iPad Air 2
A lighter, thinner iPad Air filled to the brim with new features
Though it’s 18% thinner than its predecessor, the iPad Air 2 definitely has more capabilities to offer. A redesigned Retina display, an A8X chip and M8 coprocessor with more processing power, new cameras, and cutting-edge Touch ID technology are just a few of the features you can expect from the iPad Air 2.
New and improved 9.7-inch Retina display
The Retina display on the 2014 iPad Air 2 is made up of three layers combined into one, making for a brighter display that offers greater contrast. The iPad Air 2’s 9.7-inch Retina display is also equipped with antireflective coating, so you can enjoy viewing the same image quality whether you’re using the iPad Air 2 indoors or outdoors.
Powerful CPU and graphics performance
The iPad Air 2 features a new A8X chip and M8 motion coprocessor, so you can expect greater processing and graphics performance from the latest iPad. The A8X chip delivers 40% faster CPU performance than that of its predecessor and graphics that are more than twice as fast. With the A8X chip, the iPad Air 2 is perfectly capable of handling the most graphics-intensive tasks, including video editing, CAD modeling, and gameplay.
The A8X chip is power-efficient, too, making the iPad Air 2’s 10-hour battery life possible.
Flexible data plan options
WiFi + Cellular models of the iPad Air 2 come with the new Apple SIM, which lets you choose from short-term data plans from select carriers in the US and the UK, including AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. This way, you can switch between various data plans whenever you need to and avoid the limitations of long-term data plans.
Dual HD cameras
The iPad Air 2 is equipped with two cameras that let you capture HD photos and videos in stunning clarity. The rear iSight camera comes with an improved sensor and image signal processor, offering more accurate face detection and improved noise reduction. It’s also designed with advanced optics technology, so it’s perfectly capable of capturing vibrant, sharp photos and 1080p HD videos.
The front-facing FaceTime HD camera, on the other hand, features a new sensor that ensures that even low-light environments won’t get in the way of your video calls.
Security and convenience through Touch ID
With Touch ID technology, unlocking your iPad Air 2 is more secure and more convenient than ever. All it takes is putting your finger on the iPad Air 2’s fingerprint identity sensor. Your iPad Air 2 will recognize your finger no matter how you’re holding your iPad, thanks to its 360-degree readability.
