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.

Will iPad Air Preorders Begin Tomorrow?

iPad Air 4

We know for certain that preorders for Apple’s new 6.1″ iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will begin at 5 AM Pacific tomorrow in the United States and 29 other countries. Normally I would be sitting this one out and going about my day when 7 AM Central rolls around, but the rumor mill just keeps me hanging on.

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.

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.

DigiTimes Thinks Mini-LED Might Come to the iPad Lineup Later This Year

2020 11” iPad Pro

Rumors about Mini-LED iPads have been bouncing around for well over a year. Thanks to the effects of a worldwide pandemic, they have been all over the place in more recent months. First these new devices were coming in 2020 and later they were reported to be delayed until next year. The Mini-LED iPad Pro is still pegged for a 2021 debut. That said, now a report from DigiTimes says that Mini-LED could be back on for late 2020.

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.
