Apple has quietly announced two new iPad models, the third generation 10.5-inch iPad Air and the fifth generation 7.9-inch iPad mini.
The new iPad Air has a brand new 10.5-inch Retina display with a 4:3 aspect ratio. It has a resolution of 2224x1668px with a density of 264PPI. The display is laminated to the glass, similar to that of the iPad Air 2 and Pro models but unlike the regular 6th generation iPad. It also features True Tone technology and DCI-P3 wide color support.
Meanwhile, the smaller iPad mini has a 7.9-inch 4:3 display with a resolution of 2048x1536px and at 326PPI this is the highest density of any iPad model. This display is also laminated and supports True Tone and wide color.
Apart from that, the two new iPad models are nearly identical. Both run on the Apple A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine and embedded M12 coprocessor. Both come in 64GB and 256GB storage capacities, with optional cellular support. Both support the first generation Apple Pencil.
