Apple Release the Ultra Thin iPad Air 2 Loose

Apple’s new tablet-collection, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, is published. They are slimmer, lighter and faster-and then they can accommodate your credit card.

Apple’s invited the world’s press to Headquarters in Cupertino to showcase Apple-Tablet anno 2014. After 225 million iPads sold are markets gradually by being filled with stagnant sales volume among tablets as a consequence.

Apple must therefore renew the series, either to draw new customers into the store, or convince existing iPad users that they need something new. For this purpose create Apple iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.

Thin on the outside, intelligent inside

But how can we improve a product which already is thin, lightweight and fast? You make it thinner, much thinner and lighter and faster – but at the same time build a new feature: Touch ID. The fingerprint reader is, as in the iPhone, at the heart of the home button, and works exactly the same way.

Seen from the front is the new iPads nærmests unchanged, the screen on both iPads offers 2048 x 1536 resolution spread over 7.9 and 9.7 inch respectively in 4:3 ratio, with 56% less flare. To find Apple’s penchant for brushed aluminum, but can now also available in gold colored aluminum iPad.

But the profile is the main attraction in the iPad Air 2: it is now just 6.1 mm thin, half as thin as the original iPad 1. The smaller iPad mini 3, share profile with its predecessor, and is 7 mm thick.


A8X – Xtra strong

Down in the engine room offers Apple in with a revised version of the iPhone’s processor, A8X. In the new power plant is more muscular, the graphics processor to provide better graphics for the many pixels screen contains. RAM remains at 1 GB and iPad Air still depends on Apple’s optimiersinger in order to ensure profits for multitasking and heavy duty applications.

Apple promises therefore 40% higher performance, but in the case of graphical tasks are graphics part is now 150% higher than those of its predecessor.

Do you hear the crowd of iPad-photographers there is good news on the way. Resolution gets a boost to 8 megapixels while the front camera captures images of 2 megapixels. The cameras share the brain with iPhone 6 1950s and ensures excellent image processing, as well as HDR, burst, time-lapse functions, as well as 5 x slow-motion.

iPad and iPad mini Air 2 3 can be pre-ordered from tomorrow. Availability from d. 24 October.
