The upcoming iPad Air 2020 looks like it is about to bring even more Pro-level features to the fanbase. This iPad will have a much lower price than a regular Apple product. After seeing the appearance of the iPad Pro 2020, the Apple tablet rumor mill, which is always quite active, has started to show some signs that more iPad products will appear in 2020.
So far, rumors and leaks seem to indicate that the iPad Air 2020, also known as the iPad Air 4, has a lot in common with the more modern versions of iPad pros, just like how the iPad Air 3 took its inspiration from the 10.5 inch iPad Pro. All of these updates point to the fact that Apple is trying to push the iPad Air as the mid-range tablet representative of Apple. It is pricier and better equipped than the normal iPad, but it does not have all the features of the iPad Pro.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a Mac analyst, searched on the supply chain blog Macotakara and found out that new iPad Air is going to appear sometime in the second half of 2020. This is quite a wide window and, because of Apple’s newest hardware releases, we can even expect it to arrive outside of Apple events, such as WWDC. For example, due to the current global circumstances, the latest iPad Pro was announced via a simple press release. The brand new iPad Air 2020 will probably start with a price range of around 499 USD, just like all other previous iPad Air models.
When it comes to specs, it would be reasonable to expect that the iPad Air 2020 will get a lot of hand-me-downs from the 11-inch iPad Pro, ranging back from 2018. Macotakara, in the previously mentioned report, mentions a Chinese supplier, who has some astonishing news: the iPad Air 4 will have a USB-C port.
