Good & Bad News for iPad Air 4

by birtanpublished on November 9, 2020

Are you guys sitting down for this one are you okay are you breathing how's your heart check the apple watch do an ecg test real quick because we got some new information about the ipad air for today there's some good news some bad news some weird news and i don't really know how to feel about it so without further ado let's begin so we've got a leak on our hands once again remember leaks remember what those are this one is apparently showcasing the paperwork of an unreleased version of the ipad air

Which is showcasing that it's going to look kind of similar to what we've talked about in previous videos a dumbed down version of the 11 inch ipad pro from 2018. though there is something very noticeably different about this ipad in its paperwork and what the text is referring to which is written in spanish but thankfully we have technology now so we can figure out what those words mean because as we all know literally no one on earth speaks spanish but there is no face id sensor on this ipad no in fact there's not even

A home button on this ipad design however there is still touch id and apparently it's embedded in the power button on the top so yeah if you look in really really closely at this paperwork you can see that the power button is a little bit elongated it's longer than the volume buttons which is absolutely different than what we have on our ipad pros today on our ipad pros the power button volume buttons they're the same size so this is a very very minute detail

And also if we take a look at the back of the ipad air in this paperwork there's no flash which means that at first glance a lot of people are thinking oh someone could just take ipad pro paperwork and kind of take some crappy pictures of it post it online and therefore claim it's the ipad air but in reality that icon would not be in the 2018 ipad pro paperwork because of course ipad pros even from 2018 had the flash on the back and what doesn't have the flash on the back well the current

Ipad air 3. so from the get-go let me just say none of this is confirmed it's completely possible that this is fake someone could just make these icons print them out take a picture of them however if this is a fake they did a really good job i must say this is a really really good fake for them to pay attention to that kind of close detail when it comes to the back of the ipad making the camera on the back look like it's flush with the ipad design like apple did with the ipad air 3.

And if we take a close look at the lettering it appears that this of course would be rocking usbc which does also mean apple pencil 2 compatibility which is great also the smart connector is on the back and likely because this is the 11 inch ipad design it's going to be compatible with the magic keyboard case that you can buy with your ipad pro today which if this product does exist it is kind of cool to know that there would finally be like a 500 ipad that you could get the apple pencil get the magic keyboard case

And still be sub 1 000 and still have this really great you know ipad os powered two in one device now when it comes to touch id being on the power button i know it sounds weird and it's very hard to believe but frankly i gotta admit even if this is fake just speculating the idea of adding touch id via the power button that would put a pretty decent gap between where the ipad air sits and where the ipad pro sits as we've talked about the ipad air 4 for

Months now we've always been alluding to the fact that well you can't make the ipad air too good because then no one's going to want to buy the ipad pro so you have to make it bad enough that it's you know an improvement over the air 3 but at the same time not going to butcher the sales of the current ipad pros i don't expect new ipad pros to come out by the end of this year i still think we gotta wait till 2021 for those but there have been new ipad filings in the eurasian database and

John prosser who is very very good at giving us information on when apple's gonna refresh their website and drop new hardware he's saying we should expect new ipads on the second week of september starting around september 7th and typically apple only does website refreshes on monday through wednesday so it's possible we could see this new ipad air 4 between september 7th and september 9th literally just a couple weeks away from now and at the end of the day if apple wanted to preserve the sales of the ipad pro

Not including face id on the ipad air 4 would probably be a pretty good way to do it however this does completely discredit that earlier leak this year that was claiming that air 4 would have touch id built into the display maybe that was a prototype of some kind but this leak does not encourage that at all and it comes from kind of a underrated leaker who goes by the name of dwan ree i apologize if i'm getting that wrong but not that many people have talked about him in the past and i scrolled through some of his older tweets he's actually gotten quite a bit

Accurate in fact before the ipad pros came out he tweeted proof that apple had already updated their website with the new ipads and he even like a month in advance tweeted a photo of the iphone se calling it the iphone 9 back then but it looks to be exactly right like it's the right finish of white and it had the apple logo centered on the back and we never saw it no one ever talked about it it only got like six likes like no one really knows about this guy and yet if you scroll through what he's

Tweeted in the past it all ended up being pretty accurate so i'm kind of inclined to believe this leak it sounds believable to me yes someone could go through all the hard work of making this pamphlet but the fact that even the pieces of paper have the rounded corners and stuff like that i'm just trying to imagine some type of sick psychopath that's trying to get on all of these tech youtubers videos cutting the edges of the paper so that it looks more accurate i mean again not impossible that someone could

Do it but what i will say is what we have learned from this leak of it being again probably a 60 hertz lcd display no face id but touch id on an elongated power button and of course apple pencil 2 compatibility usbc hopefully still quad speakers and when it comes to the cpu that's really kind of the big debate here i could see it going multiple ways but it sounds like something apple would do i'll just be completely honest with you here this sounds like an ipad air 4 that apple would release saying like okay it doesn't have face id that's

Going to be considered a pro feature but you can now have access to these accessories that apple love selling for 300 120 between the pencil and the keyboard and now you've got gesture control so you can swipe up and feel like you're using an ipad pro but not have to spend ipad pro money i kind of believe it i can kind of get behind that it sounds realistic to me it's just we don't really know what the processor will be i've seen some people say the ipad air will get the a14 chip but i have a hard time

Believing that because why would apple release the a14 chip on an ipad air before releasing the iphones iphones are still not rumored to come out until october so that would be somewhat bizarre though i guess there's a lot of firsts in 2020. some people are suggesting it would get the a13 chip which is partially believable because you know it's not quite as good as the a12z when it comes to gpu performance however it would be kind of weird because the a13 chip can

Outperform the a12z in single core performance would apple want a cheaper ipad with a faster processor in certain aspects than the pro ipad i'm not too sure in my opinion it makes the most sense that the air force would have a really really competitive starting price of like 500 bucks but it would still be rocking the a12 chip of the current ipad air because apple has used the same processors on two generations of ipad before and i know a lot of you are thinking the budget ipad 8 is getting the a12 chip soon but the

Truth is if this ipad air leak is real then this ipad air has a whole lot of advantages over that budget ipad besides you know the a12 chip might be the same on this one so you get the gesture control you get the updated design language you get usbc apple pencil 2 keyboard support which does mean using the cursor and trackpad would be a lot easier compared to a budget ipad which will still be rocking the home button the thicker bezels lightning and apple pencil one support so i don't think it'd be the worst thing

In the world if both the budget ipad and the ipad air had the a12 chip we can go around on this subject in circles all day a lot of people think well they must be refreshing the ipad pro really shortly then too i still have a hard time believing that but overall the most disappointing part of this leak is having touch id on the power button it just sounds inconvenient i love the idea of opening up my ipad and it instantly just unlocks because it recognizes my face or when i'm using the keyboard case i

Can just tap the space bar and it looks at me and unlocks it's so much easier and more simple that way and apple's never done touch id on a power button before so that's the only fishy thing about this leak but i guess if you want to adopt ipad pro design language but you don't want to butcher the ipad pro this might be a good way to do it i just hate the idea of having to reach out and touch the side of the ipad every time you want to unlock it especially because when using it with the keyboard

Case it's kind of up in the top left corner of the ipad it doesn't feel ergonomic it doesn't feel convenient so i could totally understand why a lot of you may have been excited for the air for but now after hearing this report you're like well i might just as well go with the 2018 ipad pro at this point save yourself some money get the pro motion display get face id because it's so much easier to unlock i kind of can get behind that so what do you guys think is this league fake or real could apple

Be releasing an air for like this feel free to let me know this is your appleship here i'll see you in the next one
