Reliable supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities has published a new report focused squarely on Apple keyboards. Kuo lays out an updated timeline for when he believes Apple will begin using more reliable keyboards in MacBooks.
The new iPad Air was released in March of 2019 alongside the 5th generation iPad mini. It features a 10.5-inch Retina display, A12 Bionic chip, Touch ID, support for the 1st generation Apple Pencil, and support for the Smart Keyboard. In addition to the A12 performance boost, it features a fully laminated True Tone display with 2224×1668 resolution.
In most ways, this device is a direct successor to the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which has been discontinued. It is offered in 64GB or 256GB storage options, and comes in gold, silver, and space gray finishes. However, it does not boast a ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate display or a quad speaker array, like the 10.5-inch iPad Pro had.
Pricing starts at $499 for the base model.
