iPad Air 2, Launched in Apple Event, it's Thinner, Lighter, Faster, and Better Shielded
Alongside iPad Mini 3 was iPad Air 2. On October 16, Apple revealed their new iPad Air as expected. Is it just me or the latest Apple devices are either similar to their respective predecessor or thinner?
iPad Air 2 is the thinnest of its kind, and it's soon going to strut the market run-way starting October 17. It now comes in another color variant: Gold. Also, the Air 2 will now come with the popular Touch ID sensor. Lastly, the new iPad comes with the latest processor A8X, and its M8 motion co-processor. These are the major changes for the new iPad Air.
To be exact, the new iPad Air 2 is 18% thinner than its predecessor, given the fact that the predecessor was already very thin. Air 2 is now only 6.1mm 'thick'. The iPad Mini is actually looking thicker now if you compare the two tablets. Naturally, the Air 2 is lighter than the previous iPad Air, but the length and width remain the same at 240mm x 169.5mm. The Air 2 now only weighs 437 grams for the Wi-Fi only, and 444 grams for the cellular version.
The Touch ID feature is similar to the iPhone's. You can use the feature to unlock your Air 2 or log-in to your apps. You can also use it for Apple Pay to do your online shopping. Just don't expect to use the Air 2's Apple Pay feature to do your actual shopping outside the worldwide web. This separates the Air 2 from the recent iPhone and Apple Watch capabilities.
Other than that, Apple claims they redesigned the iPad Air 2 display, and added an anti-reflective coating, and a fully laminated display. Air 2 graphics is 2.5x faster and its Wi-Fi connectivity is also better. You can now have the Burst shooting mode and the Slow-mo video shooting. It also comes with a barometer. Only the Air 2 gets these features as an iPad.
