A USB-C Connection
The iPad 8th-gen continues to use the aging Lightning connector for charging. The Air 4, at long last, joins the iPad Pro models in upgrading to USB-C. This is a big hardware improvement; not only is the USB-C connection cable of a better charging experience, but it’s also compatible with lot more potential chargers, and can transfer data much, much faster with a variety of devices. It makes the Air 4 much more versatile and ready for the future.
