Apple is introducing its newest iPad Air, which comes with a 10.9″ all-screen design, A14 Bionic chip, 12MP rear camera, next-generation Touch ID sensor, and more.
Available in five finishes starting Friday, October 23, the new iPad Air has a 10.9″ Liquid Retina display, camera, and audio upgrades. The new integrated Touch ID sensor is located in the top button, and the powerful A14 Bionic provides a boost in performance.
With 3.8 million pixels, the screen features full lamination, P3 wide colour support, True Tone, and an anti-reflective coating. It is compatible with Magic Keyboard, Smart Keyboard Folio, and new Smart Folio covers, as well as Apple Pencil (2nd generation), which attaches magnetically to the side of iPad for easy pairing, charging, and storing.
Along with the A14 Bionic chop, which provides faster and better performance, it also comes equipped with a 7MP front-facing FaceTime HD camera as well as the same 12MP rear camera used in the iPad Pro, allowing for high-resolution image capture as well as 4K videos. It has stereo speakers in landscape mode, a USB-C port for up to 5Gbps data transfer, Wi-Fi 6, and 60% faster LTE connectivity.

The new speakers also use magnets with 100% recycled rare earth elements.
