The Apple tablet was introduced 10 years ago, and in that time Apple says it has sold more than 500 million units in that time.
In a September 15 online event, the company revealed the eighth generation iPad, which uses an A12 Bionic chip. With attachable keyboards and the Apple Pencil, the iPad is becoming more of a laptop replacement all the time.
The iPad Air, meanwhile, has been redesigned entirely. The 10.9-inch, all-screen design has a resolution of 2,360 x 1,640 and, like the most recent iPhones, no home button. The TouchID function is now built into the sleep/wake button at the top of the device.
It's also got the A14 Bionic chip, which is new from Apple and is incredibly small, at only five nanometres. It's a six-core chip with a four-core graphical processing unit that delivers improvements in processing speed and graphical performance.
The new iPad Air also uses a USB-C connection, has support for Wi-Fi 6, and includes a faster cellular connection for supporting models. It comes in five colours, including green and blue.
The new iPads will ship with iPadOS14, which introduces Scribble, a new feature for Apple Pencil that lets you integrate handwriting into digital documents by converting your scribble into text.
The eighth-generation iPad starts at $429, $599 with cellular, and the new iPad Air starts at $779, $949 with cellular.
Both tablets are available to order now and will be released on September 18.
