Apple said the iPad Air would come in two sizes: an 11-inch size, which matches older models, and a larger 13-inch model. Both are equipped with Apple’s M2 chip. The smallest iPad costs $599 for 128GB of storage, and the largest iPad starts at $799.

Apple also moved the front camera to the longer side of the device – in landscape mode – to improve video conferencing, matching Apple’s more expensive iPad Pro models.

These are the first new iPad models that Apple has launched since October 2022, the longest period that Apple has gone without updating the product line since its launch in 2011. The iPad Air, the model from Apple, was last updated in March 2022, and is available in a variety of colors, including blue, purple, and gold.

It will be available in stores next week.

“This is the biggest day for iPad since its introduction,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook.
