New iPad and iPad Air: Your ultimate guide

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

The iPad 8th generation is an update to the entry-level iPad series from Apple and carries hardware upgrades from its predecessor. It's compatible with the Magic Keyboard and Smart Keyboard, Apple Pencil 2nd-gen, with USB-C and a 12MP camera.

However, knowing that a year ago Apple said the A13 Bionic brought a 20% speed increase across the board over the A12 Bionic, we can estimate the 2020 chipset to have a 17% faster CPU and 8% better GPU than its predecessor. The chip is coupled to a new 16-core Neural Engine which is twice as fast as before.

Following Apple's event that saw the introduction of a new iPad Air, Logitech today announced the launch of the Logitech Folio Touch that's designed for the device.

The new A-series chip features an industry-first 5 nanometer process, allowing for a almost 40% increase in chip transistors. Apple says that the A14 makes it the first to use five nanometer process technology, incredibly small-scale but powerful architecture, with 11.8 billion transistors packed into the chip, up 40% on its previous generation seven nanometer chips.

Top Trump health official apologises for spreading CDC conspiracy theories
He also raised the specter of violence if Trump wins the election , saying: "The drills that you've seen are nothing". Caputo also made a slew of crude and sexist comments toward women in a series of now-deleted tweets.

Arm has positioned itself as a "Switzerland" in the industry, providing its designs to everyone on equal footing, but it has been increasingly taking on a more autonomous role in its chip design over the years, and this A14 is the latest product of that strategy. It's pretty similar to the iPad Pro design, but there's no True Depth front-facing camera for Face ID here. Because the Air is a cheaper tablet, however, the company opted to simply reengineer Touch ID to fit in the power button at the top of the device. Lightning is officially only found on the eighth-gen iPad and iPad Mini.

Appleosophy has obtained the wallpapers from the iPad Air, which you can download below. The iPad Air 2020 gains new abilities that now match up to the new iPad Pro 2020 models. We aren't sure how much of this is down to the new screen and how much to the chipset, but it still bodes well for the battery life of the iPhone 12 lineup.

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. You can get a bit more creative with color options.

So, Which One's Better - iPad Air 4 or iPad (2020)?

We'll circle back once preorders start.
