CALIFORNIA: Apple is long rumoured to be working on a cheaper variant of its current iPad (6th generation). If latest reports are to be believed, the next-gen iPad is likely to retain the Touch ID and the conventional headphone jack.

As reported by Mac Otakara, the 7th-generation iPad will remain same as its predecessor in terms of the design language, except that it will continue to feature the 3.5mm headphone jack and the Touch ID for biometric authentication.

Given the possibility of the Touch ID and headphone jack, the purported 7th-gen iPad is unlikely to sport thinner bezels and continue with a 9.7-inch display size. The 7th-gen iPad is likely to be announced alongside the iPad mini 5.

The 9.7-inch iPad (6th generation) is currently the cheapest iPad supporting the Apple Pencil.

The All-New MacBook Air

30 Oct, 2018
Seven years after it first introduced the MacBook Air, Apple has given the device a major upgrade. The new version of the MacBook Air now comes with a Retina display and TouchID. Weighing 2.75 pounds, it has 8GB memory and 128GB of internal storage, a 13.3-inch screen, two USB-C ports, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It is powered by Apple's secure computing chip, T2. It is the most-affordable Mac, and comes in three finishes – black, grey and gold. Priced at $1199, it can be ordered starting today and will be available next week. The Cupertino-based tech giant is also going green with the new MacBook Air that is made of 100% recycled aluminum. (Image: Reuters)
