Is it an iPad Pro? Or is it the new iPad Air? You might find it a little more difficult to tell Apple’s top-end tablet from its less expensive siblings these days. The redesigned Air has taken inspiration from the Pro for its aesthetic, going edge to edge with the 10.9 inch display and an aluminium chassis with rounded corners. It also ditches the TouchID on the bottom of the screen to get rid of the black bezels.

The Air doesn’t have FaceID however; Apple has built the fingerprint sensor into the power button, making it the smallest it has developed to date. It is powered by the A14 Bionic chip, and it even has a few new colours, including blue and green. The new iPad Air goes on sale next month.
