Apple iPad Air 4 User Manual Exposure
The new iPad Air has also finally gone with a narrow bezel design, but it appears to have no primary camera, only a single camera on the front, and a single camera on the back, with accessory metal contacts on the bottom.
Today, Weibo blogger has contributed a few photos of the new iPad Air instruction booklet that are suspicious. The new Apple iPad Air 4 user manual has been revealed with a similar design style to the 11-inch iPad Pro (2018). The big surprise is that there will be an integrated Touch ID at the power button location, which is just in the right direction.
These photos show what appears to be a Spanish (?) version of the iPad Air. The iPad Air features ultra-narrow bezels that appear to be wider than the iPad Pro, as well as a single rear lens that supports magnetic contacts. The front also uses a single lens, and there’s no face ID present.
What’s most suspicious is that the tablet’s manual says it supports Touch ID fingerprint touch, but from the few renderings given, there’s no indication of where the Touch ID is located.
Given the material of the iPad Air’s screen, the chances of an off-screen fingerprint are not great, so maybe a sideways solid fingerprint. This is the biggest suspense in this set of images at the moment.
Besides, if the iPad Air is upgraded to a full-screen design, then the appeal to users will increase, while the differentiation of the iPad Pro will also be reduced to some extent, and it is also worth noting where the differences between the two products are reflected. After all, according to this design, the second-generation Apple Pencil and the Myriad keyboard can be ported over.
If you look closely, the power-on button on this page is indeed marked green. If the iPad Air evolved like this, it feels like the iPad Pro screen material evolved to miniLED, and this logic seems to work. Similar to the differences between iPhone 11 and 11 Pro: narrow edges, performance, screen, photography.
