Apple's latest iPad Air 4 is available for pre-order in South Africa through the iStore. The devices can be physically purchased in store on Friday, October 23.

The iPad Air 4 was showcased at Apple's September event alongside the entry-level iPad 10.2 (2020), the Apple Watch 6 and Apple Watch SE

This is the fourth generation of Apple's mid-range 'iPad Air' line, and it's a family Apple didn't seem to know what to do with, as the iPad Air 3 was just a bigger version of the entry-level iPad in many ways. 

The iPad Air 4 has loads in common with the iPad Pro (2020) models, so it seems Apple has a plan for the Airs.


The iPad Air 4 is more colourful than past devices. It can be purchased in silver, space grey, rose gold, green, and sky blue.

The iPad features 10.9-inch display, a Touch ID sensor and a powerful A14 Bionic chip, making it the most powerful iPad to date. 

The front-facing 7MP camera and 12MP rear-facing camera, which can capture 4K video, give other smart devices a run for their money in terms of  their photography capabilities. 

The iPad comes in either 64GB or 256GB on-board storage capacity.
