Apple has recently announced the all new Apple iPad Air 2 and some of you might be wondering what’s new in iPad Air 2. Here is what’s new in iPad Air 2
Every time Apple launches a new device one thing you can tell for sure is, it is Thinner than the previous model. Apple has made this a habit and this one feature is the safest bet when someone asks you what’s new in Apple’s so and so new device.
This time also it’s no different, although given the thickness of iPad Air one would most certainly wonder how Apple managed to do it once again.
Apple has further reduced the thickness of the original iPad Air’s and achieved an 18% thinner body for iPad Air 2. Apple iPad Air 2 is just 6.1mm thick and weighs 437grams, the slickest tablet one can get in the market right now!
Laminated screen with Antiglare
Though its screen size and resolution remain the same as that of its predecessor, iPad Air 2 got a major upgrade in the display department. Apple has fused three layers (touch sensor, LCD panel and cover glass) into one fully-laminated layer, which results in vibrant colours and greater contrast.
Apple has also added an anti-glare coating on the screen of iPad Air 2 which is said to reduce the glare by 56%
iPad Air 2’s A8X processor, which is based on 64-bit chipset architecture, delivers better performance than its predecessor without sacrificing the battery life.
The chip processes applications 40% faster and renders graphics 2.5 times faster, but still ensures average battery life of 10 hours.
iPad Air 3 has a 8MP rear camera that can record 1080p, time-lapse and slow-motion videos, capture 43MP panorama photos and, finally, also offer Burst mode.
The front camera of iPad Air 2 has a larger aperture compared to its predecessor at f/2.2, thus letting in 81% more light for better video calls even under low-light conditions.
Touch ID fingerprint sensor
Touch ID fingerprint sensor finally makes its way to iPad with iPad Air 2. It can be used to not only unlock the tablet, but also to authorize passwords within apps and purchase/download content via iTunes, iBooks and App Store.
As it works with the new Apple Pay technology, it can be used to make online payments via a swipe of the finger. But how many people will carry their iPad to make the payment using it will be a good question for the poll!!
Did anyone say Gold?
Just like iPhone 5S, 6 and 6 Plus, the iPad Air 2 has a pale gold hue. Other colour options for iPad Air 3 are silver and space gray.
