New iPad Air and Mac coming
Alongside the affordable iPhone, the Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to launch a new iPad Air model. This will succeed the 2020 iPad Air model and bring significant upgrades in terms of design, performance, battery, and much more.
As per reports, the iPad Air 2022 will be include features such as – A15 Bionic, a 10.9-inch screen, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide front camera, and more. It is expected to arrive in funky colour options.
Apple is also expected to introduce a new Mac, which could be either the Mac mini or a higher-end iMac. The new Mac is said to be a part of Apple’s transition from Intel to its own chips and be powered by the M1 Pro chip.
