What you need to know
- Apple's iPad Air 4 should be released very soon.
- Best Buy has listed the device with a release date of October 23.
- That's the same date suggested by leaker Jon Prosser.
Best Buy has listed the iPad Air 4 with a release date of October 23, seemingly confirming previous rumors about the device's availability.
Jon Prosser was tipped off earlier this morning about a listing for the new device with a release date of October 23, 2020.
The reveal corroborates with Jon Prosser's own most-recent information claiming the iPad Air 4 will be made available to pre-order on October 16, with a release date the following Friday, October 23. We had previously heard rumors this timeline would be announced at the iPhone 12 event earlier this week, although that particular rumor didn't materialize.
Best Buy has since updated the listing, removing the listed date from its website. Apple's own website denotes 'October', meaning Apple has just a few more days left to announce the iPad Air. All the signs now suggest the launch is imminent.
Apple's new iPad Air will feature an all-new redesign similar to the iPad Pro, Apple's A14 processor, Touch ID in the top button, and more. From Apple:
Apple today introduced an all-new iPad Air — the most powerful, versatile, and colorful iPad Air ever. Now available in five gorgeous finishes, iPad Air features an all-screen design with a larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, camera and audio upgrades, a new integrated Touch ID sensor in the top button, and the powerful A14 Bionic for a massive boost in performance, making this by far the most powerful and capable iPad Air ever made. The new iPad Air will be available starting next month.
