The 2019 iPad Air maintains its lightness while offering more power. Built with Apple’s advanced A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine and a 10.5-inch Retina display with True Tone for speed and comfortable viewing. It’s designed to support the Apple Pencil (1st generation) and Smart Keyboard to give you lots of options to create, edit and interact with rich content.
A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine
The 4-core graphics engine allows you to use multiple apps at once, as well as confidently create, edit and enjoy 3D content and gaming. Augmented reality will look and feel incredible, allowing you to explore a reimaged world.
10.5-inch Retina Display
Enjoy richer colours, greater contrast and sharper, more vivid images. A new anti-reflective coating further reduces possible glare, making it easier to view and interact with content wherever you are. Screen sensitivity has also been improved to ensure faster, more accurate tracking of your gestures.
8MP and 7mp cameras
The main camera with 8-megapixel sensor captures images in 3,264 x 2,448 pixels and videos in Full HD 1080p, ensuring your images stay sharp and clear – perfect for creating AR content. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera with 7-megapixel sensor and ƒ/2.2 aperture delivers great performance, whatever the level of light.
Touch ID security
Touch ID lets you use your fingerprint as your password, letting you unlock your iPad Air or make secure purchases on the App Store, iTunes and iBooks. Your fingerprint information stays on your iPad Air – it’s not shared with anyone, even Apple, helping to ensure that your personal information remains private.
iOS 12 makes it faster to do everyday tasks - for example, swiping to camera is up to 70% faster than previous iPads, and the keyboard displays up to 50% faster than previous models. You can FaceTime with up to 32 people at once, with tiles that automatically expand as people talk. There’s smarter ways to manage notifications and settings, intelligent shortcuts to pair your daily routine with the apps you use, and better privacy management when browsing the web.
Thanks to iOS 12 and iCloud, you can connect your Apple products automatically and make your everyday tasks easier. For example, stream videos from your iPad Air to your television via your Apple TV 4K; everything's synced, so all your devices have the latest information.
Additional information: manufacturers often update their Operating System (OS) software over the course of a device’s lifespan – this means that your product might ship with a more advanced OS than specified.
What is augmented reality?
AR can cleverly merge information and digital objects with the environment around you, directly onto your screen. (If you’ve ever played or seen Pokémon Go, you have experienced AR already.) When looking at your iPad screen, this ingenious technology enables you to see (for example) handy navigation arrows on a street – aiding you towards a set location, or you could view and then shoot virtual aliens as they invade your living room.
iOS12 is compatible with ARKit 2, unlocking more immersive AR experiences for app developers. AR objects can now be sent with Messages and Mail and viewed in the real world, while a new AR app called Measure helps you measure real-world objects just by pointing your camera at them.
