The Japanese website MacOtakara, which often broke the news, made another effort yesterday, saying that the fifth-generation iPad Air will be released together with the iPhone SE 2022 at Apple’s spring conference this year. MacOtakara said that the overall design of the iPad Air 5 will be similar to the previous generation released in October 2020, mainly due to the adjustment and upgrade of hardware specifications.
The news indicates that the iPad Air 5 will continue to use a 10.9-inch screen and a narrow bezel design, integrate Touch ID into the power button, continue to be equipped with a single-lens camera on the back, and have a USB-C port. The upgraded parts include the use of the A15 Bionic processor, a front-facing 12MP ultra-wide-angle selfie lens that supports the Center Stage function, a Quad-LED True Tone flash, and a 5G version will be available for the first time.
MacOtakara’s revelations are generally not accurate. Although it has been accurately predicted that the iPad Air 4 will have USB-C and the 12.9-inch version will be thicker due to the use of mini-LED, it has also said that the new AirPods Pro will be launched in April last year, but it was not realized in the end. . If the current revelations are true, the iPad Air 5 is expected to be released around March or April.
