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.
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.
