Apple released two new devices on Monday in the form of iPad Air and iPad mini.
"Today's iPad lineup has made two big breakthroughs," the company said in a press release.
Both products feature Apple Pencil and Apple's A12 Bionic chipset, similar to the iPhone XS. Both tablets run iOS 12.1.3.
However, these tablets are different in different ways.
The new iPad Air is now larger than the 9.7-inch iPad, but smaller than the 11-inch iPad Pro, measuring 10.5 inches across the screen. The body is 6.1mm thick and weighs about 450g.
In particular, it supports Apple's smart keyboard, eSIM, and has front-mounted fingerprint sensors.
It also comes with an 8MP rear camera, a 7MP FaceTime camera and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Apple calculated battery life to be 10 hours, but did not reveal how big the power bank really is.
The starting price for iPad Air is $ 499.
The updated iPad mini is described as "Notepad that occupies a place for sketching and taking notes while on the go."
This device, literally a "mini" version of the new iPad Air, supports a 7.9-inch retina display, weighs over 300 grams, and NanoSIM or eSIM.
It is only 6.1mm thick and supports both 3.5mm audio jack, fingerprint sensor and Bluetooth 5.0.
The iPad mini maintains a large sister's 8MP rear camera and 7MP front camera.
The iPad mini starts at $ 399.
Regarding local availability, Apple said India, Russia and Thailand will come to South Africa in the second wave of firing.
Both devices can be purchased in writing in the US, UK, UAE and 24 other markets.
