The new iPad Air is based upon a 10.5-inch screen, up from the Air 2's 9.7 inch display.
Apple iPad mini and iPad Air accessories For those unaware, the Apple Pencil (1st generation) is available for purchase separately for Rs 8,500. Some reports also suggest that Apple may introduce new updates to its iPad and iMac line-up.

He also clarified in a separate post that player and Battle Pass levels "are completely independent and don't impact each other". Although your battle pass level is separate from your player level, they are both increased by playing matches and earning XP.

Apple is bringing back the iPad Air to further expand the iPad line-up. The iPad Mini screen has a 7.9-inch diagonal, and offers 2048-by-1536 resolution for 326ppi. This tablet replaces the iPad Mini 4, which has been on sale continuously since 2015, and is now showing its age. Both also use the first-generation Apple Pencil and not the updated 2018 model. Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has previously predicted that, too, will finally be ready for a release early this year.
The iPad mini now supports the Apple Pencil for the first time ever, making it the smallest device to be Pencil-compatible.

The camera optics follow the same path as the iPad Mini and, like its stablemate, there is no FaceID for the iPad Air, just TouchID.
The move means that pretty much every iPad now has a stylus option - an event that, thankfully, Saint Jobs is not alive to see. The new iPad Air lacks the 512GB option, but that was always an expensive, but useful, option for those wanting to use the Pro 10.5 in a professional capacity.
