Apple iPad Air, Apple A7, iOS 7, 9.7”, Wi-Fi, 32GB, Silver

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.

Fab Air Replaced my iPad II . This is lighter & so far good. Ordered on line collected the goods from my new local store next day! Great service. 09 July 2014
My new best friend I am not that technically minded so started up the iPad with a little trepidation. But, follow the instructions and all is well, each day I discover something new, this is a great item for everyone. 09 July 2014
Appe I-pad air Fantastic device works very well and very speedy. Lovely looking as well. 08 July 2014
iPad Air 32GB - Great product I recently purchased the iPad Air from John Lewis after doing a lot of research and they were found to be the best outlet with a 3 year guarantee. The iPad Air has an incredible clear screen, very easy to setup and use. I used the same user id for the login to iCloud as my iPhone, that way all my contacts and any music or APPS that you purchased on your iPhone are also transferred to the iPad. The iPad is very fast, the main advantage of this tablet over laptops etc. is that when you switch on it is immediate to use, no delays in waiting for the operating system to load. I also use it for download Kindle books from Amazon, many are free but as I am in IT I can download a technical book in seconds. All you need to do is to install the Kindle free APP. Although iPads are very expensive compared to Androids tablets, but the build, design and the number of APPS are far superior. I would highly recommend this product and John Lewis as a supplier. 25 June 2014
superb Ipad Air I bought this to replace an Ipad 2, to which the Air is as light as a feather. Its quicker and better at multi-tasking and while the change in connectors is a pain, its only a minor inconvenience. If you're thinking of buying this, please do and you won't be disappointed 24 June 2014
Apple I pad air Absolutely great for less-than-confident users. Very quickly became proficient at using the i-pad despite some nervousness. Instant response puts it streets ahead of traditional laptop or notebook. Only drawback is difficulty in printing from i pad - am told it is possible but complicated so haven't tried. John Lewis have been brilliant in replacing one that developed a manufacturing fault (glass cracked with no mistreatment) within first week. 18 June 2014
Excellent 18th Birthday present We bought this for my daughter, can't fault the product at all, great for her studies as takes very little room on a table, fast and reliable. Would recommend I pad air to everyone - very light & easy to carry 04 June 2014
iPad Air This tablet is extremely intuitive and therefore easy to use. The setup was very straightforward and I am delighted with my purchase. It is very light and so much faster for browsing than my laptop. I ordered online and collected from my local Waitrose - very easy. 03 June 2014
