Ipad air 2020 all details, specifications, price The iPad Air 2020 looks to bring even more Pro-level features to a lower-priced iPad. Now that we’ve seen the iPad Pro 2020 roll out, the Apple tablet rumor mill has started to show signs of how the rest of the iPad family will grow in 2020.
iPad Air 2020 release date and price
The new iPad Air is coming in the second half of 2020. That’s a relatively wide window, and given Apple’s most recent hardware releases, we can expect it to possibly arrive outside of WWDC 2020 and any Apple events. The latest iPad Pro, for example, was simply announced via press release.
The iPad Air 2020 starting price will likely be close to $499, as all previous iPad Air models have started at that cost.
The iPad Air 2020 might get a lot of hand-me downs from the 11-inch iPad Pro from 2018. Macotakara’s aforementioned report references a Chinese supplier who says the iPad Air 4 will feature a USB-C port, instead of Lightning.
While the iPad Air 2020 could also get Face ID if it’s heavily based on the 11-inch iPad Pro, the perks wouldn’t stop there. If it has a similar shape and build, the iPad Air would also support the iPad Pro Magic Keyboard, so you wouldn’t be limited to the Smart Keyboard. 2nd Gen Apple Pencil support would also likely follow. That’s not guaranteed, though, as the outlet does note that the new Air will have a 10.8-inch screen, which might make for larger bezels or a slightly different shape.
As for storage, expect a starting capacity of 64GB. That’s both the current iPad Air entry-level capacity, and was the storage you got with the 2018 iPad Pro.
For a processor, the A13 Bionic makes sense for the iPad Air 2020, if you consider Apple’s history of recycling CPUs. The iPad Air 3 features the A12 Bionic, which was used in the iPhone XS and XR phones (the most recent iPhones at that time), and the current iPhone 11 line uses A13 chips. By comparison, the regular iPad runs on the older A10 Fusion processor.
