Thinner and more powerful than ever before, Apple’s new 16GB Wi-Fi iPad Air 2 packs massive power into a device that you won’t want to put down. Featuring a brand new processor, next generation Retina display, Touch ID and enhanced cameras, iPad Air 2 does everything better.
Thinner and lighter than ever before
iPad Air 2 is 18% thinner than the original iPad Air. Measuring just 6.1mm thick and weighing less than 450 grams, you’ll never want to put it down. This incredible feat of fusing performance with portability is achieved by using an amazingly light yet durable aluminium unibody that ensures that you can feel the quality and an astonishingly thing display that looks better than ever. It’s easy to hold in one hand, it’ll never be a burden to take with you.
Enhanced Retina display
iPad Air 2 features a newly crafted Retina display that is not only thinner, but also better than ever before. Previous iPads have displays made of three separate components. iPad Air 2 combines these three layers into one, eliminating any gaps between them, reducing internal reflectance and resulting in richer colours, greater contrast and sharper, more vivid images. A new anti-reflective coating further reduces possible glare, making it easier to view and interact with content wherever you are. Screen sensitivity has also been improved to ensure faster, more accurate tracking of your gestures.
iPad Air 2 is the fastest, most powerful iPad ever thanks to its 64-bit A8X chip and M8 motion coprocessor. The A8X delivers speed and graphics that are comparable to personal computers. It’s up to 40% faster than the previous iPad Air, meaning that everything from launching apps to playing games and editing videos is more fluid and responsive. Graphical performance is enhanced to the point where console-like graphics are possible in games while design, editing and 3D modelling apps come to life with unbelievable responsiveness.
The M8 motion coprocessor works with the A8X to ensure efficiency. It continuously measures data from the accelerometer, compass, gyroscope and a new barometer, helping to preserve power and maintain a battery life that will last for up to 10 hours.
Taking security seriously
iPad Air 2 features an unprecedented level of security thanks to Touch ID. Touch ID lets you use your fingerprint as your password, letting you unlock your iPad or make secure purchases on the App Store, iTunes and iBooks. Your fingerprint information stays on your iPad- it’s not shared with anyone, even Apple, helping to ensure that your personal information remains private.
Two amazing cameras
Take incredible photos and videos with the amazing iSight and FaceTime HD cameras. The new iSight camera features an 8 megapixel sensor that can capture images in 3264 x 2448 pixels and videos in Full HD 1080p. That ensures that your images stay sharp and clear, even on larger screens. An improved image processor is better at detecting faces and keeping them in focus, as well as reducing noise to ensure cleaner, sharper images.
The front-facing FaceTime HD camera features a wider aperture, all new sensor and larger pixels to improve performance in low light. As a result, video calls on iPad Air 2 are so clear that it almost feels as if you’re in the same room. Combine that with dual microphones that work intelligently to reduce excess noise and collect more of the sounds that matter, and you’ll find video calls on iPad Air 2 sound as natural as talking to the person next to you.
iOS 8 features a beautiful, easy-to-use interface, amazing features and security at its core, making your iPad more capable than ever. The new Continuity feature makes all of your Apple products more connected, allowing you to move seamlessly between devices, editing email drafts, sharing your browser history and even answering calls on your iPad or Mac. The QuickType keyboard makes typing easier by suggesting appropriate words that match your context, even remembering the tone you use when talking to different people.
iOS 8 makes it easier to access and share your files. iCloud Drive lets you store presentations, spreadsheets, PDFs, images and other important documents so that you can access them from all of your devices. Family Sharing lets a family of up to six people share purchases from iTunes, iBooks and the App Store, and makes it even easier to share photos and joint calendars with one another.
Apps: Made for iPad
iOS 8 opens the door for enhancements to both new and familiar apps that feel natural, making change a breeze to get used to. Tap an event or phone number in Mail to add it to your calendar or contacts. Find bookmarks, reading lists and shared links more easily with the new sidebar. Existing apps have been enhanced, while new apps, like Photos, make it easier than ever to access, organise and interact with your favourite tools.
There are hundreds of thousands of app available for download from the App store that cover everything from gaming and productivity to home improvement and cooking. There are apps to make amazing movies from your video clips and bring your photos to life. Apps that work with technology available to help you map out the stars, improve your sporting skills and scan paper documents for saving sending and editing.
With 802.11ac Wi-Fi and MIMO support, iPad Air 2 gives you faster than ever wireless speeds, so you can browse, share, stream and download at a pace of up to 866 Mbps- that’s as much as 2.8 times faster than previous models.
