Apple introduces eighth-generation iPad and all-new iPad Air
The iPad received plenty of updated for 2020 including the powerful A12 Bionic chip that brings the Neural Engine to the entry iPad for the first time. In addition to the huge leap in performance, the iPad comes with a stunning 10.2-inch Retina display, advanced cameras, and great all-day battery life.
Perfect for those on the go, love to illustrate or, with the ongoing pandemic, for distance learning, the new iPad will launch with iPadOS 14 — bringing new features and designs such as integrating the Apple Pencil into the iPad experience for better note-taking capabilities and Scribble, allowing Apple Pencil users to handwrite directly in any text field, making actions like replying to a quick iMessage or searching in Safari fast and easy.
Apple also introduced its most powerful iPad Air ever as it features an all-screen design with larger 10.9-inch display, new 12MP rear camera, next-generation Touch ID sensor, and more.
Considered the most versatile iPad Air to date, it comes with five gorgeous finishes: silver, space gray, rose gold, green, and sky blue, and an all-screen design with a larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, camera and audio upgrades, a new integrated Touch ID sensor in the top button, and the powerful A14 Bionic for a massive boost in performance.
What we love most about the iPad Air is that it was designed to be environmentally friendly and supports Apple's plan to become carbon neutral by 2030. The iPad Air uses a 100 percent recycled aluminum enclosure and 100 percent recycled tin for the solder on its main logic board, whilst its new speakers also use magnets with 100 percent recycled rare earth elements. The packaging itself comes from wood fiber that is recycled or comes from responsibly managed forests.
