The iPad Air was unveiled by Apple in its September event along with the Watch Series 6, Apple Watch SE, and iPad Eighth generation. Although, the iPad is still not available to buy and Apple said to make it available at some time in October.
A new FCC (Federal Communications Commission) filing reveals that the new iPad is approved to go on sale in the United States. FCC approval is a must before selling the hardware that includes any kind of radio signals including LTE.
Leaker Jon Prosser believes that iPad Air will be available for pre-order from October 16 earlier than its retail availability on October 23. Best Buy has also listed the iPad Air along with the launch date.
Aaaaand there it is.
Best Buy Canada has the iPad Air listed, along with the launch date 😉
