Which means USB-C on the iPhone 12.
Which means price cuts on lightning add-ons!

perhaps.

Unthrilled about its $100 price jump and lack of 120 mhz screen. The Air has never really gone on "sale" for more than $20 or so off.

Bet I can get an 11" pro on sale for $650.

new iPad and mini still use lighting. And even tho the 12 might get C across the line... Im sure they will still offer 11s for sale (maybe still Xr) and of course the SE.

expect new iPads for $249 for the holiday...

I do not expect USBC on the iP12, and it would be a shame for Apple to stick to Lightning on the new 5G phones.

Simplest way ever to distinguish would be all LTE etc iPhones = lightning.

I've always been confused about what makes an "iPad Air" an "Air". Apple's first product to use "Air" was the MacBook Air and it was supposed to mean Thin and Light.

The iPad Air is 9.74" x 7.0" x 0.24" and weighs 1.00 lbs.
The regular iPad is 9.80" x 6.8" x 0.29" and weighs 1.08 lbs.

Are these tiny differences in dimensions and weights a significant selling point?

The laminated screen on the Air has been the key distinguishing for me, not the slightly smaller form factor.

I agree that it is a bit confusing.
