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 won't turn on Picked up my ipad air from Waitrose in Brighton, excellent service from John Lewis. Ipad air seemed wonderful, I set it up on Saturday evening. Enjoyed getting to know it as have purchased it for my work (self employed) However on Sunday evening the screen went black and the ipad appeared to have turned itself off ( it still had 70% power at the time) and I cannot get it to turn on again, and so am sitting looking at a new ipad air with a dead black screen. Can't contact John Lewis as it's Sunday evening. Extremely upsetting and frustrating,Especially as I am going to need an ipad for work this week . 07 July 2014
No information I bought the Ipad air today at Solihull. So far I am very disappointed. There is absolutely no information on setup process, I have tried unsuccesfully to set up. I am now downloading 140 pages of manual to see if that helps. So not a good buy so far. 03 July 2014
The best iPad ever Having owned almost every iPad model since the original iPad 1, I have accepted that any change between models is usually marginal. Whilst there have been improvements in speed, perhaps the biggest jump was when Apple released the first iPad with retina screen several years ago. Well they have done it again, the iPad air redefines the iPad experience by reducing the physical size and weight of the larger iPad yet without compromising on screen size. As always the build quality and engineering of this product are first class, no plastics here. When compared to previous iPad models (excluding the mini of course) the new iPad Air is noticeably narrower. This has been achieved by reducing the bezel area either side of the screen, yet it does not compromise in any way using the device. The Air is also thinner than all previous iPads, not that it was thick before. The result is a very noticeable reduction in weight, almost a quarter when compared to previous models. This iPad really does feel light when you pick it up, especially when compared to the previous model. The result is that its less tiring to hold for long periods. Despite these changes, battery life is still as good as if not better than previous models with usage easily running into a full day or 8-10 hrs. The screen whilst still retina also looks even better, more colourful, more vibrant. Combined with Apple's iOS7 (and soon to be iOS8) you get an experience that only could come from Apple. The latest processor ensures the iPad Air is always fast and responsive, I noticed no delay in opening apps or when switching either. You get WiFi of course, Bluetooth, AirDrop (basically a restricted type of file transfer to other compatible Apple devices), the new lightning charging and sync port and a decent rear and front HD camera. I would recommend the first thing you do though is to put the iPad Air in a case. I went for the rather pricey but light and well made Apple Smart Case else the Air feels a bit slippery! 27 June 2014
