5G mmWave is a hard and new technology that most importantly many countries do not have the operational network yet, that's why only the US, South Korea, and Japan will be getting the mmWave model.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max performance test, which is the biggest member of the new smartphone family, which Apple did not promote at the September event, created great disappointment among users.


Featuring a larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with 3.8 million pixels and advanced technologies, including full lamination, P3 wide colour support, True Tone, and an anti-reflective coating for an awesome visual experience. It has been revealed that the A14 Bionic chipset will not be as powerful as predicted.

A14 Bionic is said to be packed with 11.8 billion transistors for increased performance and power efficiency in almost every part of the chip. It comes with a six-core CPU and quad-core GPU, but oddly enough Apple chose to compare its performance numbers to the A12 rather than last year's A13, quoting 40% CPU improvement and 30% boost in graphics. A14 Bionic also includes second-generation machine learning accelerators in the CPU for 10 times faster machine learning calculations.


The new iPad Air does, however, lack the Face ID biometrics found in Apple's pro-grade tablet. IPad OS 14 is used as a software platform. The colour gamut aims for accuracy and attention to the finest detail when editing videos, raw format photographs or illustrations, while the enhanced CPU and GPU combine to render final visuals quickly and seamlessly.

Apple today officially unveiled the cheap iPad 8.


In Australia, pricing for the new iPad Air starts at AU$899 for the Wi-Fi enabled model and AU$1099 for the cellular variant. The device will be offered in three colors (silver, dark gray, and gold) and two memory versions - 32 and 128 GB.
