The pre-sale has begun. On Monday, 18 March 2019, Apple presented its iPad Air and iPad mini tablets. Equipped with Apple's most powerful processor, both tablets significantly more powerful than their predecessors – and they’re compatible with the 1st generation Apple Pencil. The official sales launch is on 26 March 2019 at 8 a.m. Don’t like waiting? Place your pre-order now.
