iPad Air 4 Tipped to Launch March 2021 With A14 Processor; iPad Pro Update Coming Next Month
Apple is reportedly prepping an updated iPad Pro to launch in September, with an all-new iPad Air 4 supposedly being developed ahead of a release in March 2021.
The so-called “iPad Air 4” will sport a variant of Apple’s A14 processor, and could also adopt a USB-C port and an 11-inch Liquid Retina display. The report also claims next year’s iPad Air 4 will feature an 11-inch Liquid Retina display and offer storage configurations of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB.
Apple will reportedly release a new Magic Keyboard model compatible with the tablet, suggests the report. While current generation iPad Air models support both trackpads and mice, the Magic Keyboard remains an iPad Pro-exclusive.
MyDrivers notes that the fourth-generation iPad Air will be priced at $649 USD — $150 more than the current model, possibly indicating that Apple is repositioning this tablet as a more affordable alternative to the iPad Pro.
Finally, the report claims that an updated iPad Pro is also around the corner, likely announced alongside Apple’s latest iPhone lineup. However, MacRumors notes that rumors have been mixed on when an updated iPad Pro with a micro-LED display may arrive, with projections ranging from this fall to the first half of next year.
