Apple iPad Air 2 - the thinnest tablet in the world

It is no secret that the first iPad was a huge leap forward in the tablet development. iPads have gained fame and now are an integral part of our everyday lives. It is safe to say that Apple sets the trend for tablets.

With its iPad Air, the Apple Corporation turns over a new leaf in the history of tablets. The second model of the Air line is Apple iPad Air 2.

It may seem that there is no difference between Air and Air 2, but in reality they have significant differences.

The first thing that attracts attention is lightness and thinness of the gadget. Aluminum case is very thin, only 6.1 mm and the device weighs hardly noticeable 444 g.

Apple decided to remove the screen lock button but the volume adjustment buttons did not change their location and now they are a bit longer.

9,7-inch Retina display of iPad Air 2 delivers excellent color saturation, 2048x1536 pixel resolution, 264 ppi density, and anti-reflective coating which offers the user a perfect image.

New iPad Air has the 8 megapixel iSight camera, so users can take beautiful pictures or capture important moments. Such shooting modes as Burst Mode, time-lapse, and slo-mo are new in this model.

The most expected and major change in iPad Air 2 is Touch ID fingerprint scanner. This scanner can be used to unlock the tablet. iOS 8 allows registering up to 5 fingerprints. Touch ID can be used for purchasing and downloading applications in App Store, for making purchases on the Internet via Apple Pay payment system.

Air 2’s got a new 3-core processor A8X clocked at 1.5 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. Thanks to these specifications, the tablet shows incredible results. Productivity of Air 2 has increased by 68% in comparison with previous generations of iPad Air.

This gadget is a real catch for gamers thanks to the new CPU and 8-core PowerVR GPU.

Nano-SIM standard is still being used for tablet in mobile networks.

Apple claims the battery life of this device is 10 hours. The Lightning cable is used for charging the device.

The fans of golden cases are lucky when it comes to Air 2 color schemes. This time Apple produced iPad Air 2 in three well-known colors: white, grey, and golden.

Models come with three different memory options 16, 64, and 128 GB.

In the US, prices for the gadgets with the cellular data plan equal $499, $599, and $699 for 16, 64, and 128 GB models respectively. Without a data plan the price is $629 for 16 GB, $729 and $829 for 64 and 128 GB models.

Despite such steep prices, iPad Air 2 can be called a truly unique product and a benchmark among tablets.
