Which Color iPad Air 2019 Should You Buy 4

The rumors about the upcoming 16-inch MacBook Pro keeps trickling in. The latest report by Economic Daily News mentions that the new MacBook Pro will enter production only in the last quarter of this year.

The supply chain report also mentions that Apple is all set to mass produce 10.2-inch iPad and the upcoming iPad is expected to replace the 2018 iPad.

Earlier this year Apple launched a 10.5-inch iPad Air at $499. The rumor mills predicted a 10.2-inch and the 10.5-inch display took many by surprise. However leakster Coiiiiiin had said that Apple is likely to release two iPad Air variants, one with a 10.5-inch display and the other one with a 10.2-inch display. However, he also added that both devices might be launched separately. Coiiiiin’s report falls in line with the latest one.

At this point in time, we are not sure as to what new features the iPad will herald with. It is worth noting that iPad Air is an entry-level device and is not likely to come with a major hardware update. That being said, the new iPad might come with a smaller footprint and slimmer bezels.

In the latest report by Ming-Chi Kuo, he says that Apple will be rolling out a new keyboard design based on scissor switches. This is set to solve Appleā€™s keyboard issues once and forever. The 16-inch MacBook Pro is expected to come equipped with a Liquid Retina display with ProMotion feature. Needless to say, the new MacBook Pro will be powered by the latest-gen Intel chips.
