Key features of the new iPad Air and Apple Watch
Shortly before the upcoming Apple presentation, network informants have already revealed almost all the details of the event program. Following the renderings and price of the AirTag search beacon, details became known about two new iPad tablet models, as well as about Apple Watch branded smartwatches, one of the modifications of which will be positioned as a budget solution similar to the iPhone SE smartphone line.
According to the authoritative informant Evan Blass, the fourth-generation iPad Air will be built on the basis of the new Apple A14 processor. The same chip is attributed to the iPhone 12 line. In addition, the gadget will get a USB Type-C port instead of the proprietary Lightning. The insider claims that during the event, the eighth-generation base series tablet will also be presented, which will receive a more affordable A12X Bionic processor.
It is noteworthy that Blass points to the old S4 mobile platform as the chip model for the Apple Watch Series 6. Given that the fifth-generation smartwatch is based on the S5, you should not rule out a typo. According to the source, the gadget will be presented in two sizes, and both versions will be presented with Bluetooth or LTE to choose from. The same options will get the more affordable Apple Watch SE. Other characteristics and prices of new products are not reported.
Apple's online event will take place today at 8:00 p.m. ET.
