There have been several reports that the new iPad Air will be released by the end of 2020, and Taiwan's Industrial and Commercial Times also predicted the new 11-inch iPad Air as one of the most affordable new products in the market. Famous leaker L0vetodream also tweeted that it will have a mini-LED display and display-embedded Touch ID.
However, the same L0vetodream once tweeted that the low-cost iPad model would use the A12 (the SoC in the iPhone XS). We can't rule out the possibility that it might be the new entry-level iPad instead of the new iPad Air. The DigiTimes information is also not so accurate beyond "supply chain has started production", so it's better to wait for further information.
In the same article, DigiTimes also reported that the company plans to release a 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air with Apple Silicon (Apple's proprietary Arm-based processor) by the end of the year. This is a bit earlier than the end of 2020-2021 release mentioned by famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. We may see two models of Apple Silicon Macs all at once by the end of 2020.
