With the A12 Bionic chip with Apple’s Neural Engine, the new iPad Air delivers a 70 per cent boost in performance and twice the graphics capability, and the advanced Retina display with “True Tone” technology is nearly 20 per cent larger with over half a million more pixels.

The 7.9-inch iPad mini also has the A12 Bionic chip, delivering three times the performance and nine times faster graphics.

The advanced Retina display with True Tone technology and wide colour support is 25 percent brighter and has the highest pixel density of any iPad.

Both the devices have Apple Pencil support.

“The iPad family takes two big leaps forward with an all-new 10.5-inch iPad Air that brings high-end size, features and performance at a breakthrough price, and a major upgrade to the 7.9-inch iPad mini, which also brings Apple Pencil, Retina display and the A12 Bionic chip to the many customers that love its compact size,” informed Phil Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing.
