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.

Pensioner takes to the Air! Bought as a present for a novice user of some years! Features and functions explained at purchase by a helpful staff member and the Air proved to be ideal. Currently being used with increasing skill and pleasure. 20 August 2014
You wont be dissappointed Combining the quality of the latest Apple tablet range with the backing of John Lewis as the retailer who offers no quibble extended warranty is a no-brainer. For anyone new to tablets and worried about how they will get on, if you have a digit at the end of your arm, you are 95% ready to go online with this. 19 August 2014
Very useful I purchased my iPad in July and I don't seem to want to put it down as I'm finding it very good for looking up things that I never had the chance of viewing before. I'm also now using twitter, downloading songs through iTunes and I'm extremely pleased with the overall product. I'm very happy with the quality. Best buy I've made in 2014. 19 August 2014
excellent piece of tecnology found the ipad air lived up to all my expectations. It is light easy to hold, the screen is very clear and defined images make this a pleasure to use. Very pleased I chose this product. 16 August 2014
Apple iPad Air, Apple A7, iOS 7, 9.7", Wi-Fi, 16GB A fantastic piece of equipment. I went to look at a whole range of tablets and after talking to the shop assistant I decided upon the iPad Air. The assistant was very good with me as he listened carefully to what I wanted to do on a tablet and he helped me come to my choice and it was a good one. Well done John Lewis. 12 August 2014
Excellent I am past my sell by date but absolutely love this and so easy to use 05 August 2014

Worth every penny! Bought it as a gift for my dad and he loves it. There are many tablets to choose from however none can match the simplicity of iPad Air. It is without doubt the no.1 tablet. 29 July 2014
