Apple iPad Air updated with A14 Bionic chip

Apple has updated the iPad Air at the “Time Flies” event yesterday. The iPad Air features a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with a resolution of 2360 x 1640 pixels. Apple has changed the position of Touch ID. It has moved the Touch ID on top and now it also features a fingerprint sensor. Design-wise, it is almost similar to previous-generation iPad Air. But last year’s device has thicker bezels, but the new device has very thin bezels across the display.
