Product information

With its all new design, the iPad Air is packed with advanced technology, yet, somehow, thinner and lighter than ever before. It features a 9.7-inch Retina display, 64-bit A7 chip and ultra-fast wireless, with access to over 500,000 of your favourite apps directly from the app store.

All-new design
iPad Air has been carefully crafted to deliver a sleeker, thinner iPad without compromising on technology. It’s just 7.5mm thin and weighs less than half a kilo, with the weight perfectly distributed to sit comfortably in your hands. An aluminium unibody ensures that the iPad Air feels solid yet light in your hand, while thinner bezels ensure that the astounding Retina display takes your focus. The familiar Home, volume, Sleep/Wake buttons and Side Switch are wonderfully refined and durable thanks to their metallic construction.

Smooth performance
Combining Apple’s new 64-bit A7 chip and M7 coprocessor in the iPad Air gives you more speed and performance to do what you want, without compromising on battery life. The A7 allows apps and games to run faster and respond quicker, with superior support for more detailed graphics and visual effects, comparable to those only previously seen on desktop computers and games consoles. The 64-bit architecture supports both the older apps that you love as well as newer, more robust apps that make more possible on an iPad Air. The M7 coprocessor measures motion through the gyroscope, accelerometer and compass, to enable apps to give you a better experience on the go. This allows iPad Air to maintain the same great battery life that you expect from an iPad.

iOS 7- a new perspective
iPad Air will arrive in your hands with iOS 7 installed. iOS 7 has been redesigned with a beautiful new look, easy-to-use interface, amazing features and improved security. Smarter multitasking, Control Centre and AirDrop combined with iCloud makes using an iPad even simpler than ever. And with apps like iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote included, you’re in a better position than ever to enjoy the best of iPad.

Details that matter
The astonishing 9.7-inch Retina display comprises of 3.1 million pixels at a resolution of 2048x1536, displaying incredible detail in your photos and videos and ensuring that text looks sharp and well defined. The thinner bezel on iPad Air makes the display more prominent than ever, with images brought to life right in front of you thanks to an expansive colour palette.

Faster Wi-Fi
iPad Air features two antennas and MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple Output) technology to help you get the most out of your router and internet connection. MIMO combines with dual-band wireless, delivering download speeds that are potentially twice as fast as previous generations, reaching up to 300Mbps.

Capture it in HD
Dual cameras on iPad Air give you plenty to smile for. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera is great for online video chats, with a next-generation backside illuminated sensor with larger pixels helping to brighten your calls and selfies, even in low-light. On the back of iPad Air, a 5 megapixel iSight camera will help you snap your shot or full HD video at a moment’s notice, with the A7 processor making the adjustments needed to ensure a great picture or video automatically.

Ipad Air 128gb Excellent machine. Already have old mini but the display on this is fantastic. Not paricularly cheap but I suppose you get what you pay for. When giving lectures or reading it is so light in the hand and feels good to the touch. 25 March 2014
Excellent iPad Air does not disappoint easy to use I have 128 GB version so download films no problem. Would recommend John lewis efficient as usual click and collect very good 18 March 2014
Good buy! Little apprehensive about spending on 128 gb model but really glad I did as am greatly enjoying using IPad in all sorts of situations. Have wifi only model and find some places have more free wifi available than others ....but didn't want to pay for sim . Lightweight easy to carry have bought apple flip cover as we'll. don't know if I'll use my laptop ever again? 13 March 2014
Great bit of kit. Bought my wife an iPad air for Christmas and thought it was so good,I bought one for myself. Not disappointed, it's a great bit of kit. Found that I use it everyday for stuff that I used to do on my PC. So convenient , so easy to use. I love it. 05 February 2014
Love it! After much deliberation we decided to upgrade to the iPad Air, not regretting it at all. Sleek and lightweight, love it! 04 February 2014
Apple iPad Air, Apple A7, iOS 7, 9.7”, Wi-Fi, 128GB, Silver I was a bit unsure about buying this as I already had the ipad 2 and didn't think there would be a lot of difference. How wrong was I !!! It's so much lighter and the speed is much quicker and I love the HD display which makes everything so much clearer. Not one regret since buying this and would definitely recommend. 21 January 2014
Great Ipad Love this new ipad,it is so light and easy to hold. I am sure it does a lot more than I have got to grips with so far. 21 January 2014
Pleasantly surprised I bought this as a replacement because I gave my old one (retina display) to my mother. I must say I'm quite pleasantly surprised as I like it much more than the previous model. The only real noticable difference is in the size and weight. It's definately much nicer to hold when reading an e-book in bed. I'm not sure that it's worth buying one though if you already have the previous retina display iPad as iPad's are expensive and there doesn't seem to be much difference in functionality. There is one thing I'm really disappointed with: the length of the charging (lightning cable) cable. It's too short, the cable for the previous iPad was much longer and far more convenient. As a result I'm having to buy a 2m version of the lightning cable and as with everything apple, they're not cheap. Apart from this small annoyance I'm quite happy with my purchase. Overall, I think this is an improvement over the previous model, but whether it's worth buying when you have the previous model is debatable. 27 December 2013
