The Truth about iPad Air 4

by birtanpublished on April 11, 2021

Hey everyone did you know that some people comb their hair I didn't but either way I wanted to talk about the next generation iPad air which rhymes with hair so that is somewhat related because there's a lot of rumors out there spreading about the next generation iPad air for I guess you know Apple won't call it that but we'll call it that a couple of them are realistic and I think most of them are just downright stupid so I had to talk about it yes I've made these types of points before so forgive me if I sound redundant but sometimes if I repeat myself it's because I really want my

Point to get across to Apple who definitely watches every single one of my videos let's begin alright so first off Mecca Dakar is claiming that Apple is working on an 11 inch iPad air successor so that makes sense to me because Apple has been known in the past for introducing new technologies and new designs on to the iPad pro and then later down the road recycling that old iPad Pro design beefing up the internals a little bit but using you know the old traditional design so that you can make what we

Currently have as the iPad air today you know all that really is at ten and a half inch $500 iPad it's basically just a slightly tweaked version of the ten and a half inch iPad pro so what do they do they took off promotion they give it to a 12 chip instead of that a 10x cameras just a tad different but for the most part like the accessories still work with that it supports the same smart connector as that 2017 iPad pro so it makes sense you don't they recycle that old design so when I heard 11 inch iPad air I'm like yeah that makes sense they're probably gonna recycle that old

IPad pro design but then an up-and-coming leaker which has a decent track record but I think a lot of the things they've predicted or because Ming Chico was saying them anyway and they were just kind of repeating what they were hearing it didn't really feel super concrete but left the dream is claiming that not only is Apple working on an 11 inch iPad air but that iPad is going to have a mini LED display thinner bezels than the current iPad pro and no not which an iPad has never had a notch so I'm not sure why but it would also have a fingerprint reader built into the

Display which I'm annoyed that I have to explain how stupid that is to people but as Apple has worked so far which they usually like to keep things fairly simple and straight forward if there's no home button on the device then you have to swipe up to go home and that's why face ID has been adopted across both iPads and iPhones because it's like hey you tap anywhere on the display to wake it up and then you swipe up to go home because you're looking at the device when you tap it you know that's how it unlocks the stupidity of adding touch ID to the iPad

Underneath the display is the iPads kind of meant to be used in multiple orientations and I know we have touch ID on our older iPads already but those have a home button okay so you rest your finger it unlocks and then you press to go home this new process would require a dedicated portion of the display because they're not gonna make the entire screen a fingerprint reader that would be for one really expensive and to probably still slower than face ID because you have to rest your finger there for a while so it can really get a read on you so you'd have to remember every time you

Want to turn on your iPad to rest your finger at a specific place that is not you know backed by a home button anymore so that involves either tapping the display to wake it up resting your finger there and then swiping to go home because for those of you wondering well why doesn't Apple just let you go straight to the home screen as soon as you unlock the device well because they've advertised all of these face ID features which the whole selling point of face ideas like hey you can see you got notifications but the notifications won't reveal any private data until it

Authenticates first and Apple to this day still has no option for biometrics to jump you straight to the home screen because Apple is very Pro lockscreen they want you to be able to see your messages and then go through a very intentional swiping process before you get to the home screen the touch ID on the iPad thing doesn't work it doesn't really make sense so I think they have internal sources I believe that I just think they're hearing about prototypes or products that are definitely not coming out and tweeting about them as if they are coming out because that does

Not sound like something Apple would do with the next generation iPad air if they were doing mini led they would bring it to the iPad pro first and can I also emphasize how annoying it is that so many people see no face ID means no knotch okay just because there's no face ID doesn't mean there's no nuts because you still have a front-facing camera and the iPad pro still has a front-facing microphone right next to that camera so I don't believe it's just like hey the bezels are gonna be even thinner on this one so they have to go with touch ID it's like for one I don't think a touch

ID cents underneath the display would be cheaper in the first place for two I don't think it would be better it would be more complicated to come up with this old you know tap unlock swipe thing versus just what we have on the iPad pros which is tap face ID works and then swipe up to go home when you're ready iPad pro just works in any orientation and the whole point of having a little bit of bezel on the iPad pro is that's where your thumbs can rest if the bezels got much thinner then you would start setting off the display on accident all the time and

