Apple revealed that the iPad Air 4 would be available for purchase in October, but they haven’t announced a date for the actual release. It appears like the company plans to stock up on tablets, so there shouldn’t be an outage soon after launch as it was the case with some electronics this year.
Mark Gurman, Bloomberg reporter, spoke about the development in a twitter post. However, he mentioned that it’s too early for iPhone 12 boxes to arrive at retailers. We should hear more about the devices shipping in a matter of days.
The iPhone launch event on October 13 will mark the time when Apple will reveal a date for the availability of the iPad Air, according to a popular tipster known as Jon Prosser on Twitter.
It’s known that promotional material for the new iPad Air was already shipped to Apple Stores, so it’s a bit of a surprise that we are still waiting for the tablet to go on sale.
The recent and improved iPad Air 4 takes some design details from the iPad Pro lineup, saying goodbye to the home button and achieving a rounded look for the display, with thin bezels. It is available in five colors: space gray, green, sky blue, rose gold, and silver.
The tablet’s brains consist of an A14 Bionic chip that will also be available under the hood of the new iPhone 12.
The 10.9-inch screen has a resolution of 2360 x 1640 pixels, but no FaceID is available.
The fingerprint sensor was relocated to the power button. The rear side hosts a 12MP camera.
