iPad Air 5 may offer M1 chip and more RAM and storage for same price
If you still have an appetite for some more Apple March event leaks, lanzk, who often posts on the South Korean site Naver and has got some leaks right in the past, is back with some information about the iPad Air 5 that Apple will likely announce today alongside the iPhone SE and maybe some new Macs (via MacRumors).
The M1 chip is nearly 50 percent more powerful than the A15 and an impressive 70 percent faster than the A14 that fuels the current iPad Air model that came out in 2020. The M1 boasts an 8-core CPU and 7-core GPU, as opposed to A15’s 6-core CPU and 5-core GPU, and has 8GB of RAM in its lowest configuration.
Per earlier reports, the new model will look the same as its predecessor and may also offer the same display resolution. It is expected to get a better front camera with Center Stage support and optional 5G connectivity.
