INTRO: We have seen quite a lot of leaks regarding upcoming iPads. Famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said that Apple will be releasing a larger, 10.8-inch iPad Air this year. Now, a replacement leak suggests that the upcoming iPad Air will have an iPad Pro like design, and a USB-C port else .
Apple iPad Air 4’s instruction leaflet Leaked
The leak comes from Twitter user DuanRui who shared images of what they claim is that the iPad Air 4’s instruction leaflet. According to these images, the iPad Air 4 will accompany an entire redesign, with thin bezels round the side. You know, just like the iPad Pro. Moreover, the pamphlet mentions that the iPad Air will use USB-C for connectivity rather than Lightning. That’s a good step if it’s true, because USB-C offers far more flexibility than Lightning does. Other details mentioned in the pamphlet indicate that the iPad Air will not use Face ID, but will feature a fingerprint scanner in the power button.
It goes without saying that there’s no evidence to suggest that these images aren’t simply created with Photoshop. As such, it’s best to take this information with a pinch of salt. However, Apple redesigning the iPad Air might be an honest thing for the corporate . After all, the iPad Air sits between the iPad and therefore the iPad Pro, but doesn’t look all that different initially glance. With a design change, and a more desirable USB-C port, the iPad Air could make some potential iPad buyers want to spend the additional cash.
