Is the new iPad Air going to be your companion this year? With those lovely colors you can choose from, we bet it will be! We personally like the Green and Sky Blue variant. Lovely colors!

Another question we have in mind: did Apple just made iPad Pro obsolete? With its almost identical specs and newer colors, we think a lot will consider getting this instead of the iPad Pro.

Will the iPad Air going to take over the iPad Pro? Let us know what you think!
