Finally the iPad Air 4 has the A14 Bionic chip, manufactured in 5 nanometer architecture as we have already been saying with the rumors. It has 6 cores and a 40% increase in power compared to the previous iPad Air. Graphics performance is improved by 30% and a Neural Engine capable of 11.8 billion operations per second is included, so overall performance increases substantially.

We have a 12 megapixel single lens camera (dual lens and LiDAR sensor reserved for iPad Pro), and yes: Touch ID built into the lock button as the rumors said. The 10.9-inch screen is Liquid Retina and the front camera is 7 megapixels. Placed in wide mode, the iPad Air 4’s speakers offer stereo sound.

Having the same design as the iPad Pro, this new iPad Air can be used with the Magic Keyboard. There are no specific models, it works the same as you can buy for the iPad Pro; and of course we also have compatibility with Apple Pencil 2. And yes, we also have a USB-C port that ends with the Lightning port. Charging is done with a 20W adapter that is included.
