Why doesn’t iPad Air 2019 have usb-c connector and Apple pen 2nd gen support?
Generally I don’t like Apple products because they’re overpriced and Apple has a really shitty attitude towards device repairing. But I have to admit that when it comes to tablets, there’s nothing on the market that comes close to iPads. So when the iPad Air 2019 was announced I was really looking forward to buying this device. It was a quality product at a reasonable price but then I found out that it would have ~~micro usb~~ lightning connector instead of usb-c and Apple pen 1st gen instead of the 2nd gen, because presumably those are “iPad Pro features”.
So I am genuinely curious how much more would it have cost per device to offer these “features” to iPad Air 2019?
