Logitech Announces Folio Touch Keyboard With Trackpad For New iPad Air

Entry-level iPad updated with faster A12 Bionic chip, 20W charger now included

Entry-level iPad updated with faster A12 Bionic chip, 20W charger now included

At the Apple event on Tuesday we got some new iPad announcements. Packed inside the device is Apple's latest iteration of its custom silicon, the all-new A14 Bionic processor. The new software update includes plenty of upgrades for Apple Pencil (side note: the second-gen Pencil with its magnetic side is compatible with the new Air), new widgets for the home screen, tweaks to how apps are laid out, a new universal search field, and various UI changes.

The best news? Apple's eighth-gen iPad keeps the same $329 price and comes in Space Gray, gold or silver. And for the first time, Neural Engine is arriving in tow with the A12 Bionic chip.

The one we've been waiting for: After two years of no updates, the iPad Air is getting a full redesign.

And it is that the new light Apple tablet does not have a Home button, although it does have TouchID integrated into the power button on the top. And yes, this is the chip that's normally saved for new iPhones, but those aren't here just yet. Pretty mind-blowing stuff. There are 11.8 billion transistors inside the A14 Bionic. The company also confirmed that the all-new iPadOS 14 will officially begin rolling out tomorrow for all users, which of course comes preloaded on these new tablets. However the new slate has a 28.6Wh battery compared to the 30.8Wh pack on last year's model, suggesting 8% lower power draw. It's pretty similar to the iPad Pro design, but there's no True Depth front-facing camera for Face ID here. The Folio Touch for iPad Air appears to be identical to the Folio Touch for iPad Pro, with the exception of a smaller camera cutout, a power button cutout to allow for Touch ID, and being fitted to the iPad Air, which measures in at 10.9 inches. The iPad Air 2020 gains new abilities that now match up to the new iPad Pro 2020 models.

The fourth-generation iPad Air is by far the most well-equipped in terms of taking photos or recording videos, even if the 8th-gen iPad is not too bad either (especially the rear camera). If you bought the iPad Pro yesterday, you have our deepest sympathies. You'll get stereo audio on the iPad Air.

If your goal is to have as much screen real estate as possible, then the iPad Air 4 is the clear victor in this regard, especially since the bezels are much thinner. That gets you 64GB of storage. We'll circle back once preorders start.
