Apple Unveils New iPad Air with M1 Chip
Alongside the new iPhone SE, Apple has also unveiled a new iPad Air that stands between the cheaper iPad and the more premium iPad Pro models. It offers a Wi-Fi-only variant and another 5G model with eSIM support.
The new iPad Air is powered by Apple's M1 chip. It features a 10.9" Liquid Retina display with 500 nits of brightness, True Tone support, and an anti-reflective coating. The front screen also houses a new ultrawide front camera with Center Stage, which automatically pans to keep you in view during video calls as you move around, and notices when others join in, smoothly zooming out to include them too. On the back is a 12MP rear camera.
It also offers a USB-C port, which can now transfer data up to 2x speed at up to 10Gbps. Other features include landscape stereo speakers and Touch ID built into the Home button. The Universal Control feature allows you to work with a single mouse and keyboard and move between Mac and iPad for a seamless experience, with no setup required.
The new iPad Air comes in space gray, starlight, pink, purple, and blue finishes. It can be purchased at the following prices:
WiFi only, 64GB storage - RM2,699
