The iPad Air is a 3rd-gen iPad Pro with a better processor and Touch ID at the sleep/wake switch. I hope they're updating the iPad Pro, or there will be no need for one of those.

Yeah, I'm still not annoyed that I got this 3rd Gen Pro recently. The newer processor would have been nice, but I really would rather Face ID over Touch. Given the price, I think I got mine at around what my version would be with cellular and I got the 12.9" too.

I’m so happy we’re seeing some new colors again in Apple hardware! Hard to pick, really.

It is kinda funny no one mentioned those sooner. They stood out to me too... but I like my black coloring. I can be really boring some times.

Can't remember... did the previous version of this model have the iPhone 4 form factor? If not, is this confirmation that the new phones will follow this route? (I mean, we know it WILL....)

I actually went and priced an iPad Air, and compared it to an iPad Pro, which has an older processor. I would want to use a tablet for drawing, so now I wonder if the Air's size would be usable?

Also need to find out if Photoshop for iPad is golden master now....

The iPad Pro's A12X is now outclassed by the iPad Air's A14 (not by a terribly large margin, though), but the Pro still has the better camera system front and back. So it's a tradeoff: Cameras or processor power.

We don’t really have a lot of data on the A14 yet, which I guess is by design; maybe they want to keep some surprises for the iPhone reveal (maybe they’ll show the first ARM Mac?).

All we have is the 40% figure. I think they’re saying the 2019 and 2020 iPads Air both have six cores (two of them high-performance). If so, that’s very much in line with recent generations. Going by single-core numbers, the A11 was 25% faster than the A10; the A12 another 20%; the A13 another 19.6%. A11 to A13 is 43.8%.

So, judging from that, we’re looking at about 17% from A13 to A14. I hope there’s no continuous downward trend in year-over-year improvements here? (There probably is. Also why they’re focusing on coprocessors like the Neural Engine so much.)
