2020 iPad Air

The 2020 iPad Air is a VERY Popular Holiday Search Item

2020 iPad Air

Evidently Santa’s is getting a lot of letters about Apple’s iPad Air. According to real estate blog HomeSnacks, the company’s newest tablet is a pretty popular potential present this year. That’s especially the case for people living in Alabama and Massachusetts. More on that in a second.

Logitech Folio Touch for iPad Air

Logitech’s Folio Touch Keyboard Case for the iPad Air is a Winner

Logitech Folio Touch for iPad Air

I tried buying a Logitech Folio Touch for the 11” iPad Pro before my new iPad Air arrived last week. I knew that cases for the two should be interchangeable and that is true except for one not so little detail- TouchID. Many iPad cases cover the Power button with flexible material. Unfortunately, the Folio Touch for the 11” Pro  does this, rendering TouchID on the iPad Air unusable.

Unfortunately, the model for the new iPad Air wasn’t in stock at any of my BestBuys yet, but I was able to get one shipped and it arrived last week while I was working out of town, so I started kicking the tires on it this weekend.

Living With the 2020 iPad Air: The New Default

IPad Air 4 in box

So who is the iPad Air for, exactly? The fast answer to this question is pretty much anyone who is interested in using a tablet. After a few days of kicking the tires and comparing the new Air 4 to the iPad Pro, I feel very confident in the opinion that it is the new default Apple tablet. It is the Goldilocks iPad- not too much, not too little. It’s just right.

Living With the 2020 iPad Air: TouchID, the A14 and Sound Quality

IPad Air 4 Back

My time with the iPad Air 4 yesterday was about getting set up and started with it. Today was about leaning into a few specific features to see how they work, as well as how they stack up with the iPad Pro.   Specifically, I tested the new TouchID sensor, and did some real-world testing on the processor and the speakers.

Living With the 2020 iPad Air: Getting Started

IPad Air 4 Case

I came home from working out of town to a new iPad Air. Unfortunately, after a long couple of days on the road, it didn’t make it out of the box. However, after a good and long night’s sleep, I got the new Air out this morning and got started.

I’m still waiting for the last of the applications from my iPad Pro’s backup to make their over as I start writing, but I’ve spent enough time with the new hardware to form some initial impressions.

It Seems Apple is Playing Games With the iPad Air

And that game would be called bait and switch. Or maybe it’s just a little deck shuffling slight of hand. Either way, the iPad Air still isn’t here and if you believe the Apple rumor mill, it sounds like it won’t be here after today’s event, either.

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.

Apple’s Watch and iPad Event Went Exactly By the Numbers

Apple Watch Series 6

And that’s just fine

So Apple’s first of two or three streaming events this fall is in the books and, well, it was pretty uneventful. Other than pricing details for the new Apple Fitness+ and Apple One subscriptions, there really wasn’t anything major revealed today. I can’t remember if anyone predicted the Product RED Watch beforehand, but almost everything else was common knowledge.

However, that doesn’t mean that this event was irrelevant.

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.
