Apple once again surprise people by bringing new iPad Air instead of expected iPad 5 with some interesting features and specs.
The iPad Air is currently the best iPad that company have ever produced. The iPad Air is another evolutionary step for Apple’s tablet, and that means improving the shape and heft of it and giving its innards an upgrade too.
The new iPad isn’t cheaper, and there are no barnstorming new features – so for example the TouchID fingerprint scanner hasn’t made its way across from the iPhone 5S – and of course rivals are catching up.
Here are the key differences between the new iPad Air and the outgoing iPad 4.
The move to retina displays made the previous iPad considerably more precious than its predecessor, the iPad Air is 20 percent thinner at just 7.5mm.
The new iPad is about 2.2mm thinner than the outgoing iPad 4 and more than a millimeter thinner than Google’s Nexus 10 or Nokia’s 2520, and it makes a surprising difference to the way the iPad Air looks.
Apple not only reduce the thickness of the new iPad but the company also reduces the weight of the device. The iPad Air weight is just one pound, or 469g in real money. The iPad 4 is 635g, which makes it tiring to hold for long periods.
This new iPad should be considerably more comfortable for longer.
Small in size:
The iPad Air not only loss its thickness and weight but also a millimeter small then the iPad 4.The thinner sides do make a difference, while the screen remains unchanged the useless area around it is significantly slimmer, once again making the device more portable and more comfortable to hold for long periods.
The iPad Air gets Apple’s most powerful mobile processor, the A7 64-bit which runs eight times faster than the original iPad.
The processor improve the graphics performance two times better than the iPad 4, performance is two times faster, twerking videos are two times twerkier and so on.
It isn’t two times greedier, though: Apple promises that you’ll get the same ten-hour battery life of its other iPads. The iPad Air also gets the M7 motion sensing chip from the iPhone 5S.
It doesn’t get the ultra-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi that Apple’s rolling out in its laptops, but the radio in the iPad Air is still much better than before: it’s the first iPad to get MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) multiple antennas for its 802.11n Wi-Fi, which means it’s capable of up to 300Mbps downloads.
It can also connect to slower 802.11a/b/g networks, and it supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands.
