iPad Air (2020)- Price, Specs and Expected Price in Nepal
"Apple has launched IPad Air (2020) with bigger screen and better performance."
Apple has launched IPad Air (2020); and one must accept that the features, processor, and everything one gets in this iPad at such a price is reasonable. Even though the price of the iPad is relatively higher this time, it is worth buying as it has the powerful A14 Bionic Chipset, relatively larger screen, and many more advanced features.
IPad Air Design
The iPad Air is relatively larger than its predecessor as it has a 10.9-inches display. The iPad has now switched to squared-off sides and round corners. The Liquid Retina display has support for True Tone and Wide Color (P3). Likewise, the display of the iPad is fully laminated, and it has an additional coating to avoid fingerprints and reflection. As the size of the display has been increased, the Touch ID has also been shifted to the top right corner of the device in a relatively smaller size. However, the front camera is still on the side when you hold the iPad in landscape. So prepare to have your eyes looking way off to the right or left when you’re on Zoom calls.
If you have been using the previous 8th Gen iPad, then you may have to reconsider buying the accessories as well. The cable is different and other second-gen accessories are also used on the iPad.
Performance and Memory
The new iPad Air has the most powerful chipset of all i.e. A14 Bionic chipset. It is the main highlight of the iPad, and also a major reason for you to purchase the iPad. The same processor is used in the newly launched iPhone 12 series as well. The iPad features an improved Hexa-core CPU and quad-core graphics unit. With the new setup, Apple is claiming up to a 40% boost in CPU and a 30% boost in graphics performance compared to the last generation iPad Air that featured the A12 Bionic.
As for the storage, iPad Air is available in two storage variants i.e. 64GB and 256GB. One is too cramped while the other is $150 expensive than the first one. This is the most unsatisfying part of the iPad Air. If it had a 128GB variant, then no customer would have to feel disturbed.
As in the iPad Pro and iPhone 11, the iPad Air features a 12MP wide camera at the rear. It can record up to 4k videos; however, there is no ultra-wide or any other sensor. At the front, iPad Air has a 7MP facetime camera. Both cameras use backside illumination technology and support Smart HDR and Auto Image Stabilization.
