Wait for 5G Support
There's a good chance the next iPad Air is powered by 5G.
With the launch of the iPhone 12 series, Apple has finally joined the 5G world. So it should come as no surprise to learn that the company will likely install 5G support on the iPad line.
In a recent note, Ming-Chi Kuo states that Apple's iPad series will continue to draw attention in 2021 thanks to mini-LED displays and 5G connectivity.
If the iPad Pro line gets access to 5G connectivity, we suspect other iPad models like the Mini and Air will as well.
So if you're interested in a 5G iPad Air, consider waiting.
