Why Buy Apple’s iPad Pro Instead of the New iPad Air?

Magic Keyboard

In spite of the new iPad Air, there are still some good reasons.

I’ve seen where a lot of tech bloggers and Apple fans are talking about the irrelevance of the iPad Pro in the wake of Apple’s hardware announcement earlier this week. I get it, so much so that I’m buying a new iPad Air, myself. It has most of what the typical users would like from an iPad Pro at a much more reasonable starting price of $599. I think it strikes a great balance between performance and affordability and it’s also compatible with all the same accessories as the 11″ iPad Pro.

However, while it is true that the iPad Air is now encroaching on the territory of its higher-end sibling, I’m not ready to write off the Pro quite yet. Here are a few reasons why.

Could the iPad Air 4 Become Apple’s Most Popular Tablet?

iPad Air Leaked Manual

When the iPad Air 3 was released last year, I promptly picked one up, kicked the tires for a few days and reviewed it. While it wasn’t for me, I did like it enough that I recommended it to my father, who has enjoyed it since I handed it over.

I came away pretty impressed after my time with the Air 3 and thought that the new model was a good ideal on Apple’s part. There was far too wide of a gulf between the base model 6th Gen iPad, the smaller iPad Mini, and the iPad Pro before the release of the Air. The new model gave buyers a solid, full-size mid-tier option to think about with enough features and improvements to stand out.

The rumors of a new 10.8″ iPad Air with an iPad Pro-like edge-to-edge screen, USB-C and TouchID are really picking up steam now. They have been running hot and cold for several months now, with some reports indicating a release date near WWDC, to others calling for the device to be pushed to spring of next year.

Just in the last couple of days, the rumors have all started running in the same direction, giving me a little more confidence that this new iPad really is just a couple of weeks out.

There’s an Interesting New iPad Air Camera Rumor

iPad Air Mockup

A new iPad Air is expected sometime between now and the end of October, so it makes sense that rumors about the features, components and the actual release date will start to pick up in the coming weeks. There was an interesting but odd leak this week about the new iPad Air’s camera that I’m having trouble wrapping my head around.

Looks Like Apple’s New iPad Air Will Start to Take Shape in the Third Quarter

iPad Air Mockup

While I’ve used an iPad Pro for a while now, I am excited to give Apple’s next iPad Air a close look. If it lives up to the rumors, this new Apple tablet should deliver some of the most important features of the Pro at a more manageable price point. It may not be for me, but if Apple strikes the right balance between features and value, this new tablet might replace the lower-priced iPad as the go-to device for most buyers.

The New iPad Air May Have USB-C and a New Look

It also looks like I may be 4 for 4!

Just yesterday I was feeling pretty good because I got a third 2020 prediction right. The first was full trackpad support for iPadOS. The second was a new Apple keyboard accessory with a built-in trackpad. Lucky number three was the AirPods Studio arriving at or right around WWDC. Now it looks like we have number four.

The New iPad Air Concept Making the Rounds Certainly Grabs the Eye

So I don’t usually pay attention to concept renderings and videos. They often don’t have enough basis in reality to interest me and often end up being just wishful thinking. Maybe I’m cynical, but they often seem like a waste of time. However, the new iPad Air rendering I got a look at over the weekend felt different and got my attention because of it.

The 2020 iPad Air Rumors Are All Over the Place, But Still Look Good

ipad air

When I saw rumors of an iPad Air with Mini-LED after we got the news that the iPad Pro with the same screen tech had slid into 2021, I was very skeptical. It made absolutely no sense to me that Apple would release a new technology like this on what is ultimately a mid-tier device. However, it looks like they were just behind the curve, as the China Times reported yesterday that Mini-LED has been scratched from the coming Air, as well.
