Apple iPad Air Specs, Price and Reviews

Description

The iPad Air is Apple’s fifth generation full-sized iPad tablet, and the name is definitelly fitting for this remarkable device. It is only 7.5 millimeters thin and weighs just 469 grams, making it the lightest slate of this size. Its screen is identical to the one we know from its predecessor – a 9.7-inch Retina Display with oleophobic coating and resolution of 1536 by 2048 pixels. Under the hood, Apple has chosen to install its A7 chip, which is the very same 64-bit SoC powering the iPhone 5s. As a result, the new iPad is two times faster than the previous model. With the 5MP iSight camera, one can take detailed photos and 1080p Full HD videos, while the FaceTime HD front-facing snapper is ideal for video chats and self portraits. Connecting to the internet is done either via Wi-Fi, or over a 4G LTE network, should you choose a cellular-enabled iPad Air model. Apple’s iOS 7 operating system is loaded onto the tablet, with iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote apps included at no cost.
