    Reading Time: 2 minutes read

    Apple brings back the iPad Air after five years. This time it features a bigger display of 10.5-inch Retina Display. The new iPad Air also supports the original Apple Pencil. This means as for now, the new iPad Air does not support the second generation of Apple Pencil. The new iPad Air display design is almost the same as the previous generation of the iPad Pro. Next time if you have any notes that you need to take down, you can use the Apple Pencil with the new iPad Air.

    The new iPad Air is using the Apple’s A12 Bionic chip with a neural engine. This is the same chip which the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR use. With this chip the iPad Air is powerful to handle the gaming experience. Editing photos using the new iPad Air will be easier.

    In addition, the new iPad Air supports the Smart Keyboard. Attaching the Smart Keyboard is very simple by just plug and play. Using this keyboard, your works can be performed seamlessly. In the beginning, this accessory only supports the iPad Pro, now Apple has provided support for the iPad Air.

    Although the new iPad Air is not using the latest A12X processor which is using by the iPad Pro, Apple still promises the new iPad Air is powerful than the smaller 9.7-inch iPad. Apple is retaining the Touch ID feature on the new iPad Air. The new iPad Air does not also feature the USB-C port or the Face ID where the iPad Pro models have.

    As for now, Apple has not provided any details on the launch date in Malaysia. The new iPad Air comes with three new colors Silver, Space Gray, and Gold and the base price is at RM2199.00 which is cheaper than the iPad Pro. At this moment, ordering online through the Apple Store Malaysia is not possible. If you would like to have a mid range iPad then you should go for the new iPad Pro.
