Apple has recently unveiled its latest and greatest iPad Air, that is packed full of new and exciting features, and comes with Apple’s most advanced chip yet, the A14 Bionic. This is by far the most powerful iPad Air model ever, and features an all-new “all-screen” design, with a larger 10.9-inch display, a new 12MP rear camera, a next-generation Touch ID sensor, and more.
The all powerful, A14 Bionic:
Apple’s most advanced chip yet, the A14 Bionic, has been designed to handle even the most demanding apps, this chip is guaranteed to make it even easier for users to edit 4K videos, to create gorgeous works of art, to play immersive games, and more. Using breakthrough five nanometer process technology, the A14 Bionic is packed with a whopping, 11.8 billion transistors, for increased performance and maximum power efficiency in nearly every part of the chip. The chip also features a new 6 core design, for a 40% boost in CPU performance, and a new 4 core graphics architecture for a 30% improvement in graphics.
“We’re excited to introduce a completely redesigned and far more powerful iPad Air, debuting Apple’s most powerful chip ever made, the A14 Bionic.”Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide MarketinG
To deliver breakthrough machine learning capabilities, the A14 Bionic includes a new 16 core Neural Engine that is twice as fast, and capable of performing up to 11 trillion operations per second… This takes the machine learning apps to a whole new level. A14 Bionic also includes second-generation machine learning accelerators in the CPU for 10 times faster machine learning calculations. This combination of the new Neural Engine, CPU machine learning accelerators, and high performance GPU, will allow for the most powerful on device experiences for image recognition, natural language learning, analysing motion, and more.
iPad Air design features:
The new iPad Air features a completely new thin and light design, that is available in five different, stunning finishes including; silver, space grey, rose gold, green, and sky blue. The new all screen design features a larger 10.9 inch Liquid Retina display for a stunning visual experience, with 3.8 million pixels. The device also features many advanced technologies, including, full lamination, P3 wide colour support, True Tone, and an anti-reflective coating for an amazing visual experience.
To allow the display to extend on all sides, a next-generation Touch ID sensor has been integrated into the top button, to provide the same fast, easy, and secure way to unlock the iPad Air, log in to apps, or use Apple Pay that many customers both know and love. The iPad Air is compatible with Magic Keyboard and its floating design, and built-in trackpad, Smart Keyboard Folio, and new Smart Folio covers, as well as Apple Pencil, which attaches magnetically to the side for easy pairing, charging, and storing.
Thanks to Microsoft, all Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps are now updating to take full advantage of trackpad support in iPadOS to give iPad users, that are using a mouse or Apple’s new Magic Keyboard easy cursor control, fluid navigation, and precise adjustments. When the user moves a finger across the built-in trackpad of Magic Keyboard, the cursor cleverly transforms into the tool you need depending on the content you’re pointing to… This makes using a mouse or trackpad with iPad for common tasks like, highlighting a passage of text in Word, selecting a range of cells in Excel, and moving and resizing graphics in PowerPoint are as simple and intuitive as ever.
The latest software update from Apple brings new features and designs that take full advantage of the unique capabilities of the iPad, such as its large Multi-Touch display, and versatile accessories. Just some of the new and incredibles features of the OS14 are;
- New compact designs for incoming FaceTime and phone calls, Siri interactions, and Search to help users stay focused on the task at hand.
- Universal Search to quickly find practically anything, from locating and launching apps, to accessing contacts, files, and information, to getting answers to common questions about people or places.
- New sidebars for many apps including Photos and Files, and streamlined toolbars that consolidate controls into a single place, making them more useful than ever.
- Beautifully redesigned widgets that present timely information at a glance right on the Home Screen.
The iPadOS 14 also integrates the Apple Pencil into the iPad experience for better note-taking capabilities, and new ways to work with handwritten notes. When taking notes on iPad, Smart Selection uses on-device machine learning to distinguish handwriting from drawings, so handwritten text can easily be selected, cut, and pasted into other documents. Shape recognition also allows users to draw shapes that are made geometrically perfect and snap right into place.
The most environmentally friendly iPad yet:
The new iPad Air has been designed to be environmentally friendly and strongly supports Apple’s plan to become carbon neutral by the year 2030. The iPad Air uses a 100 percent recycled aluminium enclosure and 100 percent recycled tin for the solder on its main logic board. The new speakers in iPad Air also use magnets with 100 percent recycled rare earth elements. iPad Air remains free of harmful substances, is highly energy efficient, and uses wood fibre packaging that is recycled or comes from responsibly managed forests.
The all new, iPad Air is guaranteed to stand out from other devices, with it’s sleek and stunning design, innovative features, technological advancements, powerful chip and modern, forward thinking aesthetic. For more visit: https://www.apple.com/au/ipad-air
