Thinner, lighter, better
Not just a thinner display. A better display.
The astonishingly thin iPad Air 2 was achieved by redesigning the Retina display, fusing what had been three layers into one. Not only does this make the display thinner, it makes it better, with more vivid colours and greater contrast. An anti-reflective coating was then added, giving iPad Air 2 the least reflective display of any tablet in the world.
As powerful as a PC
Not only is iPad Air 2 thinner, it’s also a lot more powerful. The newly designed A8X chip delivers substantially better CPU and graphics performance than its predecessor. In fact, with its 64-bit desktop-class architecture, iPad Air 2 is as powerful as many personal computers. It’s power efficient too, with a 10-hour battery life that lets you work, play, surf and shop all day long.
Security at your fingertips (literally)
iPad Air 2 comes with Touch ID technology. It gives you an unprecedented level of security because it uses nature’s most perfect password: your fingerprint. So with just one touch, you can instantly unlock your iPad Air 2. But Touch ID goes beyond that. You can also make secure purchases in iTunes, iBooks and the App Store.
Two amazing cameras
The new iSight camera is the best iPad camera yet, with advanced optics, an improved sensor and a powerful image signal processor. There are new features like panorama, time-lapse videos, slo-mo, and burst and timer modes. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera has been redesigned too, with an improved sensor and larger pixels for even better low-light performance. The upshot? All your photos and videos — and video calls and selfies — look incredible.
Wi‑Fi on iPad Air 2 is fast — more than twice as fast as the previous generation — so downloading films and streaming videos take less time. And the Wi‑Fi + Cellular model is equipped with faster, more advanced 4G LTE technology. In addition, the cellular model lets you choose from a variety of carriers and flexible short-term plans. So you can make fast connections, even when you’re on the go.
Apps designed for iPad
iPad Air 2 comes with powerful apps for the things you do every day, like surfing the web, checking email, editing movies and photos, writing reports and reading books. And there are hundreds of thousands of apps on the App Store, designed specifically for the large Retina display (instead of being stretched-out phone apps). So whether it’s photography, gaming, travelling or managing your finances, you’ll find an app that will help you do it better.
