Apple’s September launch event has just taken place via an online live stream and one of the biggest announcements of the night is an all-new iPad Air. This fully refreshed tablet had been rumoured for a while and it seems many of the leaked features have turned out to be true.
Perhaps the biggest upgrade to this hugely popular device is a totally refreshed design which makes it look far more like the premium iPad Pro.
That means users will get a tablet with a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display that pushes closer to the edge of the device plus there’s no sign of the chunky chin or forehead which has graced the older model since it first launched.
Without those bezels, Apple has now placed the Touch ID fingerprint scanner on the top of the Air, as part of the power button, which should make unlocking the screen just as easy as before.
If it’s power you are after then you won’t have any issues with the US firm tucking its all new and blisteringly quick A14 processor under the glass and aluminium shell.
That makes it 40 percent faster than before and there’s also a 30 percent boost to graphics performance.
