Apple’s iPad sales have gone down over the past few years. This has mainly been attributed to Google’s Android OS and Android Tablet and Phablet manufacturers stepping up their game. Apple is currently looking to turn this around with a new and updated lineup.
Apple’s iPad Air 2 has a 9.7” Retina display, and benefits from a new anti-reflective coating. The anti-reflective coating reduces reflection by 50%. Apple’s iPad Air 2 is powered by a 64-bit A8X processor.
Apple has been obsessing with making thinner devices. The iPad Air 2’s LCD, touch sensor, and glass have been joined together. The iPad Air 2 measures 6.1 mm in thickness, making it 18% thinner than the previous iPad Air.
Apple’s iPad Air 2 now has an 8 MP camera, which is revamped with slo-mo video capabilities, Touch ID, Bluetooth 4.1, and of course 802.11ac wireless. Apple’s iPad Air 2 is now available in Silver, Gold, and Space Gray colors.
Apple is still holding on to the 16 GB model of the iPad Air 2 and it is priced at $499. The next storage option is 64 GB, which is priced at $599. The 128 GB iPad Air 2 model is priced at $699. Again, selecting LTE with the respective models will add $130 to the price.
