These are news that make you stare and leave you in disbelief but, apparently, tomorrow a “cheap” iPad Air will be presented that will have all the extreme power contained in an iPad Pro!

A few hours separate us from the next Apple event and last-minute rumors report that the 5th generation iPad Air will mount the Apple Silicon M1 chip , thus managing to offer the same performance as the iPad Pro presented last year!

During the event the third generation iPhone SE , new Mac models but also the new iPad Airshould be announced .

On the latter it was already said that they will support the 5G network but now 9to5mac has come into possession of very interesting information regarding the processor. The iPad Air 5, codenamed J408) will have the same M1processor that Apple used in 2021 on the iPad Pro and first generation Apple Silicon Macs.

In terms of performance, it will achieve something that has never been achieved on the Air. In fact, the M1 chip is 50% faster than the A15 Bionic and 70% faster than the A14 Bionic (mounted on the iPad Air 4). The M1 also offers 8 CPU cores and 7 GPU cores with 8GB of RAM in the lowest configuration of all.

Adding an M1 chip to an iPad Air might seem like a gamble for Apple, as it would “kill” iPad Pro sales, however the company has experienced a drop in sales in the iPad sector and this move, contrary to expectations. , could revive the tablet market. The iPad Pro also has other features, such as the ProMotion screen, larger display and higher configurations that will always make it the tablet of choice for those who need a true “Pro” device.

In addition to all this, by the end of 2022 Apple will present a new iPad Pro even more powerful, probably with M2 chip and therefore the difference between the two devices will be greater again.

If this indiscretion is confirmed, those who have waited for this event before buying an Apple tablet will make a real deal with the new Air 2022!
