So before it even hits the shelves, let us take the time to compare it first with the most recent Apple tablet before it which is the iPad 4.
iPad Air vs iPad 4: Design
The iPad Air is about 20 per cent thinner with its new measure at 7.5mm thin. It is considered the lightest tablet at 10 inches, but its weight at 1 pound is just a bit lighter than the iPad 4. The Air has edges that are round and side bezels that are slimmer making it look as if it is a bigger version of the iPad Mini.
The iPad Air has the latest iOS 7, but the iPad 4 can be upgraded to it. This is actually the first major upgrade when it comes to their operating system since the very first iPhone version was announced by the tech giant, The Inquirer reports. Among its big improvements include the Quick Settings menu, the new design of the camera interface, new email look and even the improved lock screen look.
iPad Air vs iPad 4: Processor and the Rest of the Specs
When it comes to the camera, the iPad Air has the same as the 4th gen at 1.2MP. However, the presence of the A7 chip in the newest iPad can help image processing turn out faster., PC Pro UK reports.
iPad Air vs iPad 4: The Verdict on Whether You Should Upgrade
If you are a totally new Apple iPad user, then it is best to get the latest iPad Air. However, if you are already an iPad 4 user, then you can stay close to what you have and just shoot for an upgrade when it comes to its new iOS 7.
