Apple drops iPad Air in favour of new iPad

 

 

 

 

 

A few years back when Apple launched their latest series of smaller notebooks, they dropped the “Air” in MacBook Air and simply called the new 12-inch model, MacBook. Well, it looks like the same has happened with the iPad Air, as Apple today unveiled a new lower-cost 9.7-inch model simply called iPad.

With the release of the new model for 2017, the new designation will separate it from the iPad Pro models.  The new iPad will feature an upgraded processor, yet remain very similar to the MacBook Air 2 but with a few differences.

It still keeps the same display size as the MacBook Air 2, i.e. 9.7-inches. It will still be an LED backlit, Retina display with multi-touch at 264 PPI and a 2048 x 1536 resolution. It also maintains the 8.0MP rear camera that shoots 1080P HD video, and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing FaceTime HD camera battery-life also remains at 10 hours.  Read full post at Canoe Tech Blog.
