At an online event on September 15, Apple announced the new iPad Air. In this article, we bring you a comparison of the specifications of this iPad Air (4th generation) with the 11-inch Pad Pro which is close in performance to this iPad Air (4th generation) and the 3rd generation iPad Air.
The fourth-generation iPad Air has a design similar to that of the iPad Pro. The home button has been eliminated in favor of a full screen, but the fingerprint-recognition Touch ID is now built into the sleep button. The iPhone 11 and iPad Pro have Face ID, which allows you to unlock the device simply by touching it to the screen. However, due to the recent outbreak of the new coronavirus, people are more likely to wear masks, and the Face ID-equipped iPhone/iPad Pro requires you to enter a passcode to unlock it when you are wearing a mask.
The new iPad Air is also very attractive in that the processor onboard is the new A14 Bionic, which is newer than the A12Z Bionic in the iPad Pro and the A13 Bionic in the iPhone 11 Pro. The connector for charging/syncing has changed from Lightning to USB-C.
Meanwhile, while the rear camera is not as good as the iPad Pro, it's a big improvement over the previous generation iPad Air, with an increase in pixels to 12MP and support for 4K shooting.
