Quite recently, Apple refreshed its line-up of iPad Air and iPad Mini with two new variants. The 7th Gen, 10.5′ iPad Air and the 5th Gen, 7.9′ iPad Mini. And here is everything you want to know about them.

7th Gen iPad Air 10.5′:

Starting with design, it looks similar to the previous generation models. Meaning, the display is in the 4:3 ratio and ships with huge-bezels and the home button. The display panel used is a retina display. Which means you get a crisp picture and vivid colours. The resolution is  2224x1668px with 264PPI of density.

The display also is laminated. Meaning, there is near to no gap between the glass and the display. And with the implementation of the true-tone technology and the DCI-P3 wide colour support, iPad Air has pretty much good stuff to offer in terms of display.

5th Gen iPad mini 7’9:

Apple, finally, updated the long due iPad mini. It now ships with a 7.9′ display with a resolution of 2048x1536px. Yes, it still a device with the  4:3 ratio and ships with a pixel density of 326PPI. Similar to the iPad Air, it supports the true tone technology and the wide colour support.


The one thing that is common between the variants is the internals. Both the devices use Apple’s A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine and the M12 coprocessor. The devices support the first gen Apple Pencil. They come in 64GB and 256GB variants.

They share the same camera variants too. With a standard 8MP/f2.4 sensor on the rear and a 7MP Camera on the front. Both the cameras are capable to shoot at 1080p. The two variants support Bluetooth 5.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MIMO and support for an e-sim alongside a standard nano sim.
