Apple created a lot of buzz in the market with the launch of iPad Air and it was well received by both critics and the customers. However, the launch of new iPad Air 2 is quite challenging because Apple will have to make sure that they offer something better to the customers who are already in love with the earlier version. Let’s take a quick look at the top features of Apple iPad Air 2 in this brief review.
In terms of design, Apple seems to have run out of ideas now and therefore the least they could do it make it thinner and lighter. The new iPad Air 2 is 18% thinner than the previous version at 6.1 mm and lighter as well weighing only 437 grams. In comparison with the earlier model this one has slightly more angular design that enhances the premium feel factor. The mute button has disappeared which is quite surprising as it was quite handy option. The 9.7 inch display offers better display with 264 ppi to offer better viewing experience.
The new iPad Air 2 also comes with the Touch ID technology that offers better security based on the fingerprint scan. It not just adds a security measure, but also makes shopping easier in iTunes, iBooks and the App Store.
The camera on the iPad Air 2 is very much on the same lines as iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with enhanced panoramas, time lapse and slow motion video capture and post snap editing features. The new iSight camera is certainly the best camera on the iPad so far.
Connectivity is another segment where iPad Air 2 gets better with Wi-Fi which is more than twice as fast as the earlier generation iPad Air. It also gets the new advanced iOS8 mobile operating system that takes full advantage of the powerful A8X chip inside it.
