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.

Please Note: Your new iPad will arrive with iOS 7 installed. iOS 8 can be installed over Wi-Fi or a cellular connection by opening the Settings app, tapping on 'General' and then selecting 'Software Update' and 'Download'.
Alternatively, you can connect your iPad to your internet enabled computer running iTunes by opening iTunes, selecting your iPad, clicking 'Check for Updates' and then 'Download and Update'.
