iPad Air (2019) vs iPad Air 2 (2014): Everything that’s new

Apple is not known for making a quiet and under the radar announcement of its products. On the contrary, it is known for hosting a big event where it launches and announces its products or services and this has been going on since Jobs headed the Apple’s reins. But yesterday, Apple released its newest model of iPad Air and iPad Mini rather quietly.

The bigger of both the tablets is the iPad Air which comes powered with the latest CPU from Apple — the A12 Bionic chip. The iPad Air also comes with support of Apple Pencil (1st generation) which can be used to write, draw and interact with other applications on the iPad Air. The newly launched iPad Air (2019) is the successor of the iPad Air 2 launched in 2014. Here, we have compared the two devices to see what has changed and what new specifications does the newest iteration of Apple’s iPad Air 2019 model pack:
