Apple has introduced the two new iPad Air tablets and iPad mini in the market. The 10.5-inch and 7.9-inch tablets contain the Apple Bionic A12 chip, which is also on the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR models. In addition, according to the manufacturer, both devices support the Apple Pencil. It should be able to be used in common applications such as Procreate, Notability, and Microsoft Office, and allow for note capture, drawing, document marking, and photo retouching.
Both devices featured a 7-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel rear camera capable of capturing 1080p HD video. Enhanced cameras are designed to work well in low light and provide high resolution photos. The iPad Air and iPad mini run on Apple's iOS 12 operating system. A 3.5mm audio jack and stereo speakers are also on both devices.
