Apple is not known for releasing its products with a low-key introduction. On the contrary, it has a reputation for holding a sizable event when it introduces and debuts its goods or services, and this has been the case ever since Jobs took control of Apple. But yesterday, Apple stealthily unveiled the most recent iPad Air and iPad Mini models.
The iPad Air is the larger of the two tablets and is equipped with Apple’s newest processor, the A12 Bionic chip. The iPad Air also supports the first-generation Apple Pencil, which can be used to write, draw, and interact with other iPad Air applications. The iPad Air (2019) was just released, replacing the iPad Air 2 that debuted in 2014. Here, we’ve compared the two gadgets to discover what has changed and what new features the iPad Air 2019 model from Apple offers.
