Apple presents theiPad Air 10.5 (2019), the budget alternative to the iPad Pro. In 2019 we were expecting several new Apple products, including the update of the iPad, the best-selling tablet series in the world. It finally arrived, albeit not in the way this company has accustomed us to, but surprisingly through a press release and via an update on its website.
In particular, Apple presented two new devices – a new one iPad Mini And iPad Air 10.5 (2019), an update that we have been waiting for four years (it has finally arrived), thus releasing an intermediate model between the 9.7 and the iPad Pro, both in terms of features and price.
The new iPad Air 10.5 (2019) has a starting price of 549 € and maintains the design of the iPad of 9.7, that is, with frames and Touch ID. We didn’t notice any updates to the display or other aspects of the design, something we have to wait for a while.
Thinner and more powerful with Apple A12 Bionic
The main differences between iPad Air and iPad 9.7 are not obvious. Of course, there’s the screen size, but that’s not the only thing that sets them apart.
There is a key feature that justifies the launch of a new iPad: it is already updated with Apple A12 Bionic, the latest processor from Apple, the same as the iPhone XS. This makes it a good alternative to the iPad Pro for those looking for a cheaper model, hence the motto “Power is for everyone” that Apple displays on its website.
Furthermore, the screen is identical, Retina Display with TrueTone and compatible with Apple Pencil.
