iPad Air 6th Gen Revealed: M2 Processor, 128GB Storage

After a delayed launch as well as numerous leaks and speculations, Apple has officially introduced the next-generation iPad Pro and iPad Air tablets during the Let Loose event. The new iPad Pro boasts significant enhancements compared to its predecessor and likely surpasses the 2018 iPad Pro models in terms of features and capabilities. On the other hand, the iPad Air 6th Gen emerges as the successor to the two-year-old iPad Air 5th Gen that initially debuted back in 2022. These latest offerings bring essential upgrades and a slightly refreshed design, introducing a new 13-inch display size variant alongside the standard 11-inch model. Let's delve into the features offered by the iPad Air 6th Gen.

iPad Air 6th Gen Unveiled

Apple is introducing a larger 13-inch model alongside the standard 11-inch variant with the iPad Air 6th Gen. Both models feature a Liquid Retina IPS LCD display, with the 13-inch version sporting a resolution of 2732×2048 pixels and a peak brightness of 600 nits.

The iPad Air 6th Gen maintains the overall design of its predecessor, featuring a flat frame, a Touch ID button at the top, and volume rocker keys on the right side. One noticeable alteration is the relocation of the front camera sensor to the right side when the tablet is held in landscape mode. The Apple Pencil stylus remains magnetically attachable on the right side of the tablet. Additionally, the latest iPad Air will support the newly announced Pencil Pro, along with the Pencil Hover feature previously exclusive to the Pro models.

Both variants now come with a base storage configuration of 128GB, an increase from the previous generation. The tablet supports WiFi-6E and 5G connectivity for enhanced performance and connectivity options.
