Air ever. The new iPad Air is available in five gorgeous finishes which rock an all-screen design that has expanded to 10.9 inches. The camera and audio of the new iPad Air have also been upgraded with a new integrated Touch ID sensor in the top button. It is powered by the most powerful A14 Bionic chip making it the most powerful iPad Air to date. The new iPad Air will be available starting next month.
“Today we’re excited to introduce a completely redesigned and far more powerful iPad Air, debuting Apple’s most powerful chip ever made, the A14 Bionic,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With its gorgeous new all-screen design, larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, next-generation Touch ID, and a massive boost in performance with A14 Bionic, the new iPad Air brings customers powerful pro features at an even more affordable price. Along with major upgrades to the iPad Pro and eighth-generation iPad this year, and the powerful new features of iPadOS 14, this is our strongest iPad lineup ever, giving our customers even more ways to enrich their daily lives.”
All-New iPad Air Design in Five Beautiful Finishes
The five beautiful finishes of the iPad Air include silver, space gray, rose gold, green, and sky blue. Packing 3.8 million pixels and advanced tech, the 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display takes the visuals to a whole new level. It is also compatible with the Magic Keyboard, taking productivity to the next level as well.
Most Powerful iPad Air with A14 Bionic
The A14 Bionic chip is by far the most powerful chip and it goes into the new iPad Air as well. Now you can edit 4K videos easily and create amazing pieces of content. Moreover, gaming will also be improved thanks to the 11.8 billion transistors packed inside the A14 Bionic.
Upgraded Camera and Immersive Audio
The selfie camera is 7MP which offers HD FaceTime experience. The camera on the rear is the same as the iPad Pro standing at 12MP. Stereo Speakers in landscape mode elevate the audio experience so users can enjoy wider stereo sound while watching a video.

- New compact designs for incoming FaceTime and phone calls, Siri interactions, and Search to help users stay focused on the task at hand.
