The first of the iPad is the eighth generation, which comes with the Apple A12 Bionic, a processor 40% faster compared to the previous generation. The design remains identical to last year, with quite generous bezels and Touch ID on the rear.

The second model is the new generation iPad Air, with a renewed design, very similar to the iPad Pro. It has a 10.9-inch retina display and its resolution is significantly higher (2340 x 1640) than that of the eighth-generation iPad. It also features True Tone, better lamination, and ultimately a top panel.
In this model Touch ID has been incorporated inside the small unlock button, thus being the smallest Touch ID they have ever introduced. This model also comes with USB type C, something that allows both charging and connecting it to external monitors. The front camera is 7 megapixels with Smart HDR, and the rear camera is 12 megapixels, the same as the iPad Pro.
The most important thing in this new model is that Apple A14 Bionic debuts, a five-nanometer processor, the first to be commercialized. It is a much faster processor, with a new architecture and six cores, two of which are high performance. The GPU is 4-core, and it promises much faster graphics. The CPU is once again 6-core, two of them high-performance. This is the processor that the iPhone 12 Pro will carry, thus anticipating Apple’s flagship smartphone.
