Apple quietly announces 10.5-inch iPad Air and refreshed iPad mini

Apple’s online store went dark earlier this morning, and now it’s clear why: The company decided to quietly roll out not one, but two new iPads ahead of its big event next week. The new, larger, 10.5-inch iPad Air will arrive with a 70 percent performance boost compared to its predecessor, thanks to the company’s A12 Bionic chip with Apple’s Neural Engine. That’ll be useful alongside the now 20-percent larger display — which is compatible with the first-gen Apple Pencil too.
