Supposed iPad Air 4 guide reveals new full-screen display, Touch ID power button, and more
Posts shared to Chinese social media platform Xiaohongshu claim to show what appear to be the instructions for Apple’s unreleased iPad Air 4, suggesting the new device will feature a full-screen display, Touch ID power button, USB-C, and more.
Reposted by @DuanRui on Twitter, the Spanish-language guide instructs users to activate “Touch ID with the top button to unlock the iPad Air,” with the device appearing to have a larger power button to accommodate the new Touch ID sensor.
The guide shows a Smart Connector on the rear of the device for a Magic Keyboard and other compatible accessories to connect, as well as references to USB-C connectivity rather than through Lightning.
Yesterday it was reported that Apple had filed several new iPad models in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database, suggesting we may see a release in the coming weeks.

Profound leaker Jon Prosser has previously claimed Apple will release new iPad and Apple Watch models in the second week of September through a press release on Apple.com, with reports claiming we may also see an updated iPad Pro, possibly with 5G cellular.
