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.

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.

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.

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.

The Apple Oracle Has Spoken and it’s Talking About iPads and Watches

No, as good as Jon Prosser is, he has not ascended to oracle status yet. According to @ApplTrack, he hasn’t even passed up Mark Gurman at this point. No, if you want a source of release information that is pretty much 100% reliable, then you should be paying attention to the Eurasian Economic Commission’s filings. They are open and Apple major devices always hit there within a month or so of release.
