Four years after Steve Jobs debuted the highly-impressive iPad, which was then followed by other iPad models, the recent launch of the iPad Air 2 has got people thinking, 'what change is really in the air'?
Well for starters, the iPad Air 2 posed some serious claims starting with it "being so capable, you won't want to put it down" and as it is "so thin and light, you won't have to", as it says on the Apple website.
So how thin is the iPad Air 2? Well, 18% thinner compared to its predecessor at 6.1mm and incredibly light at only 0.96 pound.
But while the iPad Air 2 boasts of utter mobility, Apple is not a company who would scrimp on features ensuring that it has packed this beautiful creation with equally impressive features.
A better display is to be expected of the iPad Air 2 given the redesigned Retina display. This fuses what had been three layers into one, resulting to a thinner, yet better display as evidence through the more vivid colors and greater contrast. Another highlight of the improved 9.7-inch display is the antireflective coating, which gives the tablet the least reflective display for its kind in the world.
Known for its penchant for minimalist style, Apple packs in the punch by offering massive power for its iPad Air 2 in spite of its minimal form. Users can expect to enjoy 2.5x faster graphics, 64-bit architecture, 40% faster CPU, and up to 10 hours battery life. These are all thanks to the new chip that Apple designed for the iPad Air 2. The A8X delivers substantially better CPU and graphics performance compared to the first iPad Air. Complementing that is the 64-bit desktop class architecture, which makes the tablet as powerful as many personal computers.
Other key add-ons that make the iPad Air 2 distinct from the rest of the tablet pack is Apple's breakthrough Touch ID Technology for the device's password as well as making more secure purchases through the Apple Store. It also carries the new iSight Camera - the best iPad camera to date with advanced features like panorama, time-lapse videos, slo-mo, burst, and timer modes. Facetime is set to get better as well with the improved front-facing FaceTime HD camera with an improved sensor and larger pixels.
So what change is in the air? Many.
