The tech giant also said the new hardware that the iPad Pro has built into it will make the device "outrageously powerful" for artificial intelligence uses. 

As for the new iPad Air, Apple Vice President of Product Marketing said it "is more powerful and versatile than ever," citing its "combination of a brilliant Liquid Retina display, the phenomenal performance of the M2 chip, incredible AI capabilities, and its colorful, portable design with support for new accessories."

Another major change the tech giant made to the iPad Air is switching the location of the front-facing camera. It will now be on the "landscape edge" of the device, the company said.

The soon-to-be released iPad Air is also almost 50% quicker than the older, M1-equipped version of the iPad Air thanks to its M2 chip and improved memory bandwidth, per Apple.

Apple started accepting orders for the tablets on Tuesday ahead of their expected May 15 debut in stores.
