Its design, almost identical to the previous iPad Pro, ditches both the curved edges and Lightning port in favor of the much-desired USB-C port, along with support for the newest version of the Apple Pencil, as well as a smart connector on the back that works with the trackpad-equipped Magic Keyboard originally made for the iPad Pro. There's a USB-C port for charging, too, and Apple includes a 20W USB-C power adapter in the box. And just like the iPad Pro, you can magnetically attach the Apple Pencil to the side of the iPad Air to recharge it.

Coming to the tablet itself, Apple has gone for a new design.

Spotify, which is pursuing an antitrust case against Apple in the European Union and has spoken with U.S. authorities probing the iPhone maker, charges $US10 a month for its streaming service that competes with Apple but will not be eligible for Apple's bundle.

The new hexa-core processor has 11.8 billion transistors and boasts a 40% improvement in CPU performance and a 30% increase in GPU performance. There is support for the 2nd gen Apple Pencil, Smart Keyboard Folio, and the Apple Magic Keyboard. Despite its resemblance in both features and design to the iPad Pro, the new iPad Air will start at a comparatively reasonable $599, and launch next month. To add news, the fitness service and more storage would cost $US30 per month.

While Apple Watch SE lacks some of the hardware components needed for things like measuring the blood's oxygen saturation, it packs a dual-core S5 chip that makes it twice as fast as Apple Watch Series 3, fall detection, and a swim-proof design. It's available in five colors, including pastel-shaded pink, blue, and green.

The tablet will ship with iPadOS 14.

The Nikkei had reported in late March that Apple was preparing to possibly delay the launch of its first 5G iPhones. There is also shape recognition which means your circle which doesn't look anything like one can become a ideal one.

The budget Apple Watch is better than ever.

Other features of this new iPad include a 10.2-inch 2160×1620 screen, 8MP rear and 1.2MP front cameras, a Touch ID fingerprint reader built into the Home button, and stereo speakers. You can order this Watch and the Apple Watch Series 6 starting today, with availability on Friday. It is priced at $329 for the 32GB Wi-Fi version and $459 for the LTE version. The tablet is available in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold.
