2020 iPad Air Will Boast Notable Upgrades But Carry A More Affordable Price Tag Than Its Predecessor

    Apple is reportedly spinning up its supply chain to make new ARM-powered MacBooks and new tablets. The company believes both product categories are likely to experience bigger sales this year as compared to 2019.

    Sporting a 10.8-inch screen this time, the new iPad Air will reportedly adopt the iPhone SE strategy, meaning, it will pack a powerful chipset but come bearing an affordable price tag. It could pack the Apple A13, the chip that powers the $400 iPhone SE 2020, but there are some reports that do not coincide with this.

    Last year’s iPad Air packs the A12 chipset and starts at $500 for the 64GB model. The vanilla iPad with a 10.2-inches display is powered by an older A10 chipset and retails for $330 at the moment. In other words, the iPad Air 2020 could carry a price tag that falls somewhere between those two.

    The new Air has been subject to multiple rumors and speculations, suggesting that it may be the first non-Pro to get rid of the Lightning port and replace it with the USB-C port. Another Pro feature associated with the new model includes the possibility of the Magic Keyboard support.

    Touted as the world’s most reliable Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo says if you are restlessly waiting to get your hands on a new iPad mini, it is coming next year. Kuo also suggests that the iPads will be bundled with 20 W chargers, unlike the iPhones that are likely to completely dump chargers in the near future. As for the 13-inch models of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, both with Apple chipsets under the hood, are allegedly still in development and are slated to hit the store shelves by the end of 2020. Earlier reports suggest the new iPad Air will have a Face ID or an in-display version of the Touch ID.
