Apple's Spring event is mere hours away where the company will announce a boatload of new products including the iPad Air 5. We are now hearing that the iPad Air 5 will feature Apple's custom M1 chip coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage capacity. If this is true, the gap between Apple's iPad Pro models and the iPad Air would weaken. Scroll down to read more details on the subject.
iPad Air 5 Rumored to House Apple's M1 Chip Coupled With 8GB of RAM and 128GB Storage
The news was shared in a post on the Korean blog Naver by "yeux1122", suggesting that the iPad Air 5 will come with an M1 chip and 8GB of RAM. Other than this, the upcoming iPad Air 5 is rumored to feature 128GB of storage for the baseline model instead of 64GB. Despite double the amount of storage and enhanced processing power, the iPad Air 5 is expected to be priced the same at $599.
Previously, reports have suggested that the upcoming iPad Air will house Apple's A15 Bionic chip with 5G connectivity. It would feature the same processor as the iPad mini 6. If Apple goes ahead with an M1 chip inside the iPad Air 5, the gap with "Pro" models would be reduced. The M1 chip features an 8-core CPU and a 7-8-core GPU. In contrast, the A15 Bionic chip features a 6-core CPU and 5-core GPU. What this means is that the M1 chip in the iPad Air 5 would be miles ahead when it comes to processing power.
