The iPad Air shipment has started to arrive in the Apple retail stores in the global market and it will be available for sale later this month.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has claimed that Apple retail stores across the world have started to receive new devices from Apple. These new devices are the iPad Air’s which are likely to go on sale at some time in October.
Shipments of new devices have started landing at Apple stores for opening at a later date — likely the iPad Airs going on sale this month. Too early for the iPhones.

Apple will unveil new iPhones at the upcoming event on October 13 powered by the new 5nm A14 Bionic, same as the iPad Air. Apple didn’t want the benchmark of its new A14 Bionic to be leaked before the iPhone 12 goes official. This might be the reason why the new iPads are not available for sale at the moment.
But the benchmark for the new iPad is leaked anyway and now we are aware of the great performance that the A14 is capable of.
Meanwhile, there’s no official date available for the sales of new iPads but we can expect this new Apple tablet to be marketed after October 13 alongside the iPhone 12 series.
