The Launch of iPad Air (2024): A New Era for Apple

Apple recently unveiled the latest addition to its lineup, the iPad Air (2024), at the ‘Let Loose’ event in India and global markets. This sixth generation model comes in two variants, with a 10.9-inch and 13-inch display, marking a significant shift for the iPad Air series.

Contrary to earlier expectations of a Mini-LED screen, both versions of the iPad Air (2024) feature a Liquid Retina (LCD) display. The price of the 11-inch model starts at Rs. 59,900 for the Wi-Fi version with 128GB storage, while the Wi-Fi + Cellular model is priced at Rs. 79,990. The 13.9-inch models come in at Rs. 74,900 and Rs. 94,900 respectively, with a 256GB storage option available for both.

Color Variants and Availability

The iPad Air (2024) is offered in Blue, Purple, Space Grey, and Starlight color options, catering to a wide range of preferences. The devices will go on sale globally, including in India, from May 15th, with prices starting at $599 and $799 for the standard and larger display sizes in the US.

Driven by Apple’s octa-core M2 chip, the iPad Air (2024) promises enhanced performance with the inclusion of Apple’s Neural Engine for AI tasks. Apple claims a 15% improvement in CPU performance and 25% in GPU performance over its predecessor, making it 50% faster than the previous model with the M1 chip. The device runs on iPadOS 17 out-of-the-box.

The 11-inch Liquid Retina display boasts a resolution of 2,360×1,640 pixels, similar to the 5th generation model, while the 13-inch option offers a higher resolution of 2,732×2,048 pixels. Both displays feature True Tone support, P3 color gamut coverage, and a peak brightness of 500 nits. The device also comes equipped with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle front camera for selfies and video calls, with features like landscape orientation and Apple’s Center Stage technology for automatic camera adjustments.

Connectivity and Multimedia

The iPad Air (2024) supports Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity, along with 5G network compatibility on Cellular models. It also features GPS/GNSS support and a 12-megapixel wide-angle back camera with 4K video recording capabilities.

The launch of the iPad Air (2024) marks a significant milestone for Apple, showcasing cutting-edge technology and features that cater to the evolving needs of consumers.
