How much does the new iPad Air cost in Australia

New iPad Air from is the newest tablet now available at Apple stores in Australia. Apple’s fourth-generation iPad Air takes its cues from the iPad Pro and looks a hell  of a lot sharper (and feature-rich) than its predecessor as a result. The new tablet boasts a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with True Tone and slimmer bezels, a quad-speaker setup, a USB-C port for charging and an A14 Bionic processor.

The new iPad Air does, however, lack the Face ID biometrics found in Apple’s pro-grade tablet. Instead, Apple have opted for a fingerprint sensor built into the power button. So long as that’s a downgrade you’re willing to live with though, there’s a lot to like here.
