Did the new iPad Air 4 just make the iPad Pro irrelevant?

If you were holding your breath for Apple to reveal the iPhone 12 during last night's 'Time Flies' online event, you were no doubt a touch disappointed. Indeed, thanks to Covid-19, it seems we'll have to wait a little longer for Apple's latest smartphone to drop. What the company did reveal were two new Apple Watches and iPads – and it's one of the latter that left us seriously impressed.

While the new base-level iPad is basically an updated chip inside the same old design (yawn), the 4th generation iPad Air is looking like a truly exciting update for creatives. With a similar all-screen design to the 2020 iPad Pro, and internals that sound potentially even better, could the new Air actually out-pro the Pro? If so, it could be heading straight for our list of the best drawing tablets.