It's okay that there's a little bit of puzzle on the iPad because you can incorporate the camera into that so whether or not you have face ID there's got to be room for the camera on the front so that's not going anywhere that's why I didn't buy this whole iPad here doesn't have a notch it's like just because there's no face ID that's not what the iPad air 4 is gonna be I don't believe that rumor at all here's my prediction which I've talked about in the past but I want to reiterate for you today the next generation iPad air which by the way is not coming anytime soon

It'll probably be like the end of this year at the very very soonest like September is my guess this is not a Worldwide Developers Conference product and it's possible that given the pandemic it might not even come out till next year but the last iPad air is over a year old now so I'm sure Apple is working on the follow-up and it makes a whole lot of sense that given iPad pro has been refreshed for 2020 apples not selling the 2018 iPad pro anymore we're in kind of a similar setup that we were for the ten and a half inch iPad pro being recycled into an iPad air so the

11 inch version will just be kind of a recycled version of the 2018 iPad pro so maybe it'll come in a gold option like the north's globe made an awesome concept of seriously though how does he make these things they look really good so what I think apples gonna do and you may not like some of these tech specs but keep in mind you have to make the next iPad air good but at the same time not so good that no one buys the new iPad pros so that's why my guess is that the iPad air 4 will have 60 Hertz display it'll look the same as the 2018 iPad pro but it won't have promotion

It's still gonna have face ID though you know Apple's willing to put face idea on cheaper products like the iPhone 10 are so I think there's reason to believe they can put that on more affordable devices it will still have USB see it will work with the Apple pencil 2 which will be great and it will work with the 2018 iPad pro keyboard accessories with that new smart connector location but you won't get the a 12 X chip because that's still like you know really really fast you'll probably get something like the a 13 you know which is powering the iPhone

See you right now it's really really fast it's not gonna be a 12z fast but it's decent and the cameras I expect to almost stay the same you know the current iPad air has a basic 1080p camera on the front and back this one I would expect the same you don't need to go crazy with the cameras on this one because this iPad is just trying to be enough for most people if you care about the cameras they're gonna want you to go with the iPad Pro which of course now has ultra wide lidar sensor all kinds of cool stuff with it buy this iPad air 4 we'll just have basic 1080p 60fps

Cameras and the biggest one I think a lot of people would be annoyed by but it would be a good reason to opt for the iPad pro instead of the air I think they would not bring the quad stereo speakers which are really really good on the iPad pro it's very very annoying to use an iPad when you only have speakers on one side so maybe there's a way that can dumb down the speaker so that they're still stereo but they're not quad like they are in the iPad pro but there has to be a big differentiating factor there and I think stereo speakers promotion the a 12 Z chip the extra cameras and

Stuff that will make the iPad pro worth the extra $300 but keep in mind the 20/20 iPad pro will have been available for awhile by the time the iPad air 4 drops so it's not gonna be cannibalizing sales that much it'll just be a reasonable more affordable price – iPad that still has a lot of the features people appreciate about the iPad pro and maybe make it a little bit thicker if that saves money then go ahead but yeah don't believe this mini LED report thing or the touch ID is coming underneath the display I could be wrong but it definitely sounds like something Apple

Would not do because when it comes to iPad air in making more affordable iPads it's basically just what's the pro version oh yeah let's make a cheaper version of that which honestly I still think would be really popular if you could spend five hundred bucks on an iPad that looked like an iPad pro and all you were missing out on was lidar dual camera pro motion you know an insanely fast CPU as well as stereo speakers a lot of people would buy that iPad in fact just getting more of the iPad lineup compatible with the Apple pencil 2 would also make people really

Appreciative because the iPad air in its current state you know it's fine it's a decent iPad but it's definitely getting dated now that we've had the updated iPad pro design for nearly two years so I'd love to hear your guys's thoughts on the iPad air 4 what do you think it should be let me know by hitting me up over on Twitter joining my discord we can chat more about it there this is your option here and don't believe everything you read folks the truth is out there see the next one
